Most customers come to us for what we are known for, such as a custom frame and engine construction from budget to exclusive. But we also receive visitors with unusual questions. In this case, a customer was looking for a long front fork for an electric vehicle and we can of course also arrange that at L&L.
A while ago we manufactured a lowered frame for customer Silvio, suitable for a Ford eight-cylinder flathead block. After this, Silvio took over the further construction of the Ford, he will come back for the finishing touches.
There is currently a demand for the L&L Chopper frames from all over the world.
In France, customer Mathieu is going to make something special out of it. In Germany customer Mike creates a beautiful Chopper from his attack kit and for Dave from the Netherlands L&L can build an Old School version.
Asking is free… a French customer came to ask if we could make a springer, using a design he had picked out. We at L&L don’t say no so easily, so this is the result. With a hardtail frame included, it will be built into a nice 70s chopper in France.
The test rounds have been driven again, so the chopper can go to the customer. A model with a long fork, low and down, is described as a Swedish model. Jaap wanted such a long front fork that gives you a Swedish chopper feeling.
The large capacity tank and the softail frame do not belong to this style, but make the chopper unique and completely according to the customer’s wishes. Many kilometers will be driven with it, so the comfortable sitting position is a bonus!
Due to a lack of time, it has been a while since you’ve been able to read some new information from us, but that is going to change in the coming period. For the interested chopper builders, it’s probably known that we can supply front forks for Harley that are longer than 20 inches, as seen in the photos.
However, we’ve been receiving an increase in inquiries from the Japanese chopper community, asking if we could also supply, for example, Honda front forks from the 1980s. In the meantime, we’ve found a solution for this, so whether you’re looking for shorter or longer forks, let us know, and we will investigate their availability.
To get an idea of the design, the bicycle part is ready for the Bobber van Roeland. We opted for a traditional thick tank. The block is upgraded with Shovelhead covers. The rear wheel has a 200mm tire. The black powder-coated wheels give the Bobber a vintage look.
