This week, I learned that I have readers in Tasmania and that Tasmania has motorcycle shops and custom builders. Tasmania? Although I am well traveled on several continents, I had no precise idea of where Tasmania is located. It’s a large Australian island just over 150 miles from the mainland, and is its southernmost state. Roughly the size of West Virginia, the 26th sixth largest island in the world, Tasmania offers great scenery, good food and wine (their bubbly 2nd to France, they say…)
Well, in Tasmania there is a shop called Titan Bike & Trike telling me that they would like very much to be featured in my news website. Not only because they are proud of their creation but also as an introduction to their first trip to Sturgis where they will compete in the 9th edition of the AMD World Championship Of Bike Building (show dates are August 5 to 8.) As you can see, fabrication work started as a flat sheet of perforated steel hand beaten into shape to follow all body work and main accessories…then nickel plated for a result, well…like you never saw before. Only in Tasmania.
