West Coast Motors Fatbob Special Project 2020
The automotive world has a wonderful niche: Special Coachbuilding. We are all familiar with the rich history of famous design houses like Zagato, Touring Superleggera, Pininfarina and Figoni & Falaschi to name a few, who created many exclusive body artworks fitted to existing rolling chassis by high-end brands like Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Bentley and Rolls-Royce. These wonderful pieces of automotive artworks were purposely built for well-to-do customers looking for something different and unique. This way many one-off creations and limited series were born, and still are. Cars that breath uniqueness, often becoming instant collector items showing high market values over time.
But what about two-wheeled machines? Does motorcycle history offer these one-of-a-kind specials too? There’s hardly any sheet metal to change, so what’s left to sculpt and individualise? Time to find out!
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
