The 68th Milan Show is going on all weekend, and among the big manufacturers showing their new models and concept bikes, the display of American Saxon Motorcycles (Stand 2P-US-5) trying to convince dealers of the merit of their Crown high neck chopper.
This model was designed by Gard Hollinger of LA County Choprods and takes its design clues from the 70’s. Geometry is 2″ stretch backbone, 6″ stretch down tubes, with a 3.25 gallon gas tank, a 96″ engine, a Baker 6-speed transmission and sold with a 2-year warranty. “The Crown is our 5th model we introduce on the European market since 2006” says Frank Vermeulen, owner of Saxon Motorcycles Europe. “Our ‘true american motorcycles are very popular in Europe” according to c0-owner Rinke Andringa. The company states that they are now represented in 10 European countries with their most recent dealer in Russia. For 2011 Saxon Motorcycles USA intends to introduce for 2011 a new Bagger model designed by Jim Nasi. Renderings of this new model should be available very soon for publication in my Blog.
