Motorcycle builders always try to keep their bike’s weight as low as possible in order to best value the engine’s power and prove efficient and great performing. But sometimes people feel like breaking the rules and I can’t find a better example than "the Led Zeppelin".
German cars and motorcycles are known for the levels of performance that they achieve and for the fact that reliability and luxury come as standard, so it is unbelievable that the Harzer Bike Schmiede in Zilly, Germany delivered such an outstanding machine not necessarily in the good way, but definitely in a big way. The project was finished after a long year of hard work. After all, a Russian tank engine couldn’t remain neglected and gather dust in the backyard.
The result is what you see in the pictures, a 17’4” long, and 7’6” tall motorcycle that with the help of its 4.5 tons it entered the Guinness Book as the heaviest motorcycle in the world. I wouldn’t call it a rat rod motorcycle even though it isn’t far from being one. It simply represent’s the team’s of German mechanics and welders ambition to do something BIG in the true meaning of the word.
