In this documentary, “The Making of a Legend by DP Custom Cycle & Local Motors”, we will see the first crowd-sourced custom motorcycle. The Racer was designed by Local Motors‘ community member André Costa of Portugal, and created in partnership with DP Customs.
They partnered in an online Motorcycle Design Challenge. 106 participants from 25 countries proposed sketches and renderings for a Sportster to be build later by DP Custom Cycles. Andre Costa from Portugal won the design challenge with a motorcycle inspired by the Brabham BT44 with a Martini Racing livery. Making sure to be faithful to Costa’s concept, DP’s Jarrod and Justin Del Prado went to work in their small shop of New River, AZ and just completed the Sportster “Racer” featured here.
