This motorcycle ($6,600) is hand made in Indiana, with a design that's based on the old British cafe racers (simple, lightweight bikes that were built for quick bursts of speed). Standout details include a hand-formed aluminum tank, a noticeable lack of plastic parts, front and rear disk brakes, plus a modern suspension. The 229cc engine pushes the 265-pound Phoenix up to a maximum of 70 miles per hour.
