A few months back, I came across an article on one of Richard Pollock’s street trackers. The particular bike in question was a Yamaha XS650 powered special, with a Buell front fork, custom pieces throughout and it just looked right, everything was where it was supposed to be without any excess hardware anywhere. Digging a little deeper, I found Richard had previously been featured in one of Cycle World’s American Flyer roundups with a Triumph street tracker so I thought it might be worth looking a little closer.
Richard has a company by the name of Mule Motorcycles, building custom street trackers with Harley Davidson, Yamaha and Triumph power plus a lot of custom design work added to the mix. He’s been around motorcycles for many years working at a variety of motorcycle shops and currently he’s doing high dollar fabrication work for the aerospace industry. Mule Motorcycles allows him to build his idea of what a custom street tracker should look like combining his interpretation with the ideas a customer brings along.
When I first looked at his site, he didn’t have much on display. You would hardly know what kind of work he did but it looks like he finally revamped the whole thing and now you can see the full range of his work. If you like the street tracker style of motorcycle like I do, it would be well worth your time to stop by and see what he’s done and some of the projects currently under way. There still isn’t much information about any of the individual bikes on his site but I’m guessing that is coming along the way. Nice bikes.
