MakerBot Is Changing The World

It was an inauspicious beginning. At the MakerBot event last night at CES 2014 the intro music tended towards soft hard rock. On the plate was a lilting guitar anthem by the Foo Fighters and then a song by Incubus, <i>Pardon Me</i>.<p><i>So pardon me while I burst into flames.</i><p>Luckily, nothing did.<p>Instead, as I …

Toshiba's 5-in-1 laptop concept debuts at CES with a detachable keyboard

Sure, notebook makers crow about their 2-in-1 hybrids, but Toshiba's brought something to CES that'll humble its competition: a 5-in-1 laptop. The transforming device comes with a slick magnesium alloy case reminiscent of a MacBook, and a 13.3-inch touchscreen. So, just what can this laptop …

Kawasaki W650 scrambler

Occasionally a bike comes along that stops me dead in my tracks. It’s usually a motorcycle that’s a little ‘different’: perhaps not 100% perfect, but with charm and style. And with that indefinable quality of begging to be ridden.<p>This Kawasaki W650 is one of those bikes, built by French graphic …

Triumph Catalina Scrambler

It was a problem of Robert Jordan’s own making, and it smacked him upside the head every time he ventured into his garage. There sat a perfectly restored 1960s Triumph 650 desert sled, looking like it just came out of Steve McQueen’s garage. Right next to it, his modern ride, a 2007 Triumph …

Kott Honda CB750F Super Sport

If you’re a fan of the Honda CB750, you probably know Kott Motorcycles. Dustin Kott is one of the best CB builders in the USA, sending out a steady stream of sleek, upgraded customs from his workshop in Newhall, California. And it’s more than just a business: “I have memories of sitting in front of …

Harley-Davidson WR racer

Racing motorcycles often have perfect proportions; they’re almost like the bikes you’d doodle in the corner of a schoolbook as a child. This 1946 Harley-Davidson is one of those machines, with an immaculate stance, perfectly symmetrical wheels and a beautiful economy of line.<p>It’s a WR model, a rare …

Honda CB550F by KDI Cycles

For a one-man band, Kevin Dinsmoor has had remarkable success. Based in the small town of Colchester in Connecticut, USA, he’s carved out a reputation as a builder of finely crafted vintage customs—like this Honda CB550F.<p>“The concept was hatched a couple of years ago,” says Dinsmoor, who runs KDI …

Officine RossoPuro Moto Guzzi

If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know that Filippo Barbacane is one of Italy’s leading craftsmen, specializing in classy Moto Guzzi customs. The builds coming out of his Officine RossoPuro workshop are refined, elegant and desirable, and I’d be happy to put one next to the V7 in my garage. This …

Dime City Cycles Bonneville

The 50s and 60s were arguably the best years of British motorcycling. Invariably finished in black and chrome, the bikes repeatedly pushed the envelope of engineering—until the Japanese arrived. It was a golden era, and it’s the inspiration for the latest build from Dime City Cycles—the …

Triumph 6T custom by Baron's

With all the attention on the ‘new wave’ custom scene, it’s sometimes easy to overlook the older workshops that have been quietly operating for years or decades. One of those shops is The Baron’s Speed Shop in London. It’s run by Dick Smith, who has forgotten more than most people know about …

Honda Ruckus custom

I used to think that 1970s CBs were the most heavily customized Hondas. Until I discovered the extraordinary subculture that has grown up around the Honda Ruckus. Yes, it’s a scooter and it’s got a meager 49cc. But it’s a distinctive looking machine, with wide tires, a bare bones frame and twin …

Trackmaster by Atom Bomb

Clay Rathburn is one of those annoying ‘renaissance’ types who seem to be good at whatever they turn their hands to. First was a string of traditional Triumph hardtails—including the irresistible Velvet Underground. Then we had the RVA Overland vintage dirt bike, and a Harley Sportster 1200 that …

Vintage style motorcycle: the Black Douglas

Take the A51 <i>autostrada</i> out of Milan, and half an hour later you’ll arrive in the small town of Brugarolo. It’s home to one of Italy’s more unusual bike manufacturers, the Black Douglas Motorcycle Company.<p>Black Douglas makes vintage-style motorcycles with a distinctly English appearance, like the …
