At the world’s largest trade show for converted motorcycles, the custom bike show in Bad Salzuflen, the Polish customizer “Game Over Cycles” (GOC) presented a completely converted Yamaha Niken. GOC rightly won the “Craziest Bike” award with its tricycle.
The head of GOC, Stanisław Myszkowski, commented on the genesis of the company’s latest project: “Niken to many people is revolutionary, to others a controversial bike. This is exactly how people also react to our custom bikes, that’s why I got interested in it right from the beginning. In terms of technology nothing should be changed in this machine. The Japanese technical solutions at the highest level provide Niken’s great driving abilities, but from the first moment I saw it live, I felt we could modify its appearance and give the machine a little different character. To achieve this we changed the whole body. All plastic elements have been replaced by aluminum, thanks to which the vehicle’s shapes have become more sharp, even aggressive, without losing its aerodynamic properties. Bearing in mind Niken’s speed one can say, that now this motorcycle cuts the air almost like a samurai sword “- laughs Myszkowski.
The possible movements of the Niken were a particular challenge in the project. Due to the two forks on the front, you have to take special care that body parts cannot collide with one another, no matter how the individual wheels compress or extend.
Around 1,400 hours were worked on the motorcycle.
