A motorcycle should be simple: one engine, two wheels. But, back in 2009, Fred Jourden and Hugo Jézégabel couldn’t find any that fit their specifications – so they decided to make their own.

Leaving their 9–5 jobs, they set up Blitz Motorcycles in Paris, creating a garage where they would build only the most beautiful and unique motorcycles, all hand-designed, custom-built and tailored to the rider.

This was the start of an adventure that would take them from strength to strength, garage to desert to mountain.

Blitz Motorcycles: A Vision of Custom Motorcycles presents first the vision, and then the motorcycles in a gorgeous hardback edition.

    Before co-founding Blitz Motorcycles, Hugo Jézégabel was a landscape designer and a vintage scooter enthusiast.


    In 2004-2005, Fred Jourden took mechanics maintenance night classes, with plans to service his own daily ride (a ’61 R50/2 BMW), while he was head of European Marketing for an online based company.


    Along the way, they met and realised a shared philosophy, quitting their day jobs and creating ‘Blitz Motorcycles’.
