Workshop Wednesday #17: Tank problems and Peg solutions

 Tank problems: Which tank do you prefer? The Schapekoppen Coffin tank with Royal Jack paintjob or a sportster tank with new paint? Please let me know.
Pegs are installed, I like em very much. The brakepedal was slipping so I don't know if Nito had Suicidal Tendencies but with no front brake and no rear brake it is pretty dangerous on Dutch roads..... Fixed the problem so far, no test rides yet but it seems that the weather is going to be better soon.

I booked my flight to the best Motorcycle Run of all time: EL DIABLO RUN 2011! My friends at Biltwell are hooking me up with a nice Pink Sportster or whatever color it is, Cinqo de Mayo will never be the same!

Secret project..... Hoodlum Society I have to kill you.......

Pegs for the '67 Ironhead

Pegs for the XLH900: KHE Mid School Pegs with brass inserts, heavy as fuck but who cares on an 43 years old Ironhead. Removable and foldable, these Pegs will last forever!

Workshop Wednesday #16: XLH1100 Flattracker is rolling again.

If you can't take the chain to the cleaning machine, bring the cleaning machine to the chain! After 15 years its the first time I cleaned that chain, yes it was necessary...Same for the Brakedisc, it looks like new with some 3M scotchbrite.
Fast mock up how the bike will look, lots of things to do but I like it so far, next up is Electrics, rear AMA #plates, Grips and sorting out what shocks I'm gonna use on this bike.

Workshop Wednesday #15: XLH1100 Front End is ready!

 Here the frontbrake set up: Moto-Master Supermotard Flaming Racing disc with adaptor and Brembo brake with Moto-Master brakepads.
 This is the total ready front end: KTM03 SX125 forks, Universal Triple Clamps, K180 Dunlop Tire, Moto-Master disc/adapter/pads, Ufo fork protection, Universal Bars and Clutch levers, Brembo brakelever and brake pump and soon to be mounted Aluminium AMA size #plates in official size. Headlights???

Clutchcable on the XLH900 was too short for the Biltwell Frisco bars so I have a new setup for the Universal Clutch lever, don't know if it works but if you see a Japanese dude riding with this setup you know he stole it from the Hoodlum Society blog hahaha.

Workshop Wednesday #14: GIMMY A BRAKE!

 Moto-Master SuperRETARD Racing Flame Disc two tone, floating and BIG! The XLH1100 is going to make some stoppies!
 Moto-Master Adapter for Brembo KTM SX125 Frontbrake, it took a while to figure out which one I needed but the guys at TMV helped me out and it was an easy job.
UNIVERSAL MX Clutch lever made suitable for the 1986 HD Clutchcable, I was thinking for months how to do it and today I made it with only a drillmachine and sandpaper. Will be polished so it will look like the other clutch lever. Original HD Clutchcable and HD nylon pivot will be used so it will work just fine.....
