FALCON MOTORCYCLES

ART + DESIGN + SHOP

 

Falcon Motorcycles, founded by Ian Barry and Amaryllis Knight in the DTLA Arts District, specializes in custom motorcycles with vintage heritage—utilizing original parts merged with frames and engines of post-war bikes.

 

Preferring to work on each part personally, Barry has developed a practice of designing, engineering, and machining each entire motorcycle, with the exception of the engine, carburetor, rims, and tires. Barry starts each motorcycle with a rare or iconic engine, creating an overall design. He then engineers and fabricates each part with CNC machine tools and by hand. According to the Los Angeles Times, Barry's work reflects an "ethos of extreme evolution and design", and each motorcycle is "an engineering feat as much as it's a piece of art".
