Classified Moto vs. CNN

Dailies -



When our buddy John Ryland from Richmond, Virginia’s Classified Moto lost his day job in advertising recently, he decided to devote himself full-time to his low-key custom bikes. Looks like that choice is paying off, CNN featured John last night.

Congrats, John and thanks for the tip, Emmet.

    Another narrow angle V-twin naked/cafe/sport bike custom? This time from a totally affordable Japanese donor bike? Stop the torture! I would like to go to my local dealer and buy something like this but for some reason no one makes them.

    Judging from the sketchy tooling and methods, may I strongly suggest safety glasses for both our hero and his wife?

  • tomwito

    That’s awesome, and familiar Im in the process of building a bike along these lines and losing my job too.
