Morning Sunrise...

   ... is one of the coolest builds that attempted the AMD World Championship back in 2005. And even now, this bike makes me think about racing, Bonneville and stuff like that.  In one word, it ''moves'' me.
    It looks axacly how a drag-racing bike should look like; low, a frame, engine and motor. But with that traditional attitude, look and design.

    It was built by Headbanger Motorcycles in Milan, Italy. The frame was built by specialist engineer Luciano Andreoli. S&S Knucklehead 96ci. Most parts were built in house by HBM, like the 21' wheels.
   ''Hand made frame, rigid but not rigid... for the first time ever, the suspension softail system is inside the downtube and it works with the movement of the upper tube iron Knee (front end and swing arm are rigid). Oil Tank, gas tank, handlebars, fender, front end, master cylinder, wheels, seat and Sunburst paint color.... are all hand made.'' -AMD quote.

Here is the 2005 photo set from the AMD, before Morning Sunrise got repainted. So much to see here... Simple, yet not so ''simple''.
