Retro Racing Sidecar

WildStyle000WildStyle2WildStyle3WildStyle4WildStyle5I could not forget to feature this creation because it’s very rare that a sidecar ranks so high in a top custom motorcycle competition like the AMD World Championship Of Bike Building (last May 10-11 in Essen, Germany.) “Pure Vision” by Wildstyle received the 5th tallest trophy in the Freestyle Class regrouping top builders showing their one-off ground up customs.

WildStyle6In this bike show class, you can expect the wildest creations, the most outrageous modifications, and Pure Vision is full of tricks that would require a lot of time of observation to be discovered from these pictures. Starting with a 1942 Harley Flathead engine and tranny, shop owner Roman Bus’s vision was to build a bodywork and to use parts in the style of what could have been raced on the track or fast ridden on country roads during WWII.

A lot of tube bending, steel forming went in this creation. Concession to our time, “Pure Vision” is equipped (bike frame and sidecar) with an air suspension kit to adjust level depending of road conditions…and of course to impress judges during bike shows.

    Incredible build quality – the more you look, the more details you spot. I’m not surprised it placed so well at Essen.

    That’s a serious chain linkage!

    When I build a show bike I will make sure the tires don’t still have the casting stipes on the tread still hanging out.

    Those are ice spikes!

    Very nice, but not a fan of the heavy chain down ‘tube’ style wise.
