Mr. Ingo Pape is a custom bike builder from Mandello Cycles in Germany, who likes to do things differently now and then. Well I made a post on this creative artist some months back and this post should have come after that to maintain the continuity, but... Sorry for that anyway. Nonetheless, go through the post to get oriented to what Mandello is all about. Basically he customizes Guzzi motorcycles according to customer demands.
Here is one such model where a customer wanted a mixture of a dragster with a low-rider. Usually Mandello's favoirate outfit is hard-tail chops, so the firm took this as a challenge and got him thinking.
Of course there are handcraftyed items too like a traditional customized bikes. The mudguards and footpegs were hand-crafted from stainless steel.
The bike has a lean, purposeful look, with clean, angular lines definitely inspired by Harley’s V-Rod , but I find it looking aaa... umm... a bit more attractive than the inspiration.
