Typically known for their more “custom chopper” oriented builds, the design team Thunderbike has certainly stepped outside of their box with the introduction of this custom 1951 Harley-Davidson Panhead.

The bike has been fully customized by the shop which includes many of their own fabricated parts like the bars, rear fender,  wheels, and the entire exhaust system. Other parts of the bike were outsourced. For instance the seat was done by artisan leatherworkers Maas Sitzleder, and the team at Kruse Design provided the black and orange paint job to finish off the look.

‘FlyingPan’ is a 1951 Harley-Davidson EL, which means it’s a Hydra-Glide with the high compression Panhead engine. Thunderbike started by rebuilding the motor and upgrading it with an S&S Super E carburetor kit, S&S manifold and Custom Cycle Engineering rocker covers.
