Glad ya asked .... :wink:

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.

Special orders are available .....

Lets say you have a tall motor sporting BIG cubes and the seat post needs to go up ... "No problem"
Or you want the neck to have some rake .... "No problem" ... 28*, 29*, 30*, 34*, 39*, 42* and 45*
Or maybe some stretch in the down tubes .... "No problem"

Takes about six weeks to build a custom order frame ...

Not very long ago I took a order from a Fella in France for a wish-bone with two inch stretch , half inch raised seat-post and 34 degree neck...
Got an email back from him after he got the frame saying he was a "Happy Camper" 8)

Sorry Fellas ... Seems that I still having problems with posting photos ... :(

Really don't want to send you to another site, but don't have much of a choice in the matter.
Lots of photos of the frames and also comments and photos from folks that bought some frames ...

Got a order for a Straight Leg frame for a Fella in Indiana ..
The ones that I have on hand have a bit of surface rust on em (Gotta love Florida) nothing bad, a little work with a scotch pad gets it off.

Fella said that he rather have one that didn't have any rust on it....
OK .... Tomorrow or Friday he'll have a frame at his door that was shipped from Sweden.... Same cost to him as if I shipped it out of Florida or the Cali. warehouse ....

Our goal is to please ... :)

Mild to Wild ...

By the time it gets to Indiana it should have cooled down enough to get it off the Oops truck .. !! :shock:
