Talk about a wild ride. Yes, the owner rides it long distance, and recently made the 750 miles round trip from his garage in South of France to the Mecrin Bik Show, surviving all the turns…and being invisible to the cops.
And technically, it may be considered a Harley because based on a 1991 883 Sportster powertrain. As you can guess, balancing the chopper on its huge girder-type front-end is quite challenging. Seeing Bruno take off is a spectacle by itself. Yes, he drags his boots until the bike has enough speed to be able to steer the far-away girder-type front-end. Except engine and tranny, as you can imagine, all the rest of the bike necessited handmade fabrication from steel tubes and recycled scrap parts (fences, old military accessories, tools, chains, etc.) Bruno rode back home safely his long legged Sportster now equipped with a new accessory, a trophy for Best Of Show (story and photography with contribution of Horst Roesler)
