"If you're looking for a singular vision of motorcycle art, then, you've come to the right place step inside and have a look Enjoy your visit ! "

"Nicolas Chauvin started down the customizing road at the early age of 14. Having seen the movie, Easy Rider, he turned his attention to his 50cc motorcycle and customized it. Then he customized all of his friend’s bikes. It was obvious to everyone—including his parents—his talent needed to be shaped, and he was directed to art school. At the age of 20 he graduated from The School of Paris Art. Upon graduation, Chauvin entered the advertising agency world doing work as an airbrush illustrator. While creative, the work was not what Nicolas was drawn to, so he stepped into bike building with the passion it deserved. Working from his shop, Nicolas Chauvin Designs, in Neuilly sous Clermont, France, Chauvin has fast made a name for himself in the custom bike world. His bikes are one-of-a-kind, as he calls them, "sculpture on wheels" and very little of the bike is not designed and built by Chauvin. He has been featured in most of the major magazines around the world, participated in the Art of the Harley exhibit throughout Europe and is covered in The Art of the Chopper II by Tom Zimberoff."

"S&S 2006 WORLD BUILDER SHOWCASE - one of Nicolas's creations SATANICO PANDEMONIUM will be on S&S display at major US events:"

Resurection - another one of Nicolas´s bikes:

"Each one-of-a-kind is made with the best combination of original technique and beauty for the ultimate ride on "sculptures on wheels". In 20 years of experiment, Nicolas makes a name by himself by winning many Best of show in Europe and USA (including Best Champion Big Daddy Rat's Hole show Daytona'99) and having his work published in numerous magazines worldwide and prestigious books as "The Art of the Chopper II" (Tom Zimberoff), "The Art of the Harley" (Barbican Art Gallery) and "Bikers Variations" (Bernard de Tournadre) to name a few. His creations are exhibited in Art museum in UK London Barbican Art Gallery, Liverpool Museum and in Sweden at Kulturhuset beside Arlen Ness, Dave Perewitz, Rick Doss etc..."
