Billy Joels Cycle collection Oyster Bay NY

In 2010, Billy Joel opened 20th Century Cycles in Oyster Bay, Long Island, New York. Here they produce custom retro motorcycles and accessories.
20th Century Cycles is the culmination of Billy Joel’s love of motorcycles and his passion for motorcycle design. Since, in his opinion, he believes that vintage motorcycles look better and, since he also is aware that modern motorcycles tend to work better, all of the bikes in the collection have been transformed in one way or another into rideable, practical machines with a nod toward the past.
The shop, as it stands today, was born out of necessity: the need for space. As the collection grew it became apparent that in order to properly build, store and service the 75+ bikes in the collection a larger, more accommodating facility was needed. The perfect shop was found where they could do all of the things mentioned plus share the collection with the public in his hometown of Oyster Bay NY. Admission is Free. Enjoy!

Nice work Mario, something a little bit off the cuff here. I was waiting to find the pic of you and Billy jamming on stage. Nice the admission is free, helps visitors make an easy choice especially with kids. I guess these are "Restobikes", like we have our Restomods. Best of two worlds. Good looks and reliability. Sort of reminds me of..........ME!!
Okay that's my first lie in 2023. Pressure is off. Whew........[Reply to this comment]

Hi Rob, thought I'd try something different "out of the box" since we're into the new year with this post.
No you don't want me on a stage singing that's for sure! Not one of my best talents. I can clear a room quicker than anyone else!
Have a great year and see you on American Torque. Cheers! Mario[Reply to this comment]
