Revell 1/8 scale L.A. Street Chopper plastic model kit review

Get ready for full-throttle biker nostalgia
FSDWBC0323_01
Revell introduced the original 1/8 scale L.A. Street Chopper plastic model kit just two years after the iconic movie “Easy Rider” premiered, starring Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper. In it, two bikers cross the American South and Southwest by riding choppers. When Revell debuted this wild ride, the chopper craze was in full swing.

While similar to Peter Fonda’s “Captain America” bike from the movie, Revell’s L.A. Street Chopper replicates a Harley-Davidson knucklehead engine and a long, springer fork out front rather than a panhead with hydraulic dampening. Decals provide two different flame colors and styles and a stars-and-bars theme reminiscent of the “Captain America” bike.
