A motorcycle is a hallmark of American masculinity. As horses were replaced by passenger cars, real men stuck to motorbikes. Dangerous, reckless, motorcycles are every mother’s worst nightmare. I grew up loving cruisers, while Scott prefers sport bikes, but regardless of which kind of motorcycle you favor, the consensus reached is the same: they’re cool.
Enter Falcon Motorcycles, a Los Angeles based outfit producing beautiful and unique two-wheeled machines. Each bike is completely custom, the styling and engines based on vintage British motorcycles from the 1950s or earlier. They received a great deal of attention after their Bullet motorcycle won a series of awards. That bike, commissioned by actor and Rum Cake favorite Jason Lee, was sold as the first in a limited edition series of 10 custom bikes. The bikes are manufactured in downtown Los Angeles by founders Ian Barry and Amaryllis Knight.
