The riding machine
If you call us at Thunderbike, it may well be that you have Carlos on the line. And if you contact us by email, he is one of the colleagues who will advise you, take your orders and bring your awaited parts on the road to you. And if something goes wrong, Carlos will take care of the return, i.e. the exchange or refund.
You can find the most changes at the front part of the bike. The Daymaker does what its name says and it’s still good to look at. With the Harley-Davidson dragbar and the satin grips from our own production, Carlos has his Sporty well under control. At the ends there is another special design for him: The drilled toppers have the letters “M” and “C” lasered in. The “C” stands for the name Carlos.
He strapped up the tank with the kit from Cult-Werk and also moved the ignition coil to free the frame triangle. And because the cables on the handlebars bothered him, he laid the cables inside with our mechanic Sven when changing the handlebars. At the same time the steel brake lines were installed.
Thunderbike’s turn signals disappear under the handcontrols and only come into view when they are switched on. The same applies to the small rear turn signals, which are discreetly mounted on the fender struts. The digital oil thermometer, which sits at the top of the oil tank, was given to him by a customer when he spoke to him in the yard. A “nice-to-have”, as Carlos says. The ignition cover and the perforated belt guard are also not essential, but they fit well into Carlos’ concept.
“Ready? No, no, my Sporty is far from being finished.” he lets us know. Well. He’s practically at the source and can take it easy. Although he thinks the rear fender should be even smaller and the tire wider, especially since he mounted the side license plate holder. “And maybe I’ll treat myself to a new paint, what Chiko does I find very cool, with metal flake.” But hey, it’s like this: The machine rolls, it looks good, it sounds good and the two of them just fit together really well!
The feature about this team member and his personal bike wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t mention the complete list of his names: Nico Carlos Harley Holzapfel. The parents who named their son that way are both heavily Harley-addicted themselves. Anyone with that name will probably end up with Harley-Davidson at some point.
