Ahhh – the classics. They’re hard to beat, yes? In architecture they have the Doric column, in music you have Beethoven and in philosophy there’s Socrates. When it comes to cuisine you have Duck a l’Orange, In art we have Michelangelo, and with languages you have Latin. But what do we have in the world of custom bikes? As much as I’d like to think that Caesar would spend most Sundays causing trouble in the back streets of Rome on board a very, very early version of a bevel Ducati, I’m almost certain that it never actually happened. So where does that leave us? I’ll tell you where. With the humble yet beautiful bobbed ’60s Triumph hardtail. It’s a Venus de Milo made from chrome, oil, and rubber I tell you. And right at this very moment, I can think of no more perfect example of this art form than this classic ’68 example made by Danish artisan Daniel Peter Dyrberg. Enjoy.
