Tribute: A Decade of Design from The Wrenchmonkees






Building custom motorcycles sounds like a dream job, but the reality can be harsh. Builders who can actually make a living from the art are worthy of respect and admiration.
The Wrenchmonkees are celebrating a decade in business this year, which is an incredible achievement in the new wave custom scene. And the Danish twosome don?t just have staying power: their influence has been incalculable.

Per Nielsen and Nicholas Bech are nothing short of pioneers, forging a path ahead when the scene was just starting to bloom. Even if you don’t recognize their faces, you’ve seen their work?or you’ve seen traces of it in others’ work. In short, they are the godfathers of the ?alt moto? movement.
I was lucky enough to meet Per and Nicholas a couple of years ago, at the launch of the Yamaha XSR900. I sensed that their status as ?rock star? builders sits uneasily with them: they’re approachable and humble, a couple of regular guys who love what they do, and have shed blood, sweat and tears doing it.

It was in 2008?the same year that Bike EXIF was launched?that the Wrenchmonkees opened their workshop in Copenhagen. Per (above) was working at a major cargo handling company at Copenhagen’s airport; Nicholas (below) was a partner in a photography business. Both had been tinkering with supermotards and streetfighters since the late 90s, but felt it was time to up the ante. So, together with a third partner, Anders Ingvartsen (who left after a few years), they opened shop. ?We wanted to express our creativity with a more Danish design approach,? they tell us, ?instead of the German, French and UK influences that were available through magazines. It was before all the websites and cafe racer accounts we now have on Instagram and Pinterest.?

?We had a dream to build a business based on creative freedom, building bikes with our basic skills, mixing our different backgrounds into one expression, and trying to make a living out of it.?
?We started with a small basement workshop, simple tools, and no money. We hoped it?d be well accepted out there, and it was. We did dream and hope for success, but we never thought our work would bring us this far.?

?We didn’t think more than one or two years ahead at the time. So we’re grateful that today we still can go to work, and do what we love to do?most of the time.?
Any career this long is littered with peaks and valleys. For Per and Nicholas, the highs include seeing one of their earliest builds, Gorilla Punch (below), displayed at the Danish Design Museum.

Other milestones include the first orders from outside Denmark, and the collaborations: with Shun Miyazawa at Yamaha Motor Europe, with Kedo for bolt-on accessories, and with REV?IT! on the Kawasaki H2 project.
Then there was 2012 ‘Monkeetrip,’ a ten-day adventure with 12 riders piloting 25+ year-old motorcycles across 3,800 kilometers of Europe. More good times came with the launch of WM A.C (Wrenchmon...
