“Good parts for bad people.” It’s not a logo you’re likely to see at the state tourism board, but for local motorcycle designers James and David Kaye (aka. Detroit Bros.) it sums up their view of Detroit’s identity.
Stars of the Discovery Channel’s Biker Build Off, the Kaye brothers have turned their love of the Motor City into design inspiration, creating motorcycles that marry precision engineering with a distinctly industrial post-apocalyptic aesthetic.
The result is hard-edged, kickass bike designs that toe the line between sculpture and machine.
