I made this bike as my bachelor project in Industrial design at Lund University, LUID. Rides really good and is everything that I wanted it to be. Inspiration came from everything between the 1920's to Café racer's. The intention was that it should be Iconic, express craftmanship, speed, flow and only have the essentials
