Unobtanium is a word you hear spoken often at the Quail Motorcycle Gathering. The bikes scattered throughout all have history. Whether it's the new Confederate motorcycle that Revival Cycles just built or the R65ls that the owner never stopped riding-- each bike here has a story.

It's hard to focus on one thing with so many awesome bikes around. With my head on a swivel, I tried to keep my mind on track. Here are a few more of our favorite vintage bikes and customs from the Quail Motorcycle Gathering last weekend in Carmel-by-the-Sea.

Stay tuned for more coverage from this event and be sure to check out Part One of the gallery HERE!
