If you’re a motorcycle fan, then this is the place for you. On these pages you will see motorcycles of all makes, years and models — from vintage motorcycles to modern rides. Some of them we own, and others have been traded in for another dream machine. We also offer our customers concours-quality restorations and one-of-a-kind custom classics.
Most of the classic motorcycles on our site were restored by Ziggy. He has an eye for detail, design and originality. Every machine is unique, with original parts from the smallest bolts to pistons, clutch plates, seats and sidecars. We are motorcycle enthusiasts. We ride off road. We tour with Harleys, Hondas or BMWs. We like fast: Ducati and Japanese 2-stroke machines. We like classic motorcycles — we show them, restore them, write about them, and ride them.
The “concours season” is about to begin. This year unfortunately the La Jolla Concours at the Cove will not include motorcycles. However, two of our favorites: the Concours at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, and the Quail Motorcycle Gathering in Carmel, California are coming up in May.
We recently completed the 2016 Motorcycle Cannonball Run, titled “The Race of the Century”. It was one heck of a ride — from beautiful back roads, hard work to the point of exhaustion, mishaps, accidents and injury, and friendships formed for a lifetime. Over 90 riders signed up with 100-year-old motorcycles starting the ride in Atlantic City, and 75 crossed the finish line in Carlsbad, CA. We “wrenched and wrote” about the event, and Ziggy himself rode several hundred miles on one of the 1915 Harley Davidsons, after two of our riders were sidelined.
