Riding a vintage-style motorcycle might actually automatically make a guy cool — and it requires way less energy (and possibly coin) than revamping your entire wardrobe and dropping 20 pounds. The two-wheeled style of a bygone era simply grabs everyone’s attention without seeming ostentatious. And, contrary to popular belief, buying one doesn’t mean dealing with out-of-date tech and hair-ripping mechanical frustrations.

That’s because some modern motorcycle manufacturers — some of the best, in fact — have designed and built bikes that hark back to timeless style. Though we don’t recommend that you get out there with a flimsy leather helmet and goggles, we do strongly urge you to invest in the right gear and then hit the road on any of these five fantastic vintage-style motorcycles, looking damn good while doing it.
