True Inspiration

This was the drawing that started it all for me. It's drawn by a designer named Kenny Safford - the O.G. of modern moto design. My mom found it in a magazine (Popular Mechanics I think) and gave it to me. I remember just staring at this drawing and thinking - this is what I want to do with my life. I want to design motorcycle gear. So I went back to school, got a degree in Industrial Design, and dreamed of creating my own street motorcycle brand. Eleven years later Icon was released to market. I hope someday one of my products inspires someone the way this sketch still inspires me. -Kurt
