Triumph Hard Ass

Posted on July 30, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Brat, Classic. No Comments

We came across this beautiful looking 1967 T120R Triumph Hard Tail on the very cool Cycle Zombies Blog. The blog has a great mix of motorbikes, surf and skate material (heres where I do a plug for the hopkin skate shop). Anyway back to the Triumph. It is actually for sale for $7,500 which sounds very reasonable considering the work thats gone into it. For more pics and details hit this zombie link.

Drag Star Cafe Racer

Posted on July 20, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Café Racer. 2 comments

This is a conversion of a 1998 Yamaha XVS 650 Drag Star (Star V Star 650 in the US) called the Beachstar. It’s been described as a cross between a cafe racer and a board tracker. With or without the 60’s looking fairing this bike looks awesome. The Beachstar was built by a German by the name of Mario Baer. Baer needed only one summer to modify this old 1998 Yamaha Drag Star, working only in the evenings. Thats impressive work. It’s not just a show bike either, it’s also a commuter. He rides the Beachstar to work nearly every day and last year the Beachstar won some impressive shows including the world-renowned 2008 Intermot show in Cologne. We are looking forward to seeing Baer’s next project which he describes as “Hmmm…something exceptionally spectacular with a huge rear wheel and a small front wheel. Something completely crazy!”.

Speer Motorcycles

Posted on July 13, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Café Racer. 5 comments

We love discovering custom shops in our own backyard. These guys are called Speer Motorcycles and are based in Melbourne, Australia. They do a mixture of servicing, restoring and customizing of vintage, unique and performance bikes. Here’s two of their latest projects, the first is a Suzuki T500 cafe racer. The second is a BSA B31 250cc hard tail. Both look like they were built to ride. Check out Speers Blog if you want to see more from this shop. [Thanks to MC Trader for finding this one]

Liquid Chrome

Posted on July 9, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Classic. No Comments

Japanese custom motorcycle builder Chicara Nagata is in a league of his own. He doesn’t call his bikes motorcycles, he calls them pieces of art. Which is why the Ippodo Gallery in NYC has had an exhibition recently showing his amazing chrome bikes. Chicara has won numerous awards for his custom motorcycles, which take him over 7000 hrs to build. This level of craftsmanship has its price, with most of his bikes selling for around $1 million – ouch. Hit this video to see Chicara talk about his amazing masterpieces.

Custom Jump

It’s been way too long since I’ve mentioned a Japanese Custom shop. Heres one called Custom Jump from Kyushu. They specialize in TW200, TW225’s and of course the favourite SR400. They have created some crazy TW’s and this is just a taste. Check their gallery to see more, including an American Chopper styled TW225.

Deus W650 Bobber

Posted on June 22, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Café Racer. 2 comments

I just love this Deus W650 Swing Bobber. It puts the schwing back in swing bobber. If i took it to a swinger party I could not throw the keys in the hat, even if another hottie was ready for a kick start. No, not even some slutty, sexy, eurotrash Triumph kneel and bobber that was begging for a ride.

Moto Galore

Posted on June 19, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Classic. 4 comments

Saw this pic on Joes Sign Shop. It’s a beautiful 1968 Triumph T100 R by Motor Galore . Kenneth from Motor Galore was born in Germany in 1965. He moved to the states to get away from Nazi rule and find a new life (we thank you for finding that life or else we wouldn’t see these cool bikes). As an accomplished metal artist extraordinare, his passion for motorcycles led him to Portland, Oregon. He celebrates MotoGalore with a yearly event “Hot Dogs, Hot Babes & Hot Bikes”. That sounds like the perfect combination.

Rideable Art

Posted on June 17, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Classic. 1 Comment

When i first saw these bikes from Helrich Custom Cycles I couldn’t stop smiling. They really are pieces of rideable art. Their website is still work in progress but it’s obvious Dave is spending more time making beautiful bikes and less time learning HTML…. the way it should be.

Check out his gallery for the whole art collection its unbelievable… almost as unbelievable as this guy.

Lost Knuckles

We have been looking at all the winners from the European Championship of Custom Bike building. Most of them are choppers but one classic caught our eye. It is a 1934 Harley Davidson Knucklehead that has been totally rebuilt by a German shop called Classic Bikes (doesn’t sound very German). We love how they have kept the heart and soul of this classic. For more pics and details click here.

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.
