Custom ’51 Harley Davidson Panhead by Thunderbike




German company Thunderbike Customs is quickly making a name for itself in the world of custom bikes, and this 1951 Harley-Davidson Panhead is just one example of the amazing work these guys do. Originally founded as a Suzuki dealership, this company has produced a number of breath-taking custom Harleys over the last decade.




Starting with a 1951 Harley-Davidson EL, Thunderbike rebuilt the motor and upgraded it with an S&S Super E carburator kit, S&S manifold, and Custom Cycle Engineering rocker covers. Many custom vintage-style parts were added, including the wheels, bars, and rear fender. Once everything was finished with the build, the look was completed with a custom leather seat and a wicked orange and black paint job. Believe it or not, there wasn’t a single piece of the original bike that wasn’t utilized in some way – either on this bike or some other custom motorcycle constructed by Thunderbike. We think that’s pretty impressive – if you do as well, like and share our post!
