The Electric Revolution at the Petersen Museum

Last night I had the chance to attend the “Electric Revolution”, an electric motorcycles exhibit at The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, CA. curated by Paul D’Orleans from The Vintagen blog, who also previously curated the customs revolution there too.

Electric or not, to me is great to see these “pieces of art” at their rightful place, a top notch museum, as long as they get to be ridden after! But anyway, it was also great to be a witness of pioneering history in the making with all these interesting innovative efforts.

This event was extra especial as I got to see Pagnol creative rider and friend Walt Siegl’s and Mike Mayberry’s (Can you say, Ronin Motorcycles!? :) collaboration debut with an Alta motorcycles bike as a base, which came out stunning!

But before all this, helping my friend Gareth Manx on Wednesday, director for the Oil in The Blood film, to get the Debolex Engineering Energica custom bike out of USA customs to bringing it to the museum, was such a pleasure to see in person, touch, load and unload such a beautiful bike, heavy, but amazing looking!

The event it self was great as well, not often do we get to be at fancy, in a good way, events for motorcycles! And of course, the Petersen’s auto exhibits and Art Center of Design section are a must see as well if you are even in LA!

Enjoy and TY!
