We’ve ridden a handful of Ural sidecar motorcycles, and almost nothing else on wheels garners as much friendly interest from strangers as these two-wheel drive throwbacks. Now, the Le Mani Moto shop customized an already cool 2006 Ural and made it angry bespoke, a very good thing indeed. The Ural received a teardown and a rebuilt frame and sidecar suspension, as well as a totally new paintjob with green, maroon, and silver along with brown leather and tweed seats, and stunning copper trim pieces and highlights. Though we wouldn’t call it color-coordinated, the result is an eye-catcher. Finer details like the stepped twin headlights, genuine wood trim, a Russian coat of arms, etched engine case, and hydraulic lines seem totally unnecessary, but we certainly laud the details that make this Ural even more special than stock.

We demand a lot from our shirts, which is why we like the shirts that come from Batch. Batch makes shirts that are durable, stylish, and well-built (by hand!)–without the hefty price tag. Case in point: Batch’s Specialist Utility Shirt. Equal parts rugged yet refined and stylish yet durable, this shirt expertly balances simplicity, detail and function with its Giza cotton construction, oversized chest pockets with side expansion and spread collar. Those same details make it great with jeans or worn open over your favorite tee. Dress better with Batch.
