A German-made Breakout

New Harley line-up demands to be customized, and Thunderbike in Germany is one of the first to take on the challenge.

The world of customs continues to defy both expectations and definition. Gone are the days where you either had a one-off build, or you just hoped there were enough after-market parts to make your bike look different enough to stand out from the crowd. With the recent announcement by Harley that they Dyna line-up was gone and replaced by a completely redesigned set of Softail models, it was only a matter of time before a dealer would take up one or more of these approaches. Thunderbike of Germany appears to be one of the first with this fantastic looking take on the Harley-Davidson Breakout.

You may notice that wheels and engine haven't changed, but some bolt on parts from Harley's catalog, and some custom parts from Thunderbike make this a pseudo-custom. They stretched the tank, put a fat tire on the back, and changed out the turn signals, pegs, and risers.

The result is a cool looking bike with just enough customization to make it standout from the off-the-truck version.
