Self-build Kees, the Bad Wolf
For Kees (from 1958) I built a Panhead in the old style, but with the handling characteristics of a new motorcycle. The frame is a Mid-USA hardtail and I have had it powdered matte black. Also the springer fork from Mid-USA and the oil tank. The gearbox is a Zodiac 5-speed with all chrome covers blasted matt. The secondary drive is a belt drive original Harley-Davidson. The wheels are also original Harley-Davidson, and powdered black. Behind a 16 "wheel and in front of a 19". The spokes are extra thick and are made of stainless steel. The rubber is from Avon.
The engine block is an S&S Panhead and measures 93 ci or 1524 cc. The engine block is like an Evolution on the inside and is really not just a piece anymore. The block delivers an average of more than 80 hp to the rear wheel and is not inferior to the most modern Harley in terms of torque and power. Of course, the weight of this bike is low and speeding is a breeze. The S&S block breathes through a Super E and the sparks come from a computer-controlled ignition with a break-in procedure.
The brakes are from GMA, front a 4 piston brake and a 2 piston rear brake. The brake lines are from Goodrigde and have a carbon cover. The mufflers are from Zodiac and we made the curves ourselves. The forward controls are made of a Softail and powdered black. The tnaks are 3.5 gakkon and are original HD. The rear mudguard is a flat fender from Zodiac and the front mudguard is an old superglide, replaced by us.
The primary is a 2 "open belt drive from Ultima and I blasted. The hood I milled myself. The tanks are also original HD and are 3.5 gallons. The cat eye dash has a new type of electronic counter.
The paintwork was done by MW-Designs. Very well done I may say. Cartoon style drawing with a nice Metall Flake paintjob. The dashboard panel is cut from 1.5 mm aluminum and later covered by Karen with processed leather. The Roland Sands saddle has also become very beautiful. This bad wolf will catch its prey !!!!! Also compliments to Karen.
