When I feature a show custom motorcycle that you like and end my post mentioning that the bike and its builder’s next trip will be to Bonneville to race it, some of you express some doubts. One week ago on August 24th, I featured “Flyer“, the winner of the “Production Manufacturer” class of the AMD World Championship Of Custom Building, telling you that its Spanish Builder – Sergio Bayarri – was on its way to the Salts of Utah to test his motorcycle against the clock, and prove to the world that his custom bikes are made to be ridden very fast. Something that all small manufacturers should do to convince buyers to buy their products, even if it’s only a series of 50 units, like in the case of SBay Motors Co.
For all newcomers to Bonneville tasting the Salts for the 1st time is extremely addictive, and Sergio excitation is again the proof that nobody can resist to the very special atmosphere and pure camaraderie between participants.
Sergio has already made a couple of runs (graciously fitted with Arlen Ness leather clothing) in the class ” Run What You Brung.” Equipped with a 110″ Rev Tech engine, “Flyer” was previously clocked at 164 mph at a Spanish Moto-GP course, and whatever his performance in Utah during the next couple of days, you can be sure that Sergio Bavarri will come back in 2011…with a new show/racing/linited edition custom motorcycle.
