This Sportster-based custom will be one of the few signs of genuine originality at the AMD World Championships Of Bike Building next year. Designed by Bernard ‘Buck’ Massart of the French custom motorcycle shop VTM, it’s built around a Harley-Davidson Sportster engine. The SpaceSter looks like a motorcycle designed on a CAD system, but apparently the cladding was all shaped by hand. Oil is stored in the frame and the flow of the styling is inspired—particularly the fins behind the engine. The front upside-down fork is from a Yamaha YZF-R1, attached to an 18” wheel, and if you look closely you can see the vent for the exhaust on the lefthand side. If you can read French, there’s a PDF feature of the bike from Wild Motorcycles here. Details are otherwise scant, but I have a good feeling about this machine. Do you think it will win?
