Cool New Bikebrothers Interpretation of Bobber Theme

Hi Guys,

we had a motorcycle fair last weekend in Germany and the Bikebrothers
presentated a very cool but also different interpretation of a Bobber.

Will show you some pics so take a look and let's start the discussion about it...

In Germany there are very contrary opinions about the bike.

I think it is a totally different but very cool bike, like japanese Bratstyle Race Look.

But I like new ways or styles and it is a well done craft job they did.

Cheers
Ram

I really enjoy looking at the BikeBrothers work. Great job!!
Wunderkind also take a lot of pride in their builds. Did you see any of their bikes at the show ??

Although not to my personal taste, I do applaud them for coming up with a unique concept and executing it well. Great job and very interesting.

Cheerio,

Sometimes, with some objects, you can get so far down the ugly/random/abstract/messy scale that the thing's appearance starts to get really interesting -- even fascinating. In rare cases it ends up totally redefining "beautiful."

That's not the case here. This ridiculous steaming turd ranks somewhere between an atrocity and a sin against God.

It's probably not legal to imprison those who created it, but if we all chip-in maybe we get get them to burn it. I'll throw in the first $20.

It's a shame I think Bike Brothers do some awesome stuff and combining a Speedster with a Bobber can work, just checkout this 48...but no this is a BIG fail!!!

I like the wheels and exhaust. I dislike everything else.

There are some elements I like. I think the fairing is interesting, particularly the craftwork around the engine. I love the seat. The engine works well with the bodywork.


If it were me, I would:

Ditch all of the graphics. It just plain looks uncoordinated and trashy.
Keep the bike all one color. The gray is pretty cool. Black would be better.

Get rid of that fat rear fender with the "spoiler". Chop and hug it.


Do those things, and you may have a viable motorcycle.

I've spent my fortune on wine, women, and motorcycles. The rest I wasted on everything else.
