Mama Tried… 2018

DSC_4462

Mama Tried… and she succeeded.  This year’s show was by any measure a rave success.  Flat Out Friday wasn’t as action packed as years passed, but it is still undeniably cool.  Every year since its introduction I’ve been able to get a press pass for entry into the middle of the track.  It’s a daunting […]

3rd Annual Open House

10-22-open-house-0009b

We were on our way back home from Barber Vintage Fest last fall – Tony, Bibu, and I discussing motorcycles, the killer week we had in Alabama, and Bibu’s disgust for anything with sauce on it – when we realized we had forgotten something – to plan our annual open house.  With only one potential […]

Every hobbyist group needs an outlet.  For Chicago motorcyclists, that’s Motoblot.  It’s our chance to fly the moto freak flag. Old and new Triumphs, vintage Japanese bikes, some neglected Austrian cousins, and of course a sampling of American iron in the form of Indian and Harley are the most popular makes.  The street fest style […]

XS650 ‘Reloaded’ – The Latest from Analog

XS650 Reloaded from Analog Motorcycles

A redo, a rebuild, a re-envisioning, the XS650 Reloaded… It’s quite hard to imagine our builder and owner Tony Prust leaving anything just ‘good enough’ on any machine that rolls through our shop.  The story of this custom began when we found an older Loaded Gun Customs build at a local auction.  Having known owner […]

2016 Mama Tried Show

DSC_2048-cover

I’m not sure what makes a great motorcycle show exactly.  Is it the bikes?  The people?  The scenery?  The beer? The 2016 Mama Tried Show had a pretty good sampling of all of the above.  Set in a new location for this year, and supposedly booked at the same location for the next 2 years as […]

New Build: The BMW R nineT/6

DSC_1773

This BMW is special.  The build started with the idea to build something that was completely designed and constructed for the purpose of executing Analog’s own design.  No customers involved, just Tony and the idea of this bike stewing in his head.  We are calling it the R nineT/6. The tank is silver painted on top, and clear-coated […]
