We recently had the pleasure of being invited to the opening reception of Retro Moto, a display of custom bikes hosted at Ultra Super New Gallery in Harajuku. The event was a collaboration between Speedtractor, Animal Boat and M&M Motorcycles, all three awesome designers with their own unique take on what a bike should be.
None of us at Ice Block could tell a gear from a piston, but that has no bearing on bikes this gorgeous. Each one seems to carry the DNA of its creator, making it look and feel completely singular in the world. As the press-kit breathlessly enthuses, it's "a lust-worthy curated selection of hand-crafted motorcycles". Can't say it was 'lust' I was feeling, at least not in the literal sense. But, the bikes are wicked.
