Nelis-Bakker TL1000 ridden
MCN has ridden Mathijn Nelis’ amazing Nelis-Bakker custom-framed streetfighter – and you can read all about it in the March 31 issue of MCN.
Nearly all of the skills involved in the build were learnt as Mathijn built the bike – apart from a few basic workshop skills, Nelis entered the project blind. It makes the end result even more incredible – in the flesh, the overall look as well as the detail is stunning.
The frame for example is a complex construction of tubular chrome-molybdenum where no part is straight – each tube is curved. The swingarm is made the same way, and the brackets to hold the bellypan styled in the same way. The handlebars are hand-made, and all of the bodywork is flawless hand-beaten aluminium. The parts that aren’t made in house are top quality too.
