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.
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.

Client Marc is hired by yacht owners as a captain to sail on the sunny Mediterranean Sea. Marc asked us to build a bike that looked rough and that he could use to show off at his employers.

We can fulfill the wish of Youngster Rino. At this moment we are testing.
It remains, even after 30 years, a kick to start the first round on a freshly completed creation.
Customer Johan wanted to have a motor built and had some specific wishes. See here the result.

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!
For customer Bert we have built a hardtail with an evo block and a 5 speed gearbox. This is fitted with thick spoke wheels, which is very popular at the moment.

For David we’ve built a Vintage Boardtracker with a ribbed theme. The single downtube frame with powder-coated 23-inch wheels and the retro jumper can not be ignored, of course.

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.

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.

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.

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.

On this project we’ve made everything thicker for the customer. A 200mm front tire with an extra thick and wide springer and a softail frame with extra thick tubes. Not to mention a 1600 cc Panhead block and a 240 mm rear tire.
