Radical Spanish Chopper

Sometimes, looking in my digital files, I find a motorcycle that I forgot to feature when it appeared on the custom scene. This one last year at he AMD World Championship Of Bike Building. Not my style, but some of you like the “radical over the top” look. What will surprise you is that it is was built in Madrid, Spain by a shop called Team Sable using a 1971 Harley-Davidson Shovelhead platform! How strange, like the name. It’s called Barro (Mud!) although it doesn’t fit the profile of dirt track racing. (picture HRF)

    I can appreciate that someone worked very hard to make this bike and I’m not crapping on it… but absolutetly nothing about it suits my taste.

    To each his own, I’m sure its owner loves it.

    This bike was never at the World Championship. Cyril probably got confused sorting through Horst’s 100 million photos, but it was at last year’s European Championship in Mainz where it finished in 28th place.

    Team Sable from Spain also build a bike called (The Paisa), they win at Faro event 2009 (MC.Faro).
    I like this crazy motorcycles, the unique problem is the Kg. but for this the bike have also a Turbo.

    This reminds me of something out of a Sci Fi movie maybe the Alien in the Alien movies. Kind of like the inside of the cave in 1st movie. It is other worldy to be sure: 1 part serpant 1 part insect 1 part machine.

    Overall it is striking.

    The main difference of this straightforward bicycle from other conventional bicycles is the bulky, bike type tires. Riding the bicycle is a fun experience but the rider should be careful when driving since there was no indication about the brakes so far.
