Arch Motorcycle Company masters the art of building custom performance bikes. When actor Keanu Reeves first approached bike designer and engineer Gard Hollinger in 2007 about a customization project for his Harley- Davidson, little did the motorcycle-obsessed duo know that they would end up launching Arch Motorcycle Company together in 2011, eventually crafting the ultimate custom American V-twin engine performance bike. Inspired by Reeves’ quest for an American V-twin cruiser that would be ideal for riding long distances while maintaining the agile handling of a performance bike, Hollinger spent three years furthering the design and engineering of the original prototype. In 2015, Arch debuted the KRGT-1, bringing together the best in motorcycle design and technology. Offered in limited production—currently, the Hawthorne, California-based company builds a maximum of 40 bikes annually; Hollinger says that number is not likely to exceed 100—each KRGT-1 is tailored to the rider’s preferences, from riding position to bespoke finishes. Here’s how to spot one of these exclusive performance cruisers on the road.
