'26 Indian Prince

Indian Prince was not around for long, with a production run of only 4 years for the American Indian Motorcycle Company original survivors are few and far between.
The slogan used to market the Indian Prince was ‘You can learn to ride it in 5 minutes’!
The 1926 Indian Prince featured a 3 speed transmission, common for this time. Marketed to first time motorcyclists the 1926 Indian Prince features a lightweight frame, low seat and lengthened handlebars. Grinder style forks and a compressed coil provided nominal suspension travel.
This 1926 Indian Prince has been beautifully captured by photographer Nick Keating. DOWNLOAD it here – 1926 Indian Prince

Grooving Phantom

A spectacular casting of a reclining nude woman, finished in highly polished chrome, adorning the hood of a 1948 Lincoln Continental with a deep black paint finish. Gorgeous. From the driver's seat, you see the figures smooth backside as she lazily watches the world roll by from her reclined pose. by =tundra-timmy

Kamome Sprinter H-D

built by Charlie Stockwell of Warr’s Harley-Davidson, London
Synonymous with luxurious craftsmanship and one-off design, The Evisu x Warr’s Harley-Davidson Motorbike, aptly named the Kamome Sprinter, showcases a darkened harmonic combination of past vintage styles with modern functionality and celebrates the creativity and hand-made practices for which both brands are famous.
Every detail of this bike offers more than meets the eye. Look closely into the hand engraved engine covers and you will see Japanese inspired art. Nishikigoi Koi, scales, crashing waves and dragons are just some of what can be found on first glance of the beautifully and probably painstakingly hand engraved work of a local gunsmith in London. Look closer and you see more of the Evisu influence in symbols and characters used by the denim brand throughout their 20 year existence.
