My mate Piers over at Derestricted has been doing a few Bikensteins lately, so I got a bit motivated to give it a go myself. This one is based on my nr1 dream bike, the Britten V1000. Now, if anyone would actually attempt to build this bike for real, they should be shot, because if you have a Britten to start with you sure as hell should keep it as it is! In my mind however, this one would be possible if you'd have a crashed Britten to use for an engine donor and then some mates over at KTM to supply the Freeride concepts bodyparts and someone down in Italy would have to nick a few things from the Moto Guzzi V12 concepts aswell, but if all that can be sorted I reckon you have a mad cool wheelie-machine! Stopping power is another issue all together considering those tiny little wave discs though...


  1. haha excellent, thats a beast indeed! Those twisted pipes make me thing of intestines bursting out of a body. Crazed. If u take the saturation down on all layers and then add it back in with an adjustment layer over everything or individual bits it will all blend together.

  2. dude, it looked nicely blended together on my screen at work but now at home it looks kinda shit... maybe that's why all my printed stuff at work looks weird too :/

  3. lol, the mysteries of monitor calibration! I have 2 at work side by side and everything looks completely different, colors, saturation, curves, brightness despite a year trying to make them somewhat similar. Of course printing stuff it then looks like neither screen either!

  4. YEAH !

    I hate to admit this, but Piers really may have started something here.. might have to give this whole frankenbikes a shot.
    Kinda taking the whole freerideSM parts usage as a compliment too mate!
    How are you Martin? Write me!

  5. :) please do feel complimented, the freerideSM is great! Will write you soon, all ok over here otherwise. There's a few bikensteins over at pipeburn.com aswell, but not really that good, looking forward to see one from you!

  6. blaspheme! die evil schwede. how dare you try to improve perfection!! i think the next time we meet i will make YOUR intenstines explode out of your body. luv ur fav kiwi
