Keanu Reeve’s side project, a bespoke motorcycle venture, has been on our radar for the past few years and it has steadily been picking up traction. This year, the model line for Arch Motorcycles is being expanded to three varieties, and sitting at the top of the list is the 2018 Method 143.
Aiming for a limited production run of just 23 units this year, the Method 143 sets itself apart from the other in the Arch Motorcycles line by being their first based on a mono cell carbon fiber frame, allowing for a fuel cell to be integrated into the radical chassis design. Keanu and his partner Gard Hollinger opt for a 143 cubic-inch S&S fuel injected V-Twin to crank up the Method, a choice sure to perform and sound great mated to a set of MotoGP inspired titanium and carbon fiber custom pipes. Ohlins supplied the fork and shock to smooth out the ride for the Arch designed 17-inch carbon fiber wheels, with Arch also wrapping the forks in an aerodynamic carbon fiber sheathing for that ultra low drag look. Body work is capped with CNC aluminum and leather covering the seat, tank, and rear cowl, though Arch does offer their customers a custom tailored finish if those materials don’t tickle your fancy.
