Being on bicycles for 40 years and motorcycles for 20 years I'm glad I can use that experience at Paul's Boutique BMX shop and as a Biltwell Dealer in the Netherlands, Europe. Loving almost everything on wheels and its hard to miss that at our shop: Classic cars, MX bikes, BMX Old School bikes, Harley-Davidson's, Skateboards are all over the place and the only thing that stops us is the lack of space. I started the Hoodlumsociety blog to show people what we are doing in our spare time, hope its interesting enough for you to visit us.

We also build some Old School BMX bikes, here a 1984 Hutch Pro Racer for customer #0000004. Almost everything NOS: Oakley2 Grips, DC MX1000 Brake, DC TechIV Lever, Tioga Comp4 Tires,Izumi chain, Hutch Hubs/Seatclamp/Numberplate,Pedals, Repro Hutch Kashimax Seat/Padset/Stickerset and a very nice Hutch Pro Racer Frame/Fork/Handlebar set in new coated white. Redline Flight cranks/BB/Sprocket to make you more envy. Don't know excactly but it will be worth more than â‚¬ 3000,00.....Owner is happy and so are we, very nice bike, have fun in the snow.
Bought the SX125 without a battery and batterystrap. Conrad shipped the VARTA battery real fast but being white wasn't fitting the bike so I made a sticker on the plotter to make it black. You can still see the level of the acid. The strap is from a Motocross Enduro numberplate and to keep it fully carged I added a 12V plug. It can also be used for charging my phone/navigation or even a fridge.....
Schooiers Chrome, Mexican Chrome, Rattlecan Chrome, you can name it what you want but this rusty left side brakepedal is looking better than before. A new chrome one only cost about 25 Euro's, to chrome this pedal costs about 125 Euro's and this job only costs me Euro 2,50 and 5 minutes of time and is bringing me home cause real Chrome won't bring you home!
To install a new Biltwell H-bar I must get rid of these Japanese Honda CB triple clamps. It took me a full week to make these work on this bike, lots of grinding/polishing and new bearings/cups made it possible but now I'm gonna use 1986 sporster clamps that goes with this '86 fork. Ordered a converter kit from LOWBROW from 7/8' to 1' and started to polish the upper clamp yesterday. Still lots of work but the winter is long.
Exhaust from the '67 Ironhead made of a Biltwell Exhaust Pipe Kit was tested during the summer so now its time to grind the ugly welds and smooth it out as good as I can, not really smooth but so you can see I made them by myself. Speedline Coatings is going to work on them this week to put a ceramic coating on them so they don't turn blue anymore and keep the rust away. I have seen some good results from these guys so I hope they can put some magic on my pipes too.
Brakepedal for the 1972 Ironhead took a while, shifter was done almost 2 years ago but with planning this one took a lot longer. Again a BMX Webco crank and axle was used, axle welded on the brake pivot. Welding skills came back today, not top notch but good enough to make the bike stop....I hope. Pedal axle with a piece of Universal MX bars and Proper BMX barends to make it even more BMX. Testride tomorrow.
Never been to the BIGTWIN show but I decided not to ride any more Motocross races this year so we went to see some bikes at the Autotron Rosmalen. Now I know why I never went to the show, not to offend some builders but it was not worth going. Definitly not my kind of bikes except for these ones and a couple more so I stay home next year. Our son liked it though and took a lot of pictures so that made me happy after all.
Skyway Tuffpedal kicker for the '67 Ironhead. I don't like the reproduction "copper" kickerpedals so I'm going to make a new one from an old Skyway BMX Tuff pedal. Probably worth more than the repro but I only had one, have two new gold Skyway cages, might use one of them or make the red cage polished silver.
