We are now moving ahead with the build of the Highneck for Michel.
The engine, transmission and rear wheel are aligned, and the hydraulic drum brake is mounted. A gold colored chain is used to transfer the power to the rear wheel.
To connected the frame we’ve used sleeves, so we can get the old frame look and feel. They are going to be chromed.
The bobber from customer Johnny is currently in storage at L&L for the winter. Which is a good time for some minor maintenance.
Every year Johnny makes some small changes to his bobber. This year it was the paintwork.
We used this New Generation Rockerbox for some finishing touches on a Twin Cam custom bike.

Once in a while we get a chopper built by a customer for some small changes or maintenance work.
To give an extra vintage look to a bobber project we’ve used an aluminum Vintage Primary Case, it is based on a metal case of the sixties.

A customer who has reached the age of 60 already drove for a while on his original Sportster with Kings and Queens seat, but didn’t get the 70’s feeling from it.
He contacted us and asked how we could solve this. See here the result a 2011 Sportster with softail frame and a hardtail look.

Kings and Queens
With this frame (10116NG) the lowered seat catches your eyes and is formed with a curved swingarm and a matching Drag Tank (50530). The frame is custom made for each desired engine, fork and band width.

Johan a customer wanted to build a bike and had some specific needs. First, he wanted a nice engine. He also wanted to have airsuspension so that the bike can be lowered on its frame when parking. The front and rear wheels needed to have wide rims, fat tires and special drum brakes. Last but not least he wanted a specially made extra solid Springer fork.
And if we also wanted to make sure that the bike as a whole would have a real Bobber look. This is what we have made so far.

We started with the construction of a Highneck Chopper for Michel. We’re going to use an Early Shovel block and a 5-speed with kickstarter.
The hardtail frame is specifically built to let the smooth lines come out nicely. Both the above and rear tubes are curved in a radius. The wheels are from billet aluminum and the brakesystem will be a hydra drum brake.

Dimitri comes from Belgium and is an entrepreneur in the cleaning business. He has just become a father 08-09-2014, but in addition there will be yet another new member in the family! See here the Sportster Boardtracker project, were the two 23-inch wheels form the basis.

A High Tech Fat Springer (30383JO) tailored for a fat wheel. Available in all lengths and with high-tech shock absorbers in the springs.
Are you inspired by the Discovery series Harley and the Davidsons? We sure are! It’s nice to see the competition between Harley Davidson and Indian (now topical again).
In our hearts the founders were real men, how they started is really awesome and very recognizable. In the series, it’s also great to see that a group of men (and a women!) were tinkering with each other, the basis for a real motorcycle club.
Racing with motorcycles is not really our thing, but it sure feels good. That’s why we don’t want you to miss this; the KH Boardtracker version.
The front and rear wheels are both 21 inch with original drums. Home made tank from that era, a few rough looking exhausts, round oil tank with a see-through glass and brass cap, steering wheel with reverse handles and wooden handles on an I Beam springer.
We are still working to bring the shift side a bit more from the right to the left. because this shifts somewhat more pleasant.
After five years of not having driven the jitters to build something arose again. This came to be because a friend of customer Frank had a engine and transmission that he could take over for a nice price. Frank wanted Highneck in Exile style, bare with not too much craziness.

This new old familiar Evo engine, equipped with 1600 cc in black and chrome, will be used for a Bobber build.
We already have mounted a Horn airfilter and we will also add Knucklehead covers.
To be continued…!
Evo black and chrome 1600cc
For customers Bert we are building a Hardtail to with an Evo engine and a 5 speed gearbox. This is fitted with large spoked wheels, which are very popular.
The rear wheel has a 240 mm tire and a suitable thick rear fender without struds. The springer is in black edition with a 150 mm front tire.
To get the Harley sound we’ve created HM drag pipes that are fitted with silencers. The round oil tank with battery tray nicely fills the space between the block and the rear fender. For the controls we’ve got a forward control set used with holes.
