We’ve started a new album on our Facebook page called, "from the archives", where we’ll be sharing never-released photos from the Bandit9 garage. And to start, here’s a baby photo of Nero.
After 3 long months of radio silence from us, we’re back, and excited to give you a glimpse of Hephaestus. We’ll be releasing more uber juicy images of the bike real soon.
Be patient. We’re almost there.
I’m high-fiving myself right now. I love delivering good news.
I’m happy to announce that Bandit9 was featured in this month’s GQ France. I think the French edition is one of the cooler ones so it’s a huge win for us here. Obama’s on the cover so we must be doing something right.
A special thank you to Kelian Henry for sharing this with us.
I’ll try and have this translated for you soon.
please forgive us for our recent radio silence. we’ve been incredibly busy juggling a number of projects.
a lot of you have emailed us about Nero’s price and availability. i’d like to make one thing clear: we do not repeat designs. when we say “one-of-a-kind bike,” we mean that in the most literal sense because we believe in originality and we believe we can do better than the last. Basically, no clones. And we always look forward, not backward.
regarding Nero’s price. we haven’t pinned a price tag on our latest baby but we’ll be sure to do that as soon as we have a moment.
we’re very close on releasing a couple of new machines. we’re doing the finishing touches on them now and we’ll be shooting these bad boys soon enough with the same gloss as the bikes themselves.
you’ll hear from us soon. that’s a promise.
We’ve been very fortunate with all the recent press. Megadeluxe has just published an extensive interview with me, which is a huge honor. There are some really wonderful interviews with people from all sorts of disciplines. I probably spent a good hour (during work) just reading.
These guys only pick the cream of the crop including custom motorcycle stars such as Shinya Kimura, Dustin Kott and Scott T. form the Tarantulas. When they first approached me about the article, I wasn’t exactly comfortable being on the same page as those guys. It’s like “Daryl who? Bandit what?” But this was too large of an opportunity to pass.
A big shout out to Wes Garcia from Megadeluxe. It was an incredible pleasure to work with you and I hope you’ll have us back on your site soon. Atlas is coming.
