European Classic Motorcycle touring holidays

THE CRANKCASE. is a small company based in the Taunus area of Germany, 40km north west of Frankfurt, Germany.
Our aim is to use and enjoy our motorcycles with similarly enthusiastic motorcyclists on the fabulously varied roads of central Europe, especially to visit events and places offering unique experiences.

We organise classic European motorcycling holidays and tours in Germany with a special touch.
The unique feature of our tours are the bikes that we can offer you, such as the rare classic Ducatis and Bimotas in our collection.
To make sure that your Classic Motorcycle touring holiday is really something never to forget, we plan all activities along the route so that the stops are just as interesting as the riding.
We also offer exclusive tours, where you stay in luxury 4 star hotels and dine in selected restaurants to make your vacation even more perfect.
Of course we are happy to organise your Classic Motorcycle touring holiday for you even if you bring your own bike and only have time for a weekend or the week days inbetween.
Come back to our website soon – we add irregular updates on the events, tours and bikes.
best biking wishes
