The World's Premiere KustomBike Experience


REPORTAGE AND PHOTOGRAPHY BY
BR&K ASSOCIATE EDITOR JOHN BRAIN


With the 2010 FBI fast approaching let's look back at the good times we had at last year's event: Summer 2009

14 augustus 2009 -
Veenendaal (Wazzup)- Besides the glory winning the COTY this year the FBI had some nice prizes to give away thanks to our sponsors. The top prize took a few weeks as Coen Visser (V Corps) had to sit down and do his thing. Coen made the drawing of the winning bike for this year winner.

Amsterdam (Wazzup)- This year's COTY winner came from Italy. Alessandro from Plasma custom tells the story about his bike in his own words...

"I've built this bike during the past winter, taking into account the design of the Harley of the 1920s. I've designed radial disc brakes...something similar to the Buell motorcycles.

Within the false fuel tank I've put an Mp3 player. I've found the front light last year in a flea market in Brussels and I've put a LED light within it. The rear light has been made in brass and there is a LED within, too.

The seat is hand made, with aluminiun and leather and a shock absorber. The gear level is like a black skull.

On the fork there is an hidden botton to switch on an off the front light. While creating a new bike, I always like to put something old and something innovative. I also like putting something in brass and some leather details, to which I usually pay particular attention."

13 augustus 2009 - Amsterdam (Wazzup)- The TT class was won by Jacob from Sweden. A very nice custom Basman. The story about this bike in his own words...

"Nearly two years ago I bought an Electracruiser and almost immediately I started thinking about what changes I could make. I realized that just by taking some parts off and replacingthem with other ones, I could create something completely different.

While hunting for the parts I wanted I soon discovered that there were alot more bikes out there and many like-minded people as well. Didn't take me very long  to end up at ChopperNewsNetwork.com and the Chopperdome. I talked my friend Christian into taking a roadtrip to Amsterdam for this bike-happening summer 2008... We had no place to stay, no plan but we had our bikes! We fell, head over heels. It was a great experience, with great people from all over, it was such an awesome gathering to be a part of. Even before this I had seen the Bassman 346 bike, but when I saw it in action at F.B.I 2008 I decided that I had to make my first serious build with a Basman.

Instantly I knew I needed 100 mm rims and monster Duro 4 1/4 tires. It was mainly the rounded shape along the back-wheel that inspired me to follow that line and to let it continue into a seat. The paint-job,the pin-striping and the wooden-parts were ideas that formed during thecreative process and of course some pieces I came up with were the results of running into problems. 

I was fashionably late and got everything together in the last minute. When we arrived to Amsterdam I got alot of positive respond to my Basman, but I never even imagined to win 2nd place in the COTY and to win in TT class. Also, I never thought my bike would roll through both night- and beachcruise, but it did! I'm truly grateful and most of all it has inspired me to continue building more beautiful bikes.

By the way, for next year I'm building a firebike.. "
