It’s retro, it’s steampunk, it’s a café racer with a twist, it’s a one-of-a-kind drool-worthy motorcycle. Presenting the Beezerker.
The Beezerker is the culmination of 11 months of design and fabrication by Chris Flechtner, owner of SpeedShop Design in Seattle.
The heart of this beast is a rebuilt 1965 BSA A65 motor, which is probably the only part on the bike which hasn’t been heavily modified or built from scratch.
The gas tank and tail section of the Beezerker were formed by hand from aluminum, the forks are fabricated from sheet metal, and the down tube doubles as the oil tank. The twist clutch is also Fletchner’s own design, which shows off his machining skills.
Because much of the bike is made from stainless steel and aluminum, it lends itself easily to not being painted, the better to show off the unique lines of this ultra-rad ride.
The Beezerker won 5th place in the freestyle class, and second place in the Metric World Championship class at the 2010 AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building, and just recently captured the People’s Choice award and first place in the Freestyle category at the 2011 Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show Seattle.
