Age of Glory is a new clothing brand from the team behind one of the best flat track race series in Europe, Vintage Racing Spirit. But this isn’t just some bandwagon jumping exercise to flog expensive T-shirts, founder Sebastien has 15 years experience in the cutthroat world of fashion and is turning his passion for motorcycling from a simpler time into a range of classy riding gear and apparel.
Which provides the perfect excuse to build a custom bike in the name of marketing. This 2002 Kawasaki W650 is Seb’s brainchild but brought to life by friend Nicolas from across town in his workshop Egerie Moto. Bike Exif have the scoop and a different photoset over on their website, head over there for the specs and detail.
We have a soft spot for the Ws and having tried the 800 (Dutch owned one for a while) and 650 on numerous occasions reckon the latter is the purer and more characterful version, perfect for the mountain roads and trails near Sebastien and Nico’s hometown of Lyon.
