We started with the construction of a Highneck Chopper for Michel. We’re going to use an Early Shovel block and a 5-speed with kickstarter.
The hardtail frame is specifically built to let the smooth lines come out nicely. Both the above and rear tubes are curved in a radius. The wheels are from billet aluminum and the brakesystem will be a hydra drum brake.
Are you inspired by the Discovery series Harley and the Davidsons? We sure are! It’s nice to see the competition between Harley Davidson and Indian (now topical again).
In our hearts the founders were real men, how they started is really awesome and very recognizable. In the series, it’s also great to see that a group of men (and a women!) were tinkering with each other, the basis for a real motorcycle club.
Racing with motorcycles is not really our thing, but it sure feels good. That’s why we don’t want you to miss this; the KH Boardtracker version.
The front and rear wheels are both 21 inch with original drums. Home made tank from that era, a few rough looking exhausts, round oil tank with a see-through glass and brass cap, steering wheel with reverse handles and wooden handles on an I Beam springer.
We are still working to bring the shift side a bit more from the right to the left. because this shifts somewhat more pleasant.
It isn’t old and it isn’t new, but a style throughout the years.
Trends come and go. The Gooseneck is not only suitable for a 70s style, but also suitable for a mix of styles. The Retro Springer, Wassel tank, the Early Shovel block with new technology and a 5 gearbox with hydra clutch.
The liberator is an engine that is used more and more in the Chopper – Old Skool builds, that’s why we are working on a frame where not only the engine but also the original gearbox and casting is used.
Here you can see a hardtail frame with an I-Beam connection between the block and the triple tree. This frame is made for a Dyna TwinCam block and transmission. Further more we have a 18-inch rear wheel with brass spoke nipples and a 200 tire mounted on the chopper. The front wheel is 23-inch.
The rear fork of the springer is an I-beam design and the front of the springer is going to be something special. The tank, exhaust pipes and rear fender are also Homemade.
Hans and Annemieke already had the KH for several years at home to restore, but maybe you know the program; My husband is a handyman … !?
The KH 1956 sportster sits between the Liberator and the Ironhead Sportster. It is an engine that we have not used before. For the design we chose a hardtail with a single downtube. The front and rear wheel are both 21 inches. Both back and front with the original drum brakes and special tires.
The springer is in an I Beam version and many details will follow!
