Saxon Motorcycles Europe says it has obtained the European Type approval, making all of their bikes road legal and allowing them to be licensed by dealers in the European Union (EU) and Switzerland.
Saxon said no other production custom motorcycle company has received such a rating throughout the EU.
Saxon Motorcycles Europe, founded in January 2006 by Frank Vermeulen and Rinke Andringa of the Netherlands, was created specifically to provide the European market with custom, American-style motorcycles.
“Obtaining European Type approval is a huge accomplishment for Saxon,” said David Schwam, vice president of sales and marketing for Saxon Motorcycle Co. USA.
The approval has been granted for two European models, the Warlord, a U.S. high-neck chopper, and the Firestorm, a long and low prostreet.
