Locked Up: BMW Gangsta Track Aug 27, 2010


I’m sure you all know who’s bike this is. It belongs to Austin Horse. Usually when I see this bike, it’s flying past me on an avenue, or splitting traffic in midtown. Austin’s been thrashing his BMW Gangsta Track for years now. This signature neon orange has graced many alleycat videos and of course, it’s been around the world winning races.

Check out more photos below.


A well-used and aged messenger bike is like none other.


Tied and soldered spokes.


The All-City Sheriff Stars hold up great on the streets.


When locking on the street, a lot of the time you’ll share space with a neighboring bike. I thought it was funny how similar the use of these bikes are.


I love this bike. Thanks for letting me shoot it Austin!

    I didn’t know my Surley UAV (Urban Assault Vehicle) was in such good company.
