Keanu Reeves and motorcycle builder Gard Hollinger founded Arch Motorcycle in 2011 as partners. The story goes, back in 2007 Keanu asked Gard if he could make a sissy bar for his Harley Davidson and Gard declined. But eventually he did agree to build a custom bike, which ended taking about four and a half years. Keanu said, “Once that bike was built and we rode it, we saw it was really exceptional! And, at that point, I thought this bike should be in the world. So, I asked Gard if he wanted to start a motorcycle company”.
The company launched its first model in 2014 called the KRGT-1. The California-based Arch specializes in custom bikes and the company offers three models at this time. Described as sporty and aggressive with a chopper-like design, the motorcycles are built for cruising. The bike does not come cheap and pricing starts at $85,000. In addition customers can purchase a new customized bike and a two-day ride experience with Reeves and Hollinger—for $150,000.
