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.

L & L Choppers built this modern version of a boardtracker for Rob, which is not exactly a rookie in the motor world. After a series of sports bikes Rob decided that is was enough with the fast bikes. Therefore, he decided to switch to a Yamaha Wild Star, which was rebuilt in the style of Big German Thunderbike. But Rob was not satisfied about the handling of such a thick rear wheel and also that much chrome really was not for him. “I wanted to go back to basics. Back to the leaking, crackling oldtimers! One particular type then moved his heart: the boardtracker!”
L&L Choppers builds all styles, from old skool to modern. Filip from Belgium at the right place by L & L Choppers to build a typical American chopper with a Jesse James look! A highneck frame with single downtube was tailored around a reliable TwinCam block.
Fun features include a oiltank with sight glass and a specially designed tank. Long, tall and skinny, and it had to be an ultra slim front fork because it fits beautifully in this picture! Real eye-catchers are the machined aluminum wheels with skulls. The highneck is not yet finished, but the looks are already good!
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?
