Written by Henrik Salling, who appear to have genuinely enjoyed his job.
Frederik's new costumbuild motorbike was put on display at the CPG Lifestyle fair in Copenhagen last weekend. - Where it attracted considerable attention!
The bike has been build by Uffe Lauge Jensen, who is the only certified motorcycle-builder in DK since the age of the Nimbus. (*)
Frederik had popped by the fair to have a look at his new wheels, which will be at his disposal in May. (**)
Uffe said: "The Crown Prince was here for a couple of hours and looked at (the) details. And he was very enthusiastic. I've promised to help him get it into his office, where it will be standing initially".
Uffe Lauge has several times visited Frederik at Amalienbor to discuss the design.
An additional seat can be fitted to the bike, should Mary wish to play a biker-chick.
The bike is held in black, both matt and glossy. To the left side is a copy of the tattoo of a shark, that Frederik has on his leg as a momento from the Frogman Corps.
On the rear fender is Frederik's monogram in sky blue, the monogram is also on the gear-shift and below the spedometer. Here however the monogram is adorned with four brilliants (fragments of a diamond) symbolizing his four children.
The seat is made from the skin of a stingray.
The model is a costumized version of Great Dane, should you wish to order one.
In which case you may wish to have a chat with your bank as the prize starts from 550.000 DKK or 100.000 $ including vat and taxes.
Frederik is invited to visit the factory in Løsning, where the bike was made.
- It appears to me that Frederik has recieved a favourable deal. The finished bik is on exhibition, fair enough. It will not be delivered until May. and he is more or less expected to visit the factory. - So Uffe Lauge get som advertising.
(*) Those who know a little about older motorbikes will know this name, the rest, well....
(**) Just about the time where a lot of other middle-aged men also straddle their bikes - and get themselves killed all over the place.
Pathologist are fond of motorbikes....
