The Story: Man on the Move is the product of a life-long friendship between co-founders Ian Velardi and Stuart Schwartzapfel. The pair developed a funny habit of calling one another every time a cool car or motorcycle drove by to discuss, in intricate detail, how utterly awesome it was. They started Man on the Move in February 2009.

I’ve always liked motion and some of the things that best exemplified that sense for me are certainly cars and motorcycles. I’ve always appreciated light, simple, innovative, elegant, no-nonsense-straight-to-the-point, efficient designs that allowed both room for expansion and evolution. Some examples would be classic air-cooled Porsche 911, Honda S2000 and Lotus Exige among cars and Honda RC30/VFR750R among bikes. Colin Chapman’s credo “simplify and add lightness” describes the things I like best.
