This is Goldmember, a custom-built race bike, built by Roger Goldammer who wanted to race Goldmember at the Bonneville Speedway and compete with it at the 2008 AMD World Championships. Roger calls this a “risky combination” since AWD Championship bikes are built mostly for visual display, while race bikes are “pure function.”
The bare-metal version of Goldmember was the one Roger raced at the Bonneville Salt Flats, achieving 164 mph. While he was preparing the bike for the 2008 AMD World Championship, he painted the all hand-formed aluminum bodywork in yellow to give it a retro look, and the bike won first place in the Freestyle Class.
“I do really love this bike in bare metal, the painted version looks more like plastic and you can’t see the hand shaped metal,” says the builder.
