West Coast Motors Fatbob Special Project 2020

The automotive world has a wonderful niche: Special Coachbuilding. We are all familiar with the rich history of famous design houses like Zagato, Touring Superleggera, Pininfarina and Figoni & Falaschi to name a few, who created many exclusive body artworks fitted to existing rolling chassis by high-end brands like Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Bentley and Rolls-Royce. These wonderful pieces of automotive artworks were purposely built for well-to-do customers looking for something different and unique. This way many one-off creations and limited series were born, and still are. Cars that breath uniqueness, often becoming instant collector items showing high market values over time.

But what about two-wheeled machines? Does motorcycle history offer these one-of-a-kind specials too? There’s hardly any sheet metal to change, so what’s left to sculpt and individualise? Time to find out! 

See the Coachbuilders Encyclopedia for the continuously expanding overview of designers, coachbuilders and their numerous creations from past to present.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
