The Brothers Bjorklund Create Amazing Hot Bike Made from Junk, 1966 Harley Davidson
The two brothers Bjorklund from from Super Rat Customs in Bellingham, Washington, US- Carl and Mark- have built amazingly detailed hot bike, made by putting together salvaged material. They bought a junked Harley (1966 Harley Davidson XLCH) for $900 and turning it into beautiful art.
The gas tank was made on the lines of a fiberglass Manx-style tank and made out of scrap metal. While the entire bike has been created from bits and pieces reused from a scrap yard.
“The Low Brow Customs” was installed by Mark from, “Superrat.” This amazing work of art is called the War Crimes, and features bold paint design which was completed by Mark from, “Superrat”, inspired by a Russian Military Theme.
The carburetors are rebuilt Amal Carbs. Carl modified a stainless 2-into-1 intake to accept the carburetors to the engine. The fairing is made from 22-gauge sheet metal and has vertical slots cut in the front of it for the light to illuminate out of.
I spent about 45 hours making the stainless steel motor mounts on the front and top of the engine, and I hollowed out the left side of the tank so people could peek in there and see them
Besides affordable, reusing old parts to create an amazing Harley Bikes can reduce our carbon footprint and save our landfills to get overloaded. This Amazing bike by two brothers Bjorklund was featured on the front cover of the July, 2011 issue of “Hot Bike Magazine“.
