Brown Sugar was the first custom bike Christian Gietl built. He bought a crashed Triumph Bonneville and put the motor in a rigid Penz frame. The wheels are DNA big spoke 2,15×21 and 8,5×18 with a 240 tire. A lot of parts are garnished with holes, even the fenders an the cole foster gastank. The speedo is welded into the handlebar to get a clean look. The only suspension the rider has is the mountainbike shock under the solo seat. What looks like an oiltank is just the box for the whole electric parts. The bike has won: 3rd place at the European Bike Week (the only non Harley till now I think) 3rd Place CCE rookie award, 1st Place at the Custombike Show in Germany.
