- Motorcycle seat
When I was about 17 years old I became infected with the Harley virus. A group of Harley Davidson motorcycles came thundering through my village. I thought this was mighty. A few years later from the time I thought I could afford it I bought a 1977 Harley Davidson FLH Electra-Glide 1200. At the time I picked up the Shovelhead the engine had to be started by spraying a highly flammable spray into the carburetor. I didn't care about this but those around me thought I was crazy to buy an old bike for so much money when it couldn't even start properly.
After about 3 months of riding around on the standard Shovelhead I ended up at Manitoe in Rijen. Here I was infected with rebuilding my bobber engine and making engine parts. I rode my bike in there and was allowed to rebuild it myself in the rebuilding corner. New fenders mounted, a set of forward controls made myself, an idiotically wide handlebar (120cm) mounted and the engine given the necessary powder coating and new paint job (Grolsch green in matte).
This was back in 1997 and quite a while ago. Since then I have been trained as a CNC turner/miller, 3D Cad draftsman and Cam programmer. I have worked for very reputable companies but my passion really lies with motorcycles, riding, tinkering, making chopper motorcycle parts and bobber motorcycle parts and the contact with people to work with them to turn an idea into a product they are more than satisfied with. That's why I started this business for motorcycle parts.
Feel free to look around and see if there is something for you, and feel free to contact me to see if I can be of service.
