Movieclip Tuesday – De Heilige Koe / The Holy Cow

Back in da days, 35 years ago to be precise, we had a tv program called ‘The Holy Cow’ broadcasted by Veronica. The made a documentary of the Superrally 1987 at Slagharen in Holland. Anyway, we were there as well. And some of us apeared in this documentary. Among them Hond and his former girlfriend and in the last shot my younger brother Blut [RIP] on the left side.

When most of us were still struggling with a bicycle or moped, the chopper scene was already well on it’s way. The movie ‘Easy Rider’, witch came out in 1969, certainly contributed to this effect.

But in the years before that it was already happening, given the number of companies that were already involved with ‘chopper’ parts. I will come back to this shortly with some examples.
Below a example of a Sportster chopper which appeared in the January 1974 issue of Street Chopper. This magazine, from TRM Publications Inc., had their first issue in January 1969. Paisano Publications Inc, had their first issue of Easyriders Magazine in June 1971.
