The Picturebooks Tourer 2019

Never stop riding!

The Picturebooks have been cultivating a top relationship with Harley-Davidson and Thunderbike for quite some time now: two years ago, we created the unique “The Picturebooks Bikes” in our forge – two Softails that were rebuilt in the 70s Chopper Style. Now it’s time to get something new going!

Together with Harley-Davidson, The Picturebooks had the idea to equip the guys with new Touring models so that they could manage their long touring trips. The choice fell on a Street Glide Special (“Horse of Fire”) and a Road King Special (“Howling Wolf”), which are equipped with all kinds of Thunderbike features. The right sound is a must for musicians – it comes from the manufactory of the band’s newest partner – Dr. Jekill & Mr. Hyde Exhausts. See the full article from Dr. Jekill & Mr. Hyde here.

The Picturebooks headline this year’s two biggest Harley-Davidson events: The European HOG Rally Cascais in Portugal and the European Bike Week Faaker See in Austria. Of course the bikes are the right tour partners for the two.

First of all we accompanied the boys with the camera to record the development of the two bikes. In this video you can see the beginning of the cooperation, in which the two tourers are equipped with Dr. Jekill and Mr. Hyde equipment and the first plans are forged with Andreas Bergerforth and team for the further conversions.

Of course we accompany the boys with their rebuilds. Stay tuned for more Updates!
