Julian is a studied engineer and an exceptionally gifted metal craftsman. With his abilities and skills he is able to transfer his ideas and visions into reality without any compromise. He forms metals, develops parts and invests a lot of money to build a bike with a perfect high-end-finish. Often those bikes feature pricey details, which an ordinary person would not take any notice off and a professional bike builder only recognizes those after a detailed examination.

BROUGHAM is the newest creation from OWM. As a base for the new bike a 2001 Softail Deuce with only 900km on the speedometer was bought from Harley Davidson Saarbrücken. So basicly in new condition. The manager of HD Saarbrücken complimented Julian on the purchase of the Harley Davidson Softail Deuce, since it was in a downright original condition. But Julian had his own plans for this bike.

First Julian deconstructed the bike and cleaned the frame and the swingarm. The second step was to modify the engine, the trany and the oil tank. While rummaging through his storage Julian found an old DKW tank from the 30’s which matched his concept perfectly. So this tank was completely remodeled to match the softail frame.

He bent a tunnel, inched a refueling connector, assembled an old hood ornament and crafted a tank holder which he welded with the basis tank. Whereas the seat was ordered in the US. The matching base frame was handcrafted by Julian himself out of a metal plate.

The rear fender is an aftermarket part which was totally revised, too, handcrafted brackets were added. The rims are from the HD Smooth-Series in 21“and 19“ – added with Firestone Vintage-Wheels. The front fork, originally from a HD Dyna, was very much modified.

The lamp mask was formed by Julian matching the overall design of metal and the lamp grill was cnc-machined after Julian’s own ideas. The handlebar is a brand new product from ONE WAY MACHINE. It can also be ordered right now in chrome or black. Both the instruments and the front brakes are from Beringer. The rotor-brake is a product from SSC. The airfilter and the Ignitioncover were shipped from Mooneyes, US. The exhaust pipes however is completely built by Julian.

Naming this bike Julian went back in time. BROUGHAM is devoted to a special kind of car – a Cadillac Eldorado Brougham from 1958. In 1993 Julian took his first trip with his father to the US and visited an old friend of his father. In his Hot Rod garage he had one of these rare and unique Eldorado Broughams. This vehicle is a true design art in automotive history. It is a 4-Door-Coupe´with suicide doors and with one of the first air suspension system. This special car was previously owned by the famous Clark Gable.
