New here.

Hello, my name is Leon, aka Knutselsmurf here in the Netherlands.
I ride a XV1600 Roadstar Silverado. Together with my wife we make a lot of kilometers on the bike, often in combination with a trailer.
This year I finished my Home Build motorbike and she,s beautiful. Like to share my passion for this kind of bike with you.

Very nice combination.

And this is my home made bike, on witch I,m very proud. I designed the bike myself, made the drawings and calculations myself and build it myself. All, except the paint job.


The left side.

The right side.

Together with the proud owner.
She ride,s fantastic, straight line when I let go the handlebar at 80 kilometers/hour and the turning is smooth and very predictable.
Riding this bike is addictive.
KenGard and KenGard like this.
