Foundry Moto: Barrio Speedwagon II


Love 'em or hate 'em, the guys at Foundry Moto can build a sweet motorcycle. Chris, Robbie and the crew invited us to their shop last month for some beer and BBQ, and during the fun we shot this nuts '66 gennie Shovel. Ladies and gentlemen, this is Barrio Speedwagon…

Wild ride! The rake is a bit much for my taste, and I don't understand the appeal of not having a front brake. However, my old lady wouldn't complain about that sissysbar/backrest!

Looks like a labor intensive project. Good stuff!

Commented on 2-26-2010 At 05:58 pm

Very trendy.

Cool name.
I wonder if they stole from the guy who had a bike with that name in the Horse 5 years ago like I did or if thats the same bike.

That was an IronHead that we had built that was featured in The Horse... The Shovel is Actually Barrio Speedwagon II

Foundry built a really rad ironhead a couple of years ago that
had paint very similar to this shovel. I was riding behind the lil ironhead on the way to SOW & every car that passed had heads turning to get
a looksee at that eye popping paint job.

I usually don't like coffin tanks, but this one looks AMAZING!!! Great job. Great paint. I really like the gold leaf outline. A cool, clean touch. Nice.

Commented on 2-26-2010 At 10:13 pm

cleaner looking front wheel w/out brake.adds the dangerous appeal.

Commented on 2-26-2010 At 10:15 pm

hell yeah this thing it dialed right in! i love it, over the top but still ride able.

Commented on 2-27-2010 At 11:16 pm

Nailed it, right out of the 70's.
The best part of this bike is that so many people hate them...even though their shit is flawless. Chopper posers hate...I love these guys.

Commented on 2-28-2010 At 11:07 pm

this thing is outrageous.

Commented on 3-1-2010 At 04:05 pm

Very nice, nails the 70s vibe for sure.

Commented on 3-2-2010 At 12:34 am

A great '70s specimen! King seat, psychodelic tank paint and big front fork!

Commented on 3-3-2010 At 12:09 am
