ORDER A BIKE.
The Donor Bike
OPTION 1: You have a donor motorcycle to use on the project.
OPTION 2: You don´t have any motorcycle and you want us to solve this problem.
That´s not a problem. We can get new or used bikes for our projects.
Even if they are rare bikes, we usually can get almost everything, being in the portuguese market or in foreign countrys.
Note: We don´t use all kinds of bikes for our projects. We use a specific kind of old style bikes, such as Honda´s, Yamaha´s, Kawasaki´s and Suzuki´s from the 70´s and 80´s. Triumphs, Nortons, Harley Sportster, BMW´s R models, Ducati´s are used too.
We work with this kind of bikes models, because we believe that are more compatible with our aesthetics and our design approach.
Please check with us if your bike is compatible to our projects.
The first step in our projects.
Usually people ask us for prices without giving us much information.
If you are interested in having a unique bike built by Maria, it´s very important to specify all details regarding it, so we can have a real idea what we are talking about.
What donor bike will be used? (it´s important to see photos, or preferably see it live)
What is your idea for the project? (concept, ideas, photos, details)
What kind of new parts do you want to install on the bike?
Based on that information, we can develop a overall budget that will be closed to a new one. Of course the final budget will take form after some small meetings or phone calls to take all doubts, regarding all details.
Note: We don´t do bikes under 125cc. As an idea a 125cc bike could cost from 3000 to
5000 euros. Bonnevilles can go from 5000 to 15.000/18.000 euros. (prices without bikes included)
