In addition to bringing news to its readers and featuring new motorcycle parts, the mission of a magazine is to support custom builders. Without them, no motorcycle magazine is viable. So, MCM Scandinavia, the leading custom bike magazine since 23 years in this part of the world has decided to create a Bike Of The Year award competition. And it’s true that the Nordic custom scene is bubbling over with creative energy. Among 10 finalists, not surprisingly, MCM readers voted Stellan Egeland creation “Hustler 8-Valve” bike of the year. A few months ago, I had the opportunity to post about this extreme piece of two-wheeled art where every single component has been handcrafted except the 1930’s Harley crankcase and Norton gearbox. By the way, the trophy is also a true piece of art and was designed and cast in solid bronze by artists Ola Stenegard and Andreas Krause. More about this bike at: Service SE.
