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!
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.
Denis has a chopper shop in France and was looking for a frame for a Panhead. This is wat we created, a Gooseneck Hardtail with a slightly thicker tube than what we usually use. Giving it a slightly different look.
For the enthusiastic customer Heiko we started with the structural work. His wish is to use hole patterns on the forward controls, battery box and mounts. Furthermore, an oval oil tank and a sporty tank with an extra deep tunnel which gives a fast look.
We have been able to make a few beautiful frames at the request of customers. This time a frame with ribs in the front tube, this design will be reflected in the design of the motorcycle. The Chopper frame is equipped with rear axle castings. The special thing about this is that it is suitable for the ¾ inch rear axle (19 mm), so you do not need adapter bushes. This is the case with all other castings.
The moment Miriam saw Sarah, she thought it was time to realize her dream of building an Old Skool Chopper. The wish was to work with a 200 mm rear tire and a matching high front wheel. Miriam also wanted a black springer front fork with a small brake disc and black brake caliper. The apehanger with an IL tank makes it complete.
Customer Jordi has ordered a bicycle parts from L&L, consisting of a custom Softail frame, wheels and various other parts. Jordi was already well on his way with the design because he already had, among other things, a special oil tank and rear mudguard. We helped with the last things and see here the result!
Good example is good to follow. By showing Yuri’s Swedish Chopper, the enthusiasm is back.
This is the bicycle part for customer Hans, consisting of a custom frame and a rear wheel. We will collect another Flow-Glide fork to length and a 23 inch front wheel and then Hans can go wild on the design!
