CCE‘s 2017 Ride Unrivalled Softail: Zassels Custom Bikes retrofit of a 2003 Softail „Deuce“ takes you back to 1947. Cyclist’s Holiday: The “Bolt On And Ride” Bike to go back to the Summer of 1947 in style – the time when the term “biker” was defined in the small town of Hollister/California, which at the weekend of July 4th held its annual motorcycle racing event and “Gypsy Tour”. What happened then and there has become part of the “biker lore” – and has been featured in numerous articles, documentations and movies, not the least “The Wild One” starring Marlon Brando. But forget Brando, this would have been the perfect ride for “Chino”, the “bad guy” character played by the outstanding Lee Marvin – and Zassels Custom Bikes modified a classic Harley-Davidson Twin Cam Softail into a true 1947/48 Bobber, christened as a tribute to the California town, not far from Custom Chrome’s own home in Morgan Hill. The “Bobber” style has become somewhat timeless – and can be applied with ease to almost every Harley-Davidson model of the last 60 years. Including the then extremely custom-styled 2003 FXSTD “Deuce”.
