Visiting Japan

Some time ago we explored Japan with a select group. The program included a visit to a bike show, but especially the insights into the small chopper shops were very special.
I have already visited many places in my life; Africa, America, Australia, South America, then you would think you have already experienced everything.
But nothing could be further from the truth … Asia is like visiting a completely different world. It was a very special experience.

A cozy chopper shop, it’s good that the Japanese are a bit smaller
Technology is ahead in Japan, a few cilinders are waiting for further finishing..

Knucklehead heads in a display case, always nice to see.
Everything is possible

23 inch Boardtracker L&L Style from customer Richy – Photoshoot

Customer Richy is every year in Saint Tropez to look at the different creations at the annual “Chopper and Custom Show”.

After years of thinking about joining the show, he went looking for the style that attracted him. Rightly so he arrived at the Boardtracker style, Richy went for the L&L (drag) Boardtracker.

Photoshoot – Yuri’s AttacKIT

You’ve probably already seen a few photos come by from Yuri’s AttacKIT, but now we’ve got the full photoshoot! For the photos click here: Yuri’s AttacKIT

A little recap:

To build a simple Sportster chopper, that was Yuri’s intention, who lives just a stone’s throw away from L&L Choppers. But, as you can see, it has not stayed simple!

Photoshoot – Kings and Queens for Richard

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.

Shinka Chopper – Photoshoot

Normally we tell a story about the project, but now we’ve allowed the customer to speak.

Quincy; I was looking for a Japanese Zero style bobber. The Japanese Zero style is characterized by the angle of the front fork (this is somewhat placed down), the lack of a front fender, the gooseneck at the front of the frame, the relatively small tank and half the rear fender integrated with the rear light.
