Hollywood, FL (PRWEB) October 04, 2013
When Sam Nehme of Broward Motorsports received an invitation from Yamaha’s Star Motorcycle division to compete against some of the top motorcycle customizers in the U.S. in their “10-Bolts – Ten Builders” competition he accepted without hesitation. Sam told me, “I saw it as an excuse to build the custom Bolt I’d dreamed of since the release of the bike.” Yamaha’s challenge to these ten builders was to take a stock Star Bolt and turn it into their vision of the custom motorcycle they would ride. That was it. No limits, no directions, no rules, just customize the bike the way they see fit and the public will determine the winner by Facebook voting.
Looking at the ten submissions, what becomes immediately clear is that Sam truly had a different vision for his Bolt than the other builders, and one which was vastly more complex to build. Sam comments, “When the Bolt was released, its minimalist styling and lack of chrome made it obvious to me that Yamaha’s design team was influenced by the rebellious minimalist-style bikes built by returning WWII American Servicemen in the '40’s and '50’s. For me, I knew my Bolt would pay homage to the motorcycle style known as a Bobber.” Lucky-13 (his name for the bike) was created and submitted for voting by Broward Motorsports, and epitomizes this revered and thriving sub-culture of motorcyclists.
Broward Motorsports' entry is the most original and authentic of all bikes in this competition, and one of the most complex and difficult to build. The finished bike’s details and craftsmanship are unparalleled; in a word, this bike is simply exceptional. Viewing Lucky-13 for the first time, you might think, “Simple; just a frame, fuel tank, wheels, engine and handlebars... what more do you need?" Then you look more closely and you see:
Words cannot do justice to this build; it deserves and must be seen in order to truly appreciate the commitment and vision of Sam and the Broward Motorsports team.
Every vote matters in this competition, and Lucky-13 is in a neck & neck race for first place. Please take a look at the gallery of photos and video of Lucky 13 and, if you like it as much as I do, then place your vote - it takes less than 10 seconds.
