Fat Attack Lowrider

If you want to know what kind of radical custom motorcycle you could legally ride in the US, just look at Europe,  a continent where each country has very strict automotive regulations and in addition must respect euro emission standards. Although the custom bike you are looking at is still in the final stage of approval under the aforementioned rules, no doubt it will be because each of its component has already been individually approved for use in all Europe.

The Performance Lowrider being still extremely popular across the Atlantic, Urs Erbacher, a Swiss Top Fuel Drag Car pilot and head of both Erbacher Racing and of Fat Attack Custom Bikes, one of the most high-profile custom bike shops in Europe , is proposing this model to both dealers and retail clients at a cheaper price than most custom motorcycles built from the ground up. Of extreme importance for large diffusion,  by keeping stock both engine and driveline, it is conceived to be acceptable for servicing by any Harley-Davidson dealer around the world. 

The Swiss shop uses a TUV approved after-market frame, just modifying the steering head (extra rake up to 10 more degrees), stretching the frame backbone and lowering the rear for a true Lowrider riding position. To ensure strength and safety in all modifications they make Fat Attack is using its own modern welding technology equipment required by their Top Fuel racing cars and bikes . This first model is based on a Walz Hardcore frame, using Rick’s wheels & custom parts (fat front end, stretched gas tankm etc.) Confident that this Custom Lowrider homologation is imminent, Urs Erbacher is already accepting orders. Options are available regarding rake, paint job and for some custom parts. Fat Attack Custom Bikes AG(photography H. Roesler)

    The simple answer to your question is: Supply and demand …. no demand no supply.

    I like it, it’s got nice lines & a clean look, more of a rally or city cruiser than a distance bike though , cant really see that seat feelin very good after more than an hour…

    This bike is kinda like Waltz Hardcore, drop seat, low and lean. Have to admit the europeans have some great products, like this gem of a motorcycle.

    oops sorry, I was referring to their bikes on their website, impressive. No drop seat on this bike, but still looking good.

    Damn, I’ d give one of my nuts for this bike…I only ridge rigid bikes but I’d make the exception for this one. The pipes, the rear to font wheel size ratio, the color scheme, the tank, the babes! Man, I know exactly what my next bike is going to be! If it was a rigid, I’d find a way to get one to the states.
