Youngster Rino ‘Goes Wild’

Youngster Rino Goes Wild

Rino wanted something different, something wild.  In the barn he still had a Sportster Evo 4.

He was drawn to 240mm rear tire and a long springer fork which stood low. A rib Sportster tank, oil tank with holes, and this extends to the forward controls, battery box, handlebar and rear fender.

When he first viewed the structural work Rino had a ‘smile’ from ear to ear!

 

1600CC Lowrider for Johan

Johan a customer wanted to build a bike and had some specific needs. First, he wanted a nice engine. He also wanted to have airsuspension so that the bike can be lowered on its frame when parking. The front and rear wheels needed to have wide rims, fat tires and special drum brakes. Last but not least he wanted a specially made extra solid Springer fork.

And if we also wanted to make sure that the bike as a whole would have a real Bobber look. This is what we have made so far.

Structural work for client Frank is almost finished

There is a rear fender with a broad rib, the exhausts are equipped with thick curved end nozzles and there has been chosen for a Sportster tank with a deep tunnel and a rib (50538).

The stainless steel forward controls are from the new series, running tapes with holes (40611FR).

For this project we used a Hardcore headlight (1302645) and the flow-glide fork in black (3030FR). The black wheels with thick spokes (20406FR) are a perfect fit with it.

Onno’s Frisco Style Chopper – Photoshoot

Onno was the owner of a slightly modified Harley-Davidson Night Train that he didn’t really ride much anymore. The standard Harley was not exciting enough, in part because Onno owns several motorcycles. At the same time, it has always been his dream to own a real chopper. But such a bike had to be precisely what he had in mind. The chopper had to be built from scratch and have a slim hardtail frame forming a straight line between the steering head and the rear axle.

Lourens New Seventies

Lourens came with a request to build a highneck chopper. It had to be a big bike with a genuine seventies styling. The base is a L&L hardtail frame with a solid single backbone. In the extremely high triple trees there is a long L&L springer mounted, that will take you back to the times of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll.

Because of reliability many customers want modern Harley-blocks such as the Sportsters, Evo and Twin Cams. However Lourens went completely for the old skool look and the choice was for a characteristic Shovelhead with a kickstart transmission. At L&L we find that really cool to build!

It’s all in the details: the sissy bar has the same angle as the fork. For the tank is elected a Jesse James copy that makes the machine look even higher. The oval tank is chosen from our catalog. A low steering wheel and a set of beautiful spoked wheels makes the look complete. In the rough build Lourens’ highneck looks already great. And after completion?

Please come by to have a look!

Frisco style chopper for Onno

onno-14_
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.

Trike for Jan

Jan recently passed the age of fifty years. To celebrate this special occasion, he decided that he would like to have something special: a trike!
Though, not another corny trike with a VolksWagen beetle engine on it’s tail. Jan wanted a Harley-based trike with and therefore he bought a complete second-hand Dyna motorcycle at L&L Choppers.
Meanwhile, the L&L team designed a one-off rigid frame for the donor engine. The frame was designed in good consultation with Jan and within only one month the frame was finished. The Dyna engine, gear-box, primary, forks and brakes were taken from the donor bike.

Thanks to the well designed frame, the trike will look pretty much streamlined. The racey dragstyle fuel tank that Jan chose, matches to this styling. A ridge with speedholes was welded on te top of the fuel tank.
This is a theme that is recurring everywhere on the trike. The front wheel on the photo is the original, but in the near future a 23 incher will be mounted. The mudguards, that cover the 14 inch wide rear-tyres, are TIG-welded and they’ll have a chrome finish soon. The seat is equipped with air suspension shocks, so riding this trike will feel pretty comfortable. After all it will become a very clean and tough looking trike!
