# 19 Monster Munch, William "Builder Brothers France" 727 points, 1st Place COTY 2010
"The Monster Munch was realized with a basman frame as donor. In April 2007, I bought a Basman frame, which I totally cleaned of it's paint. The works had begun well, but I had a serious bike accident in May.
The project was put aside for almost 1 year. Once recovered, I started the construction again and I made some changes to the original plan.I realized that I had difficulties in riding it correctly due to the accident I had the year before.
So I had a look at an electric hub to make the bike easier to ride. I am now completely recovered, but I admit that cruisin the electric way is so great.
About the finish of the bike, I am a maniac. It is necessary to say that I am a coachbuilder and model maker at the same time, that helps .
First of all, I decreased it of 5 cms to be as low as possible. The fork comes from Metropolis that I transformed. The back hub is Shimano Alfine. The engine is one 37V from Velectris. All electric cables, durit and speed pass are put inside the frame and are 'invisible'. The frontlight has been changed to LED. For the color, it is "Arancio Borréalis" of Lamborgini.
I chose this color especially, I wanted to pay tribute to a disappeared buddy for whom I had made a bike of the same color,
so when I drive, he's with me.
For 10 years of the FBI Choppernation, I will see if I can make a small nice project... "
