Iceman II: Hardcore chopper for F1 ace Kimi Raïkkönen


The Iceman II is suitably understated and menacing. Should be perfect for an F1 champ!

It seems all the F1 guys are riding bikes these days. First it was Michael Schumacher who recently got to ride Stoner’s Ducati and amazed everyone with his speed. Now it’s current F1 world champ, Kimi Räikkönen, who’s gotten a chance to ride. No, not a MotoGP machine, but a one-off chopper – the Iceman II – made for him by Marcus Walz, of Hardcore Cycles.

The Iceman II’s Harley engine has been tuned to produce 120bhp, and the carbonfibre bodywork is painted in Ferrari-red. More details on the Hardcore Cycles website here.
