Confederate Motor Company

Posted on June 13, 2009 by Scott in Bobber. 2 comments

Confederate are a really special company producing some of the most advanced motorcycles in the world. They limit the production of these bikes so are priced very high. But as the saying goes ‘you get what you pay for’.

The pictured bike is their Limited Edition (only 45 made) C120 Renaissance Fighter. I have to say it looks less ‘renaissance’ and definitely more ‘fighter. It packs 190 mph of performance into its cutting edge carbon fiber, titanium, and aluminum chassis. There’s the 64″ wheelbase, 27″H seat, integrated braking system, lots of high-tech bells and whistles that you would expect for $110,000. Hit this vid if you want to see more.

Falcon Bullet

Posted on June 10, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Classic. No Comments

Falcon Motorcycles describe themselves as marrying the heritage of vintage British motorcycles with the clean aesthetic of modern lines. They have definitely done that with The Bullet which is a custom Triumph motorcycle, that started life as the derelict frame and engine of a 1950 pre-unit Triumph Thunderbird — the bike Marlon Brando rode in “The Wild One”. The concept was inspired by what a Triumph board track racer would have looked like, if indeed Triumph had ever created one. [Thanks to Knucklebusterinc for reminding us of their new site]

Victory Core

Posted on June 8, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Other. 1 Comment

The CORE is a concept motorcycle designed and built by the Victory Motorcycles Industrial Design team to show what a performance cruiser of the future could look like. We like it because it consists of only the essentials: engine, frame, wheels and front suspension – no rear suspension. Oh and a mahogony wood seat (which is a nice balance to the aluminium frame).

Built around a Victory Freedom(r) 106/6 Stage 2 power plant (1731cc), producing 97 horsepower / 113 ft/lb, the CORE is a modern take on an American motorcycle. We like where they’re going with this concept (and its probably best on a highway). Less is more. Lets hope they start producing this unique cruiser.

Deluxie Customs

Posted on May 20, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Brat. No Comments

Deluxie Customs is a Japanese custom shop that doesn’t use SR400’s. Looks like they mainly customize old triumphs and Harleys. The Triumph below is a 1972 T100R Hill-Climber. Looks pretty sweet in the candy red pearl with white seat. Nice work.

Heres some tasty rides from Berry Bads in Japan. I have been drooling on my keyboard looking at some of these bikes. Their blog is worth checking out as well. Lots of tech pics (love the fish pipe) and also some vids of them riding these beautiful machines.

Club Zenith is a Japanese custom shop in Chiba. They specialize in Shovelheads and Choppers but I did find some Sr400’s on their site that look pretty good. If you love your Harleys then definitely check out their gallery

One Little Indian

Posted on April 14, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Classic. No Comments

Another piece of motorcycle history I admired at the Deus shop was this old Indian Scout. I know it’s not a cafe racer but it would have been one hell of a ride back in its day.
In the 1920’s the Scout gained reputation for strength and reliability, which led to the old Indian saying: “You can’t wear out an Indian Scout, or its brother the Indian Chief. They are built like rocks to take hard knocks; it’s the Harleys that cause grief.” Them are fightin words!

LUXE Motorcycle

Posted on April 10, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Brat. 1 Comment

Yes, it is another Japanese custom shop. But these guys are doing things a little different. They look like they are really experimenting with tanks, pipes and paint jobs. Pretty distinctive. They are called Luxe Motorcycle Factory and they also have lots of other bikes on their website thats definitely worth checking out. Mostly SR400/500’s and w650’s.

2009 BMW concept

Posted on April 4, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Café Racer. No Comments

BMW has unveiled a really nice new concept bike called the Lo Rider. One of the goals of this concept is to custom fit man and machine. Going well beyond accessories, the Lo Rider will offer a huge choice of components other than engine and chassis. Each bike can be customed straight from the factory. Great concept, hope they actually make it! Click here if you want to see the vid.
