What more can you have? Iconic Design (Isetta bubble car), classic engineering and technology (look at that engine, aerofoil….) and what a glorious mix of aesthetics (from the vibrancy of the orange colour through to the mix of exposed components at the rear).
I love this. Wouldn’t be too good for the supermarket run though…..or would it?
Few machines are as ripe for customization as motorcycles. They’re pure mechanical simplicity. Two wheels, an engine, a transmission, some brakes and handlebars, and endless possibilities. Go to any motorcycle race and walk through the parking lot. You won’t find two bikes that are exactly alike. If dogs are a facsimile of their owners, motorcycles are their two-wheeled equivalent.
Nobody understands this better than Chris Hunter, author of a new book book: The Ride.
Chris was asked by ‘Wired’ to list the 10 best custom machines to come out in 2013, and this is what he came up with. Enjoy.
