Mule Motorcycles, an interview with Richard Pollock

Mule Motorcycles from Champions Moto on Vimeo.

“I like to build things”. Richard Pollock has been building bikes since 1969, and does it full-time now. Forget airbrushed skulls, daggers, grim reaper, instead think along the lines of clean, lean, and light. “I like to make the bikes more seamless, cleaner, and smoother”, said Pollock, via a local interview with the San Diego Union-Tribune. Pollock builds custom, one-off motorcycles, handmade, on his own timeline, typically a year or so. One of his bikes took 6 years to build, named the XR-1660, a beautiful street-tracker.

Interview with, quite detailed and good interview.

From the interview, Where did you come up with the name: Mule Motorcycles?
“I was into bicycle racing for a number of years. I liked to be at the front pulling instead of sitting in the draft. Everybody had nicknames and eventually I got the nickname “Mule”. Then a bicycle racing friend who I was building a bike for called me one day and said, “Is this Mule Motorcycles?” We had a good laugh about it, but later the name made sense. A Mule is a hybrid. A combination of genetic traits that exceeds the performance and intelligence of both its parents. That’s how I viewed the bikes I was building and a business name was born.”

Vyrus 986 M2 — just a little different

The Vyrus 986 M2 is a custom racer built on a Honda CBR600RR engine, and uses the engine as a stressed member, and no telescopic forks. Instead of forks, it uses rods, levers to connect to the handle bars. Built by Ascanio Rodorigo of Italy, the steering is called hub-center steering, which can provide huge advantages on the track, keeping weight balance neutral. Will this setup bring about a huge change in the future of suspension?

Most of the body is carbon fiber monococque, reducing weight. Vyrus plans to introduce a race ready bike, a street legal sportbike, and a kit bike (bolt in your own CBR600 engine).

I Don’t Want a Pickle, just want to ride my motorsickle…

From their description, “Motorcycle references pepper the collection, partly due to the culture for customisation on the streets of Edwin’s home city – Tokyo and simply down to the feelings one experiences riding a motorcycle with friends. A sense of freedom, and of sharing with others the same need for flight and independence. Customisation of ones own motorcycle parallels breaking in ones own denims, unique in spirit.” Fun to watch and it’s a fun song.
