Here’s one I’ve never heard of before – and it’s still basically new! Meet the Hercules Ultra 80 AC Chopper – boldly displayed on the sidecover for all to see.
Hercules introduced the Ultra 80 in 1981 with a 80cc two-stroke single. There were several models – a standard, a sports “RS”, even a “F” model specifically for riding schools. But what we’re focused on today is the chopper, which was available in LC (liquid cooled) and AC (air cooled) variants. The LC was more expensive as it was equipped with double disc brakes, a more comprehensive dashboard, and a 12V electrical system. The AC had one disc brake up front, a 6V system, and a simpler dash.
This example (VIN: 686019115) has less than 2km on it, and the seller suggests that it’s “possibly the only new one left in the world”. He or she goes on to say that “this bike was acquired by a collector in Germany who found it in the basement of a Zundapp dealer. The family was looking to sell the bike after the passing of the dealer. The original owner of the Hercules had traded it off on a brand new Zundapp, the dealer passed away shortly thereafter and the family decided to store the bike.”
