Motorcycle @ Kiehl's Store

This is one of four or five motorcyckes inside the Kiehl's store in the East Village. Kiehl's is a NYC company that sells really nice hair care and body products.

So do you know how to ride a motorcycle? I don't but I hope to one day.

Wow! There's a Kiehl's near me on the Upper West Side, and I've never noticed a motorcycle in the store! Although I confess I've never stepped foot into it..so there may very well be one in there.

In theory yes, but I lack of practice since I was a young boy, so probably I don't!

Clark Cable's bike? Nice. I like that tractor seat.

I have ridden a motorcycle, but not often enough to say I really know what I'm doing! That seat does not look too comfy to me!

Hair care, body products AND MOTORCYCLES???? That's quite a varied product line!

ya gotta wonder what one has to do with the other...

That is a beautiful machine.
This is somewhat ironic. I ride motorcycles almost everyday when the weather allows, but I have really short hair and never use hair products. If I were in NY I never would have seen the bike.

What a beautiful vintage bike! Have never driven a motorcycle, but have spent a quite a few windblown hours as a passenger on the back. Kiehl's has the best stuff—I have to stay away or I'll come home with lots'o product and no cash!

I don't understand why Kiehl is hosting this bike. I have seen many bikes on the web in the last few days because my husband has began to be quite obsessed by the thought of buying one, quite similar to this!
Nice spot, Ming!

Stylish machine. What have the bikes got to do with hair and body care products?!

Jacob said...

That's an oldie, but goodie. Yes, I can ride.

It is certainly a matter of curiosity why an establishment that sells hair car and body products sees fit to show off motorcycles.

Great shot, whatever.

I had to click to see it larger - I was so intrigued by the fact that a motorcycle decorates a Kiehl's store. Why? Ah Clark Gable... A groovy bike for a stylish man.

now that's a nice motorcycle. I am going to get one this summer, God Willing. Used to have a Yamaha bike when I was back home

I drive so fast that is why i reject myself to acquire high speed motorcycle. To keep me safe of course.

Hope you include my photoblog in your list or let exchange link if it ok with you.

Hi from Kiehl's! We just saw this post and wanted to say THANKS! Kiehl's founding family members were major motorcycle riders and their impressive collection of vintage Harley's and Indians are on display at Kiehl's stores around the world. Check out a recent collaboration with Jesse James - the chopper he built for Kiehl's is at our Santa Monica store. Some good info about our bike history can be read here:
