Filipacchi New York

I had a chance to stop into a new motorcycle and riding apparel store called Filipacchi a few months back, and though I was quick to Instagram the moment at the time, I just realized I never posted anything about this great new store.
Although I think they're licensed as a Ural dealer, I noticed the Cleveland CycleWerks cafe racer in the window walking around Soho in the spring rain, on the way to my friend's (and fellow Ducati enthusiast's) fintech event called Empire State Startups Conference at Webster Hall.
Filipacchi sells paintball apparel and outdoor sporting equipment, but their main focus it seems is motorcycles and riding gear, like this customized-yet-affordable cafe racer from Cleveland CycleWerks below.  This hip 500cc single comes in at around $5,000, which isn't a bad alternative to spending that much restoring a CB500 from the 1970's

The store is cool and the staff are super-helpful, so if you're wandering around Nolita near Spring St and the Bowery, go stop by:
