Unless you’ve been living in a cave with your eyes shut and your fingers in your ears, you’re familiar with Steve McQueen’s “The Great Escape”. If you’re familiar with “The Great Escape”, you’re familiar with Steve’s transport du jour, the motorcycle. Ergo, you’re familiar with this motorcycle. Modeled after the motorcycle Steve rode in that seminal piece of cinema, Blitz Motorcycles have meticulously recreated a piece of automotive history. They use the same 600cc engine size as the classic 1963 BMW Serie 2 cycle and those same iconic knobbled tires (sort of the grandaddy of the dirt bike), allowing you to pretend you’re as awesome as Steve was.
