This bike is a retrofuturistic board tracker. It is a tribute to Semion Melnitsky’s grandfather Ariy Zelmanovich Shartz. He used to be a biker and a motorcycle driving instructor with the ‘Dynamo’ sport community. This bike is a new look at old school motorcycles.


The bike took 2nd place in the Freestyle class at the MotoVesna 2019 exhibition and 2nd place in the same class in the Russian Handbuilt Cup championship at the IMIS 2019 exhibition in St Petersburg.
