Freestyle Excellence. With A Sexy Video As A Bonus.

Each custom motorcycle competing in bike shows has it’s own specific merits, and this one by Canadian shop Kreater in Toronto got it’s unique personality via a very original hand made frame built from tapered oval tubing and featuring a truss-style design in which the engine and transmission are an integral part of the chassis structure. And if you pay attention to the following pictures, you will notice that this 34-degree rake, 2″ under one-off frame (named “Steam Punk” by shop owner George Tchor) got a removable down tube and a fixed position rear axle, adjustment of the wheel being made vis a chain adjuster, not the usual wheel adjusters.

Named “18”, this low slung rigid is a celebration of simplicity made possible by integrating the oil system inside the frame tubing and hiding all electrical in the bike belly. Gas tank was hammered and formed from sheets of aluminum and festures cute cooling ducts. Front suspension is provided by a RMD front end. The bike rolls on a front 21″ (Avon tire 120/70) and rear 20″ (Avon tire 220/50) and braking is via a Brembo (front) and HHI (rear) caliper.

Power comes from a 96″ Twin Cam with S&S Kreater Air Intake System coupled with A Baker left side drive 6-speed Baker transmission using a Performance Machine narrow primary system. To complement the completely blacked-out engine, transmission, wheels and front end, all aluminum parts were painstakingly hand brushed by George Tchor himself. A result appealing to the judges of the Sturgis AMD Championship Of Bike Building who placed “18” in 4th place in the very competitive Freestyle Class.

    I agree that its a great looking bike ……. but honestly I’d rather see it on the road than in any museum .

    I would have to agree with @GuitarSlinger on this. I would love to see it on the road, my eyes would pop up like in cartoons.

    Normally I don’t dig this type of frame but the detail in this bike is artistic and functional. Everything comes together to make a bike that I would definitely ride! peace

    When I first saw the top of the page without the story I thought it was one of Satya Kraus’s bike’s. Can’t help but notice the resemblance but maybe it’s just me.

    The bike should be in a MUSEUM, and the girl pole dancing in my bed room…. Great photography and video production by the way.
