1936 Koehler-Escoffier Moto-Ball Special / Heroes Motorcycles


One of the weirdest sports the world has ever seen is Moto-Ball: It’s like polo, but with motorcycles instead of horses. A Moto-Ball field is the same size as a soccer pitch, but the ball is bigger than a regular soccer ball. The goalkeeper is the only person not riding a bike—and probably has a high chance of suffering a truly horrific injury. Moto-Ball is a minority sport these days, but 80 years ago it prompted the creation of some truly lovely bikes. This is one of them, a Koehler-Escoffier with remarkably modern proportions. It’s a restoration by Serge Bueno of Heroes Motorcycles in Los Angeles, a shop with a staggering inventory of desirable two-wheelers — via Bike EXIF
