The Ride Launch Party Recap

At Gestalten Space
Posted by Angie—08/2013

Last Friday, The Ride: New Custom Motorcycles and Their Builders was launched at Gestalten Space in Berlin! It was a vrooming great evening filled with excitement, adrenaline, and laughter. Not only were we amazed by the coolest custom motorcycles by El Solitario, Ehinger Kraftrad, Wrenchmonkees, Kaffeemaschine, JvB-moto, and Herzbube displayed at Gestalten Space, but also by those exquisite ones parked outside in the backyard!

Here Gestalten.tv took the chance to meet with celebrated builders including Per Nielsen of Wrenchmonkees, Herzbube’s Bernhard Elflein, and photographer Kristina Fender.

If you missed the party, you can still visit the temporary garage this week. The show is still up and running until September 1, 2013.
