As we regularly feature motorbikes here on the pages of The Coolector, you’d think we’d be proficient at riding them but not so and it is invariably the aesthetics that are the first thing that draw us in and so it has proven once again with the supremely stylish looking Tasmanian Devil Motorbike from Hookie Co. Offering the sort of bold, stealthy visual impact that we love at Coolector HQ, we’re sure there will be plenty of other motorcycling aficionados equally as enamoured with this stunning looking steed.
Hookie Co are a German motorcycle workshop which already have a mighty impressive array of custom bikes under their belt but it is the rather excellent looking Tasmanian Devil Motorbike that has really caught our eye here at The Coolector. Expertly crafted from first class components and boasting a real visual flair that will set it apart from the crowd, this is undoubtedly one of the coolest looking contraptions we’ve encountered of late.
The Tasmanian Devil Motorbike from German workshop, Hookie Co, really is a sight to behold and boasts an awful lot of devilish design details that are impossible to ignore. This first class ride comes from a donor bike of a 1991 Harley-Davidson Sportster XLH 883, so, needless to say, it’s starting point is already a pretty impressive one but things just kept on getting better the minute the talented team at Hookie Co got their hands on it.
A lot of work went into creating the sort of motorbike that will turn heads everywhere it goes – something the Hookie Co Tasmanian Devil Motorcycle will unquestionably do – and it’s easy to see why this German motorbike workshop are really beginning to make a name for themselves in the world of custom motorcycles. With this eye-catching steed, the frame of the original Harley was cleaned and reduced down and a hidden subframe for Flattrack seat added to give it a striking aesthetic that is beyond compare.
There was also a lot of bodywork done on the Tasmanian Devil Motorbike and this included a chopped Sportster gas tank, aluminium seat, chopped fender struts, subframe for the seat and a modified battery holder to name but a few of the more telling alterations. All these elements combine to create an out of this world machine which rides as well as it looks and scores highly in the style department.
With such attention to detail in the design and choice of components, the Tasmanian Devil Motorbike from Hookie Co boasts an exceptional, robust performance. It has a Stock with EMD XR Rocker Cover motor, Supertrapp 2-1 Muffler with custom exhaust, 1.5″ lowered with custom lowering spacers suspension, 19″ Wheel setup with Goldentyre Dirt Track Tires and minimal custom wiring, Li-Ion Battery, LED Headlight, Kellermann Signals, hidden Rearlight.
This is undoubtedly the sort of motorbike we’d gravitate towards here at Coolector HQ if we were proficient on two wheels but, given that we’re not, we can just revel in its aesthetic awesomeness instead. Hookie Co aren’t a workshop we’d encounter previously but now we’ve seen their capabilities with the Tasmanian Devil Motorbike, you can rest assured they’re one we’ll be keeping an eye on from now on.
