El Marinero Borracho

El Marinero BorrachoThe showbike "El Marinero Borracho" is the creation of Christian de Kant of DK Motorrad. Born out of his passion for Japanese bike culture and the spanish language, this bike is loud, low, and fast! It took Christian 6 months to complete El Marinero Borracho. "Over here in Switzerland building a custom bike is very slow." he says, "Cool parts are hard to find and local shops hardly have anything in stock."

Christian says his addiction with vintage Harleys started in high school. Born in Germany but going on 10 years in Switzerland, Christian has been building bikes since the age of 16. Past projects include a 47 WLa 71 rigid ironhead and couple of newer Harleys.

Multiple future projects are in the works including a 71 shovel and a 47 Knuck.
