It's based on a Honda Supersport with a 125cc engine. But you'd be hard-pressed to tell by looking at it. Inspired by Jet Age futurism, the Bandit9 Ava Motorcycle is a chrome-clad ride that's sure to be a highlight of any collection. It's built entirely by hand, with a high-grade steel unibody and faring, unique dual rear shocks, a sand casted swing arm, and a calf leather seat. Other highlights include the naked speedometer, custom handlebars with turn signals at the ends, and the low-hanging exhaust. Limited to only 9 units, with free door-to-door shipping so it's as shiny when it arrives as it was when it left the shop.
A collaboration two years in the making, the Ducati Scrambler Italia Independent takes the Italian bike manufacturer's '70s-inspired bike and adds a touch of fashion-focused cafe racer flair. Unique features include a black engine with brushed head fins, a black exhaust with a Termignoni silencer, lower handlebars with variable sections and aluminum rear mirrors sprouting from the ends, and a matte black paint job applied using a brushing process similar to that of the unique copper color that defines the front mudguard, nose fairing, frame, and wheels. Limited to only 1,077 individually-numbered units.
Plain looks, famous owner. Steve McQueen's 1963 Triumph Bonneville Motorcycle is an exciting piece of motoring history, and not just because of the star who rode it. Bud Ekins, a friend of and stunt double for McQueen and a well-known motorcycle racer himself, modified the bike for off-road racing. He added a number of specialized parts before handing it off to their buddy Kenny Howard — better known as Von Dutch — to be given a plain paint job, since Dutch's trademark pinstriping was likely to be worn away by sand and dirt while riding. It's this rich history that gives the bike its character, and makes it a covetable prize for memorabilia and motorcycle enthusiasts alike.
