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.

WEEK #14 IRONHEAD: CASE CLOSED....OPEN!





Last step of the breakdown: CASE OPEN! What a mess, play on the crankshaft, heated sprockets, scraped case etc etc. Good luck BA MO Tech with the build. Everything is cleaned now and waiting for some new parts. BA MO Tech will be working on it after Carnaval.....

Gearbox is out.









I know its easy to get the gearbox out but I had some trouble to get the clutch basket out, turn left to untighten the bolt and of course I tried to the RIGHT....problem solved so the 5 bolts holding the gearbox are out and gearbox came out with ease. Only a hole closed by silicone and in the bottom the tread is broken but hope BA MO Tech can fix that. To take the Kickstarter shaft out is another stupid H-D design fault, you have to take the engine bracket off to get the shaft out...but in the end I finished the job. Next is splitting the engine, clearn everything, go to the glasspearlblaster and bring all parts to BA MO Tech to make it a new engine again.

Tank grafic mess arround.




Been checking what I should do with the tank grafics. Just did this one in Chrome. Don't know what to think about it yet.

WEEK #13: REBUILD OF THE 1967 IRONHEAD




Finally I got the Compensator sprocket and primary chain off. I have to be honest to watch Youtube first which side I have to swing my homemade tool hahaha. To the front it is, easy. No damage to be seen so far. Chain looks like new, cleaned everything, bagged it up and next is the Clutch basket but I need a socket 39mm for that and thats not in my toolbox yet....

Gas cap details



I know its a imitation "spike" gas cap and not from the 60's but I like it anyway. The long allen key bolts were bordering me for the last 4 years and now I found some time to make them shorter so it looks nicer. New Hoodlum Stickers next.

WEEK #13: REBUILD OF THE 1967 IRONHEAD




Been building a Engine Stand for the Ironhead. All from scratch so not really pretty, but pretty cheap.
Next step is to remove the compensation sprocket with the new made tool and the clutch. Last few things and than the engine can go to BAMO TECH for an overhaul.

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.
