Dirico Motorcycles USA and David Uhl Studios


Dirico Motorcycles and renowned painter David Uhl have a unique relationship that is cemented in our personal relationship with famed rocker Steven Tyler. Both as a principal partner and the creative inspiration for the unique line of Dirico motorcycles, as well as long time subject matter for David and his canvas. While providing subject for the brush stroke of David and his own passion for motorcycles, Tyler has opened us up to his family life, and again provided the insight for yet another series of amazing paintings featuring Chelsea and Taj Tyler, both featuring a perfectly matched Dirico motorcycle. So we asked David to reveal his inspiration, and this is what was laid forth…

"I was hugely inspired to create the piece of Chelsea after shooting a series of photographs in the woods near Boston. She just climbed up on that Dirico Pro Street and looked like a painting immediately. The paint flowed from my brushes just as seamlessly. In contrast to the soft innocence of the Chelsea piece, I was  sent back through time with the nostalgic lines of the Dirico Bobber. Once designer and master inventor Mark Dirico showed me the bike, I instantly envisioned Taj back in 43' pairing with the classic shape of a P51 Mustang. Since I have painted this aircraft several times and being familiar with it's records,  I decided to put him next to one of the worlds most famous of  Warbirds, The "Cripes A Mighty". Even I was surprised how well all these elements meshed together to create a timeless feeling composition."

"We are pleased to be aligned with David and his passion for motorcycles and its connection to American history and its way of life. It is a perfect extension of the foundation that drives us at Dirico," said Stephen Talarico, President of Dirico Motorcycles USA. Both Dirico and David look forward to collaborating on future projects, as our partnership has been one of wonder and a journey through the nostalgia that drives us all within this industry.
