Most of you guys know Kevin Ludwig.
This was one of his cycles he built and rode.
He recently sold it to our friend Whitney. Now she rocks it…. and rocks it quite well I must say.
Long story short, she works for Urban. There’s a handful of ladies who work there that ride, whom we’re friends with.
Somehow, through whatever means it was, they wanted to use the cycle in an ad, which is going to be outside their new store in the Rock Center on a 13′ billboard starting Jan.
Pretty rad. Chick on the bike is a fox. Dig the boots.
Check out more of the photographers work. ‘Anthony Nocella’.

If you’re currently at work and not all that excited to be there then I wouldn’t suggest reading further… I recently heard from Philly resident, Josh Laskin, who earlier this summer quit his job and started a cross country adventure on his BMW motorcycle. I think we’ve all thought about what Josh had the balls […]
Kev, you should be in this with her on the back! I’m in Thailand right now, and might not make it back in time to get my bike to the garage (or ever) but if the offer is still there, someone will be riding it in within the next 2 weeks. Holler back via e-mail, and keep that shit sexy my brother!!
P.S.: CHEERS TO AL THE HOMIES ON HERE!
I really called it when I said cafe racers would be the new fixed gear as far as “hip” transportation trends are concerned. Cool bike though.
I’m pumped on this Kevin. I’m down to ride up to NYC with you when this billboard goes up.
Thanks to Whitney for making it happen! I hope she enjoys the bike as much as I did – it’s a blast. It’ll be in front of the new Free People store in NYC (division of Urban Outfitters). I hope she chimes in at some point and mentions the photographer’s name and maybe a site so we can post a link to it for credit.
Todd, working on bicycles and motorcycles are two different things. With fixed gears, you can stay on top of things and still have enough time for beers, dance parties, cool sweaters, etc. Customizing your own motorcycle is a whole different ball game – the time, effort and cash put out doesn’t leave much room for anything else lifestyle wise. Unless you have deep pockets.
That said, I don’t entirely disagree with you – I just disagree that it’s cafe bikes that are getting popular. I’d say joe schmo hipster off the street doesn’t care what you are riding, as long as it’s a motorcycle you’ll be lumped in. But if that happens I say more power to it – rather see my friends with sexy ladies on the back (and my ladies with handsome boys…) then old men.
oh awesome! didn’t see the link above ed, i didn’t even know who he was!
I’m super stoked to see the huge barricade in person, the shot ended up looking amazing! It should be up any day now and will be up until the end of March. My favorite part was at the end of the day my pup and I got to hang out in the studio and get a few shots on the bike – thanks Anthony!
sweet… when I’m back home in NYC I’ll have to swing by and snap a picture of the picture! Thats pretty rad.
That’s awesome. If you guys come up, let me know. Always got a place to stay.
Im super excited about the barricades as well. The largest my personal work has ever been displayed! Ill let everyone know when it goes up….if its not already 🙂
