Game Over Cycles, the Polish company which specializes in the construction of custom motorcycles and vintage cars restoration, recently announced a collaboration with the country’s veteran extreme metallers BEHEMOTH and particularly the bands leader, Adam Nergal Darski. Dark and powerful are two words that describe this bike, as well as the music that the band Behemoth performs. The bike was planned by the designers to be a powerful dark machine with exceptional technical parameters and unprecedented ornamentation.
The Behemoth Custom Bike is nothing short of stunning, a mechanical demon that would inspire fear and terror into any who saw it speeding down the road towards them. Looking almost like a tarnished, rusted, demented demon, the bike is truly something a horror fan could get behind.
A truly custom motorcycle, as gritty and foreboding as the music that inspired it, Behemoth Custom Bike is not a collection of off-the-shelf custom parts. The steel construction of the custom bike features a Harley Davidson RevTech 110 engine, Harley transmission and Legend air suspension. Game Over Cycles manufactured the frame, fuel tank (engraved with the band’s logo), fenders, exhaust and notably the front suspension, which is patterned after a gothic mask Nergal wears when performing. Kult Motor DRP crafted the highly textured leatherwork, while Artur Winiowski of Moto-Paint imaginatively performed painting duties.
The wheels are of special interest, as they were designed by Game Over Cycles and manufactured by CFG Custom in Głogów, a western Polish city that recently celebrated its first millennium.
Decorated with bold crosses—a mainstay motif for heavy metal—the 18-inch rear wheel is shod with The Monster by Vee Rubber, which measures a staggering 360mm across.
Behemoth Custom Bike premiere took place on 4th June 2013 in Warsaw, where Behemoth was one of the main acts of the Impact Festival line-up. Except for Behemoth, on the day of premiere the stage hosted such giants of heavy music as Rammstein, Slayer, Korn and Mastodon.
In September 2013 Behemoth Bike won 2 awards at the European Bike Week (EBW), big motorcycle event held annualy in Austria. In a Custom Bike Show contest organized at EBW 2013 by Harley-Davidson brand, our machine took 2nd place in the “Radical” category and won prestigious audience award – “People’s Choice Award”.
In October 2014 at one of the world’s biggest motorcycle events, INTERMOT trade fair in Cologne, Behemoth Bike was awarded 1st prize in RevTech Performance Contest, a contest for the best bike with RevTech components. The contest was held at INTERMOT 2014 by Custom Chrome – a world leader in the wholesale distribution of aftermarket parts and accessories for Harley Davidson motorcycles.
