The Orange Krate

 

 

ps_2011_11_25___13_39_511998 Orange Krate, built by Jimmy Bortles (formerly of Razorback and Trottas Thunder Cycles), with heavy influence by “Minnesota Mike” Marquardt of Redneck Engineering. This one had it’s own V-Twin Magazine feature in May of 2000 after winning the “Custom Radical”class at the Charlotte, NC Easyriders bike show. There was a matching 1969 Schwinn Orange Krate I restored that went with the chopper. That’s my mother gettin’ the feel of the ape hangers!
