Out of curiosity Rik visited the open days in the shop in Rijen. Once inside, while enjoying a cup of coffee, he saw the Boardtrackers.
The thing is Rik had still a little project laying around, a Triumph and after weeks of bad sleep he wanted to do something with it. He decided that he wanted to build a Boardtracker with his Triumph.
When delivering the engine, Rik indicated that he would like to be surprised, this is obviously very risky, because then the bucket of inspiration and creativity at L&L flows over! A must is the 23 inch narrow rims and tires with line profile, the 30’s tank and a special springer.
The customer wanted a Highneck Chopper for this project. The frame is equipped with a curved tank tube that will run over the tank. We also bent the front in the same radius.
We’ve now mounted a temporary fork with wheels to get an impression. The next job will be the pulley with the disc brake combination.
To be continued!
We had already built a Chopper for Frank, who is 2 meters long and 1 meter wide.
Now he wanted to put on the finishing touches. A motor mount in style!
New motor mount
For the Swedish project we are going to use an 18″ traditional multi-spoke rear wheel.
The front wheel is 23″ and the spokes are straight. The hub, spokes and rim are completely from stainless steel.

For the people who didn’t know yet, we grew up 40 years ago (we are so old 😉) with Swedish Choppers.
Through a single Swedish magazine, Ride and Glide, we were hooked. As a result, sleepless nights when thinking of a Chopper.
Typically, the wide tire (130 band was the widest tire at that time), and a 20 inch fork with degrees in the triple trees so that even with one hand, the chopper was easy to handle.
This style has been gone for a long time, but we were able to make a Home-made, one-off frame again.
To be continued!
Soon we can rejoice customer David with his Old Skool Chopper.
We have taken care of the engine block, black with ribs, valve covers and brass details.
The rear fork of the retro springer is painted in Rootbeer color, the homemade fork is matt chrome and gets a rugged look due to the ball cartridges.
Here we used a Sportster 2006 model as a donor motor for Jeroen.
As you can see, we have applied only the minimal yet sufficient shape to create the spartan Harley feel.
It’s not only the design that’s important in the chopper construction.
But the paintjob is also crucial, here are some examples.
With an engine and a separate gearbox, we work mostly with a primary cover and a chain or beltdrive, but in this project we have chosen to combine them.
This chopper is for sale and is 90% “Ready To Go”.
As you can expect from L&L, this chopper is delivered including the correct self-build license plate associated with the original HD block (from the box).
The chopper has run +/- 1500 km and has a 5 speed gearbox. If you want a different fork, this is negotiable.
All real bids are welcome!
