The structural work of the Triumph Boardtracker is completed. As you can see it consists of a lot of parts, many of them will be chrome plated and the parts that needs to be painted can be blasted and put in the epoxy.
We have opted for a dark color blue. The block will be disassembled, then polished and then the cylinders gets painted. As the cream of the crop, some rib covers will be made for it.
We have again offered a few frames to the RDW for the engraving of a frame number. The registration of the frame and associated gearbox and block is the way to obtain an official registration certificate and only applies for the Dutch market.
Now we can start with the structural work for customer Pieter. The frame is custom made because Pieter is almost 2 meters.
So many people, so many styles. The tastes of the customers vary widely and that is a new challenge for us every time.
At the moment we have two that can’t be more opposite of each other, a Highneck with all tubes in a curved shape and a race model with a set of Japanese wheels and up-side down fork with custom triple trees.
So many people, so many wishes. The first frame is for a Belgian customer who has a Sportster block laying around. We will supply the racing wheels, the upside-down fork with plates and give it a little bit of shaping.
The second frame is for the Dyna donor and goes to France.
The latter are for the Evo with 5 gears in a Highneck version on hardtail and softail basis.
We are now one step further in the construction process of the Boardtracker.
The petrol tank is matched to the pump because it is a petrol injection engine block. Furthermore, the rear wheel is aligned and by customizing the chain we also know the position, this is necessary to make the fixings on the mudguard.
The customer Pieter has opted for a mudguard with a short appearance.
Time for an update on Yuri’s Swedish Chopper. The pulley and brake disc have been measured and just made. The wheel is aligned and the length of the belt is determined so that we know the position of the wheel.
The disc is behind the pullover to keep the view side of the Chopper as bare as possible, less is more! The next step is to determine the position of the caliper and shape the fender.
Customer Joost has purchased a donor Sportster with a Bobber Attackkit, but was too busy and had not yet started the project seriously.
With the help of L&L most of the donor parts have been processed in the Bobber, but a few new parts have also been used. L&L did the construction work, had the Bobber inspected and arranged the registration number. The frame is powder coated, but otherwise remained rough because Joost has not decided on the further finish.
The Bobber is delivered roadworthy, so who knows, the inspiration might come during a ride!
