Steampunk motorcycles! The future is the past.

Steampunk,  defined by the urban dictionary is “a sub genre of speculative fiction, usually set in an anachronistic Victorian or quasi-Victorian alternate history setting. It could be described by the slogan “What the past would look like if the future had happened sooner.” It includes fiction with science fiction, fantasy or horror themes.”

Defined by me as one insane machine that only could exist in an alternate reality.  This one of a kind bike could exist today or 125 years ago, looking awesome no matter the century you are riding this beast in!

This Steampunk inspired chopper was designed by Russian graphic designer, Mikhail Smolyanov of Solifague Design, He calls it “the Black Widow”  This steampunk chopper has everything a steampunk could love from  Steam control dials to the custom steam v-twin engine to the single sided swing arm. This low rider stretched out chopper has everything you want in a machine of the future that is inspired by the past!


Now that you have  seen this bike and have decided that you just have, to have one.   The guys over at Putsch Racing have been chosen to bring this dream to reality and for a small fee they will custom build this widow just for you.

So go check out  for more designs by Mikhail Smolyanov and in the comments tell us what you like or would change on this ride!
