I am sure you have seen this bike in countless websites, forums and blogs and after a minute of 'nice!' you go ahead. Then you read it somewhere that it is a Roger Goldammer creation and you are like 'Ok...' but but Goldammer makes those awesome stunning designs which always gets the top spot on custom design contests and this is rather plain, isn't it? Then you read it somewhere that this particular model made it to the 9th place in the World Championships. Okay, now you take a second look. That is exactly what I have done. Then when I saw the engine with a detailed eye, My-O-My! That looks like a Manx!!!
When you think Custom, the first thing that comes into mind is Choppers, right! This is where Roger is different and thats why he is truly the master of custom bike championships. For instance, take a look at another of his products, the TROUBLE. The fisrt glance wont give away what the bike actually holds. Well, lets not divert here from the Nortorious here. We all know this man and here are a list of achievements if you really want the details.
Friend, mentor and master machinist Bert Kuckelkorn and Roger makes bikes that are truly innovative in styling and mechanics or you can say 'on the cutting edge of technology'. the Nortorious is a step higher in the rouble direction, which was also a single cylinder masterpiece.
Look at the body and the fenders. There is no welding involved! Really! Roger had hand hammered the aluminum skins! With such precision, he can create probably a Rolex with his hands and available tools. There is only a clear coat over the raw material and the paint used.. is only for lettering. Now, what do you say?
