Walt Siegl and his handmade cafe racers ...

Hi!

Does anyone know of this amazing gentleman, Walt Siegl? An ADV member perhaps?

Nice article about him, as well as a short video.

http://selvedgeyard.com/2013/10/26/w...ma/#more-33574

In the video
I particularly like his statement that starts off with "When I ride a motorcycles it taps into senses that I don't come across in my daily life ... "

His website, with tons of his beautiful handmade cafe racers.

http://www.waltsiegl.com/

Thoughts?



Liz

Could there be anything as expensive as a free boat?

I think you should add a HP requirement too.

Thumb Walt Siegl

Yes, Liz. I know Walt. He's a fabulous bike builder. His shop is in Harrisville, NH in the old mill buildings there. He does amazing work. He showed two of his bikes at Larz Anderson in September:

I can put you guys in contact with the guy that makes that carbon fiber bodywork if there's interest. He makes some very nice parts.

Lots of orange bikes, and even a few non-orange, yet equally bad-ass. Nevermind the riders that really knew wtf they were doing. Fortunately for me, they waited up for me and kept feeding me pointers. I lost count on how many times I hit the deck. But I left only hurt, not injured. So all was well.

I forgot my camera at home. Which was just as well because I kept mashing the ram mount I setup for it into the ground. Handle bar mounts are great for street bikes. Not so much for dirty toys. So all I have is a snappie from the parking lot.

Dear lord, this all day, every day. I can't believe someone would rock that place on a 950!! That's either one helluva rider, one helluva machine, or most likely a mix of both. Wow.

What'd be the best way to get in touch with him?

Don't know that I would trust it as a replacement for a helmet for motorbikes but the idea is very cool. They have a similar idea in MotoGP where the riding suit has an airbag in it. Very cool stuff.

It is an interesting idea for sure. Wonder how stiff the collar is when it is in invisible mode. I also wonder is it a once use deal?
