Tinker Hatfield x See See Custom Zero auctioned Bonhams
This stunning Tinker Hatfield x See See Zero SR / F custom electric motorcycle was sold this week at Bonhams’ Modern Design | Art auction on Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles. Usually motorcycles are auctioned by Bonhams during specific vehicle events. However, this custom bike found its way into an art auction, and it’s not hard to see why.
Thor Drake from See See Motorcycles and A motorcycle show fame worked with legendary shoe designer Tinker Hatfield to create Tinker Hatfield x See See custom. You may be familiar with Hatfield’s work: he designed Air Max and Air Jordan shoes.
Hatfield designed the motorcycle, including the striking battery hood. The carbon fiber front fender contrasts nicely with the teal rims and golden Öhlins fork sliders. The ends of the gold bars are a nice touch.
Drake took care of the technical aspects of the Zero SR / F. Premium components such as Öhlins suspension, Brembo brakes and Rizoma turn signals adorn the bike.
The spectacular seat is based on artwork by Drat Diestler, owner and artist of Always true tattoo in Old Town Portland, Oregon. The original illustration of Diestler behind the seat was included with the motorcycle. “I like to tattoo all types of subjects and styles, from geometric, black, floral and traditional tattoo like Japanese and American tattoo,” says Diestler.
Whoever won the auction had a sensational art theft. The Zero SR / F in premium trim has an MSRP of $ 21,495. The incredible Tinker Hatfield x See See build, complete with premium accessories and ready to ride, sold for just $ 20,312. It’s a shame, because the bike was sold as a charity piece.
While you may think that a motorcycle auction is a great place to get a bid on a motorcycle you’re interested in – and often is – keep an eye out for a bike sold in a non-traditional setting such as the modern design of Bonhams. | Auction of works of art. It’s mind boggling that the Tinker Hatfield x See See Custom Zero SR / F sold for less than a showroom version.
