Customer Henri has been driving this fork for about 25 years and thinks it is time to make a change. The question was asked whether it was possible to fit a longer fork, and as you know… we don’t like to say no. After building a new frame for a fork that’s 10 inch longer than the old one, we roughly build up some part.
We have again offered a few frames to the RDW for the engraving of a frame number. The registration of the frame and associated gearbox and block is the way to obtain an official registration certificate and only applies for the Dutch market.
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!
Out of curiosity Rik visited the open days in the shop in Rijen. Once inside, while enjoying a cup of coffee, he saw the Boardtrackers.
The thing is Rik had still a little project laying around, a Triumph and after weeks of bad sleep he wanted to do something with it. He decided that he wanted to build a Boardtracker with his Triumph.
When delivering the engine, Rik indicated that he would like to be surprised, this is obviously very risky, because then the bucket of inspiration and creativity at L&L flows over! A must is the 23 inch narrow rims and tires with line profile, the 30’s tank and a special springer.
