Honda CL450 by Lossa Engineering

I’m quite partial to adventure tourers spruced up with gear from the likes of Touratech.

But Jay LaRossa of Lossa Engineering begs to differ, and he’s built the bike to prove it.<p>This is …

BMW R100S by Deus

You don’t see many 1970s BMW R-series customs in the USA. But this very sharp R100S cafe racer should prompt a few searches for old airheads on eBay.

Moto Guzzi V65 by El Solitario

For a pursuit that is all about freedom and individuality, the world of custom motorcycles can be a strangely serious business. Are those tires good enough? It’s a hardtail, it can’t possibly handle. What, only 50 bhp pulling 200 kilos? Like audiophiles who’ve become so obsessed with hi-fi …
