On The Scene First Pictures Of “Open Mind”

They are not of professional quality, but these first pictures taken during the AMD European Championship in Germany give you an idea of what this bike is all about. Built by Thunderbike Germany. Almost everything is one-off. But I notice (my original pics are much bigger) 2 American parts: a "Rapid" Headlight and Taillight from Crime Scene Choppers. You can see the bike 3D fabrication parts by going to the Thundebike Website.

    Love the looks but would a rear fender be that bad? Seems it wouldn’t be near as bad as hitting that unseen bump at 80mph and getting shifted off the saddle a few inches. Imagine that.

    This is a concept bike. I doubt if it will every be ridden on public roads. A work of art yes..a practical motorcycle no.

    Probably not too rideable on my roads here but I like it. I appreciate the possibility that the rear wheel can rip my shirt off at any time! cool! peace

    During Bike Week I saw practical custom garage bikes and met the creators. They were cool and I wanted one. I don’t get this “concept” for a second. I guess you could hang this on your wall and call it art. Still, only a few from So-Ho might do that. I just don’t get it at all. My groin hurts just looking at the pictures. I know, call it “Torture”.

    Lot of interesting design ideas in Europe, I wish we would get more exposure to them- the German stuff is especially interesting to me- very techy stuff

    Hey there Bertrand , It just does not “cut it ” The WOW factor MUST include the following : Gotta be able to sit on it for HOURS (until you need gas) and go 100 mph the whole time! So for me, who is (kinda boring and dumb) a used, dirty FXRP got more WOW than this . I think guns and bikes go hand in hand as far as “keep it simple” then it works better . Ever see Warren Lanes Stuff ? Thats what im talking about ! ALL BUSINESS!

    I know. Not very rideable but still very cool.
