RK Thing Custom Bike Is Truly Scary

Rafik Kaisi is his name, and striking, custom bike are his game. And he means business. RK Concepts is not your everyday custom motorcycles shop, and if we think again this manufacturer has almost nothing to do with anything in the casual custom world.

Why does Rafik build such strange, and almost outrageous bikes? Because he likes doing that and because he can. These answers suffice, and his creations really stand from the crowd. In fact we were tempted to believe that his satisfaction grows as the watchers' unrest grows, too, as the RK Concepts bikes are anything but the “wow, look, a nice bike!”-type.

The Thing looks really otherwordly: a frame which inspired fear and respect simultaneously, with the organic, almost alive-looking fuel tank doubling as a windshield, a huge front wheel with adjustable suspension, and.. wait!

Steering damper and steel cable for front end suspension on a trike? That's so uncommon it's not even funny, but still Rafik assures you that the bike is very rideable, especially with the adjustable front end height. Leaf spring chain tensioner and a 1000cc Aprilia power unit take thie RK Thing further into the realm of fantasy.

Rafik Kaisi himself declares he build bike for a terribly narrow niche: motorcycles for the movie industry. It may be indeed a very tight one, but we must admit that the RK Concepts bikes are going to be an unexpected feature even in the wackiest movies. Nicely played, Rafik!
