"LADD" / Fred Krugger
"At the first sight, the challenge was to enhance the general design without fading away the inner dynamic feeling.
To do so we first underlined the shape of both gas tank and tail with a combination of 1.1 kilograms of 950/1000 silver and our Weirdium alloy (a "black to the core" silver based alloy we created in our lab)....
After, every single letter of the logo was blackened with a potassium/sulfur mixture to achieve a beautiful monochromatic shades of grey.
We've also used several silver plates to upgrade some mechanical parts.
A good opportunity to mention the birth place of this Belgian piece of Art: Liège a little town filled with great craftsmen.
Beside the bike itself, we focused on the ignition key.
It had to be precious, of course!
We choose to give it a mechanical "gear" look with its 3.2 grams of 18ct rose gold. It's set with 2 matt onyx cabochons and screwed to a plain 46 grams silver "wing".
In addition to these features, the second key displays a little knife blade hidden in its square body... Very unique, as it has to be part of a Krugger!
Back to the basic with this new bike , VTwin engine, carburator, smal wiring , hardtail..."
