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.

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.
There are a wide variety of forward controls.
We have a budget version with rubber steps 40610 for 295, – (Photo C).
An upgrade is the Conehole 40516DA with brass steps (Photo B).
We also make unique forward controls for projects (Photo A).
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!
The L&L crew believes that 23-inch wheels are the maximum height in terms of design.
But…. we have been seduced by customer Raf and have taken up the challenge to build with 26 inch wheels.
