SCRAM AFRICA 2013
If you get here it is surely because you are one of those who believe that the bikes of today don’t have the soul of the motorcycles of yesterday and you are sure that it’s possible to enjoy and live adventures as others did 30 or 40 years ago.
At Fuel Bespoke Motorcycles we think that the best way to realize old times and experiences is to create “Scram Africa®”, a trip of more than 2.000 km for classic trail and neoclassic bikes to the south of Morocco by road, trail and dune. A unique adventure; a trip only for nostalgic riders!
The “Scram Africa®” is conceived and designed for classic trails and neoclassical motorcycles such as the Triumph Scrambler, BMW GS80/GS100/GS100PD , Royal Enfield, Ural, street tracker and customized scramblers bikes and a few others. In short, “heavy” & classics on-off road bikes.
