Metalmorphosis Offering replica and original parts for British old timer motorcycles
Restoring a hundred years old motorcycle is a great challenge. You have to solve technical problems without having the needed parts. By obtaining the missing and ruined parts you can create an operating and valuable vehicle. If you have experienced the beauty of this process you will be addicted to it forever!
We created the website Metalmorphosis in order to help those who work on motorcycle restoring projects by offering some replica and original parts.
Production and Development
Daniel Baltigh. I am interested in technical solutions and repairs since my childhood. My father introduced me to old motorcycles and to workshop activities and I instantly became passionate about them. As I grew older I dwelled deeper into this direction: I studied mechanical engineering in the Technical University of Budapest. I got more and more involved in motorcycles. I liked old British motorcycles the best, so I bought a Velocette, starting my career with old-timer vehicles. During the restoring process, I experienced that some parts were unobtainable. I met a nearby engineer who was able to produce many parts, actually a complete motorcycle on his own.
His work had a great impact on me and I started to study the technologies and to produce the parts on my own. I also found many partners to assist me with the problems I was unable to solve alone in my workshop. This hobby had grown to a fulltime job by 2012.
Communication and Sale
In 2020 my wife and I decided to take a further step and created the Metalmorphosis homepage to present my work in international circles as well.
We run our company together utilizing our special competencies: my wife deals with customer requests using her communication and logistic skills, so that I can work fully devoted to the workshop.
