Falcon Motorcycles

Anybody seen these before? These are too cool, in an odd sort of way.
Great looking bikes, awesome website. Basically cafe racer gone commercial.

They look like bobbers to me. I think the bikes look cool, but I hate their web design. Flash was the single greatest and single worst thing to ever happen to the internet at the same time.

Ditto. Definitely head turners. I'd ride one for the experience, but I don't think I'd buy one.

Yeah, after digging through the site, it definitely has some goofiness. Like impossible to get out of pages.

The first page has the cardinal sin of "mystery meat navigation". You don't know what to click until you hover over a graphic, and you don't know to do that unless, like me, you accidentally mouse over the picture while trying to figure out what to click.

I've always liked bobber's and Falcon's are good looking examples of them. I didn't look to see what they cost, but I bet it's more than I'd want to pay for it. Of course, if I really wanted one, it'd probably be worth it.

oRiginal and imaginative

Incredible attention to detail, goes way further than most people dare to go with vintage English builds, I'd personally ride the hell out of one of those things and be happy to pay what it took to get a bike as one-off and killer as that Bullet. Website is classy and cool. " The first page has the cardinal sin of mystery meat navigation"... ? ! Since when did bikers live in a world filled with rules!

Website is a PITA. I had to shut down to get rid of it.

Simple: I guess a little thought/ intelligence is a prerequisite.

Maybe bikers don't, but web designers do.

... obviously not those ones! A prerequisite for getting to enjoy something a little different for a change....
