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.
There is currently a demand for the L&L Chopper frames from all over the world.
In France, customer Mathieu is going to make something special out of it. In Germany customer Mike creates a beautiful Chopper from his attack kit and for Dave from the Netherlands L&L can build an Old School version.
Here is a model that we have prepared for the open day. You can purchase the depicted model raw (without license plate, not finished), raw with license plate or completely finished (with license plate) according to your own wishes.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
