This week we found a few projects in our archive that are not yet on the site, but that we don’t want to keep from you!
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!
We received an unusual job from Customer Pieter.
We built a frame for the Suzuki 1 cylinder Off The Road engine. The chassis is composed with powder coated wheels and a One-Off Springer.
It may be a Calimero engine… it has 70 HP!
This Bobber from Jeroen stands for minimizing but getting maximum enjoyment.
In his new home, he has pushed aside the moving boxes in the garage, to make room for this new acquisition.
The first ride goes to Alphen aan de Rijn. With this weather… what more could a person want?
For Arthur we gave the FLT primary case a mechanical look by making it open chain drive.
For our customer Arthur we transformed the Shovel FLT to a Dutch Drag style.
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!
Koen is a great lover of the Zerostyle chopper. After the renovations on his bikes there was an Early Shovel in the corner of the garage, suitable for a new project.
L & L has made the hardtail frame to koen’s desired specifications and because of his busy profession, and therefore a shortage of free time, we also helped with the design.
Air filters exist in different variations, in the latest projects we have used a chalice version a number of times.
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!
Customer Old Skool Coen comes from the idyllic village of De Rijp in North Holland. After a number of visits, construction started, partly thanks to his enthusiastic girlfriend.
In his examples there were, in our opinion, a bit too many black parts. But in consultation, a brilliant Chopper will be put on the road.
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!
