We create high end collectables.
Vintage Motor Brands is the fulfilment of a dream shared by four dedicated, classic motorcycle enthusiasts, who decided that they wanted to offer collectors the ability to acquire highly detailed 1:6 scale replicas of some of the world’s most iconic machines.
Not that many years ago, some of these classic motorcycles might have been affordable by the man in the street, but demand has now hugely outstripped supply, putting many of these bikes beyond the reach of the average enthusiast. It’s a situation that has been made worse by the fact that many such machines have been salted away in private collections as financial investments, often never to turn a wheel again.
For those who have found the prospect of owning the bikes of their dreams less and less likely, we hope that a collectible replica from Vintage Motor Brands will fill a hole in their lives.
All of the models we are going to produce will be based on concours and original full size bikes that we have painstakingly measured with great precision, and photographed from just about every conceivable angle.
There have been classic bike replicas in the past, but we are determined to ensure that ours are the best quality, the most accurate, and the most faithful that the collector market has ever seen.
All the models we produce will be limited to between 500 and 1000 pieces worldwide, making them truly rare and collectible.
And, of course, modelled in the much larger scale of 1:6, they are going to be more imposing and impressive than most of those that have gone before.
1959 Triumph Bonneville T120r ‘The Tangerine Dream’
Named after the Bonneville salt flats in America where Triumph was a known record breaker. Launched in America for its consumer market the Bonneville failed to sell in the beginning. Only later did it gain a major cult following and now a days big money gets bid for a Bonneville. Models in the more rare colour Tangerine are wanted the most because of their rareness.
Last month the Vintage Motor Brands team went to Dallas, Texas to scope out potential new projects and partnerships.
During our visit to Dallas we discovered the Strokers Dallas. The world`s most infamous chopper shop run by the legendary master bike builder Rick Fearless.
Rick received us all the way from The Netherlands with hospitality and friendliness that made us feel like we had been fast friends for years.
We were shown around the shop and had a look at some of the most amazing custom bikes we had ever seen. This included a Tribute bike to the amazing Janis Joplin.
Rick Fearless showed great interest in the scale models that Vintage Motor Brands produces and he invited us to talk about possible projects.
If you have any spare time whilst in Dallas check out the Strokers Dallas and look at the amazing bikes in the shop afterwards go grab a cold beer and a bite next door at the Ice House.
We would like to thank Rick Fearless himself and the ladies at the shop for showing us around and making us feel at home.
National Motorcycle Museum
Last month also saw the Vintage Motor Brands team travel to Anamosa, Iowa to visit the National Motorcycle Museum to make photographs of a motorcycle for a to be revealed project.
The museum made a great impression on us and so did its amazing staff. We had contact with the museum before going there and explained who we are and what we do. They offered us any help and materials we needed and they even showed an interest in our scale models.
As a thank you we donated two models to the museum for their mission to display motorcycle history.
We would like to thank the entire museum staff and especially Mrs. Carol Vermillion for the help and friendliness.
If you ever happen to find yourself near the National Motorcycle Museum then go and check out their collection and be amazed!
Haas Moto Museum & Sculpture Gallery
Traveling to Dallas, Texas last month had two free day between meetings and looking for new projects. On one of these days the Vintage Motor Brands team found the Haas Moto Museum & Sculpture Gallery.
This Museum had just opened its door and we where the first international visitors admitted to the museum. This museum owned by Mister Haas a man whose family roots trace back to The Netherlands is filled with unique machines.
What impressed most of us was the expertise that the museum staff has about each and every motorcycle in the museum. Whenever you have spare time left in Dallas check this museum out.
I would especialy encourage people to take the time and stroll through the impressive section of motorcycles with side-cars.
We would like to thank Mister Haas and his staff for the tour of the museum and for recieving these Dutchies with hearthwarming friendlyness.
We produce a variety of products related to the Motor industry.
