A few years ago, Thierry, Swiss native now living in Hong Kong, dropped by L&L while working as a pilot. After a good conversation, he went home in the plane with a frame and parts.
“For the story of the bike, I bought all the parts from you guys in the shop on my layovers in AMS. Flew them back myself as a pilot in my plane from AMS to HKG.
The bike was all built in my living room in my house in Hong Kong, and parts fabricated by hand by myself on my mini lathe, mini mill and TIG welder in my small 8m2 shop on the roof top of the house.
I had no prior mechanical skills or knowledge and learnt all the skills from watching You Tube and reading books.
Parts like the oil tank are made from 2 recycled fire extinguishers cut in half and welded together. Many parts are fabricated from raw steel and designed by myself.”
