This frame is suitable for transferring all the parts to the donor bike. With the standard fork you’ll also have a low ground clearance which is a must to make an Old Skool Chopper.
Customer Arie has let us build this chopper with only modern parts. You can see our DF Dragstyle Softail frame for a 280 mm rear tire, thick black L&L Fat-glide fork and striking Contrast Cut wheels.
We also made a petrol tank with the flowing lines of the chopper, a matching handlebar and of course a few wild performed black exhausts.
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!
We continue to innovate at L&L!
See here a hardtail frame with an I-beam connection from the block to the steering head. This frame is made for a Dyna twincam block and gearbox.
We use a 200 rear tire and a 23-inch front wheel.
We’re also looking at whether we can make something special of the springer that we’re going to use. We’ll keep you updated!
With this frame 1016ST we are going back to the flowerpower times
Zero Style Softail
Customer Arie is letting L&L build a chopper with only modern parts. He is taking it easy, each time whenever he gets some money we’re going to continue to build his dream chopper.
The man doesn’t directly opt for the cheapest parts. So you see our DF drag style frame in Softail version, a thick black covered L&L Fat Glide fork and striking Contrast Cut wheels.
A good start is half the battle. L&L understands that all too well! Therefore, these North-Holland choppers freaks design their own frames and also building is done in-house. Only so can the highest quality be guaranteed and for a good price. Something which remains to be seen for other aftermarket frames. therefore L&L Choppers explicitly has none wholesale frames in their catalog!
What you will find in the ever thickening L & L Bible are the well-known AttacKits for Sporters, which can be obtained in a bobber and chopper version. Do you want a customized frame for your classic Harley, your Evo or Twincam? Of course, no problem. L & L Choppers makes the frames as desired by the customer, provided it is technically justified, of course. The sky’s the limit when it’s up to the L & L team and we don’t make a fuss about a bit more or less Rake or Stretch. A single downtube, dropped-seat or swing-arm frame?
Ask L & L Choppers for the possibilities.
This is a frame for the BUELL to put it from mild to wild!
Onno is the owner of an optically modified Harley-Davidson Night Train that he really wasn’t using anymore. The standard Harley was simply not exciting enough and did not stand out in Onno’s garage. For years, he has been dreaming of owning a custom made chopper.
During a visit to the Bigtwin Bikeshow 2013, Onno met with L&L Choppers and explained what he wanted. Of course, L&L had no problem sharing his vision.
It was decided to keep the Twin Cam 88B engine, the gearbox and several other parts from the donor bike. The frame had to be a slim dual downtube hardtail with a straight line between the headstock and the rear axle.
Based on these wishes, L&L cleverly designed a frame along the lines of their Sportster Attackit. The frame is usable for several types of chopper and bobber bikes and can accommodate virtually all big twin engines. Which means that engines and gearboxes from Softails, Dynas, FXR and Touring models will fit.
The rest of Onno’s chopper will be built in Frisco Style. It will be a slim bike, with a small tank mounted on the backbone and practical details. Although this style sometimes included mid controls, we will be using forward mounted controls in view of the customer’s size.
Owner Jeroen says:
A Biker for 24 years…….I have always been riding a custom style motorcycle.
Not a Harley but certainly the type. Now the circumstances appeared to make the dream reality. I am a long time fan of the bobberstyle. Finally I decided to make the dream come true with cooperation of L&L.
Due to the fact that I like to ride a lot of miles, the choice came down to a softail instead of a hard tail, what, in fact for me, is the essence of a bobber . But sometimes you have to make concessions for riding comfort. That is also the reason for the 200 rear tire to ride corners more easily. A slightly wider angle on the front springer, with the biggest possible wheel to match the back, creates a better esthetic line. The short fender is chosen to show the 200 rear wheel. Definitely my vision. From the start it was clear to me that chrome is not an option. I’d rather drive, than wash my bike. The engine is from the donorbike and is a standard 1200 sportster with 5 gears. The exhausts are deliberately kept long to give it that long look and because I am not a small man.
Because I like smooth round lines, the fender struts are curved . The rest of the bike is kept minimalistic. The handlebars give a more upright seating position wich gives it a more comfortable riding position. The colors will be chosen in a later stage but will be in accordance with the base color of the rear wheel.
All together the bike I imagined is being realized.
In loving memory to those who are no longer here to see the dream come true.
This is the story of Jeroen.
