1984 JP Weigle Custom, Playboy's Bike of the Year

Playboy selected this J.P. Weigle Special for its “The Best” list as “The Best Custom Bike.” A unique honor for any bike, it shared the page with “Best Robe,” “Best Hotel Suite,” and “Best Stuff On A Stick” (it was a popsicle in case you’re wondering). To be featured in a men’s magazine may not seem as respectable as a cycling publication, but Playboy actually did manage to capture what makes the J.P. Weigle Special a special bike. “The best,” they say, “isn’t ostentatiousness or glitz. The best is style and innovation, originality and execution. The best, above all, is class.”
