Our client wanted the full pack: a bike with full costumization. So our approach was to build another Bonnie (the 10th) but still different from everything else. We had no special briefing. Our client told us to make a simple bike, easy to ride, with no big tech parts. Just a beautiful and different machine.
Since we love objects inspired on the 2nd world world, we decided do pick a color based on some tanks. The stripes however came from the wings of the D day US planes. The overall look has no special meaning at all. It was just a colors game and references to the military universe. In the end we thought the name Lieutenant would fit perfectly on the bike.
