F3 In Shanghai, Featured on Bikernet.com

March 24th, 2015

Where does inspiration come from? It’s all around us. What encourages someone to push the boundries of what is the norm? I continually look for those opportunities.

A few years ago, a very special customer walked into my life who had a vision of a bike that did not fit the norm. I still remember him describing to me his vision for his bike.

He wanted something all aluminum with simple elegant lines, similar to the Porsche Speedster that James Dean drove. He also wanted a touch of Art Deco represented in the bike. I remember telling him, “to do this properly, we’ll need to machine the tanks and fenders”… and to my amazement he said, “well let’s do it then.”

Together we shot ideas back and forth. The creative brainstorming was invigorating with the possibilities of creating a truly unique and timeless bike.

Limited Edition F3 Rocketeer : 15 Numbered Examples

February 27th, 2015

Get to know our Limited Edition F3 Rocketeer. Only 15 numbered examples will ever be made.

This bike is inspired by our AMD World Champion winning bike. Each example is numbered and pays tribute to our world champion bike.

Make no mistake, this bike is made to be ridden, and ridden hard. It’s not only beautiful, it’s a highly precise, high quality riding machine.

The jewel of the bike are the “tins”. The tank & fender are machined to a sculpture from solid blocks of aircraft grade billet aluminum. LED brake lights are incorporated into the rear fender.

The power train features an S&S Shovelhead motor, a Rivera 6 speed transmission, a Baker 2.4″ synchronous primary drive and a hand crafted stainless performance exhaust.

The front brakes are Beringer Hub Brakes made for small aircraft but fashioned to work with our motorcycle. The rear brake is a 3Guyz sprotor.

The headlight is our machined billet aluminum LED JW speaker light.

Hand controls are ISR and they are amazing.

The exquisite seat is crafted by the insanely talented Hix Design.

Several examples have already been sold and are more are in our production schedule. Don’t miss your chance to own something truly unique & exquisite. An exceptional bike for exceptional people. Contact us today to reserve yours. evolve@DarwinMotorcycles.com

Fuel Injected 69 Chopper!

February 11th, 2015

Presenting our very first fuel injected 69 Chopper. What’s cool about this is… it’s all hidden. The challenge was to create a fuel injected bike and hide all the additional wiring as well as the ECU box. That is no easy task… and I’m not going to tell you how we did it. But rest assured, it’s very cool (and classified). This bike is headed to our dealer in Shanghai, China. In addition to the fuel injection system, there are some other cool new features on this bike, such the ISR hydraulic hand controls with integrated fluid window. There is a separate center brake LED as well as low dim running red rear lights that blink amber for turn signal indicators. There’s even a steering neck lock (that was no fun). All in all, the months of prototyping have resulted in what you see here. We think our customer will be very happy with the performance. We know he loves how it looks. To see about having a bespoke bike built for you, check out our bikes page and custom configure your bike.

This Amazing Bike Is For Sale!

February 10th, 2015

If you’ve wanted one of our bikes and you wanted a smoking great deal, this is the bike for you!

This Brass Balls Cycle is for sale. And it’s the deal of a lifetime!
It’s a 2012 Digger with only 314 miles, mostly of which we put on it when we took it to Sturgis for a Travel Channel TV feature.
It was delivered new to it’s owner in September 2013.
Some of the significant upgrades are:
111″ S&S motor, 6 speed Rivera transmission, Reverse meg exhaust
Softail suspension with Suspension Technologies shocks.
Upgraded Wilwood / Brass Balls Brakes
Custom signature Brass Balls Cycles wheels
Custom mini hand controls / switches
Custom one of a kind paint
It is the most incredible air brush paint work I’ve ever seen. People swear the art pieces are actual photos decals… but they are not. It’s really paint/art.
Why only 314 miles on it you might ask? Unfortunately the owner is a military serviceman with a back injury and has not been able to ride the bike. It has been garage stored on a trickle charger since delivery.
If we were to build this bike new today, retail cost would be approximately $37,438 USD. We are selling it in the low $20K’s
It is an awesome bike… which is just like new. Serious inquiries only email:evolve@DarwinMotorcycles.com
