The Raven

The Raven is a new motorcycle. Built the way motorcycles used to be manufactured, simple, light, fast and easy to handle. Jeff Gundlach, the man behind this classic and functional creation loves choppers, most of his life rode Nortons and Guzzis, loves the coolness of choppers, bobbers and sport bikes. 
All body work you see is one-off, hand made. Geometry is 25-degree rake for a total wheel base base of 58″. Motor is a ’71 750 stock Ambo with a very light flywheel (3 lbs). Engine is used as stress member and mounted high from the ground for easy cornering. Wheels, swingarm, brakes, forks and steering stem come from a ’68 Honda 350. Sprocket on the left accepts a 530 chain. Electric system uses a Lucas alternator and digital regulator.

  1. I precisely needed to appreciate you yet again. I am not sure the things I would have carried out without the entire information revealed by you about such a topic. It had become a very horrifying problem in my view, however , spending time with a new specialized way you processed the issue made me to leap over happiness. Now i'm grateful for your service and as well , believe you realize what a powerful job that you're putting in educating men and women thru your web site. I know that you haven't encountered any of us.
