Concept Motorcycles

These radical concepts look like they could have been created by maverick designer Phillipe Starck. In reality they are the brain child of young english designer Paul Van Denton. After completing a masters in vehicle design from the Royal College of Art in London he now works for industrial designer Ron Arad. But Paul’s true love is designing motorcycles – a lot of the time in his lunch hour. Paul says he is “unsatisfied with bike designs at the moment” and wants to build nostalgic rides with a futuristic twist. The pictured café racers below may not be very practical with their extreme riding positions but we love their simplicity (although not a huge fan of hubless wheels). Paul is also planning to build a full scale mock-up of one of his bike designs in the near future. Will keep you posted and have the pics when it happens. For now you can check out more concepts on Paul’s blog.

    They are the best looking concepts I’ve seen in ages. I’m in the middle of customizing a BMW R80/7 in London. When I’m done I need a new project and would be really happy to help Paul make a mock-up of one of them. Have a look my Facebook page untitled motorcycles to see the BMW half way done. Thanks Adam

    Fresh. You never know… we might all know his name one day.

    Very cool. Would love to see Honda or Yamaha give a guy like this a million bucks and see what he comes up with.
