Chris Valle's Harley Davidson Commercial!!!

How Riding A Motorcycle Is Like Flying

How Riding A Motorcycle Is Like Flying:

Allison Turbine Jet Bike


This thing is, well, brutish.
It’s a completely custom-built Allison turbine powered jet cruiser.
Featuring hand-crafted bodywork, carbon fiber wheels, six-piston ceramic brakes, fully programmable computer fuel management and instrumentation and extensive use of billet aluminum, it’s only logged 21 hours of riding time since new.
Perhaps most interesting to those of use who have a craven need for speed, it boasts a staggering power-to-weight ratio of 317 bhp  against a slight 582 pounds total weight. I believe, and I’m no expert on such things, it means this machine would move out at speeds approaching the horrific…
Christian Travert, builder of The Daytona Boss seen above,  has a motorcycle-building background which speaks for itself. The engineering genius and bike builder extraordinaire – based in Florida – is the man responsible for the engineering and building of the outrageous 250mph ‘Y2K’ jet turbine-powered bike. That bike is still regarded as the fastest, street legal, production motorcycle in the world, so he’s been there and done that before.
Travert  also built this, the “Daytona Boss”, and it’s also powered by a jet engine. The bike was commissioned by the owner of the world’s largest Harley Davidson dealership, owner Bruce Rossmeyer. Something struck Christian about the futuristic design and he found himself beginning to apply his engineering know-how to some of the problems posed by the design.

Kamome Sprinter H-D

Kamome Sprinter H-D:
built by Charlie Stockwell of Warr’s Harley-Davidson, London
Synonymous with luxurious craftsmanship and one-off design, The Evisu x Warr’s Harley-Davidson Motorbike, aptly named the Kamome Sprinter, showcases a darkened harmonic combination of past vintage styles with modern functionality and celebrates the creativity and hand-made practices for which both brands are famous.

Every detail of this bike offers more than meets the eye. Look closely into the hand engraved engine covers and you will see Japanese inspired art. Nishikigoi Koi, scales, crashing waves and dragons are just some of what can be found on first glance of the beautifully and probably painstakingly hand engraved work of a local gunsmith in London. Look closer and you see more of the Evisu influence in symbols and characters used by the denim brand throughout their 20 year existence.

Copper Mike's 'Steampunk' bike

Copper Mike's 'Steampunk' bike:
Copper Mike’s latest build, Steampunk, made it’s East Coast Bike Show debut during the International Motorcycle Show at the Jacob Javits Center. Copper Mike’s build left the record crowd in awe of the creativity, fabrication, and execution that went into his latest creation. The Ultimate Builder 2012 show brought in the highest number of entries in show history, but Steampunk emerged as the best that NYC had to offer! Check out the other incredible bikes and some images of Steampunk at GRAVESEND CHOPPERS.
