Hey there,
today I need international help from you!

Unfortunately I have no garage at the moment and therefore can not screw on real motorcycles.
Therefore I have now taken on a part-competitive and designed a bike for the German Jever brewery.
Of over one hundred submitted designs I have now made ​​it into the top 6 and now I would be very early
if you could help me with something of your choise.

You can find the voting link on the JEVER facebook page or below this link:

of course only if you like the bike ;)

Thanx from Germany

Asphalt D.

This is it:

Jeez, I'm glad I never got to see the other 94!
I don't think it's a real motorcycle. I think it's a digital 'drawing', a cut and paste of images of parts.

yes it is a composing with photoshop and 3d... it is just a layout, for a german brewery
it was very much dictated by the German approval to get.
No completely free design possible ... the colors were specified.

Sooo, an American chopper for a German beer?

Why not a hardtailed BMW? With Earles forks?

the declaration:


i do not have Harley and I will have none.
I think the brewery has decided to build a harley because
it is mainstream and the world champion comes to time from Germany

it is just a competition

Is the header wrap for performance or for protecting the legs :)
Is this like a question an attorney would ask? An attorney never asks a question they don't already know the answer to. Header wrap on a motorcycle does not make enough horsepower to make a noticeable difference (around 1%).

In a bizarre sort of way, that is actually pretty cool. I would have gone for the lace paint job though. And more candy paint. you can never have too much candy flake.

There's that wacky fork brace arrangement again... I'm trying to figure out how it would be more effective than a solid brace closer to the axle?

I would think the closer to the axle the less effective it would be. Isn't it's main purpose to keep the forks from bowing in the center and relieving twisting/torque steer under braking?
