Jason Lee and Hughe Laurie are some of the celebrities who’ve praised Derringer Cycles for their quality gasoline-powered bikes, but many appreciate their high attention to detail. Derringer’s Bespoke Collection designed by Adrian Van Anz are a highly limited collection of handbuilt 2-wheelers that capture the simplicity and barebones style of 1920s board tracking racing motorcycles. No two Derringer Bespoke cycles are the same as each one features unique components chosen by the owner and customized to their exact preferences — with refined details such as hammered copper rivets, hand-made Brooks leather saddles, white tires (manufactured without the use of carbon black) and 250 different colors to choose from (some so rich they require 8 layers of paint). The bikes feature a 1.8-gallon fuel tank and can be pedaled like normal bicycles or powered by a moto-hybrid drivetrain that gives these fuel-efficient motorcycles a range of 180 miles per gallon. Also, the bikes meet the stringent CARB tier 3 emissions standards, which means you’ll not only look good riding these bikes around but you’ll do so knowing you’re not crapping on the environment at the same time. They may take between 4-6 weeks to be completed but rest assured they’ll meet your heart’s desire. This, of course, is a good thing since each one costs upwards of $1920 (most likely a nod to the decade these bikes have been inspired from).
