We were talking in the shop about custom bikes and Martijn mentioned a bobber made by a Dutch builder. My curious nature led me to do some research. The Merlin from Dark Star Kustoms is even better than I expected. DSC is from the Hague - where I used to live - and is run by Philip van Geest. He managed to build is this bike in only five weeks.
The engine is a Harley Davidson '45 WL engine. The frame is custom-built with a springer fork and the accessories were brought in from various sources. For example a bicycle headlight and the steering wheel were taken from a Belgian moped. The bare-metal look is amazing. (pictures by Floris Velthuis)
