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!
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.
