It started out as a weekend project for Hollywood’s Keanu Reeves back in 2007 but Arch Motorcycles has come a long way since then! When the self-taught engineer Gard Hollinger joined the company, they started to make production models and to date, they have made three different models including the Method 143.

Arch Motorcycles is now a partnership between Keanu Reeves and designer Gard Hollinger, and with the Method 143 they have created a true masterpiece of a motorcycle.

First ever carbon fiber monoshell

The Method 143 features a massive 2400cc S&S V-Twin engine producing 170 hp. The power unit is surrounded by the first ever carbon fiber monoshell chassis with an integrated fuel tank. Ohlins forks up front and a rear single-sided swingarm.

The wheels are 17” in size and 100% carbon fiber with Michelin Power RS tires. The upper bodywork and seat are made of a single piece of sleek machined aluminum and instrumentation is provided by an integrated smartphone dock. Only 23 units of the bike are to be made.

“The T143 requires technical expertise for the installation and tuning – along with an experienced rider. This is an ultra performance/ race engine. Longevity, engine noise, vibration and throttle sensitivity have all been compromised to reach this level of performance”
