As you probably know, India has a hell of a lot of people. Around four times the population of America. Or about 50 times the size of Australia. That’s right, there’s about 1.2 billion Indians and only a small percentage of those people have cars. As of 2002, India had an estimated 37 million motorcycles/mopeds which made it home to the largest number of motorised two-wheelers in the world. And ever since we featured a couple of bikes from India, it seems like we have received about 36 million emails from Indians submitting their motorbikes. Of those emails, here is one that stood out. The bike was built by Umang Shankar and his team at Highland Custom Motorcycles. It’s called ‘Highland’ because Umang is from a village in the Himachal hills and is proud to be a ‘highlander’. He is also a proud member of the Royal Enfield motorcycle group called ‘Road Survivors’ – one of the oldest motorcycle clubs in India.

These stunning bikes are being hand-built in Gilroy, California by Pat Dolan who started the company out of passion for these classically styled motor bicycles. The “Sportsman Flyer Company” started not as a business, but as a hobby” he says. “I have built and collected cars and bicycles for years and have always wanted to add a Schwinn Whizzer motorized bicycle to my collection”. So while Pat was searching for the right bike, he started seeing motorized bicycles around the place with newer two stroke engines. That’s when he decided to build one and started the project with a vintage Schwinn Panther frame.

Found this cool video on the deus site. Riding a cafe racer on a salt lake is now on my list of things to do before i die! This is actually a salt lake in South Australia for all those people reading from overseas. Love the “Don’t fence me” in sound track…
