The Strange Story Of The Traub Motorcycle

The Strange Story Of The Traub Motorcycle This one-of-a-kind hand-built motorcycle was way ahead of its time, then seemingly time traveled 50 years into the future. Every bike has a unique story behind it, from a highly modified custom job to the most common Harley-Davidson Street Glide. The story of the Traub is more than 100 years long, for half of which it was bricked up and forgotten about in a Chicago building. We wrote about this back in 2014. YouTuber Yammie Noob recently did a little more research on the Traub and discovered some more interesting pieces of the story—some of which contradict what we originally thought.

After Suitcase Cycle was shuttered, Captain Shapiro went on to start a few other companies producing things like ram-air intercoolers and custom control surfaces for piston-powered aircraft. Shapiro died in 2001 at the ripe old age of 82, leaving behind a legacy of cool little custom bikes and

You all are familiar with the term "General Aviation", right? It's basically a catch-all term that encompasses all the civil, non-commercial, private transport air traffic here in the United States. All those little single and twin-engine Pipers and Cessnas you see down at your county or municipal airport? Those are general aviation planes. They're privately-owned aircraft used for recreation and running errands (if you will), not for carrying cargoes or paying passengers.

Cycleweird: Honda's Crazy Trunk-Sized Motocompo Ever wanted a bike you could fit in your trunk? Honda had you covered back in the 1980's. What on earth happened back in the 1980's? It's been said the past is a different country, an idea the big four certainly set out to prove, with bikes with unorthodox designs and styling like the HondaCX650 Turbo, the SuzukiKatana, and the BMWK1. However, one of the craziest bikes from this era has to be the Honda Motocompo and City Turbo II car combination.

Two years after their “An Awesome Wave” debut, English indie rock band Alt-J return with “This Is All Yours,” a strange , perplexing, but often beautiful and engaging release that draws on elements of folk, pop, rock and electronica, sometimes within the same song.

General aviation has been 'A Thing in the US' basically since the Wright boys flung their wood and canvass flying death trap off a dune in North Carolina back in 1903. While people enjoyed flying private aircraft all throughout the first half of the 20th century, it wasn't until the 60s that general aviation really took off. In the post-war boom, your average American could get his pilot's license and rent or buy a share of a Cessna for basically pocket change. This meant that you had a lot more people out there flying themselves to vacation or just down the coast for a hundred-dollar cheeseburger (shout out to Howard's Pub in Ocracoke).

“At peak manufacturing, our Suitcase Cycle production models included the Suzuki 100cc, 125cc and the freeway legal 185cc model," Jeff Shapiro, Larry's son and Suitcae Cycle employee told Check Six. "Honda models included the CT90, CL100, and SL125 models. We even had a customer that asked us to convert his Yamaha 360cc model and another customer with a Honda 175cc model. Both successfully converted and fit into their aircraft.”

Custom Motorcycles Of The 2019 Handbuilt Motorcycle Show

Custom Motorcycles Of The 2019 Handbuilt Motorcycle Show Our favorite builds from Revival Cycles’ Austin, Texas, custom show Now in its sixth year, the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show has cemented its place as one of the most influential custom shows in the US. What started as an extension of Portland’s The One Motorcycle Show has grown into a beast entirely its own and uniquely encapsulates its home city of Austin, Texas. At the center of the show is one shop, Revival Cycles, not only pushing its show to be the best it can be, but also bringing wild and beautiful custom models built in its Texas workshop.

There is the list of top 10 wonders of the world which are the masterpiece of the skill and handwork of the people of that era. Today we become astonished to see these wonders, that in so remote ages without any modern technology and machine, how so great construction were made.

Over the course of four years, Suitcase Cycle cranked out about 1,000 completed bikes and conversion kits. Sadly, production ended in 1974 after increasingly stringent product liability laws and interference from Honda and Suzuki put the kibosh on Suitcase Cycle sales.

“This was a time when everyone began being sued for anything and everything," Shapiro said. "Plus, some of our suppliers were told by Honda and Suzuki not to sell motorcycles to us. They still did but I believe they suffered consequences from the big boys.”

After Suitcase Cycle was shuttered, Captain Shapiro went on to start a few other companies producing things like ram-air intercoolers and custom control surfaces for piston-powered aircraft. Shapiro died in 2001 at the ripe old age of 82, leaving behind a legacy of cool little custom bikes and top-notch aeronautic engineering.

Today, a complete Honda-based Suitcase Cycle complete with its rolling storage tray commands top dollar from pilots and weird bike enthusiasts. The CT90-based machines are the biggest collector items, but even the lesser models and Suzukis will cost you a couple grand. If you have a Suitcase Cycle, tell us about it or, better yet, bring it by HQ so we can check it out!
