The test rounds have been driven again, so the chopper can go to the customer. 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 Swedish chopper feeling.
The large capacity tank and the softail frame do not belong to this style, but make the chopper unique and completely according to the customer’s wishes. Many kilometers will be driven with it, so the comfortable sitting position is a bonus!
For customer Frank, for the bicycle part, the design, is ready. Frank likes to drive a lot of kilometers and that includes a comfortable chopper. With the 200 tire at the rear and a 12 inch fork, that will be all right.
The chopper painted in British Racing Green for Pieter is ‘ready-to-go’!
The extended frame is adapted to the posture for a perfect sitting position. Because of the long tank and the oval oil tank, everything is nicely proportioned. For the exhaust system we opted for a two-in-one with a muffler. The stabilizer on the front fork is equipped with a removable mudguard. The 200 mm rear tire gives a nice look and is not too wide.
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!
With this frame (10116NG) the lowered seat catches your eyes and is formed with a curved swingarm and a matching Drag Tank (50530). The frame is custom made for each desired engine, fork and band width.
This time the basis is a softail with an Evo engine, of course that includes a Gooseneck and we mounted the springer so that the springers are lower. The bottom of the tank is made to flow with the curves of the cylinderheads.
