The perfect bike for getting around New Orleans (and its epic potholes). Also happens to be perfect for crossing the Himalayas.

The Simplex Servi-Cycle was manufactured right here in New Orleans from 1935 until 1960. Strikingly simple design and 100 mpg performance. We love it as much as Mardi Gras.

1974 Moto Guzzi Eldorado Custom
We have a soft spot for Moto Guzzi at Poet Motors, especially the old Ambassadors and Eldorados. This Eldorado is a great example of why.
