The Process

BMW Cafe Racer


  •  Decide on a style or combination of styles. 
  • Send us pictures of bikes, cars, architectural objects etc. that you find attractive. 
  • We will create a motorbike mood-board to develop the final design brief.

Building Art

  • Once the design concept has been formulated we will source a suitable base bike, which can also be supplied by the client. 
  • The base-bike will be modified with a mixture of supplied and custom made parts. 
  • Depending on the concept, condition of the base bike etc., the build process will take between 2 and 4 months, consisting of a large amount of specialist hours. 
  • Building a Rude Bike can be considered an art form, a combination of our collective creativity and sensing what the bike wants to be. 


Life After Build

  • Owning a Rude Bike will be a personal experience whereby the people that built your bike will only be a call away. 
  • We are always happy to see our creations return to the garage for touch-ups and similar. 

Note: Rude Bikes, albeit beautiful, are built to be ridden, not to collect dust.
