2013 European Bike Week
The German bike builder Thunderbike Customs won three awards at European Bike Week 2013 in Faak, Austriam, with its latest creation, “Unbreakable.”
The custom Harley was observed by about 75,000 H-D enthusiasts that attended the European Bike Week, which is the largest motorcycle rally in Europe.
In the Harley-Davidson Ride-In Show, the Unbreakable was elected to “Best Custom” and “Best in Show.” In the Arneitz Customshow, Thunderbike was also able to prevail against tough competitors in the highest “Championship Class.”
Additionally, Thunderbike’s “Nickel Rocker,” a Harley-Davidson Softail Rocker C, won the cup for a second place in the “Modified Harley Class.” Overall it was an enjoyable weekend for the custom builder, which is located in Hamminkeln next to the dutch border.
Thunderbike president Andreas Bergerforth was overjoyed that he was able to finish his new bike in time for the European Bike Week. The build took about six months.
It was a world premiere for Thunderbike. For the first time a 26-inch front wheel was installed in a handmade frame and a completely new front end. The noble painting by Ingo Kruse and a nickel-plating of many parts took once more a lot of time, so the schedule ended up with a few days to assemble the bike and send it well lashed on the journey to Faak.
The Germany premiere of the Unbreakable will be held this Saturday , Sept. 14, 2013, at the Thunderbike Open House in Hamminkeln.
