Timeless Motor Company New Sponsor Of Cyril Huze Blog

Is there a market for vintage motorcycle replicas? You bet. There is already a big one for cars. Especially if the reproduction is a masterpiece of authenticity offered at a very reasonable price. As you can see by the banner under this post, after 10 years of casting work, reproducing molds and special tooling, Timeless Motorcycles Company joins my Blog to internationally promote its vintage replicas. The man behind the company is Mike Hanlon a master mold maker, machinist, and an all around motorcycle enthusiast, partner with his brother Tim at MeanStreet Products where he conceived some of the best looking, worjing and most innovative front ends of these last 2 decades. Mike became fascinated with the unbelievable quality and tolerances of the castings that was taken for granted as standard practice a 100 years ago and, as result, developed a fascination for the early single cylinder motorcycles that borders on the obsessive. The result is quite possibly the most authentic vintage motorcycles ever reproduced. Some of you, like me, got a chance to pre-view and admire them last year at the Cincinnati V-Twin Expo. A lot of collectors, dealers, custom builders and true motorcycle lovers have already ordered one for their showroom or garage. It is available in the original street or in the boardtrack racing version, fully assembled with paint options, or as kits. Brass & nickel plating (in 1910 chrome was unknown) are used wherever it was used in the original bike. And guess what? They are rideable (yes, pedal starting) although they are not, for evident reasons, to be ridden on public streets. Retail prices are very reasonable, around $10/12,000 and they ship worldwide. I bet we are going to see more and more mass produced replicas. Objectively, these ones are simply superb. Timeless Motor Company.

    I have seen a number of photos on these bikes nd I have to saw they look pretty cool. I’d like to try riding one some day.

    It’s great to see an idea come to fruitation. Tim and Mike have always been great to deal with in deciding on a peticular frontend to use, or modifications that would best suit my past customers. I am SOOO GLAD to see one of the GOOD GUYS finally getting their dues, after getting beat up in this crazy market. I think it is an irresitable item for us guys who could NEVER afford an original! From the posts that are starting on this blog, I think you guys might have hit a home run!!!!!!!!

    Great looking. In this range of price i think that there is a market, even in this very bad economy. Congratulations for a job apparently very well done. Can replicas take value? Some will.

    the new improved wesite just went online! lots of great pictures and info

  15. 15 Kenny Price Jan 12th, 2009 at 2:24 pm

    what a great idea!!!

  16. 16 Brad Schwertzer Jan 12th, 2009 at 2:35 pm

    Brilliant. Killer idea to make money in this economy. Add the fact that the manufacturer has no road liability and that the buyer has a fine piece of art to look at during all his lifetime..Beware the imitators who read Cyril’s blog. Good ideas are stolen very fast, today even faster.

    A neat looking machine!

    “…Any warranty …”

    You can’t be serious..!!

    Go play Golf…….. or something.

    Would like to see a video where this bike is ridden. Understand that it’s mostly an art piece. But I have no pleasure buying, looking at it if I can’tt ride it from time to time.

  20. 20 burnout Jan 12th, 2009 at 10:14 pm

    hey Nicker, Not everyone bristles at the word “warranty” like you and I do! peace

  21. 21 Lyle Jan 13th, 2009 at 11:22 am

    It’s nice to see a start up company produce their own engine and related castings and use their own name. Bike looks like what it’s supposed to too!

  22. 22 Jeff Nicklus Jan 13th, 2009 at 5:37 pm

    Very, Very Cool!

    Over & Out,

    We already have an original 1921 Triumph H (single) and a 1917 Indian (V) and a 1910 Thor IV (single) project (needs a ground up which may not happen for years) but having a “new” but vintage design of this type would be the cat’s meow. The Triumph is running nicely but the Indian is a headache. Would absolutely love to see one of these new Harley’s show up running at one of our air fairs in Kingsbury Texas. Would be a perfect addition, the kind of bike a group or club could own and ride in parades or at car/motorcycle/or aircraft venues (would be a great airfield “hack”), etc. Not street legal but for parades and stuff most police will “let it ride”. Riding on the early type of motorcycle is a completely different affair. Doing it in period clothes doubles the ambiance.
