Being on bicycles for 40 years and motorcycles for 20 years I'm glad I can use that experience at Paul's Boutique BMX shop and as a Biltwell Dealer in the Netherlands, Europe. Loving almost everything on wheels and its hard to miss that at our shop: Classic cars, MX bikes, BMX Old School bikes, Harley-Davidson's, Skateboards are all over the place and the only thing that stops us is the lack of space. I started the Hoodlumsociety blog to show people what we are doing in our spare time, hope its interesting enough for you to visit us.

Keep it real: HARLEY-DAVIDSON


Restoring a bike can be done in different ways: a) Make it brand new with new parts (mostly made in China cause 47 year old NOS Harley-Davidson parts are hard to find and expensive. b) Use as many original parts you can restore and make them shiny or look like new again. Takes more time but I think it is way better and nicer than a "chinese new bike".

Rock the house!

Took the ROCKers out today, cleaned everything, polishing tomorrow. Hope we can use these for the rebuild, not sure yet.

WEEK #12: REBUILD OF THE 1967 IRONHEAD




Oilpump doesn't seem to have problems, it was welded in the pest but no leaks to be seen. Hope its fine cause it costs about 800 bucks to replace the whole pump. Cams seems fine too, but thats just my opinion, we will replace the bearings even if they are in good shape. Yes its really a '67 XLH #2135 engine that came with the frame, all stamped parts I found so far are all from the best year of alltime: 1967.

Oiltank Pressure test and repair


I know, its stupid not to pressure test a gas or oil tank but sometimes you take the chance. Because I didn't weld the tank myself I didn't check it but after mounting the tank on the Ironhead it was leaking in one tiny spot. While the bike is totally taken apart I found the leak by blowing air in the tank and holding it into water so easy job. Tig welded the small leak and tested again: no more leaks so far.


WEEK #11: REBUILD OF THE 1967 IRONHEAD







Working hard on the Ironhead last few days, Frame is ready for Powdercoat and so are some parts. Took the cams out, the clutch and polished the primary cover and cam cover. Cleaned everything and bagged everything so its easy to find all the parts for the build up. All parts are from 1967 so far so its not really a "frankenstein" as I thought before. Primary chain was WAY TOO LOSE, don't even think someone ever checked that, even one bolt was missing at the adjusting post haha. No I never checked it either....

WEEK #4/5/6/7/8 IRONHEAD




Lots of stuff happened last few weeks but no time to blog it. I welded the bottom of the "Bolt On" hardtail so it will be safer if I lose a bolt again... You can's see it from the top so it still looks like a bolt on. New Hoffman Bikes BMX Pegboss bolts with BMX nuts will be placed when it comes back from the powdercoater.

Licence plate holder, taillight, fender and sissybar are all ready for powdercoat, lots of filling holes and did some welds to make it a cleaner look. The last project before Powdercoat is the oiltank, it leaks on one spot so I will take care of that tomorrow, ran out of gas for the TIG welder this week...
Yes the first: OUT OF GAS is already a fact.

AVY's New school bike



Spending money on  "school bikes" is not my thing, I never had a new school bike in my life and I don't blame my parents at all. I see kids destroying hundreds of dollar bikes in a few weeks so my kids are going to school on "indestructable BMX Bikes"... I spend $ 2,00 on this total bike, all parts are refurbished/welded/polished/re-bend etc so the only thing I used was a inner brake cable. An old "KHE PARIS FLATLAND" frame was used, cut out the cracked top and downtube and made it 1 inch shorter, sleeved it and welded it together, strong enough for a 5 year old.....I hope.

Week #3 REBUILD OF THE 1967 IRONHEAD




Lower bracket of the rearfender was ugly so I made a new one from an old Universal Motocross barmount and a topclamp of an old Harley-Davidson riser. 43 Gold plated bolts will hold the fender nicely in place.

Subaru Forester, yes I know......

Yes I know: I don't like Japanese stuff.
Yes I know: I don't like colored cars
Yes I know: Its a piece of shit

But the good news is: It has black wheels!
