Goldammer Nortorious

Nortorious cafe racer by Roger Goldammer
Roger Goldammer has created some pretty wild custom motorcycles over the years, but to our eyes, his 2007 ‘Nortorious’ is the best of the lot. It’s a modern take on a Norton Manx cafe racer, with a featherbed-styled frame housing one half of a Harley V-twin. That single cylinder is a substantial 965cc though, and force-fed by a Rotex supercharger running 20 pounds of boost. The oversized headlight, slanted back in the modern style, is actually from a VW Beetle—and the drum on the front wheel is hiding four-piston disc brakes. The finish is up to Goldammer’s usual extraordinary standard, but there’s little paint on this bike: most of the bodywork is clear coat over bare metal. Delicious. [Image by Randall Cordero.]
