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 […]
The Cucciolo Matto shoot will go down as one of my favorite shoots with Analog to date. There have been some good ones, like the ’49 Indian I wrote about last time, but as far as picture quality, refinement, and pure location-bliss this shoot takes the cake. If you are like me, you are a […]
We’re at it again for our 3rd annual Analog open house. We’re saying goodbye to the summer show season by opening the doors to the shop where the magic happens. Be sure to drop by if you’re in the area. We’ll have…. Analog parts swap meet Slow race Falling prices and of end of season […]
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 […]
Meet the latest from Analog Motorcycle’s custom vision. The Dirty Twin. The Dirty Twin started life as a brand new 2017 Triumph Street Twin. We are very familiar with the platform – one of our shop bikes is a 2016 model we have been tinkering with over the last year. That includes developing a […]
Going to Milwaukee is like visiting family. Since we are based just south of the Wisconsin border, the state’s biggest city is home to many Analog fans. The show gives us a chance to get out of the shop after a long winter of building and test out new products, displays, and builds that […]

Originally contacted by a client for a build based on the XS650 platform (after seeing the Analog Agnessa build), the client […]
Motoblot 2016 Another year and another rousing success at Motoblot 2016, the annual custom motorcycle and hot rod show located in the heart of the West Town neighborhood in our hometown, Chicago. Despite the looming threat of rain and temperatures rising well into the 90’s (with a fair share of humidity), people turned out in droves […]
Click the banner above to RSVP for our Open-House, Whiskey/Grade Pop-up shop, Motorcycle Show, and hangout. June 3rd from 5p-10p. Our last open house gathered a ton of people and that was in the middle of winter during a thunderstorm. Make sure you RSVP to reserve your spot.
As is customary with our new builds, we have to get out and test them before the customer picks up the bike. This abandoned warehouse lot behind our shop seemed to fit the job nicely.
If there is a more Instagram-worthy ride happening in custom motorcycle scene out there today I am not aware of it.
