Modular brass and aluminum headlight, taillight, turn signal collection
Designed and made in Italy, Vity’s Design continues to expand its range. These Vity’s ‘Juicer Collection’ headlights, taillights and signals are available in Europe through France based purchasing portal provider, distribution, buying consortium and vendor representation specialist MAG Connection.
Noted for their top end design and precision manufacturing, Vity’s is the brainchild of Matteo Vitali, who had his first bike (a mini-crosser) when he was just 6 years old, and who fell under the spell of the Bar & Shield while on a trip to San Francisco in 2010, buying his first Harley, a Sportster, a year later when he was back in Italy.
Based at Fermo, between Ancona and Pescara on Italy’s Adriatic coast, Matteo is a formally trained and qualified machinist and started making his first motorcycle parts on the lathes and mills in the family engineering business in 2000. When he completed his qualifications and went to work full-time in the business in 2005, and following his surrender to the appeal of Milwaukee’s finest, started Vity’s Design in 2012.
Proving that there is always a market for quality and great design, the Vity’s line-up has grown quickly since then and includes handlebar controls, foot controls, pegs, forward controls, mirrors, covers, gas caps, air cleaners, lights and more. Three primary ranges are offered – the ‘Vity’s Collection’, the ‘Diamond Bagger’ collection, and a ‘24kt Gold’ collection – all with the emphasis on stylish, contemporary interpretations of retro chic and on precision fit and finish.
“The design can be based on a shape as simple as a traditional fruit juicer – sometimes simplicity is the most sophisticated design choice you can make, and using tireless, familiar, long established motifs can help a design appear genuinely and authentically retro,” Matteo says.
As with the velocity stacks we showcased previously, the approach is modular, so a wide variety and combination of looks can be created.
“Every custom motorbike is different from the other,” Matteo went on to say. “The headlight in a motorcycle is one of the most important components – you just can't avoid it. Most headlights for Harleys and custom bikes are just functional. Sure, quality, durability and safety are important, but there is no reason why a little creativity can’t be applied to add the fourth virtue of style.
“This new collection does that – quality, safety, durability and style in a modular system that allows dealers and builders to create a variety of options for their customers. All parts are CNC-machined from quality aluminum and brass; matching air cleaner also available.”
