That you like or not theme bikes, you must admit that this concept Harley-Davidson motorcycle is quite interesting and successful at translating on a 2-wheeler the pre-World War II spirit and streamlining of a 1936 Bugatti 57SC Atlantic.

    Now; that’s an artistic theme bike…not just some flea market crap welded on like some others have done. Not for me; but definitely curvaceous to look at…

    … and one last to leave on a positive note . I usually hate theme based ‘ concept ‘ custom bikes . This … is the rare exception ! A theme based custom bike done right ! Heck .. it almost looks like something Ettore himself might of done had he ever chosen to design and build motorcycles

    Usually I don’t care for these kind of concept bikes. This one I like. The front wheel, the paint, the tank follows the roof line of the car…Nice!

    Well done Tamas.

    All the curves match, as does all the other finer points. It really does look like the Bugatti factory took a shot at building a cycle in 1936.

    Best concept bike I’ve seen to date – they appear to be long lost “twins”

    Great Job ~ Joe

    That is really beautiful! I love the color — the lines are perfect. Need to ride that in Miami.

    Wow, that rules. His other concepts are bitchin as well. He has a killer design eye.

    Arlen Ness did much much better 20 years back; oooooooooooh πŸ˜‰ !

    Very cool. Great job.

    Reminds me of Arlen Ness’ SmothNess which he designed after a 30’s-era Bugatti. Image from

    Nice lines. Very similar to car.

    I’ve always liked Arlen’s ’57 Chevy bike… this one as much or more…

    Are you seeing this Paulie Teutel? This is what a “theme bike” should look like.

    Very nicely done Tamas.

    Maybe we can get him to make a motorcycle version of one of the Delahaye Roadsters next.

  20. 20 laurence zankowski Jan 22nd, 2015 at 7:27 pm


    or the Delages or hispano suizas or Talbot Lagos, basically I guess anything by the French Coach builders Franay

    btw: look for the book French curves.
    be well

    I’m afraid I’d be too ugly to ride this! It’s such a beautiful piece of art.
