I would be furious if that happened to me. Shops cannot do work that is not ordered specifically by the customer.

Re: VL Shovel

I have a VL frame that is modified for a shovelhead engine.

The modified areas were cleared from the old soldering, preventing the new welds from cracking.

Shown at a early mock-up stage.

Re: Bolt on hardtail for shovels..

I agree-doesn't look good. You need a straight line to make it look good, in my opinion.

I prefer struts if you have to go rigid, otherwise I think that short shocks look bitching!

Re: Pic thread...<<japan scene motor bikes>>>

I agree. Looked like old chrome to me first, but I also believe it's polished.


Great bike; it's good to see the thread active again!

Re: Bmw

I believe that BMW:s are cool, if handled the right way. Look at all the old racing cycles from the Twenties and Thirties. Lots of good stuff there to be influensed by.

Re: Any Yokohama pictures yet?!

Rikuo was built both with 1200 cc VL style and a 750 cc WL style.
That is a 750 cc built until 1960 i believe. The Rikuo frame is different from its US cousin. The upper frame is straight and not...

Re: pic thread <<EUROPEAN STYLE HD's>>

True-one issue only. Sad, as it was awesome. Some of the staff started producing MCM which still runs. We also had a magazine before that, Hojmagazinet.

You mean Tolle from Sweden? The man that was part of getting the Swedish authorities to recognise home built bikes? Look at www.tolle-engineering.se.

Re: Japan Scene bikes - the discussion thread

Japanse bikes are probably the most important influence right now, at least for me.

No new-dipped chrome, no fancy shiny paint, no bolt-ons. Just flowing simple lines and understated good looks.
