Have been lamenting your lack of something with a unique aesthetic between your legs? Well, forget American Chopper and grab a plane for Denmark, because Copenhagen’s Wrenchmonkees are building some of the most insanely cool bikes around.
Looking like a mix of Isle of Man and Rat Rod, the Monkee #11 eschews the over the top and overexposed modern chopper mien in approbation of a slightly off-kilter TT racer. This is just one of a number of custom bikes that Copenhagen’s Wrenchmokee has crafted out of rebuilt motors, new, and custom-made parts.
Starting at $20,800, these bikes are not for the dilettante, but whether you want to see or be seen, each one is imbued with cool. They offer bikes in two forms- standard and custom. The standard bikes have limited changes made to them, but are rebuilt to be as new. Custom takes the bikes to a whole new level, and as you can see, these bikes would look just as at home in your living room as your garage.
Wrenchmonkees will deliver to EU countries, and to the US, but as they note, that could get expensive. But as the guys in the long coats at the back of the magazine store say; it don’t cost nothin’ to look!

Makes me wish I hadn't given that CB750SS to my brother. Oh well, there will be others.
Oh, and these don't really take any special skills to put together. Once you figure out the carbs and charging systems, they get downright easy to put together and work on. I don't say that to take away from these guys, as they're obviously very good at what they do. But what they really excel at is vision. What I'm getting at is that bikes like these are super-cheap to get started on and don't really take any space or a bajillion dollars in custom parts you have to buy. It's really about minimalist styling and excruciating attention to detail.
The dude who bought my rolled-over Jeep does this. Had a redone Honda 500 in his garage, said he had less than $1500 into it (lucked out with the famously handbeaten/formed tank) and it looks friggin’ awesome! Trying to get pics…
These Wrenchmonkee rides are all kinds of awesome, too. Not sure $20K awesome, tho…
[…] If you’ve got a bent for classic café racers and live in Denmark, you’re in luck. Oh, it’ll help if you’ve got cash bleeding out of your ears, too. Custom bike builders out of Copenhagen, Wrenchmonkee specializes in whipping together a mix of rebuilt, new and custom parts into slick manifestations of my own two-wheeled dreams. The guys say they’ll be happy to ship their wares to the EU and the US, but buyer pays those costs and bears the burden of getting the thing titled. Prices start at $20,800 – and that’s before the trip across the Atlantic. Check out the gallery for some more shots of the Number 11. [Source: Hooniverse] […]
