I love the steampunk genre, mixing Victorian, Industrial and Science Fiction is just a winning combination, kind of like space cowboys, but that’s a different topic all together.
In my musings on the web, I found this: A steampunk pocket watch
And these: Airship Mechanic boots
Now, I’m the type of guy who would wear these things on a daily basis… Add some properly dark blue jeans, rolled over at the cuffs, a Schott NYC jacket, some aviator sunglasses, and thin leather riding gloves and I would feel like a total badass, dressed to kill! Straight out of something like SkyCaptain and the world of Tomorrow. Oh, I can dream! That’s close to $600 worth of stuff! Ugh, I’m such dweeb.
But then it got me thinking. I have seen steampunk motorcycles before…
But I would never ever ride something that impractical, dangerous or hideous. I do however LOVE riding, so what kind of bike would best fit this outfit? A cruiser? A street fighter? A café or flat-tracker style moto?
For some reason a slightly embellished BMW R1200C Montauk comes to mind.
If you think there is a better type of bike for this look, or have some cool Steampunk motos to share, please send them here.
