Flat tracker by Lorenzo Buratti

There’s something strangely appealing about flat tracker bikes. Maybe it’s the stripped-back look. Or the stubby proportions. Or the way the front ends always look so clean without a brake.<p>There are a lot of good looking trackers out there, but this is the best we’ve seen for a long while. It’s the …

Top 5 Triton motorcycles

The idea was simple: take the best engine and the best frame of the time, and combine them. In the 60s, that was considered to be Triumph’s Bonneville engine and Norton’s Featherbed frame. And so the Triton was born.<p>The Featherbed frame was applauded at the time for its handling. Which is not …

James Whitham's W650 tracker

It’s comforting to know that even TV stars and retired former race aces aren’t immune to the project bike disease. That’s why former Grand Prix, World Superbike and World Supersport racer James Whitham has spent the last 15 months of his limited spare time building his take on the street tracker …

Honda NX650 'Dos' by Kiddo Motors

Sergio Armet burst onto the custom scene a couple of years ago with a brilliant Honda NX650 custom, ‘Kiddo Uno.’ He’s been busy in his Barcelona workshop ever since, and he’s now returned to his roots with a second NX650, ‘Dos.’<p>‘Dos’ is a short, sharp shock based on a 1991 NX650. It’s styled even …

Honda Nighthawk by Classified Moto

If there’s a builder entitled to look back on 2013 with a quiet sense of satisfaction, it’s John Ryland of Classified Moto. He’s enjoyed both critical and commercial success, with so many commissions he’s had to close the order book on more than one occasion.<p>This is the final 2013 build to roll out …

Deus Ex Machina: Sibling Rivalry

Two new Deus Ex Machina motorcycles have just rolled out of the Venice, California workshop. Affectionately called Sibling Rivalry, these custom Hondas are high-performance variations on the same theme: turning a street-legal enduro bike into a badass ‘super single.’<p>‘Boodaak’ (above and below) and …

Yamaha Virago 535 by OEM

Not many custom builders have been invited to display their bikes in Harrods and the Saatchi Gallery. But then again, England’s magnificently named Old Empire Motorcycles is not your run-of-the-mill custom shop.<p>They’ve only been operating for a couple of years, but Alec Sharp and his crew have …

Revival Cycles' killer Moto Guzzi Le Mans

With too much bodywork and an awkward looking 16” front wheel, the Le Mans IV wasn’t exactly the prettiest Moto Guzzi to roll out of Mandello del Lario. So it’s not surprising that the owner of this 1986 model turned to Texas’ Revival Cycles to transform it from factory stock into the bike you see …

Kawasaki W650 by CRD

The Kawasaki W650 is a motorcycle just begging to be customized. Production ended in 2008, but it’s easy to find one on the secondhand market, prices are reasonable, and custom parts are plentiful.<p>There are a lot of top-dollar W650 builds out there, yet this 2003 model shows what can be done with a …

Husqvarna Nuda custom

I was pretty excited when the Husqvarna Nuda 900R was released in 2012—and equally disappointed when it was discontinued, following Pierer Industrie AG’s acquisition of the Italian marque a year ago. The supermoto-esque naked featured a punched out, 898cc version of the Rotax twin-cylinder mill …

Impazza lo “street food” Di Luce Bianca

Pane con la milza, pane e panelle, arancine: come resistere al richiamo del cibo di strada? Pare sia proprio impossibile. Lo dimostra una recente …

Cibo di strada, Palermo al quinto posto

Nella classifica di «VirtualTourist» è l'unica città italiana nella top ten. Al primo posto l'asiatica Bangkok<p>PALERMO - Quante volte capita di …

Honda CBS125 by Dauphine-Lamarck

There are dozens of builders who work on nothing but Harleys. Countless others stick exclusively to Indians, Moto Guzzis or Ducatis. But we didn’t know there’s a workshop that specializes in tiny Hondas from the 60s to the 80s—until now.<p>This classy little Honda CBS125 comes from Dauphine-Lamarck, a …

Yamaha XS650 by Thrive Motorcycle

When asked to reveal their influences, builders can come up with some pretty odd answers. But I don’t think I’ve ever seen “a wood-burning stove” credited before.<p>‘Moon’ comes from Thrive Motorcycle of Jakarta, and they have an unusual method for finding out what their customers like. Putra Agung …

Kindhuman Rhebok

Have you ever dreamed of being a sponsored cyclist, paid to travel the world and ride your bike? Most professionals will tell you it’s not as glamorous as it’s made out to be, but not an experience they would trade for the world. Kindhuman is a Canadian brand of frames and apparel that has come up …

T1 Ti Barcode

A favourite book on my shelf is called Rad Rides, a compendium of the Best BMX Bikes Of All Time. It’s a must-read for any fan, exploring the world of the hardcore BMX collector. Many of the featured bikes are owned and were restored by Joe Stevenson, but one that wasn’t included is his personal …

Cafe Racer Dreams BMW R90/6

Some custom motorcycles are so outlandish that they grab your attention immediately, while some are so understated and classy that, once you notice them, you can’t look away. Case in point: Cafe Racer Dreams‘ #38.<p>This stunning ’74 BMW R90/6 belongs to José Martín Espinosa, a prominent figure in the …

Honda CB cafe racer by ExesoR

Is brown the new black? This highly-caffeinated Honda CB café racer built for a coffee company sure looks good. It’s a creative mix of CB250, CB360 and CB400 parts, and it took Christian Schwarzenlander of ExesoR Motorcycles over two years to construct.<p>Christian is a quality control engineer from …

Ducati custom by Corse Motorcycles

Anthony Warnock is an ex-WSBK/MotoGP mechanic and now runs Corse Motorcycles in Perth, Australia. His specialty is late model Ducatis, having worked in Europe on the racing scene for 12 years, and for the factory itself in 2003. When he returned back to his home town, he was given the opportunity …

BMW R nineT by Urban Motor

The most audacious motorcycle launch of late has been the BMW R nineT. Who’d have thought that the clinical Germans would reveal a naked boxer with built-in options for customization? Even better, Ola Stenegärd’s design team have wasted no time in delivering pre-production models to selected custom …

Icon 1000 'Iron Lung' Sportster

Icon’s design director Kurt Walter is one of the most inspired bike builders operating in the USA today. Working with a tight-knit crew in the company’s Portland headquarters, he creates machines that are bombastic, aggressive and refreshingly unorthodox. Like this 1991 Harley Sportster roadracer, …

Harley Sportster by Headcase Kustom

Right now, the Harley Sportster is challenging for position on the café racer scene. (Before purists complain, I’m using the term ‘café racer’ very loosely—meaning the opposite of cruiser custom style.)<p>This sleek and agressive build comes from Casey Johnson, who runs Headcase Kustom Art in Southern …

Lamborghini Gallardo Twin Turbo by Heffner Performance da 1470 CV

La Lamborghini Gallardo, una vettura entrata di diritto nella storia della casa di Sant'Agata Bolognese, viene rivista da Heffner Performance che la …

Officine RossoPuro 'Eroica'

Most of the leading custom builders work on commission—they get a brief from a client, a direction is agreed upon, and a motorcycle starts to take shape. Compromise is inevitable, whether it’s around budget or aesthetic direction.<p>But every now and then, as you can imagine, it’s good to get free …

Bimota DB3 by Analog Motorcycles

Amidst the beauty parade of BMWs, Hondas and Triumphs, it’s good to see a more obscure marque getting a custom makeover. And before you recoil in horror at the thought of a Bimota going under the knife, rest assured that the donor bike was probably the ugliest machine to come out of Bimota’s Rimini …
