SECA AND YOU SHALL FIND. A Yamaha XJ600 Racer by Foundry Motorcycles

Posted on November 24, 2017 by Andrew in Café Racer, Racer. 11 comments

There’s a whole lot of customs out there that fly pretty close to the definition of cheating. You can do up a SR500 to look like an old school cafe racer easily enough and bikes like the W650 come as a pre-packaged halfway point to a great looking custom…

THE REAL DEAL. Heiwa’s ’68 BSA B25 Bobber

Posted on November 24, 2017 by Andrew in Bobber, Classic. 14 comments

If you ask me to tell you the difference between a genuine Louis Vuitton handbag and a 50 buck knock off from eBay, I could examine it with a magnifying glass and still have no idea. But save yourself the 3k and buy your girlfriend the Chinese fake for her birthday…

BAT INTO HELL. Macco’s ‘Dark Angel’ Yamaha XJR1300

Posted on November 22, 2017 by Andrew in Brat, Café Racer. 21 comments

If you’ve ever ridden any of the larger capacity UJMs, you’ll know that a lack of caution when applying the throttle can be a biblical experience, metaphorically or otherwise. With sub three second ton-up times for most of these colossally-motored motos…

FASTER DAUGHTERS. Tattoo Custom’s ’74 Honda CB360 Brat Cafe

Posted on November 21, 2017 by Andrew in Brat, Café Racer. 23 comments

When it comes to a custom builder’s inspiration, we thought we’d seen it all. Bikes inspired by Japanese swords, lightspeed spaceships and sociopath hit men? Been there, done that; as with most truly creative pursuits, inspiration can come from almost anywhere…

UNDERNEATH THE RADAR. A Honda CB750 Urban Scrambler by Moto Adonis

Posted on November 20, 2017 by Andrew in Scrambler. 44 comments

Americans don’t know how lucky they are. It seems to us outsiders that you could weld a set of wheels to an Exocet missile and it would still be considered a roadworthy bike in all 50 states. But for the rest of us – especially those in the EU – there’s an army of engineering bureaucrats…

DUC DASTARDLY. A ’65 Ducati 250 Scrambler From MotoRelic

Posted on November 16, 2017 by Andrew in Classic, Scrambler. 44 comments

MotoRelic is a little shop run out of Hamilton, Virginia by the very talented Sean Skinner. And despite having over 20 years of experience as a mechanic under his belt he was nearly beaten by this – a cursed 1965 Ducati 250 Scrambler that he dubbed the ‘Dastardly Ducati’…

MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE. A Fully Transformed Ducati Tracker From Benjie’s

Posted on November 16, 2017 by Andrew in Tracker. 15 comments

We can read your mind. You’re trying to guess which donor Ducati Benjie’s Cafe Racers used to build this, their latest custom bike home run. A Monster perhaps? What about a ST4S? Or maybe a Scrambler? They’re pretty good guesses, but you’d be wrong on all counts…

A FLYING START. Sur Les Chapeaux De Roues’ Honda Gold Wing Cafe Bobber

Posted on November 14, 2017 by Andrew in Bobber, Brat, Café Racer. 23 comments

Here’s a fun fact. Shoichiro Irimajiri, the Honda engineer who designed the first generation Honda Gold Wing engine, had spent the previous 10 years making Grand Prix engines. His initial concept for the Gold Wing was a 1500cc flat six engine that put out 80bhp and propelled the test bike to well in excess of 140mph…

SNAKES AND LATTICE. The ‘Cobra’ Honda XR250 from Argentina’s Lucky Customs

Posted on November 13, 2017 by Andrew in Other, Tracker. 27 comments

‘Chuckable’. It’s what we call bikes in England and Down Under that are super easy to throw around on the road. You might call them lithe, lightweight or manoeuvrable. It’s what you get when you start with something that’s already pretty minimal and push it even further…
