One Shot: Brandon Semenuk's unReal Segment


First and foremost, The Bullitt is a motorcycle blog. Having said that, we motorcyclists share a fundamental common bond with all two-wheel enthusiasts. Sure, while rocking spandex covered in fake sponsor logos and pedaling down PCH on a $10k road bike might not be your thing, but there's no doubt a form of cycling to suit nearly every taste. And cyclist or not, if after watching the video below, you aren't blown away I feel bad for you son!

2 Stroke Attack by Roland Sands Design


Roland Sands is no stranger to Born-Free, the annual Vintage Chopper and Classic Cycle Show in Southern California, and certainly knows his way around a a vintage chopper. Surely he could build a custom chopper with some RSD flair that would appease the masses...but that's not Roland. This year, when Sands got the invite to be a Born-Free builder, he went a totally different route. What could he bring to a vintage chopper fest that would stir the pot? How about a crazy-cool two stroke race bike?

Jose Gallina x Noise Cycles


Jose Gallina is an up-and-coming photographer in the motorcycle scene who caught our eye a few years back. We've seen a bunch of his work over the years but there is one shoot we keep coming back to and that's his shoot of Noise Cycle's Custom 1952 Harley Panhead. This completely custom Panhead won 'Best in Show' at Born Free 5, which is arguably the biggest custom bike show in the US these days. No question the bike itself is great, but the drama Jose was able to create with his photos bring it to another level.

For sale :: Bullitt OG Custom Triumph cafe racer



The day has finally come, The Bullitt OG is on Marin Speed Shop's showroom floor and is looking for a new forever home. This was a bike that we figured we'd never let go of, but we just have too many builds in the works to hang on to it any longer. Gotta make room in the garage and let this amazing bike find a new home.

How to ride bitch: A video explanation


Have you ever broken down and had to hitch a ride on a buddy’s bike? There’s definitely an awkward moment for first time for male-on-male motorcycle rides, where the passenger has to figure it all out on the fly; where to place your hands, where to look, etc. Thankfully film maker Alex Vivian has created a throwback poke at 1960’s instructional videos to walk you through the process. As Vivian states, the video harkens back to, “a time where things were just a little nit macho and lot more ridiculous”. Watch the video below. You never know when this information might come in handy!

Custom Norton Commando by Federal Moto


The Norton Commando is a classic British motorcycle that has enjoyed worldwide popularity for nearly half a decade. Like Triumph's Bonneville, the Commando is a popular favorite for a cafe racer and the like. There are no shortages of custom Bonnies and Commandos, but few have caught our eye like the clean 1974 Norton Commando 850 you see here. Built by Canadian crew Federal Moto, this little number is simple and elegant with a hint of hooligan thrown in.
