After five years of not having driven the jitters to build something arose again. This came to be because a friend of customer Frank had a engine and transmission that he could take over for a nice price. Frank wanted Highneck in Exile style, bare with not too much craziness.
On this project we’ve made everything thicker for the customer. A 200mm front tire with an extra thick and wide springer and a softail frame with extra thick tubes. Not to mention a 1600 cc Panhead block and a 240 mm rear tire.
From Old Skool to Modern, here at L&L Choppers we’re building all kinds of styles. Filip from Belgium came to the right place, L&L Choppers, to build a typical American chopper with a Jesse James look. A highneck with a single downtube frame that was custom-made around a reliable Twincam block.
Some time back the plan, to buy a beautiful Harley, occurred to me. First I wanted to pick something standard but after some orientating and looking around at other shops, L&L was still the place to be. When I entered the shop, I was immediately sold. I wanted a chopper that would be built by L&L. Since I myself am not technical this seemed like it was the best idea.
Tim was on holiday in Spain and to kill the time he was reading a biker magazine.Then his eye fell on a cool, old skool bike: a bike with a raw industrial look, when his eyes were drawn onto the pierced ape-hanger. Once in the Netherlands, he knocked on the door at L&L Choppers with the Spanish magazine under his arm.
Sunday the 1st of Easter L&L Choppers in Opmeer threw their doors wide open to welcome spring. Last winter, L&L Choppers has been busy and there were a number of finished an rough-finished bikes ready for them to show with pride.
