The Orange Dirt Tracker
We had an idea to build a very narrow and slim hardtail bike based on the old dirt trackers.
Starting point was actually two 23 inch wheels from a Honda XL 500 from 1982.
Then we build on a sportser 1200 base a complete custom bike with lots of special produced parts. The gas tank was build from scratch a split up in oil and gas tank. The oil line run to the frame tubes for a super clean look. With drum brakes and classic springer fork it matches the old style that has been in those days.
This dirt tracker runs and drives great. And find a new owner a couple of years ago.
The Green Bobber
This bike I build for myself.
I’ll wanted to build a bobber hardtail like an old “Knucklehead” but then with a better a more durable engine.
So to create that look I made the first “ Wingheads” to give that Knucklehead look. Then the engine have the look of an original Knucklehead but then with the engine of a newer Shovelhead. It turned out to be a good concept.
So we build several bikes with this unique modification. Also, the green collar and red hand painted stripes seen often on a 1930’s VL.
Interested in such a modification or complete build?
Narrow Glide Special
We started to build this bike to make a good driver for long distance and lots of performance. But we wanted to give the bike a slim and “ instant speed look” like the early drag race bikes.
To create that look , we narrowed the rear section of the frame 2 inches ( 5 cm) and made a new swing arm for it , to fit the narrow rear frame. To give the bike a racey look, we made al lot of the parts from aluminum (oil tank, gas tank , rear tail section , wheels and many more) and put no chrome on it.
A very good front fork with big dual brake calibers. And for a clean and open look a sprocket brake in the rear.
At this time the bike is still under construction ….. So more pictures coming up …
