The KH 1952 Sportster falls in between the Liberator and the Ironhead Sportster. It is something that we have not used before.
For the design we opted for a Hardtail with a single downtube.
The front and rear wheel are both 21 inch. Both the rear and the front have the original drum brakes and are fitted with special tires.
The springer is in an I Beam version with lots of details such as a 20s tank with homemade cap, an oil tank with see through glasses and copper pipes, a boardtracker seat and the foot switch that has been brought from right to left!
During the build of this project we’ve bend the handlebar to fit the shape of the tank. The vintage look is achieved by working with a reversed brake and clutch handle. The handles are furthermore carried out in leather.
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!
