From Belgium: The Krugger Goodwood

Some people just won't buy an R1 or a GSX-R1000...

Freddie 'Krugger' Bertrand is a two-time Belgian national enduro champion and an ex-rally driver. These days, he builds whacky, eccentric, one-off motorcycles like the one you see here. This bike, the Goodwood, is built around a Harley-Davidson v-twin engine, which also acts as the chassis. The front forks are blade-type, with a single centrally-mounted shock absorber.

The Goodwood: Harley engine, alternative front suspension, cafe-racer styling

Speaking to Bike magazine, Krugger says, 'I think the 70s cafe-racer look is the coming thing. In the future, the big manufacturers will make bikes like this.' Er... don't think so, mate. Anyway, more pics and details on the Krugger website here.
