You know I love choppers (actually most bikes) and hot rods, well here are a few more blogs & websites for you to check out.
Vintage motorcycles, sport & racing motorcycles and custom motorcycles. In addition to a ton of photos of great bikes, they have good writing. Check out the history of Harley-Davidson . It’s a great & detailed article and includes links to Harley racing sites and restoration sites. Nice!
“The site also contains reference links to vintage British, Italian, and American parts suppliers, restorers, vintage motorcycle collectors, owner’s clubs, after-market manufacturers, vintage bike shows, auctions, reference books, and historical motorcycle websites.”
This is a 1913 Excelsior motorcycle from The World Of Motorcycles.
Darwin partners with some world-class companies to build their Brass Balls Bobbers & Choppers. You can find them on Twitter @brassballcycles.
Bike EXIF describes their site: “This site offers a dose of the coolest motorcycles, several days a week. That means custom motorcycles, classic motorcycles, cafe racers, racing motorcycles and style icons. I’m passionate about design, photography and classic motorcycles, and Bike EXIF is a way to combine all three—and connect with other people who share the same interests.”
I really like this site and I follow them on Twitter @BikeEXIF. They offer daily updates by e-mail (sign up on their site) and they have a Facbook page. Very connected! And they love Moto-Guzzi‘s. Check this one out.
These folks build custom bikes & trikes and have a full-service shop in Florida.
This is their 1st Place 3 Wheeler from a Rat’s Hole event in 2008.
A & R was founded in 2008 and has quickly become a leading voice covering news of the motorcycle industry including the business end of designing and building motorcycles. They are becoming deeply involved in the budding electric motorcycle industry. It is predicted that within 20 years the majority of bikes being built will be electric. What a shocking change that will be.
Interested in the future of electric motorcycles? One place to check out is Brammo They are on Twitter @BrammoSays and @BrammoForum I’m a motor head but they have some great looking bikes with surprisingly good specs.
I’m not a huge MotoGP fan but these Ducati’s are sweet.
Vinnie always made me laugh when he was working at OCC and he is a master technician and mechanic. He was instrumental, along with Rick Petko, in building those great custom theme bikes. Cody joined OCC at like the age of 16 and they treated him like the youngest son including giving him a nice bike that Cody & Paul Senior designed and built (Note: I was wrong. Cody is now suing OCC & Paul Sr for a number of reasons including the fact that he never was physically given the bike he built. Sr “gave” the kid the bike on the TV show but apprently took it back or changed his mind or just never followed thru??? Hard to tell with Sr, but Cody didn’t get the bike so he is now suing as of February 2012) plus sending him to motorcycle mechanics school and taking him down to Daytona for Bike Week when he was still a teen. What a ride for a kid.
Vinnie and Cody also build bikes under their own brand, V-Force Customs. You often see Vinnie now wearing V-Force hats on the American Chopper show.
This is their V-Force Deuce. Sweet bike.
