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!
The frame is back from the painter and the engine has been thoroughly overhauled, which is necessary when the engines are a bit older. For the technical part, the engine has been completely disassembled and all irregularities have been repaired. For the look we polished a large part of the engine, sprayed the cylinders and finished with chrome accents and we used a home made ribbed primary case. Now the assembly can begin!
We were able to free up some time for Yuri his chopper. The idea for the exhaust set comes from our chopper Aruba. With its V-shape and upswept design, it gives the chopper a rugged appearance. The Flow Glide fork is made to length and will be polished after painting. We have brought the headlight support as close as possible to the triple trees so that the headlight falls into the front fork.
Due to the length of the customer, we have opted for an extended frame. Due to the long tank and an oval oil tank, everything is nicely in proportion. We opted for a two-in-one with an end silencer for the exhaust system.
The stabilizer on the front fork is equipped with a removable mudguard, we have refitted the original front brake disc and finished it with a nice, well-functioning brake caliper. Now on to the inspection!
You have wide glide springers and narrow springers. With the narrow springers, a narrow wheel hardly fits between them and certainly no brake caliper. The solution is the in-between glide springer, despite its narrow appearance, a narrow wheel with a reduction set can be mounted.
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.
