get the lowdown: Hans from Holland


Hey gearheads, I know it’s been awhile but here’s a new column right out of Holland.

Reasons for that is I’ve got another job, and spending more time to ride than to write…

Last months been to several bikeshows, meetings and so on.

Also spend a lot of time on our dutch XS 650 magazine, the 653. Our last issue includes a nice article about Bratstyle.

Thought it was posted here in March, the nice dutch bobber of Marco. Well, Marco gave it a makeover and it looks even better now. The XS got a new paint job which is outstanding . He also changed the 19” front wheels with a 21” with a clean brake hub. These pics were taken at the RMC chopper show.



In another column i’ve showed the nice green XS from Limpe. What a superbike it is. Next week there’s a photo shoot planned with Limpe’s XS for the UK magazine Back Street Heroes. This month in the BSH, and in the dutch custom mag Bigtwin, is the ‘Boneless XS’ of Jeroen featured which also been seen here.




Remember the post Oldstyle Mixed-up (march 21) posted by Guzzmen?

In this post you see the mock-up of a great Belgium bobber. This head turner is

already on the road and turned out great. Check the pics below, especially the double

Weber carb is awsome! Nice job.

    Trying to find the posting of the bobber with the #72 on the tank. its a black and orange peanut tank with a rear white wall tire. The background of the photo has a stack of cut-up wood logs. I believe it from the Holland.
