Fort Lauderdale might be the head-turning capital of the world with the most exotic yachts and cars for everyday eye candy. But, to see this head-turning motorcycle, you’ll have to go to Texas. This one-of-a-kind two-wheeled masterpiece only cost $115,000.
Welcome to a world of custom re-engineered Motorcycles created by Revival Cycles in Austin, Texas. The Revival team builds composite motorcycles by rebuilding vintage bikes: dirt bikes, cafe racers, and fast-track rockets. All arresting to look at and thrilling to ride.
Pictured is their entry level 140 that started out as the 2012 Confederate X132 Hellcat. The team kept the original engine, frame, and suspension then hand-formed the new brushed alloy belly pan, tank, and tail section. Build time is about 650 hours. $115,000 is not a bad price for a masterpiece.
If you follow motorcycles, you’ll know there are other hand-built cycle builders. The Hellcat is a product of Confederate Motorcycles and is currently available from workandcycle.com for $45,000.
Aside from their visionary hand-build, what makes Revival Cycles unique is they don’t just bolt parts together they engineer new parts. Currently, they have ten patents pending.
Revival Cycles started in 2008 by Alan Stulberg, a former salesman, and Stefan Hertel, a medical device mechanical engineer. Today, they occupy multiple fabrication shops and employ a full-time team of 19. Revival turns out six built-from-the-ground-up motorcycles a year. Their design process allows for client input though most defer to the genius of the Revival Cycles team.
If you’re a cycle lover visiting Austin, Texas, it’s worth a trip to the Revival Cycles shop and showroom. They also have several Revival motorcycles shows a year. Who knows, maybe we’ll see a Revival Cycle in Fort Lauderdale soon.
