A warehouse of vintage bikes in Brooklyn
Even a man with no intention of buying a motorcycle can’t help but admire a vintage motorcycle.
McQueen. Brando. Any man who has ever put his dog in goggles in a sidecar. God bless you, every one.
In Brooklyn, there is a broker of this particular brand of badass. His name is Angus Dykman, and he is the proprietor of Northeast Sportscar, a sprawling showroom filled with all manner of nostalgic wheelery for sale.
Dykman grew up on this stuff: grandpa was a Kentucky dirtbike guy, dad raced cars.
Started spitting rocks with his own motorcycle at the age of seven.
And he’s got the goods: from a 1959 Matchless G3/L originally developed for the British Military in WWII to a 1964 Triumph Bonneville that’ll be familiar to any fan of Vanishing Point (though for our two pennies Gilda Texter riding a Honda Scrambler in the buff took the cake in that flick).
Like we said, bikes you’d dig perusing even if there’s no two-wheelin’ in your future.
We made you a gallery of some of Dykman’s best available wares; have a look.
Should you be into checking them out in person, he’d be happy to have ya’. He’s even got a bar.
Just don’t ride one off the lot if you go that route.
