Derringer Cycles

with 2 comments

Okay, this has nothing to do with fashion photography, but it’s really cool!  As some of you may know, when I was younger I raced bicycles professionally and am still an enthusiast of all things on two wheels.  That is why I love these Derringer Cycles.

They are retro styled motorcycle / bicycle hybrids, basically mopeds that don’t require a motorcyle license to operate and get 105 miles to the gallon!

I first noticed them in front of a small shop while driving down 3rd Street in Los Angeles.  So I was excited to see them mentioned in the Trend Land Blog yesterday.  It’s a perfect moment to make something like this popular now that even downtown hipsters are obsessed with riding their fixed gear bicycles everywhere.

By the way, my birthday is coming up on March 31st…. hint, hint! 🙂

  1. You should check out imperial cycles they design and build similar bikes with a more custom and street feel. They also build there own frames and have a gas tank made for them. Plus it is almost half the cost.

    Check them out at – http://www.imperialcycles.blogspot.com
