The Orange Krate

1998 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!
