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.
