A Pukka Scrambler: Federal Moto’s Honda XR650L

Is ‘scrambler‘ the most overused description in the custom scene vernacular? Probably. It’s been allocated to everything from street bikes with upright ergonomics and knobby tires to true do-it-all machines.<p>We dig them all, but we’re suckers for the real deal. So this machine from Federal Moto has …

A Yamaha XT500 Built To Blast Through Swedish Forests

Despite the long winter nights and unforgiving climate, Sweden has a thriving custom industry. It’s what we’d call an ‘underground chopper’ scene—with the most famous graduate being BMW designer Ola Stenegärd.<p>But there’s a new wave of modern alt-moto builders coming through, and at the forefront is …

Fat Tracker: Wolf Moto’s chunky Yamaha TW200

Building a decent custom motorcycle can be a daunting task. But when your customer is also an accomplished builder, the pressure is doubled.<p>Wolf Moto got the commission for this Yamaha TW200 from Louis Nel—a talented South African builder based in Nelspruit, whose work we’ve featured before. Louis …

Jung Gun: A psychologist's custom BMW

Believe it or not, there’s a surf shop in Stockholm. And even stranger, it’s got a motorcycle workshop right underneath.<p>Despite the odd location, 6/5/4 Motors serves up some fine Scandinavian design in two-wheeled form. They hooked us a few weeks ago with a sharp Ducati 860 GT, and now they’re …

Into the woods: A Triumph Bonneville Scrambler

Under the hood, there’s not much difference between the Triumph Bonneville and Scrambler. Other than their firing intervals (the Scrambler has a 270-degree crank for extra ‘thump’), the bikes are mainly separated by styling cues.<p>Which means that, with a few well-placed mods, a stock Bonnie can be …

Six Nights: Urban Motor’s BMW R 100 GS

With the custom scene—and our team—spread across the globe, seeing the bikes we feature here in the flesh is a rare treat. Riding them, even rarer.<p>But walking around the ‘custom corner’ at BMW Motorrad Days in Bavaria earlier this year, there was one bike in particular that caught our eye. It was …

Going Dutch: Boy Janssen's XT 600 desert sled

Most custom bikes lead pretty easy lives. Even scramblers and dirt trackers are likely to spend more time on road than off. But this tough Yamaha XT 600 is the real deal—built to follow a rally team through North Africa.<p>It belongs to Boy Janssen, who recently swapped the streets of Amsterdam for a …

Kevils' timeless BMW R100 Scrambler

Custom BMWs are all the rage right now. But one workshop in England was producing stunning airheads way before they were cool.<p>Kev Hill and his crew at Kevil’s Speed Shop have been at it for six years, and over seventy builds have rolled out of the workshop in picturesque Devon. So they know their …

Naked Speed Special: Bryan Fuller's Scrambler

If Bryan Fuller’s name doesn’t immediately ring a bell, his face should. He’s the co-host of Naked Speed—Velocity’s popular, café-racer-centric show.<p>Bryan’s been getting his hands dirty far longer than he’s been in show business though. His shop—Fuller Moto—has built up an impressive portfolio of …

Two-wheel drive beast: The REV’IT! #95

I’ve often thought that the true customizers in the motorcycle world are the dirt riders. They’re always tweaking and tuning, bolting on upgrades in search of a performance edge.<p>Ironically, the biggest improvement you can make to a dirt bike is one you’ll hardly ever see: a 2-wheel drive conversion …

BMW Paris Dakar replica by Svako

With a barrage of classic BMW boxer customs gracing our screens of late, it’s easy to overlook the legendary R80 G/S. Being such an iconic motorcycle, few builders dare customize it. Especially when dealing with the über-cool Paris Dakar model with its large capacity fuel tank, solo seat and …

The BMW Scrambler: a missed opportunity?

BMW’s off-road heritage is peerless. The R80G/S was the forerunner of modern-day adventure bikes, and in the 1980s, the Bavarians scored four hard-won Paris-Dakar trophies.<p>So why hasn’t BMW ever built a classic scrambler? A few years ago, the Germans dipped their toes into the enduro market with …

6 motorcycle movies worth watching

The fine art of the motorcycle movie has hit a speed hump in recent years. Raw and gritty paens to the alternative lifestyle are harder to find. And easy access to broadcast-quality DSLR recording has caused a rise in quantity rather than quality.<p>But it’s not all showers of sparks from angle …

Dirty Geisha: Maria's Yamaha XT600

Turning old dualies into retro customs is all the rage lately. We’re not complaining—done right, the results are sharp looking, easy-going bikes.<p>The process comes with challenges: Most thumpers built in the ’80s and ’90s celebrated function over form. They’re delightfully utilitarian, but that …

Renard's Retro-Futuristic BMW boxer scrambler

In a sea of identikit customs, we’re always on the hunt for a fresh take on Bavaria’s finest. And this sharply-styled boxer scrambler hits the mark effortlessly.<p>It’s from Estonia’s Renard Speed Shop, and it’s based on one of the more modern boxers—a 2006-model R1200S.<p>Renard’s Andres Uibomae had the …

A KTM we'd ride on any Sunday

Call me old-fashioned, but I reckon dirt bikes have lost the plot in the styling stakes: give me an Elsinore over a CRF any day. And we could devote acres of pixels to the beautiful machines coming out of Spain in the 60s and 70s.<p>So wouldn’t it be great if you could match the performance and …
