Coming From The East. Speedy G Bobber.

In less than one week, exactly August 8th in Sturgis, a lot of new creations are going to be unveiled during the 2010 AMD World Championship Of Bike Building. So, it’s time for me to finish my European tour of the custom motorcycles scene with this bike built in Slovakia, a small 5 million people ex-communist country located in Central Europe. It still amazes me that this style of bike has such a worldwide universal appeal and you will be happy when I tell you that “Speedy G” was built with the main parts sourced in the US. An S&S 96″ engine, Baker 6-speed, Paughco rigid frame, and stock Harley wheels. And I acknowledge that it is the main reason of this post. Is is a legal ride in Slovakia? Huh, the shop of Ivo Kollarik & Jiri Olicis is called Unauthorized…(Photography Horst Roesler)

    Cyril you hit it right on the head when you said universal appeal. I think it’s because that style of bike makes a statement to your subconscious mind – first, that you will not be riding with a passenger; second, that there is nothing on the bike that doesn’t have to be there; and third, the bike looks like it is going fast even just sitting still. That style speaks to us Cyril. It’s the same message that spoke to me when Harley introduced the XLX-61 back in the early 80’s.

    Nice looking work. All of it fits well together. I think the handlebars wouldn’t work for my old back but nobody cares about that. I like the exhaust, kind of tired of the short dump out pipes you see a lot of.

    Nice bike, kind of race style.
    Rigid frames should be legal at least the strong ones.

    damn nice…. I like it so much, I think I am going to borrow some cues for my chop. Love the white tank and flat black rear fender. LOVE IT!

    Now I just need to find a BIG AS sticker for the tank and I am doing some hard core stealin!
