The Crimea has a distinctly steampunk feel about it emphasised by the brass highlights and old school springer front end, which was originally from a 1945 Harley Davidson WLA. In the rear you'll find a set of Ohlins Piggyback shocks which tie in with the colour scheme nicely, but seem to be out of place on what looks like more of an art piece than a daily rider. Roman assures however that the bike is in fact ridden and is a reliable commuter and if you look carefully you will also see a tiny pair of LED lights mounted in the springer front end to make sure it can be seen in traffic.
The carburettors have been "borrowed" from a Yamaha FZR and mounted using custom intakes of Roman's own design. The brakes have been upgraded to Brembos and the custom made exhaust is finished with a Supertrapp muffler thats been brushed back to match the finish on the rest of the bodywork. All of the alloy components such as the oil tank (which is actually the fuel tank), the tiny in frame tank (which houses the electrics) and the front plate are all custom made with the only stock item being the rear fender which is a modified Harley Davidson V-rod part.
