Two times World Championship third place winner Fred ‘Krugger’ Bertrand of Belgium scooped seventh. He’s the master of the new retro racer, antique classic, refined jewel.

No one has the touch of Krugger and so far this in the Bikernet favorite of the European winners. But I’d like to throw in a thought. When it comes to competitions such as this we seem to be drawn toward bikes that look historic, and the flashy chopper are left behind. In the past we looked at stock classics with distain, tore ‘em apart and built candy apple red, stretched monsters. All of a sudden that 40 layers of hand rubbed lacquer, and smooth as-a-baby’s-ass sheet metal is frowned upon. I say we divide the classes, so the craftsmanship of both realms is considered.

We are going to cover one more European Championship winner either tomorrow or the following day. I felt it was imperative that at least one wild chopper make it into the mix.—Bandit
