Sure, you can go to your local cycle shop and buy yourself a ride — but if you're looking for something truly unique, you'd do better picking up this DP Customs Mele Motorcycle ($19,000). Built by hand, this one-of-a-kind whip sports a 1000cc Ironhead motor producing 75 hp — quite a lot considering its minuscule curb weight — as well as a stretched frame, clip-on handlebars, a custom x-pipe exhaust, powdercoated wheels wrapped in Pirelli rubber, a three-piece rear wing, and an Uncrate-approved bright orange paint job.
It might look like a rendering — in fact, it probably is — but given the founders' bike-racing backgrounds, we have no doubt it will become reality soon enough. The BRD RedShift MX ($15,000) is an electric bike that's designed for MX2/Lites-class racing, yet still manages to be street legal. Features include 40 maximum hp, 12-inch fully adjustable front and rear suspension, a 21-inch front wheel and 19-inch rear, and a top speed of 80 mph.
No, it's not for sale, but this Moto-Mucci Honda CX500 Motorcycle ($TBA) was simply too cool not to share anyway. Based on a 1978 Honda CX500 Standard, this daily urban rider has been completely restored and rebuilt with a new exhaust, a custom seat, new tires, and gobs of new paint, and has survived both the rebuild process and being run over by a Mercedes SUV, which makes us think it'll be able to tackle the streets of Chicago just fine.
