Frank’s Buell has had a complete metamorphosis. From one extreme, a naked racer, went this American to the other extreme, a chopper! However it hasn’t lost any of its aggressiveness. The hardtail racer with streetfighter look is finished and for this we are in the Brabantse Rijen for Frank’s first ride and photos.
The cheapest way to provide your original Harley with a thick fork is by using the Cheap Fatso from L&L. This set, which consists of extra-thick triple trees and bold upper and lower covers, is in fact easy to combine with the standard Harley inner and lower forks. So you retain your original front fork but replaces your original triple trees by ours, including covers.
30820a – Triple trees with covers, sanded 30820b – The set mounted with a 39 mm fork (sportster, dyna, ed ed) 30820c – The fork mounted with a 21“ wheel
Jeroen has been nearly a quarter century devoted to custom bikes. A Harley has always been his dream and finally the circumstances allowed this to happen. A bobber speaks to him the most and at L & L Choppers his dreams became true!
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?
Jacques lives, already for a while now, in South Korea and wanted to build on his motorcycle when he would be on vacation in the Netherlands, but because of the hustle and bustle of the last five years that did not happen. Therefore, are we going to be building his motor.
It is a softail with a 240 mm rear tire and pullybrake, evo engine and a 5 speed gearbox. We have build a Full Flow-glide (frontfork), and a special tank for him.
Igor is a customer from Italy with a Dutch mother, that comes in handy to translate his wishes. After going through the parts we could use, this became another great hot rod for the traffic in Italy. And with the use of the minimal parts, it really became a crowd pleaser.
