To tell the truth I always feel proud and not to transfer the feeling of delight when the pages of the Western sites find custom bikes Russians. But this custom bike lit up at the most prestigious motorcycle resources of the United States, Israel, Italy, etc.
Particularly pleased that Vasily Arkhipov, namely the so-called our compatriot who built the bike, took as a basis for DKW NZ350, drawings which were imported from Germany to Russia in the 45th year of the last century. Motorcycle began produced at the Izhevsk factory, becoming one of the first in Russia.
According to the website of the author, referring to Basil, they had a DKW 2017 in poor condition, some parts of Izha and engine from Yamaha. The wheels and brake system were borrowed from the Yamaha R6. To install the motor had to digest the frame, but this was not stopped, and Basil digested the fuel tank to the carburetor diffusers bring out. The rear wing bracket seat and license plate holder are made of carbon fiber, and the entire electrical and battery hidden in a leather glove compartment directly under the seat.
The entire project took 10 months Basil and Basil says he was able to build a comfortable bike for everyday use.
