La Chica Bonita

Bobber1Bobber2Bobber3Bobber4Maybe one day I will launch a discussion on the reason(s) why so many builders of custom motorcycles and cars name their creations with Spanish names. “”La chica es bonita” means “The girl is pretty” and nobody knows if builder Fabian Muller is talking about “her”, his bike, or “her” at his side on the top picture, his daughter working with him at his shop, or “her”, but who?

5bobberBobber6Another example of Chopper and Bobber fusion style, “La Chica Bonita” is a display of custom parts created or distributed by Müller Motorcycle AG, a shop located in Bavaria, Germany with a great reputation in its own country and surrounded by beautiful scenery to stimulate imagination.

Bobber7To be hired at the shop, you must be more than a fabricator, mechanic, engine re-builder, etc. You must be a true bike freak, in and out of the shop. And it’s during one annoying long stop and go stuck in heavy traffic that one of the shop boys said ‘enough is enough” about a painful left hand cramping from holding the clutch. It’s the way the Muller Power Clutch was born. The shop also has quite a few proprietary parts like its own branded internal throttle, its adjustable up to 13-degree X-triple tree/risers combo, its own “Beast” 6-piston calipers, grips, etc.

Bobber8Bobber9Although the tech sheet below will tell you more in details what “La Chica Bonita” is made for, let’s just mention the chassis – frame and the oil tank – by Austrian Penz Performance and also the modified Sportster gas tank. A combo from which you can build many reasonably priced variations of the “Chopper/Bobber style so popular during these last 10 years, both in the USA, Europe & Asia. Müller Motorcycle.

    Is it just me, or are the only riders that can even afford to look at expensive Euro custom Harleys are fat German guys who live with mom and Arab oil sheiks?

    A nice daily rider. Bar hopper?

  3. 3 Chris Davis Apr 14th, 2014 at 10:22 am

    Ha, yes. Why builders choose Spanish names for their creations?

  4. 4 John Apr 14th, 2014 at 10:23 am

    This style has been seen many times. But it still works.

  5. 5 Terence Tory Apr 14th, 2014 at 10:24 am

    Chris Davis, dunno. But I bet the Germans have a saying about it.

  6. 6 Brandon Apr 14th, 2014 at 10:25 am

    Not the usual Drag style so popular with the Germans.

    For those complaining with too many big dollar bikes, here is one very affordable.

    The girl, bike & background make for a fine feature. This cat gets it

    Put one of the Power Clutch units in my wife’s FXR, works great, easy pull! As to the Mexican-German connection, kinda like a sauerkraut – burrito, I guess

    I like it.

    It´s a Promobike for all of his parts. The two in the picture are the kids of Müller sen.

    I´ve just build up a bike with his internal throttle and clutch (for my handicapped bro) and it really works smooth.

    Nice Bike , Evo motors look run and sound good.
    Springer Front end , softail frame, classic style and nicely finished.
    Not too much bling and nice paint. What is there really not to like about it.

    I try to be positive and always check what colour pill I take in the morning.

    Thanks a lot for so many response! I´m Eva, the girl on the left side. For me it would be very interesting to know, what do you think, what´s the price of the bike!? Cause, i mean, that we made it very cheap. Especially, when you recognize all the special parts like the internal clutch (do you have seen that there´s no clutch lever?!) or the front fender, which is nearly the tire in connection with a springer fork?!

  21. 21 James just another Crazy Kiwi Apr 15th, 2014 at 5:06 am

    Hi Eva ,
    yes I tried to take a guess at value but hard as I don’t know price of a number of components including frame and build time. it would be a guess. I noticed Alloy front fender a nice touch as long as they do not flex ,crack or work harden.I am sure you already know that though.
    It is a very nice bike . it is a good looking practical MoroCylce that has allot of “Cool’ factor..
    …..So how much…??

  22. 22 Eva Apr 15th, 2014 at 5:23 am

    Hi James,

    the price was not much higher, than a CVO Breakout cost from stock … but the worth with all the parts, work and “soul” which is in the bike is much more higher. And then you have a really special bike, who has no one else.

  23. 23 Len Apr 15th, 2014 at 6:03 am

    I’m quite bad in estimate but I find the bike definitely cool.

  24. 24 KD Apr 15th, 2014 at 6:25 am

    I’m not real big on the bobber style but I like this one. Dressed up but not too much. And to have a hot chica painted on it makes it even better!

  25. 25 Magnet Man Apr 15th, 2014 at 7:20 am

    Where does She sit? My lady is treated right!

  26. 26 1550tc Apr 15th, 2014 at 8:53 am

  27. 27 dmj Apr 15th, 2014 at 10:10 am

  29. 29 Eva Apr 15th, 2014 at 3:16 pm
