All episodes of Building the Brute can be watched here.
How cool is it to build a motorcycle that looks exactly like the one in your dreams?
We accepted the challenge together with the custom builders from Wrench Kings. A Yamaha TR1 from 1981 was completely transformed into the café-racer of my dreams. This motorcycle will be used in the video reviews on the FortaMoto YouTube channel. But how does such a dream begin, or better than that – how does such a motorcycle get built?
A 9-part series has been made about this whole process, it’s called ‘Building the Brute’. It is with great pride that I would like to present you with the first episode, where we meet the bike, the builders and myself: Laurens from FortaMoto.
Stay tuned! The next episode will show you how the design took shape.
