Nice and crazy! There was no style police to say what could and what not, just go wild. Paint, chrome and upholstery excellence!

Dynamite by Frans de Weerdt

Many Dutch chopper enthusiasts will recognize this beauty from the posters hanging over their beds!
This bike was one of the best customized motorcycles in Holland, (that says a lot doens't it!!!) and even won 1st prize at the 1982 choppershow "King Blits" held at the RAI in Amsterdam. I don't know the whole history of the bike, but the builder Frans de Weerdt is still working and painting cars and motorcycles to this day.

1st prize winner! And other old school Dutch bike builders Jan de Wit shovel chopper on the left

And some of you might recognize my little project XS400 from a couple of years back, sporting an exact same gas tank paint! (minus the name "Dynamite " on the sides) which I found at a motorcycle wrecking yard

Mutant machine

Always wonder how these things brake with only stopping power on the rear 2 wheels!? I'm guessing they would have to be perfectly adjusted as to not end up in a ditch

So cool! Love those Cragars on the rear and a lot of canvas for some rad paint

Just a little upgrade in the form of double carbs

Comfortably seats 3.
Trapped air gets out via the original airvent below the window
