The unlikely mix of The Crosser
Rock 'N Bike uses an 883 engine
Following our story on the winner of the AMD European Custom Championship (see related stories), here are the two runners-up:
Second place: Rock 'N Bike
Using a more common 883 Harley engine instead of the Buell motor favoured by some competitors, the clip-on equipped Rock 'N Bike by French builders Art of Racer is covered in machined and drilled holes for a lightweight race look. The chassis features rigid suspension all round and a leisurely 42 degree rake angle. Wheels are also taken from the donor Sportster , but with polished shrouds to hide the spokes. A hand change (complete with a skull design shift knob) isn’t exactly race-spec either.
Third place: The Crosser
An unlikely mix – motocross style and a 1982 Harley Shovelhead motor (tuned with S&S tuning parts). The rigid frame looks supports two 21” Akront motocross rims with knobbly tyres (the rear is particularly cool – the hub is a single sided design supported only on the left hand side!) and a single brake caliper bites onto the rear drive sprocket. Built by French firm Riverside Motorcycles.
