25th Anniversary Bike

Open Mind

customized Thunderbike Special Showbike

Development, production of components and body made by Thunderbike

The construction period of the “Open Mind” was 3 months, the total development time about half a year. The entire development and production of all components as well as all body work was carried out exclusively by the team around Thunderbike. The operating elements such as gas, clutch, brake, gearshift, air suspension, etc. were combined with each other and not visibly integrated in fork and frame.

The result was a super clean overall impression, which distracts neither by screws, cables or lines from the design and deliberately creates the impression that it is an inedible study. The spectacular show bike is driven and braked by an equally invisible friction roller drive. Air suspension at the front and rear lets the bike lift for driving. The paint system is 28 layers thick and interspersed with different sized metal pigments. All stripes are hand-lined (pinstriping).
