Each of the 30-or-so motorcycles on display in the mirror hall of the Bremen Classic Motorshow 2020 is unique, yet they all have one thing in common: They are customisations on the basis of classic motorbike frames built to meet the wishes of customers and the inspirations of customisers.
Tradition-loving classic motorcycle fans many turn up their noses at the sight of the now unrecognisable Moto Guzzi Les Mans 3 or the BMW R60 from the 1980s. But other, mostly younger, members of the scene don’t think it a sin to live your individuality, even by expressing it through a classic motorcycle. What’s more, usually the conversions also have a practical purpose – to improve the driving characteristics of the vehicles. In a cooperation between the team behind the Cafe Racer Forum, the enthusiasts of Wheels & Wake, the dudes from Classic & Custom Bikes in Bremen and the Bremen Classic Motorshow organisers, a new element will be added to the Bremen Classic Motorshow 2020.
Nevertheless, the connection with classic vehicle tradition remains, because the original models behind the customisations must originate from before 1995. And proof that the North-German customiser community works creatively at the highest level of craftsmanship is demonstrated by workshops such as Chopwerk, Boxerconcept, Boxwerk or Kaffeemaschine (photo). Visitors to the Bremen Classic Motorshow 2020 can certainly look forward to exciting models from categories such as bobbers, scramblers, trackers or cafe racers. Chatting in a relaxed atmosphere, over a cup or glass of the drink of their choice, they can get down to the nuts and bolts of the exhibits or simply get to know like-minded fans from the North-German motorbike customiser scene.
