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.
We were able to free up some time for Yuri his chopper. The idea for the exhaust set comes from our chopper Aruba. With its V-shape and upswept design, it gives the chopper a rugged appearance. The Flow Glide fork is made to length and will be polished after painting. We have brought the headlight support as close as possible to the triple trees so that the headlight falls into the front fork.
Time for an update on Yuri’s Swedish Chopper. The pulley and brake disc have been measured and just made. The wheel is aligned and the length of the belt is determined so that we know the position of the wheel.
The disc is behind the pullover to keep the view side of the Chopper as bare as possible, less is more! The next step is to determine the position of the caliper and shape the fender.
Customer Joost has purchased a donor Sportster with a Bobber Attackkit, but was too busy and had not yet started the project seriously.
With the help of L&L most of the donor parts have been processed in the Bobber, but a few new parts have also been used. L&L did the construction work, had the Bobber inspected and arranged the registration number. The frame is powder coated, but otherwise remained rough because Joost has not decided on the further finish.
The Bobber is delivered roadworthy, so who knows, the inspiration might come during a ride!
Yuri is a boy who helps us when we need a hand during open days and shows.
Meanwhile, his own chopper has been finished for a while so it started to itch again. Looking around in our second hand treasure room, Yuri came across all kinds of 70s parts and made a small sample with it.
Last weekend we had our annual open day in Rijen. We showed off all our finished and rough finished choppers.
From early in the morning on Saturday the visitors were already there and the visitors continued coming until closing time. Of course, there were many existing customers, but we could also welcome many new faces.
The enthusiasm for our build projects and our custom parts was enormous. We have experienced this as very pleasant and therefore thanks!
