Arch Method 143 Concept


Arch Motorcycle founders Gard Hollinger and Keanu Reeves unveiled the KRGT-1S and the Arch Method 143 concept at the EICMA 2017 show in Milan.

Arch Motorcycle Company is a boutique manufacturer, co-founded by Gard Hollinger and Keanu Reeves, that produces bespoke, custom-production motorcycles in their state-of-the-art, Los Angeles area factory.  ARCH CNC machined in-house over 200 unique parts out of billet aluminium, which have been used  to compose the KRGT-1, their first model of production. Designer and Builder Gard Hollinger supervises an expert staff of skilled craftsmen who assemble each unit by hand to meet the ergonomic and aesthetic preferences of the client.

Arch Motorcycle has recently partnered with Suter Industries to create the European distribution channel Arch Europe to handle distribution and sales for all Arch Motorcycle models across Europe.

“We’re very excited to have presented two motorcycles that represent our vision for the future of Arch Motorcycle,” said Arch Motorcycle co-founders Keanu Reeves and Gard Hollinger.  “This also marks our commitment to having our motorcycle being Euro 4 compliant, and by creating the European distribution channel Arch Europe with our partner Suter Industries, we look forward to continuing to grow the brand in Europe after EICMA 2017.”

The Arch Method 143 concept is a blend of carbon fiber, machined aluminum, and leather which is absolutely stunning. Limited to production of only 23 motorcycles, Arch is calling this a “concept production bike,” probably because styling like this is only ever seen on concepts. A proprietary S&S 143ci engine (2,343cc) is housed in an entirely carbon-fiber MonoCell chassis. Developed as part of a new partnership with Suter Industries, the swingarm is single-sided and CNC machined with a carbon-fiber cover. SC Project - the same company that makes the exhaust for Marc Marquez’s MotoGP bike - has developed a full titanium and carbon-fiber exhaust system. The carbon-fiber wheels from BST were designed by Arch and are unique to this bike.
