I have known Fred Kodlin since the beginning of the 90’s, competing with him in bike shows, from Daytona to Sturgis. He imposed a custom style that everybody can identify at first glance, making him one of the most recognized builders in Europe, in the USA and beyond. A style characterized by extreme body work and custom sexy one-off parts that he later produces in his own German facility. With his creations, Kodlin targets a very high end private clientele.
With his custom parts, custom shops and individuals building their own bikes and looking for semi-exclusive radical parts parts going from frame to risers, and almost everything you need between. Some will deny his custom motorcycles as only rolling pieces of art. But it doesn’t matter if it’s no your custom building genre. You must respect the talent and work involved in each of his extreme builds.
“Outtalimit” is the type of custom motorcycles that doesn’t require a lot of words to explain what is involved in its elaboration. A lot, and much, much more than what you can imagine, especially if you never built a bike. So, kudos to all the crew of fabricators, welder and CNC machinists. From front to rear end, flowing lines and sculpture details are Kodlin trademarks. A lot of the parts already ended up in Kodlin’s catalog. Others come from the best vendors in the industry. Since I am able to publish excellent photography, let’s the images do the talking about “Outtalimit.” Kodlin Motorcycles.
