One source of  unexpected inspiration that kept popping up all around the city were the amazing motorcycles seen on and around the streets. The city streets were amazing for a cycle head like myself. It felt like I was stopping every couple of streets to take in the styling of some sort of classic motorcycle. Great vintage/vintage inspired bikes are always a great source of style inspiration and it was great to see some bikes that I had never come across.

Triumph Thruxton

Honda CB 500

JCrew/Belstaff

J.Crew seems to keep adding to their growing number of Belstaff items by the day. The other day, the jacket that truly caught my eye was the Belstaff S. Icon Racing Jacket. It seems to be a play by play replica of the exact jacket that Steve Mcqueen use to race in back in the day. Notice in the two pictures they both have a slanted left chest pocket and the American Flag over the left pocket. This is one heck of a jacket. Extremely durable and waterproof, this jacket is strong enough for the roughest offroad experience.  Check it out here.

While my dad was visiting Sweeny, Texas last weekend he happend to come across another great find. Norton started manufacturing motorcycles in 1902 in the United Kingdom. Norton use to be a very strong presence in the United States and stands by BSA(Birmingham Small Arms) as one of the great British motorcycles. Anyways my dad saw one of these great Norton Cammados, but was not able to capture a photo. This amazing 1974 Norton Commando 850 will have to due.

Overall great movie but this post is really not about that. This movie was filled with great old motorcycles as well as styling. The two motorcycles featured in the movie were an amazing Indian and the classic Triumph. Also Belstaff, the great British Clothing Company who also outfitted the likes of Steve Mcqueen, provided all the great leather jackets in the movie, as well as in the picture below.

At the end of the movie though, you will find one of my favorite movie quotes of all time.

“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”

So the other day I was talking about classic motorcycles, and today I ran across an awesome BMW. Now for those who do not know BMW started making motorcycles about five years before they started making automobiles. Several of there old motorcycle designs are considered classics, and for all the right reasons. In the future I will be highlighting many of these classic BMW  Bikes. Til then check this beast out!

There is not a day that passes by that I don’t look at classic motorcycles online! I grew up riding dirt bikes with my dad, and looking at the motorcycles he grew up riding. I already have the exact bike picked out (1970s Hondad CB) and can not stop thinking about riding free on the open roads in California. But ones of these old Triumphs that are pictured here would not be bad either.Picture 465

The beautiful Betsy in the picture above is riding a late sixties early seventies Triumph Bonneville.

The other pretty Betsy is riding a Honda CB750, about the same year as the Triumph.

Classic

Steve Mcqueen CB

Come on! This man created today’s classics by wearing what the hell he wanted to. Desert boots, kakhi pants, barracuta jacket and to finish it off a nasty Honda CB Super Hawk.
