    Be Hard Pressed to get anybody to take ya up on that bet .... Pun intended ..



    Better than the original

    Four generations of blacksmiths. Carl Edlunds great-grandfather founded a forging shop in Älta, Sweden, back in 1935. Then his father took over and made the family name known all around the world. Now it’s up to Carl himself to bring on the legacy of the company known for making ”The Worlds Greatest Replica Frames”.

    Frames from Edlund, who haven’t heard about them. They are almost mythical to a lot of bikers, especially to the veterans. We at Big Twin have of course heard a lot about these frames but actually knew very little about them when it came down to it. So, it was not much to do but to grab the bull by it’s horn and go straight to the source. In this case it was straight to the suburbs of Stockholm to find out what makes them so special.

    ........................................... The Name Of The Game....................................

    Micke Edlund began to build frames in the early 1980s, back then the company was called “Mickes Ramar” and was located in Jönköping. The frames quickly got a good reputation for their excellent quality, especially their cast parts was considered to be top world-class according to many bikers.

    The frames where so good that demand came from all over the world and Micke decided to meet the market where it was. Sweden was too small, even though he sold 400 frames a year. So he moved to Los Angeles. At the company’s peak, he sold really well, but according to Micke himself he priced them way to low resulting in a lot of work but not that much of a payback. Even though bike frames was his main business he also built some Drag-Race frames.

    An Early Introduction:

    Carl Edlund, Micke's son, was introduced to the shop at an early age.
    – I used to run around dads workshop when I was a kid. I did my first welding joint when I was about four or five years old. It might not have been the best looking one.

    Everything With An Engine:

    The Biker-bug got Carl at an early age and has never let him go. Although he has developed other interest along the way Carl enjoys driving almost everything with an engine. At this moment he has two bike projects running at the same time, one Chopper and one Bobber. He’s been building bike frames since he was 15 years old.
    – I was unsure what was the best thing to do. To use our own or Edlund Frames. But as there are many customers who have contacted us from all over the world, "Frames" became the natural choice.

    Right at the $2,500 mark for a stock looking frame.
    Special orders will be a few bucks more.

    Fella asked me about the raked necks, wanted to know if they too was casted like the Oem was..??
    They indeed are.. Has the same look as "Stock" but with more rake .. Only the 30*,34* and the 39 degree necks have the key locks.

    Well, Guys and Gals .....

    Now that I have formed a business partnership with a Swedish company, thought I would try to absorb a bit of their culture ...

    I'm going to try eating some "Surströmming"

    Anybody who has heard of this has the impression that it smells and tastes as horrible as it sounds, but those who have braved it claim it has a phenomenal flavor range.
    Simply put, surströmming is a salted and fermented herring. Traditionally, you would eat it wrapped in a thin sandwich with slices of potato and onions, with the season beginning every year around July to August.



    .... Wish me Luck ....
