Andreas 30 Panhead

Gerry’s Personal 70’s Look

customized Personal Harley-Davidson Panhead

Hand Made Kustomized

The new (old) Gerry’s Panhead has been growing a little more over the last 5 years. With great attention to detail, Gerry, our Thunderbike Workshop Manager, always put his hand to it. Gerry’s Panhead is a classic old school vintage chopper. Many handcrafted parts and surfaces make this bike an absolute one of a kind. The finish is a tribute to the glittering choppers of the 70s. Matching pinstripe contrasts have now been added to the matte surfaces. Of course, no less than professional painter Ingo Kruse was commissioned for the 70’s Paint. Motorcycles with these engines are today among the most sought-after vintage cars from Harley-Davidson, for which prices over 30,000 euros can be achieved.

The Panhead engine was built from 1948 to 1965. This engine is already eye-catching enough due to its characteristic contours and the Diamond handset. On the cylinder heads are chrome-plated, smooth-surfaced lids, which this generation of motors the name Panhead (“pan head”) wrote in the story. From 1952, this drive was available with either a modern manual clutch and foot pedal.
