As Copenhageners, Larry and Harry have always biked as much as they could. Not just because it was green, cool or cheap, but because it was – is – the fastest, most convenient way to get around town. Harry had a contract business (building, not Goodfellas) for 20 years where he used a 60-year-old Danish Long John cargo bike to get from job to job. Larry was busy working for another Danish manufacturer, making the best cargo trike in the world. The problem was Harry’s vintage Long John was still faster, lighter and more manoeuvrable. That’s when Larry and Harry decided to build the perfect cargo bike.
Larry and Harry based the Bullitt design principles on the classic Danish Long John. It had to be strong, fast and reliable. But the Bullitt had to be much more than just functional: it had to be sexy.
Larry and Harry’s master plan was to build a bike that could replace much of the functions of a car in the city, but would also be a desirable object. This was a tough challenge because, let’s face it, cars are brilliant.
Larry and Harry love cars, especially late 60’s and early 70’s American muscle cars. The problem, of course, is fuel prices and emissions. The Bullitt is the environmentally friendly solution to getting around quickly, cheaply, and stylishly. From trucking down to the beach with a case of beer and a ghetto blaster to carrying out demanding commercial transport, the Bullitt will get you from A to B faster than a speeding… er… bullet. And you’ll look good doing it.
