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.

Still Starter/Selenoid problems





Again I had problems with to electric start the Ironhead, Kicking was no problem at all this time and on the way to KKF and Chopper Bash I had no problems at all. I guess it has to do either with the rain or with the heat so I'm going to rebuilt the starter with new bushings (of course I broke the thin ground plate ) and check if that helps, if not I'm going to take the selenoid out and repair that. Also checking the starter cables and all connectors cause the rain could corrode them and give troubles.
Kickstart an Ironhead was never an option I thought but now after over 50 times its not a big of a deal.

KKF Frau Fragen was a blast!





KKF was : cool, hot, nice, drunk, friends, barbeque, busy, so next time again: FRAU FRAGEN?!

1972 Ironhead dashboard and electric update





The ride to the Flanders Chopper Bash was flawless, the ride back was worser. I made it home but with pushing the bike twice and kickstarting the bike a million times. For some reason the battery was out of juice or the sellenoid was unhappy but I had to rebuild the starter button and kill switch anyway so I updated the whole side mount dash to the new dash. I can even see if the running light or high beam is on! Never had that before haha, I can also push the right button for the horn cause most of the time I was hitting the starter button instead....

Flanders Chopper Bash 2015




Bike is prepared for the 2015 Flanders Chopper Bash, first timer for me.

WEEK # 22: REBUILD OF THE 1967 IRONHEAD






These EMD wheelcovers are bitching! My Ironhead '67 wheel looked like shit and didn't match the frontwheel at all so after repairing some spokes and straighten the rim it was time to put these discs on. No mounts included so I made some by myself, hopefully they hold up... New Sprocket/Drumbrake setup and polished the Drumbrake cover to make it extra shiny. Really love the looks right now.

WEEK #21: REBUILD OF THE 1967 IRONHEAD





I spoked more than 1000 BMX Wheels so far and didn't even try to make a Motorcycle wheel yet. Had one broken spoke so I replaced that with an old one out of another old wheel. Didn't take the tire off so after lots of hassle I got the nipple and spoke in and of course: # 2 broke, then #3, #4 and you guessed it right: # 5 also broke at the rusty nipple. So tire off and start all over again. Its easier than a BMX Wheel cause you don't have to cross spokes and you have two rows in the hub flange. Rim is out of shape so have to straight that up first. Easy fix is costing me a whole morning.


WEEK #20: REBUILD OF THE 1967 IRONHEAD



Lots of stuff happened since last update but no time for updates. Here update Week #20. I will replace the rear drumbrake, sprocket and brakepads. It was about time....

Twin Air Dual stage Air Filters for the 1967 Ironhead





Again Twin Air did a great job making some custom Dual Stage Air Filters for my '67 Ironhead. Just a simple drawing and the guys in Veghel Netherlands know what to do. Thanks Pieter and Jos for the nicest Harley-Davidson filters ever made.

Liberator show Aarle-Rixtel 28 March 2015.



As you can see this is my favourite "Car & Motorcycle Photo spot". Cleaned the bike, some touch ups, so its ready for the "Liberator Show" next weekend in Aarle-Rixtel.
Saturday we also have our BMX Event called: MINI FATJAM (#25 this year!) and in the evening we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of PAUL'S BOUTIQUE BMX HARDWARE STORE with Mooon playing at OJA Aarle-Rixtel, you are all invited. Sunday we will have 2 bikes at the Liberator show, well maybe 3 if I can find someone to take the Buell for a 800 meters ride.....

Chrome won't get you Home....



Chrome won't get you Home, but at least I'm gonna try. New chrome exhaust clamps for the 1972 Ironhead installed this morning. Also new bracket for the ignition switch, painted the battery cover so the bike is ready for some more testrides this week, the sun is out again!
