Check out Gotham Ducati, NYC's first and only official Desmo Owners Club

International Motorcycle Show NYC 2014 | Classics and Customs

There were a number of other customized and classic motorcycles at the motorcycle show.

 I loved the paint job on this Harley.
 Half cartoon hurricane, half acid-trip, this was my favorite paint job of any bike at the show.
 This bratty BMW R90 was a little bit of custom class.
 Cyber punk bobber with huge tires.

Indian Motorcycles exhibited a bunch of cool bikes, including this "Track Chief (above)."
 The Indian Scout is another classic American motorcycle.
 The Indian "Thunder Stroke 111," measured in cubic inches rather than CC's. I think this comes to about 1800cc's or so...
 Crazy paint on a  tricked out custom Hayabusa and a Honda CBR1000RR.
 This was a beautiful window into the past glory of racing success with Triumph's Gary Nixon Tribute Bike.
 This absurd KTM SuperDuke was rendered useless by it's silly paint job.
 I didn't really know too much about Motus,  but here is there MST R, their entry into the touring market.
Motus modded racecar. 
This was a cool 1977 Bultaco Sherpa T Special

 1949 Velocette KTT Special
Gotta love these old Honda Dreams.
 Kawasaki GS and Z1, both from the early 1970's.
Red Bull Factory Yamaha MotoGP bike.
Either Jorge Lorenzo's or Valentino Rossi's Movistar Yamaha MotoGP bike.
Honda had a pretty cool exhibit, with each major iteration of the Goldwing series since the mid-1970's on display at the show.
