About us

Created in 2013, our company is specialized in self-building Motorcycles and Vehicles prototypes.

Based in Eastern Europe, far away of all bigger poles or worldwide constructors, we decided to develop ourselves prototypes based on our passion and knowledge in mechanical design.

Starting alone by Sylvain ASSALIT with huge motivation, without budget, just ideas, our team was created step by step with ours mechanical engineers, body painters, welders, styling designers. Also, ours personal connections issued from ours past experiences in Industry Sector, complete our panel.

With our different point of view, we targeted to create something different from the mass market. Research and development on motorcycle variable frame, cars replica, re-creation or optimization from old models issued 30 or 50 years ago, give the opportunities to ours customers to drive some racing car prototypes or motorcycles modified at affordable prices. Built to procure pleasure and adrenaline sensation, ours customers don’t need to be professional drivers to feel good…

Ours projects are managed by the same way: starting from white page, based on hypothesis we create some hand design and schemas to check the technical feasibility. After come the 2D and 3D design on CAD computer, and follow the technical execution…..Tested by ourselves first, after by professional pilots and journalist-testers, we draw conclusions to improve ours models.

All of Us are speaking at least 2 languages….we can discuss in French, Spanish, English, German, Bulgarian, and if needed in Russian of course! Today, due to ours relevance and perseverance, people started to speak about us, in our region first, in the country now, and why not perhaps in the rest of world, next years….

Our company Prototypes & Special Machines is like our projects, starting from white page…
