Swedish Stellan Egland builds one-off custom motorcycles with designs that nobody expects, ranging from the ultra retro to the highly futuristic style. To the point that nobody knows exactly how to categorize each of his bikes. And it’s better this way because one-off motorcycles should always surprise, interrogate, even be controversial. Stefan will tell you that this one is not a show bike, a street fighter or a sports bike. It’s The Harrier! He designed it as the first bike in a new line of minimalist modern customs. As you can see, a bare bones speed machine with very little aesthetic details.
A kind of sports bike getting rid of its fairing/body panels, unnecessary accessories and free of a paint job to show only its technology. I would say a very mean and exciting machine. The bike is based on a BMW 1200S. A few features: adjustable front-end geometry via a push/pull system of cables. Boneblack calipers (4 front, 6 rear), on or off ABS braking system! Air scoops on the sides of the fuel tank to support legs when attacking corners! Etc. Can it be that the next Café Racers will look this way? The bike took second place this year at the European Championship Of Bike Building. So you should see it in August in Sturgis. SE Service (Picture Horst Rossler)
