With a bottle of Rebel Yell nearby to sustain us, we combed through all the Rebels Uncaged entries and narrowed them down to 25 finalists. Then we asked those 25 to submit 100 words or less about their ultimate ride on one of the motorcycles commissioned for our 2017 contest.
Fortified with bourbon, we read those stories and narrowed it down to six chosen winners. These are the rebels who stole our hearts (and bikes):
Tyler (Florida): Milo, built by Flying Tiger Motors
Chad (Colorado): Dirty Twin, built by Analog Motorcycles
Sam (California): Frank, built by Classified Moto
Jenna (Utah): Odioso, built by Revival Cycles
AJ (Kansas): Sandman, built by Hageman Motorcycles
Scott (Massachusetts): The Gypsy, built by Gasser Custom
