Flying Pan

customized Thunderbike Harley-Davidson Panhead

The all-round renewal

The Flying Pan is really the very last … at least the last bike in the series that we once sailed across the pond to use as a basis for our conversions. 

We did not miss a screw and the 51er Pan has a complete renewal that has it all. Exhaust, handlebar, grips, footrests, fuel tank, oil tank, rear fender and many other parts we have made completely and especially for the Pan in our workshop.

The Making Of

The chic 18 inch wheels, including matching brake discs, can be found in our catalog program under the name Vegas again. The same applies to the lamps, which you will find under the name Alcatraz in the new Thunderbike Custombook. For the right coat of paint, we were once again able to get master painter Ingo Kruse, who has done a brilliant job with matt paints.

Because a picture says more than a thousand words, we have put together a gallery with numerous snapshots.
