Ralph Randolph from Knockout Motorcycles and Lorenzo Lamas had a previous collaboration before Lorenzo Cycles partnered with Eddie Trotta. They join again to create 2 new performance models, the Patriot – a chopper with ape hangers – and the Reno Rocket whose lines are inspired by those of a board tracker. So, why Lorenzo would join again former US Marine, former club member, father, offspring of multiple Rodeo Hall Of Famers, US Airways captain and Custom Builder Ralph Randolph? Simply because new economic realities show that not many can afford Eddie Trotta’s 70K custom works of art even with a celebrity name on it. Lorenzo Cycles reasoning is that there are still market opportunities in the relatively untapped market segment between the average Joe “bolt-on part” customs and the high end custom motorcycles.
The signature Lorenzo Cycles Patriot model is described by Lorenzo and Ralph as a no nonsense stance and setup custom, This model will be associated with a major event hosted in Nashville in June 2011 where Lorenzo and Ralph will lead 1000 riders from Ft. Campbell to Nashville in honor of the 101st Airborne and all the men and women around the world standing in harm’s way to protect our freedoms. The 2nd new production bike, the Reno Rocket board tracker, is designed to make a statement and is also sensibly priced at half the price of the Lorenzo Cycles Icon and the Lorenzo Cycles Badlander produced with Eddie Trotta. On another note, Lorenzo Cycles entered into an agreement with Oakley to launch a new line of biker sunglasses for men and women to be unveiled later this week.
