The Steel Horse, Liberty Chop Shop & Liberty City Cycles Zombie is a Harley-Davidson styled motorbike featured in GTA IV, made by Steel Horse and a variant of the Zombie is made by Liberty Chop Shop.

Design

Manufactured by Steel Horse and Liberty Chop Shop, the Zombie resembles a custom Harley-Davidson motorcycle with a rigid body frame, as evidenced by the lack of a separate rear suspension module. The engine is a chain-driven, two-cylinder V-Twin internal combustion engine with a manual transmission, as evidenced by the foot-actuated gear shifter. The Zombie has elongated "ape hanger" type handlebars, which make cornering difficult with the increased sweep caused by the handle arms.

The Zombie is a favorite of The Lost Brotherhood biker gang. The Lost's Zombie, internally named "zombieb", is distinguishable by its "redwall" tires (compared to the conventional variant's whitewall tires), black rims, black panelings and frame, a custom gas tank with custom pin striping, an oversized carburetor on the right side of the engine, and a repositioned jolly roger on the gas tank lid. The Lost Zombies can be found in Acter, near Gracie Ancelotti's house, but are quite rare.

Performance

While able to reach a decent top speed, the Zombie's handling suffers due to the oversized front tire, and the bike is susceptible to oversteer. It can only do wheelies from high revs, and by transferring weight to the back before taking off.

The Zombie has mostly good handling. Its speed and braking are superior to most motorcycles in GTA IV, compensating for its flaws.
