Euro Bomber. $780.

PFD0PFD2PFD3Not a typo. European custom builder Paul Funk bet he could build a custom bike with a parts budget of only 600 Euros (US $780.) Not only he won his bet but by the same token is showing youngsters that they can get a nice ride for less than the money they can make working a summer job for 2 weeks.

PFD4Ok, labor is not included in the budget, but the Euro Bomber was built without professional tools.

Of course, a little bit of luck helps: Paul found a Honda CB 450 wreck for $200 and spent $298.50 on nuts and bolts, a few more on breakers, gaskets, fresh oil and spray cans. For the theme, he thought of what Steve MCQueen would have loved to ride…

The Euro Bomber will be displayed this weekend (may 11-12) at the AMD World Championship Of Custom Bike Building to be held in Essen, Germany. Paul Funk Designs.

    Pipe will retain color if jet-coated.

    Have a 131` inch nitetrain and have pipes jet coated.
    Motor is just about maxxed out horsepowerwise.
    Black coating has held up for three years.
    No, i don’t run an oil cooler.
