Each of Classified Moto‘s recycled designs comes with its own history, so any customer can see which motorbikes the parts came from. For example this table was built from vintage Japanese moto components from the ’70s and ’80s. The legs are made from brushed chrome fork tubes, and transmission gears serve as feet to ensure the table doesn’t topple over.

Their vintage lamp design incorporates a spring/shock welded to a transmission gear, then welded to a brake rotor, and finished with high-quality Bakelite sockets. Each piece comes complete with original scratches and dents, which add to the vintage finish.

Classified even take special requests for specific parts and styles, so former motorbike owners nostalgic for their old high school motorbike can ask for parts to be worked into a unique and sentimental design.
