Freddie "Krugger" Bertrand joined the exclusive club of multiple title-winning world champions when he took top honours in the 2014 World Championship of Custom Bike Building with his BMW K1600-engined masterpiece called Nurb's.Krugger, who is a regular competitor at the AMD World Championship, beat 69 other builders from 22 countries to once again lift the coveted Freestyle class trophy. This is the second championship win for Belgian Krugger, who took his first title at the 2010 championship in Sturgis, USA. His victory makes him the only person other than Canadian three-time World Champion Roger Goldammer to win the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building more than once.After an initial approach from BMW to work on a collaborative project, Krugger then received a customer commission to build a bike and the two projects became one in the form of the Art Deco-inspired Nurb's, which not only uses the BMW straight-six motor but also retains all of the stock bike's electronics, including the fuel injection and ABS.This year's World Championship was the first to be held at the INTERMOT expo in Cologne, Germany, a bi-annual trade/public event which regularly draws over 200,000 visitors.
