When it comes to art, it doesn’t matter what niche the talent comes from – creativity is a flexible thing, so it’s no surprise to see inventions that work well on cross-collaborations.

At wBW, we’ve seen many of these projects flow through the pipeline. We have covered tattoo artist collaborations with custom shops to create one-of-a-kind bikes with a forward-thinking vibe, we wrote about motorcycles that have actually been tattooed (yes, with the tattoo gun) on the bodywork, forming a unique pattern to match the limbs, digits and trunks of the motorcycle masses…

But what about a bicycle cobbled together by a shoe designer and a coffee shop bartender?

Jalopnik states that legendary Nike designer Tinker Hatfield (inspired by Michael Jordan himself) met Thor Drake, the owner of the See See Motor Coffee company. Once the Oregon-based pair hit it off, they both decided they couldn’t pass up a collaboration on a motorcycle, given the other’s desire to create unique designs. with impressive elements designed to stand out and grab attention.

So they did just that.
