El Fuego Drag Race Style Bike

Three months ago I published a custom from Thunderbike Germany in exactly the same Drag Racing style and overall stance, painted in the same typical Harley black and orange colors. So, why to do it again when this new one could be considered just a simple variation of what you have already seen? Of course, the wheels…. Contrary to popular biker belief, the very fat rear tire is not dead, and in Europe it is still well and alive. Or trust me, you would not see them popping out one after each other from the most reputable shops of the old continent.

You better off find a very cool wheel design if you want to roll a 280 mm. And since Thunderbike produces its own wheels, why not promote a brand new design. CNC machined during very long hours from a huge block of aluminum, this wheel model is simply called the Thunderbike Monoblock. A bi-color treatment and adorned with pinstriping make the 2 wheels more unique than unique.

El Fuego, name of this new Europe road legal custom uses more or less the usual recipe of components of the typical German Muscle Drag Bike, A Harley Screaming Eagle 110″ engine, a fat tube Thunderbike Dragster RS frame, a Thunderbike single sided swingarm, an air ride suspension kit, V-Tech Design controls, TB front and rear fenders, Thunderbike RS Air Cleaner, double walled TB drag pipes, Motogadget Motoscope Mini speedo, Kellermann Rhombus LED with integrated taillight & brake light. Thunderbike Germany.

    Looks difficult to ride to me! Seat , handlebars and shifter, brake placement would take a unique body to ride that thing! Put the brake and shifter back and it would be fun to ride!

    These guys are always in the 2 or 3 at AMD for a reason. Their work is outstanding.

    You’d look like a complete twat riding this bike but that’s not the purpose. Is it? If you were a serious collector of fine custom motorcycles, you would own this bike.

    Drag style? It should have a standard swingarm. I normaly like the single sided, but not on this bike.

  13. 13 Smittydog Apr 9th, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    That is one bad ass looking bike, I love it.

    Great build – they seem to consistently deliver some cool rides.
    Let’s see riding shots…

    I had seen many custom bikes infect one of my cousin he is associated with the same work of modifying bikes. I must say among what I have seen custom chopper this is one of the best bikes ever I had seen. Great work.

    Belongs in a livingroom not in a garage

    Looks,High Tech. It is, a V-Twin High Line, Euro Style, Japanese style, with Engineering Built and refined by German’s. It has got to be a Top Shelf and should be a highly copied Motorcycle. I still think and so do they that The HD Engine is the best looking Motor………Great Job Thunderbike !!!!!!

    Looks good, but as already stated above… it is a Waltz Hardcore inspired look.
    Rear wheel looks nice though.

  21. 21 Johnny Wolf Apr 10th, 2012 at 12:42 pm

    Another un-rideable bike. Forwards, drags with a drop seat?….Really? It’s a shame that people with obvious talent, build bikes like this.

  22. 22 burnout Apr 10th, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    I would like to run it thru the quarter mile. peace

  23. 23 Martin Twofeather Apr 10th, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    It’ pretty awesome…

    So what’s the dig. Going back fads were created in California and filtered to the east coast.
    By the time they made there way ( fads ) to the east a new fad had already started in California. Print media wasn’t fast enough to stay ahead of the curve.

    Shame to invest in the past when one knows what’s coming in advance with current technology / media.

    Down and out or is it down and under trying to get out. LOL

    I agree with Doc Robinson. The fat rear is not dead. The days of unrideable bikes is dead. The stretched and fat unrideable piles of crap that where spied in every show and magazines is not the bike, that I believe, the riding public want…that’s right…the RIDING public not the show and pose public!

    Wild Bike, Top Build, congrats.

  27. 27 willie Apr 17th, 2012 at 3:33 am

    this look is dead as a dodo. i mean, seriously, what’s the idea pretending to ride a harley, when almost everything on it hasn’t even been close to milwaukee?

  28. 28 Chopper Custom Bike Apr 18th, 2012 at 12:15 am

    What at-track the biker in customize bike is their look. One single look is enough to destruct bikers mind on the bikes, the same feeling what I am feeling know after seeing this bike.
