There is no assembly line at the Factory Metal Works. "So far I've done 10 or 11 bikes," says company founder Lucas Joyner. His creations are based on vintage Triumphs and custom-built with parts both old and new. This particular bike, powered by a 1964 Triumph 650, was commissioned by actor Ryan Reynolds. "He'd seen our stuff already, so he just said, 'Do what you do,'" Joyner says. The result is a machine so lustily beautiful you'd be tempted to leave it parked in your living room and never subject it to the indignity of even a single pebble ricocheting off its handmade rear fender.
