The bike was originally bought by a shop owner as a basketcase 10 ago. He rebuilt it completely and sold it to a girl that only rode it around the church and took actually good care of it. I bought this bike 4 years ago from her because she needed the money, stripped and changed it a bit and rode it like that for 2 summers. In the mean time gathering ideas & stuff for the big change.Had a tight plan which changed a lot throughout the build : different front end (the 33mm 4” over being a little bit fucked), tank, handlebars, oiltank, etc.







I ran in some trouble with the frame but that worked out pretty fine thanks to the guys from Iron Pit. Got the frame back, put the engine in (which didn’t need any work and hasn’t since), rewired it, mounted everything else, started it and rode it as much as I could. This summer I rode it to Germany, Denmark, Sweden (Jokers show), France and the UK (The Trip Out) without any problems!


Thanks to everybody that helped me out: Iron Pit, Sam (STC), Jelle

This bike makes me want an "Ironhaid sportstah."
Although the last time I rode one I was not impressed with that drum up front.
Not even in the early 70's...
