In France, the 1970s are coming back a bit. Here’s a custom frame for the shovel block and to give you an impression and to measure the whole thing, a ‘pass’ springer. At a later stage we put together a springer according to the wishes of the customer.
Attackkit with RDW approved self-build license plate
We have been making frames according to customer wishes for 35 years, but we have also been working with the Attackkit for a long time. This is a frame where everything from a donor engine can be built to the shape and taste of the customer. The customer can do this all by himself, but we can also help with this. In this case we have provided the rough build with license plate.
Dyna in Mexican Style
Almost no after-market parts are available for the Dyna Glide models. Luckily we already make frames for these models and in this case we have produced an extra short front fork and exhaust kit.
WL drum set
For builders looking for the WL brake drums, we can offer the last set in stock.
Bit of a Swedish Chopper
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 bit of a Swedish chopper feeling.
The tank with content and the softail frame do not belong to this style, but make the chopper unique and completely according to the customer’s wishes.
Sportster Chopper Softail frame
Customer Frank has always driven standard motorcycles, but the chopper feeling was always there. There is of course always a reason to postpone this wish, but he has now decided to go all the way. Frank chooses this style but on a Softail base.
Jim’s 5 speed gearbox
In the past we have sometimes been tempted to deliver an Ultima gearbox to the customer. But cheap is expensive because the quality from Farawayistan comes back like a boomerang.
Original HD containers are proven quality but unfortunately not available at the moment. And see here a Jim’s container with proven quality!
The Bobber with wide rear tire also comes with a couple of thick exhausts with modified mufflers. For the old-vintage look, the cat-eye dash has been applied with the modern technology of an electronic counter.
Hardtail frame for the Flathead
The wishes of the customer are very important to us. The frame is therefore carefully composed in consultation with the customer. In this case, for a Harley-Davidson WLA – The Liberator, it has become a tubular frame with a casting for the engine block and gearbox.
Engine block upgrade
If the paint job is successful and we start rebuilding a project, we will look at what appearance the bike needs.
For an old look, keep the donor block in its current state. We upgrade the block for a chic look. In this case we did this with vintage valve covers and gray with black cylinders and a ribbed primary cover.
Frame for an electric motor
At L&L, a motor with electrical assistance is not on our wish list.
But when customer Alex came by with 200 mm rear tire, 50 amp battery, 3000w Electra motor, a Chopper front fork, an example of a frame assembled with a glue gun and the question whether we could make a nice frame, we thought this was a nice challenge.
A nice job for the autumn, where we will see with which material we can build a nice frame for this with of course …. a specific L&L design!
Vintage Bobber handlebar
Only handlebars with risers are available for the modern Harley springer front forks.
In this case, the desire was to create a vintage bobber handlebar (without risers). We solved this by means of a mounting plate, as was used in the past.
The Good Old Flatfender
In the days when there were no round fenders on the market, we used a flatfender for narrow tires. For the wide tires we used a trailer mudguard, they are wafer thin but you had to do something.
Today we work on projects with car tires, with the 2mm thick and 200mm wide flatfender.
We’re putting the finishing touches on the structural work. For example, we have put together a sporty steering wheel with matching handles and a cover plate with hole pattern for the retro jumper. The battery box, petrol and oil cap in the same style, license plate with a Hotrod taillight.
At the request of the customer, the air filter and the ignition coil are fitted with covers. To place the start button and ignition lock, the electrical box is located under the oval oil tank.
Chamber bushes have been used for the headlight support, with the heads of the Allen screws nicely recessed.
Long Front Fork
We mounted the front fork for customer Henri.
