The most incredible custom motorcycle ever in the 2019

This motorcycle does look a lot different from the custom motorbikes built by motorcycle builders in the world. Yes, the unique-shaped custom motorcycle is called 'The Killer,' which was built by an Australian expatriate who living in the US named Craig Rodsmith of Rodsmith Motorcycle. The difference can be significantly seen ranging from the motorcycle shaped to its engine.

The making of this unique motorcycle began when Booby Haas of the Dallas-based Haas Moto Museum surfed the internet and found some grainy photos of an art deco-style motorcycle made by a group of German engineers in Munich back in the 1930s.

Then he was inspired to make it, and immediately thought of Craig Rodsmith and contacted him right away. Soon they met to talk about the possibility of making the motorcycle.

As mentioned above, The Killer shape heavily inspired from the 1935 Killinger und Freund Motorrad. You might be still remember to the figure of those German's artdeco styled motorcycle which found by US soldiers during the 2nd World War. If forget or not know yet, you can see it in here.

Just like the inspiration source, The Killer was also driven by its front wheel. So it uses 3 identical units of 60cc 2-stroke engines which are arranged in radial configuration and then installed on its 19-inches front wheel. Those engines were built by Rodsmith, himself.

Also the chassis is handbuilt without the modern benefits of 3D design or CNC machines. And could be said it was 'super insane' level of craftsmanship to making it closely similar to the source of its inspiration. The bike features an integrated amber headlight on the handlebars, and the thin seat, also crafted from aluminum materials.

To ensure the front-wheel drive works, he used a centrifugal clutch that fitted to a sprocket, which in turn connected an axle to which the wheel was bolted. The result is a beautiful fluidity that’s unmatched by another bike ever.

This bike has been fitted with an electric starter, but there are technically three engines which have to be cranked all at once. Hence, Craig built a Bendix drive so the starter would disengage once the engine were running.

According to its creators, it is a very easy-to-drive motorcycle, though with very different sensations than conventional rear-wheel-drive bikes. Craig Rodsmith said, "It’s a weird sensation of being pulled by an engine rather than pushed."

Bobby Haas is happy. "I know from personal experience that success is all the sweeter when you accept a challenge to do something you think you’re destined to fail at. My role is to enable genius artisans to create a masterpiece that might otherwise escape reality, and just drift away as a pipe dream."
Indeed, We've been heard the Killer motorcycle is fully functional bike but the project was commissioned mostly as an art works to be shown off at the museum. See it for yourself on display in the Haas Moto Museum. But imagine, once upon a time when you looking at The Killer speeding on the streets - won't that be a sight!

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of two-wheeled monster and stay alive with the true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | RODSMITH MOTORCYCLE | HAAS MOTO MUSEUM | BIKEEXIF | ULTIMATE MOTORCYCLING | ENRG.IO]Note: This blog  can be accessed via your smart phone.
