If you are building a chopper with ‘holes’ in various parts, this jiffy can’t be missed.
We’ve chosen for a very high quality jiffy that’s made in Holland, because a jiffy that breaks down is never good!
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!
For David we’ve built a Vintage Boardtracker with a ribbed theme. The single downtube frame with powder-coated 23-inch wheels and the retro jumper can not be ignored, of course.

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.
René, the client, wanted to use as many parts of its donor Buell to make it useful and fast.
The hardtail is suitable for the Buell tire width and fork.
Furthermore, we have implemented it with a short rear fender, round oil tank, rough exhaust kit, handcrafted seat and a small Sportster tank to give the bike a rough appearance.
For the switching gears and brake control we’ve used forward controls.
We are now moving ahead with the build of the Highneck for Michel.
The engine, transmission and rear wheel are aligned, and the hydraulic drum brake is mounted. A gold colored chain is used to transfer the power to the rear wheel.
To connected the frame we’ve used sleeves, so we can get the old frame look and feel. They are going to be chromed.
