Arch KRGT-1: Keanu Reeves builds his first motorcycle


Keanu Reeves talks about the Arch KRGT-1...

Hollywood movie star, Keanu Reeves is also a motorcyclist. He does own a vintage Volvo and some brand-new Porsche but otherwise mostly gets around on a bike. He started with a Kawasaki 600 enduro and has, since then, owned a Suzuki GS1100E, Suzuki GSX-R750, a 1974 BMW 750, Kawasaki KZ900, a 1984 Harley-Davidson Shovelhead, and a Moto Guzzi among others. And now, the actor has teamed up with Gard Hollinger, a self-taught designer, engineer and fabricator, to set up the Arch Motorcycle Company. The duo are, in fact, ready with their very first motorcycle – the Arch KRGT-1 – and it's not too bad, really.

Sort of depends on your definition of "bad."

Well, give the poor movie star a chance - it's only his first motorcycle after all... :-D ;-)
