Spanish Custom Motorcycle Scene

spainbestofshowspainratbikeDon’t hear much about the Spanish Custom Motorcycle Scene.

Two weeks ago was the Iberian Bike Week with local builders competing in the AMD Spain Championship Of Bike Building to win a trip to the World Championship in Sturgis this coming August. Quite a few strange machines among the 60 registered competitors. The big winner, that you will see this Summer in South Dakota is Sergio Bayarri featured here with a somewhat Confederate looking machine with a lot of Ducati influence.

The bike weights only 204 kg (445 pounds) due to an all aluminum frame and carbon fiber body. With a 110″ RevTech engine and such a light weight this bike is said to have clocked at 264 km/h (164 mph) on a Spanish Moto GP track.

Among the weird bikes was this “Rat Bike” using an old SR/XT Yamaha Single cylinder engine and assembled from parts coming from everywhere, except from a catalog…(photography Horst Roesler)

    Interesting how a lot of these custom bikes (from Spain, Germany, Italy, etc.) resemble, at first glance, Confederate Motors models. Whether it’s intentional (ie, Victory Motorcycles) or unintentional, it’s interesting.

    When I look at these customs I personally look at the ingenuity, engineering design, and creativity. Most importantly if the bike is ridable. What amazes me is just when I thought i saw everything every so often something new comes up I havent seen before. Its always fun to try and find where did they hide the rear master cylinder, or figure out how did they did this or that. These guys from Spain fit in this category in my book, I’m intriged. . Very well done guys!!!!
