Harley Softail Slim by Rough Crafts

The Harley Softail Slim has two points in its favor: it’s a simple bobber-style bike with a vintage vibe, and it has a super-low seat height of less than 24 inches. It’s basically a Fat Boy with the fat trimmed off, and there’s ample grunt from a 103ci (1688cc) Big Twin motor.<p>This makes it the …

El Solitario 'Impostor' BMW R nineT

In Europe, there are two manufacturers backing the custom scene hard: Yamaha and BMW.

Triumph Bonneville T100 by Bunker

Our most recent Top 5 feature showed just how versatile Triumph’s Bonneville is as a custom platform. The venerable Bonny makes for as good a flat tracker as it does a café-racer–so it’s easy to forget what a fine looking motorcycle it actually is in stock trim.<p>This 2013 Triumph Bonneville T100 …

Sideburn Royal Enfield Bullet

After 50 years of production in India, Royal Enfield had worked hard to update their range, first with a unit construction engine, then fuel injection and after all that the only thing on Sideburn magazine’s mind was making the 2009 Bullet Classic look like a mid-‘60s flat track racer.<p>Only half the …

Herr Funk's Yamaha TW125

Some motorcycles just scream fun. Before the Honda Grom there was the Yamaha TW125: A low-riding dual-sport bike that can’t decide if it belongs on the beach or the farm. With low gearing and big tires, it’s also at home on potholed city streets—as Maximilian Funk has found.<p>The TW has been around …

Kawasaki cafe racer by AC Sanctuary

The economics of the custom business in Japan are very different to what we usually see in the west. Most of the top builders have a loose formula that they’ve constantly refined over the years, using a small number of high-quality parts suppliers. It means they’re not reinventing the wheel with …

TIRE-SMOKE TUESDAY! By end of day, the Dunlop Q3 tires that we mounted for our naked bike track test had just enough tread left for the ride home. The Tuono V4 APRC ABS that Zack Courts was on had a little less.
