Some photos are just perfect. This one has the smile, the hair, the bike, the helmet, the mud and the boots. Love it.
This week we have roughly equal parts weird and wonderful, including a motorcycle formerly owned by Nicholas Cage and a 1 of 700 Free-way by HM Vehicles – which we only very rarely see come up for sale on eBay.
The Free-way was sold between 1979 and 1982, with the factory offering it with a 12 or 16 horsepower gasoline motor, or a 4 horsepower electric motor. Looking back on the designs now, they were clearly ahead of their time – especially with the electric drivetrain option.
This is the 7th custom motorcycle to roll off the boutique production line at the still relatively new Deus Ex Machina USA headquarters in Venice Beach, California.
Brough Superior is still considered by many to be the grandest motorcycle marque of all time, during their years of production their motorcycles sold for prices on par with the average house’s value (£130 to £180).
