The customer wanted a Highneck Chopper for this project. The frame is equipped with a curved tank tube that will run over the tank. We also bent the front in the same radius.
Client Marc is hired by yacht owners as a captain to sail on the sunny Mediterranean Sea. Marc asked us to build a bike that looked rough and that he could use to show off at his employers.

We’re not really that excited of the oil filter covers from the catalog. So that’s why we designed a vintage oil filter for the TwinCam project that matches perfectly with the black and aluminum of the cylinders.

This is the result, a beautiful bike with many details.
The Twincams are coming more and more on the market and to build a chopper with it, we have Hardtail frames in all shapes and sizes.
This example is a bobber with a 200 mm band. We have switched to a chain for the drive, to create a real bobber look.
The TwinCam is a block that was born in the year 2000. We are now 18 years further so it is logical that this block is now also used for a different design and style.
We have a TwinCam Hardtail frame for a Bobberstyle, an Old Skool and everything in between.
Here you can see a hardtail frame with an I-Beam connection between the block and the triple tree. This frame is made for a Dyna TwinCam block and transmission. Further more we have a 18-inch rear wheel with brass spoke nipples and a 200 tire mounted on the chopper. The front wheel is 23-inch.
The rear fork of the springer is an I-beam design and the front of the springer is going to be something special. The tank, exhaust pipes and rear fender are also Homemade.
We continue to innovate at L&L!
See here a hardtail frame with an I-beam connection from the block to the steering head. This frame is made for a Dyna twincam block and gearbox.
We use a 200 rear tire and a 23-inch front wheel.
We’re also looking at whether we can make something special of the springer that we’re going to use. We’ll keep you updated!
L&L Choppers builds all styles, from old skool to modern. Filip from Belgium at the right place by L & L Choppers to build a typical American chopper with a Jesse James look! A highneck frame with single downtube was tailored around a reliable TwinCam block.
Fun features include a oiltank with sight glass and a specially designed tank. Long, tall and skinny, and it had to be an ultra slim front fork because it fits beautifully in this picture! Real eye-catchers are the machined aluminum wheels with skulls. The highneck is not yet finished, but the looks are already good!
Riding awesome, though budget-friendly choppers is put on the map by L&L Choppers with their succesfull AttacKit for Sportsters. Of course this Dutch chopper-company didn’t want to disadvantage the fans of bigtwin Evo & Twin Cam Harley-Davidsons!
Finally a ready-to-fit L&L hardtail frame is designed for the Twin Cam A and B, the Electra, FXR and Dyna.
Do you want to build a sleek lane-splitter? Or can’t you get your eyes off those wonderfull bobbers in the biker-mag? The possibilities of the new L&L frame are endless, as it’s available in both bobber (low) and chopper (high) look. Well, you’ve probably stopped reading at the word ‘budget-friendly?
The fun starts at a very affordable price and you’re ready to convert your stock softy into a tough hardtail choppa’.
Of course your Evo or Twin Cam drive-train can be spooned in the frame in an eye-blink. But also components such as forks, wheels and brakes will fit.
That the dedicated chopper freak will not use too many stock parts is needless to say.
L&L Choppers offers a wide selection of accessories such as mudguards, oil- and fuel tanks, handlebars, controls, seats and so on.
With a little effort, the backyard-builder will succeed in bringing the project to a good end.
