The KH 1952 Sportster falls in between the Liberator and the Ironhead Sportster. It is something that we have not used before.
For the design we opted for a Hardtail with a single downtube.
The front and rear wheel are both 21 inch. Both the rear and the front have the original drum brakes and are fitted with special tires.
The springer is in an I Beam version with lots of details such as a 20s tank with homemade cap, an oil tank with see through glasses and copper pipes, a boardtracker seat and the foot switch that has been brought from right to left!
Gary, a fanatic builder from London, was looking for a special hardtail frame for his Rocker. A rear tire of 240 mm, a low seating position and a spider web were his wishes, he asked if that was possible?
L & L loves challenges and tries to make every wish possible, this is the result!
We’re not really that excited of the oil filter covers from the catalog. So that’s why we designed a vintage oil filter for the TwinCam project that matches perfectly with the black and aluminum of the cylinders.
For Michel, our customer from the Early Shovel Freestyle Chopper, we continued working on the springer front fork. After some time working on the design, this has become the result.
The springer is equipped with ribbed triple trees and we have fitted the front and rear fork with sleeves. The front fork part naturally runs with round shapes to the springs. The whole is completed with a Tillerbar handlebar (formerly a Swedish handlebar).
A customer with a Zero Style Chopper had a handlebar that looked kind of sporty and to stay in this style. After he had been driving around for several years, it was time for this handlebar to give it a Vintage look.
