Temporary Tank on the 1967 Ironhead

Well its time for the last project on this bike: Paint on the tank. Special secret project, this tank keeps me on the road for a while.

Yellow Yamaha time!

What do you do one day before you turn 50? Buy a new Motocross machine and start all over again.
Well that's what I did. Yamaha YZ250 2-stroke with Speedblocks of course. Nice set with the XT.

Yamaha XT Flattracker update

The XT is coming together very well, new rearwheel, one kicker, new Twin Air filters, new rear Dunlop 18" K180 etc etc. Just polished the original gold rear rim to silver to match the rearwheel and HAAN Wheels is going to do their magic. Also working on a Open Face Helmet with grafics of my hero Pierre Karsmakers.

'67 details details

I used UNIVERSAL Motocross (pre-Biltwell company) clutch levers for both the clutch and front drum brake. Of course you have to turn the lever on the brake side and makes it different from the clutch side with a hole at the end. Just drilled both sides so the ends look the same now. First 50 km are on the clock and guess what: OUT OF GAS again (#103) but only 100 meter from the gas station and with the last drop of gas I made it to the pump without walking...

Twin Air GP cover

Sometimes I have a little time to work on small details. This filter was Red and didn't fit the rest of the Orange/black colors so I made a little orange strap for it out of a Twin Air GP cover.

Modifications for the Dirt Tracker

Harley-Davidson Sportsters are not really made for Dirttracks/Hillclimbs/Speedway races but they have the name "Sport" in them so why not give it a try. My bike is far from an original XLH1100 1986 H-D Sportster with a KTMSX125 Motocross front end, Dunlop K180 Flattrack tires, XR Seat, Flattrack polyester tank etc etc but I didn't think of some problems: 1: The Biltwell Mushman pegs were going up and down so sometimes I missed a peg to stand on. Solution 1: Attached a spring to the peg so I have the same set up as on a MX bike. 2: The original key is sticking out on the side and I broke it in Italy (and my mate Elroy at the choppperspeedway) Solution 2: I made a key that is flat on the side and it is easier to carry in your pocket. The bike is clean again, made it road "legal" again.

Cleaning cleaning cleaning...

Riding in the dirt with a Harley-Davidson is not the best idea but it was a lot of fun. It takes a while to clean the whole bike but it was worth it. Thanks Twin Air for keeping the dirt out of the engine, BaMo Tech for the new clutch plates and tuning, Biltwell for all the parts and Merchandise and Vans for always backing me up with fresh shoes. Now its time for the Dunlop K180's again and take it to the road and now and then the bike will be ridden in the dirt again, too much fun!


The Chopperspeedway at the Liberator show was a big succes! 100% fun for both the riders and the audience. Got 2nd place in the end although it wasn't for the results, luckily I didn't win cause that would cost me a bet of Euro 100,00 and I had to take my selfmade ugly first price home hahaha.

"Paul Clutch" is my name...

BaMo Tech is working hard to get my bike ready for this weekend: ChopperSpeedway Aarle-Rixtel. Finally got rid of the ugly black paint on the primary cover so it looks even more like a racer now. Hope the new Kevlar plates hold better than the 30 year old standard H-D's....

Burn Baby Burn! Ridnaun Harley&Snow

The RENNSPORT TEAM had a good time in Ridnaun Italy. The only one that sucked was me, I burnt the clutch on the practice hill so it was game over in 50 meters. No spare clutch so it was time to drink some more beers....All the others rode to the top of the hill: Menneke 3 times and Job, Eloy and Kees all did it the first run. Kees even got a spectacular Third place in the Harley-Class in my name, so if you see Paul de Jong in the results, it wasn't me but my mechanic Kees van Bakel, all props to him!
