Maker By Nature

Take a look at the brief video about Laurent Amann, owner of Storik, UK-based builder of custom motorcycles, and restoration parts for airplanes and autos.

While the U.S. is not without its own site of unique builders and restoration artists, we're consistently amazed and impressed with what we see being built in the UK and elsewhere in Europe. Storik and owner Laurent Amann are no exception.

His most recent build, the Rafale, is no exception. This cafe racer is designed around a1970's Triumph Trident 750cc engine. The level of fit, finish and detail reflect Amann's background in engineering honed in the automotive world. We're glad he took that background and put it toward building bikes.
