Default Single loop silver painted shovel

Back in 1976-78 maybe Hot Bike, Street Chopper or Chopper magazine cover bike, any one have a copy of the cover pic or article. It fit into the hot rod chop craze of that time. I thought I had the magazine save but can't find it now.

Joe, I found that picture on a 1980 Easyrider's calendar. I'm pretty sure it was a staff bike, maybe Bandit or Spider. I have one of their staff bike books and I'll check to make sure it is in there.

on a similar question,
back in about 78-79 easyrider featured an all Silver Shovel Chop with a Sportster Tank & I THINK a spun Aluminium oil tank also silver, everything on it was either blasted stainless or ally or satin Silver & the only shiny parts were the fork tubes,
very Simple & not 'IN YA FACE' like many bikes then were
it was described in the write up as looking like a 'jet fighter' in quality of build & by the look of the finished parts,
I saw it at a custom show in the Javits Centre in New Youk in about April 79..Had to get there from Long Island in about a foot of snow !! hell of a trip,
I have looked on & off for years for pictures of it without luck,
if any of you out there have any ER mags with it I would appreciate details of what edition it was in so I can get a back copy off of ebay or the like.
when I built my 45 Magnum I kinda tried for the same or similar look but it wasn't quite right........

That silver Shovel was also in Easyrider “Best Bikes” Special Issue #1.
It has a silver XL on the cover but that single tube bike is a feature inside.

I have it but it’s buried in a box on a shelf somewhere.
