Seattle-based designer, maker and Coroflotter Christopher Flechtner runs Speed Shop Design LLC, a design firm "dedicated to the design of all things fast." Flechtner's wicked-looking Beezerker motorcycle just won both the People's Choice award and First Place in the Freestyle category at the 2011 Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show Seattle.
The Beezerker's tank and seat area consists of hand-beaten aluminum, and it's safe to say Flechtner's comfortable working with metal: In addition to holding degrees in metalsmithing from both Cranbrook and the Massachusetts College of Art, the designer studied antique sword restoration in Japan.
These aren't the first accolades the bike has won, by the way; it was awarded prizes at both the Los Angeles Calendar Motorcycle Show and the AMD World Championships of Custom Bike Building. Motorcycle USA's got more about the Beezerker here.
