Unapologetic: Soyouz Cycles’ Yamaha XS650

Like all aesthetic pursuits, customizing motorcycles is mostly an exercise in personal taste. So when we told Philippe Lagente that his Yamaha XS650 might get less than favorable comments, his response was: “I don’t mind—and I love to ride it.”<p>Based in Toulouse, France, Philippe builds bikes as …

Ultra Noir: A blacker than black Honda CB750

Murdered-out customs used to be all the rage. But lately, builders have been favoring more diverse color palettes. Which is a real pity: done right, black-on-black can be downright beautiful.<p>Clockwork Motorcycles‘ Samuel Guertin proves it with his latest offering: a 1978 Honda CB750 with a brawny …

Digging Deep: A rusty CB750F2 from Outsiders

Rusty bikes seldom garner a second glance. But this new offering from Outsiders Motorcycles warrants close inspection—because there’s a lot more at play than a little patina.<p>Outsiders is based in the ancient city of Groningen in The Netherlands. The shop is run by couple Bert and Jene, with help …

Maltese Falcon: A Triumph Bonneville cafe racer

The Triumph Bonneville has got to be one of the most heavily customized bikes on the market today. In fact, we don’t think we’ve ever seen a Bonneville on the street that hasn’t been tweaked in some way, whether it’s a discreet farkle or a full performance upgrade.<p>This cafe racer from Spain’s Macco …

Factory Fresh: Auto Fabrica's super clean SR400

At a glance, Yamaha’s re-issued SR400 is virtually indistinguishable from its vintage counterparts. Which is probably why it’s so popular.<p>It has all the charm associated with the iconic SR designation, with the added benefits of fuel injection and ‘new bike’ reliability. A combination that led Auto …

Teeth Gnasher: Thor Drake's Scrambler bike

Thor Drake’s love for motorcycling and his desire to go beyond the ordinary can be seen in his latest project, a race-ready 2010-spec Triumph Scrambler. It’s at home on the track, in the woods and on the road.<p>Drake, part-owner of Portland-based See See Motor Coffee Co., has an easy smile and boyish …

Little Baby: Cafe Racer Dreams' SR125

Let’s be honest: most of the bikes that make waves on the custom scene are big-budget builds. They cost as much as a new motorcycle driven off a showroom floor.<p>And that’s fine, because that’s the price of personalization in a commoditized world. High-level artistry does not come cheap. But it’s …

Le French Atelier's Yamaha TW200

The Yamaha TW125 is one of the oddities of the motorcycling world. It’s short, high-ridin’ and underpowered.<p>It doesn’t sound promising—but over the past 15 years, the TW125 has built up a strong fan base. And if you’ve ridden a fat-tired TW over the sand dunes, you’ll know how much fun it can …

The ultimate Triumph Scrambler?

The Scrambler is one of the most-loved Triumph motorcycles of recent times. But there’s a common criticism: its off-road performance doesn’t <i>quite</i> match those beguiling looks.<p>That shortfall has just been blown to smithereens by a team of five motorcycle engineers. And not just any engineers: they’re …

Recall: A BMW R75 dressed to kill

As classic BMWs go, the “slash-5s” are pretty sought after. They’re packed with little styling details that eventually fell away on later models—like the rounded air box, ‘peanut’ engine covers and the ‘toaster’ tank.<p>Add those details to a luscious old-school paint job, and you’ve got a winner. …

Honda CL400 by Urban Rider

Condor: the other boxer motorcycle

Unless you’re a military enthusiast or a Swiss army conscript, you probably haven’t heard of Condor-Werke AG.<p>It’s one of Europe’s sleeper marques, and started building motorcycles for the Swiss military in 1893. (Yes, that’s a year before Hildebrand & Wolfmüller launched the first true production …

Dutch Treat: Jules Brans' Yamaha XS750

The Yamaha XS750 triple is one of the most underrated motorcycles of the 1970s. It never achieved the cachet of the Honda CB750, and these days, its smaller SR400 and SR500 brethren are more popular with custom shops.<p>That makes the XS750 affordable on the secondhand market, and this super-sanitary …

Motorcycling and fashion have been holding hands for quite some time now. Fashion houses are commissioning builds and using motorcycles in their marketing. And conversely, custom shops are turning to merchandise to help grow their brands.<p>Somewhere in the middle you’ll find Gentlemen’s Factory. …

Clutch Customs' sublime Kawasaki KZ650

Kawasaki KZ650s don’t come across our desks too often. So we were intrigued to see this one from Monsieur Willie Knoll at Paris’ Clutch Custom Motorcycles.<p>Willie has an obsession with lines and details, and a knack for nipping and tucking a bike until everything sits just right. Equally impressive …
