Why a Gullwing?

For our designer, Quique Berna, the most beautiful car in the history of motoring is the Mercedes “Gullwings”, no offense to anyone.

In the midst of the 2020 pandemic, it occurred to us to do something that we had not done so far, a motorcycle designed by us without criteria or opinions of the client. Something that would satisfy us and that people could order “in series”, the opposite of what we sell.

Quique gets down to work and designs a motorcycle inspired by the most proclaimed Mercedes car of the 50’s. Mercedes brought out this car in 9 different versions, therefore, we would make 9 identical motorcycles in different colors.

New challenges to be solved

Motorcycle design

The inspiration is already clear, the Mercedes car. As we always say, one of the most artisanal and beautiful things about our work is that when we face a bike, we face new problems to solve. On this bike, Quique set out to create the first monoshock we had ever made, plus he wanted it to lift hydraulically with a key just like the doors on the Mercedes Gullwing.

Some acquaintances of the Cafe Racer world made an explanatory video, with an interview with us about the design work of this bike.

Gullwing and Gullwing X

The different versions

When you carry out a project of these characteristics, the budget is important with respect to the components. For this reason we have two versions, one called Gullwing and another more powerful one called Gullwing X.

The main difference between the two bikes is the radiator in the chassis, the Kineo rims, a carburetor and a custom made front fairing. This difference seems small but it is a noticeable difference between the two bikes.

Available colors

4 of 9 motorcycles sold

There are 5 bikes left to make from the different color combinations that were available, we have sold 4 in one year. Many people fill in the form to make a Gullwing, but they really want to make changes to the bike. This bike has a closed design, it can not be changed, so some of the people who fill in the budget end up making another Tamarit bike and not a Gullwing.

The colors that are available are the following:
