The photo shows a springer with a short length, the difference is that the eye of the brake rod higher is attached on the right side, which is favorable for the braking action. With a L&L brake plate you can attach the original caliper again.
Yuri helps us out most of the times with some odd jobs during the fair and open days. With some guidance from Paul he is finishing his Old Skool Chopper.
At present he is working on the brakeline. A flexible one is most commonly used, but this time we didn’t want that! Therefore, this time we’ve opted for a fixed brakeline. This is being put in place with chrome brackets.
With this frame (10116NG) the lowered seat catches your eyes and is formed with a curved swingarm and a matching Drag Tank (50530). The frame is custom made for each desired engine, fork and band width.
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.
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.
