The chief enemy of creativity is a "good sense. - Pablo Picasso
The combination of classic vehicles and art takes on a new dimension.
Stef van der Bijl, an insane artist, designer and childhood friend of Cool Classic Club founder Robbert Buijs.
To get an idea of what else this all-rounder comes up with: https://vanderbyl.nl/ .
This artwork is a thought child of a moment when Stef was walking down the street and saw a curved lantern next to a car crash.
The shape greatly appealed to Steph, and he immediately thought of it as a tank of a motorcycle.
It wasn't until 10 years later that he found the motorcycle that was to be the basis for this process: a 1980 Harley Davidson Electraglide.
This Harley already had an EVO engine which did not heat up as much as the original Panhead engine.
All in all not only a showcard but also a technical masterpiece.
Engine and gearbox were restored by Beast motorcycles.
Two opera lights, a horse saddle, and the expertise of body shop Jansen provided a result that touched many.
As a result, the bike won the same award twice at different events:
- Best Custom Bike Award at the Big Twin Bikeshow.
- Best Custom Bike Award during the Distinquished Gentlemen Ride.
Now the bike is looking for someone new to steal the show on a true work of art.
Will you stop by soon?
