Brough Superior SS100 PendineBuiltwell Shop, a new clothing store for men, is offering a $250,000 Brough Superior motorcycle for sale via its website.
The recently launched Builtwell site has an interesting section it calls the Specialty Shop, which is a subject-specific collection of curated -or carefully selected- items in very limited quantities. The subject of the Specialty Shop will change every two months but this first iteration is focused on motorcycling.It is here that, in addition to items such as handmade American tanker boots (from the original design by General George Patton) created specifically for Builtwell and a carbon fiber and lambskin helmet from French firm Les Ateliers Ruby, the Brough Superior takes center stage.The Brough Superior SS1000 Pendine, called the “Retro” to distinguish it from its 1930s record-setting ancestor, is a new motorcycle hand built in Europe to modern specifications but in vintage form.Builtwell has been reserved the exclusive opportunity to sell this machine by the official Brough Superior Motor Cycle Ltd. company, which means that the new owner will not be placed on the long waiting list (currently until 2013) and, after personal consultation, since all Brough Superiors are custom built, will receive his bespoke motorcycle in about six months (as opposed to a year).To find out more, click here.
Our first segment introduces you to the new Arch 1s. This latest, slightly more sporting American V-twin, adds to the original KRGT1 coming from the boutique manufacturer based in Hawthorne, Southern California. Senior Editor Nic de Sena rode through Malibu with Gard Hollinger, who co-founded Arch Motorcycle with his friend, Keanu Reeves. The 1s is a unique ride for sure, and Nic explains what makes the bike really stand out.
For the entertaining story behind Arch Motorcycle from Gard Hollinger himself, you must listen to his podcast episode on Motos & Friends HERE

In our second segment, Associate Editor Teejay Adams chats with multiple Emmy award-winning writer, Producer, Director, and actor, Thom Beers. the former Chairman & CEO of Fremantle Media North America, responsible for American Idol and America’s Got Talent.
Thom’s fertile imagination led to most of the really big reality TV shows such as ‘Deadliest Catch’ (now in its 17th season!), and many others. Of course for us in the motorcycle world, you’ll be interested to hear the genesis and story of how he started the first real fabrication reality show ‘Monster Garage’, that showcased Jesse James, and then how that led to ‘Biker Build Off’ and the ‘Zombie Choppers’ movie.
You’d imagine that most of Thom’s time is spent sitting behind a desk and on his phone. Not so. His intense stories of capturing much of the content for these shows make for some hair-raising listening.
