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.



Berry Good

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

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

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.



Samurai Choppers

Established in 1992 Okazaki City, Japan, Zero Engineering are a famous custom motorcycle shop from the land of the Rising Sun. But they now have a shop in a Las Vegas. As far as choppers go these are the best I have seen. There are so many nasty bikes on their website to drool over.


Royal Enfield kits

Posted on March 23, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Café Racer, Classic, Scrambler. No Comments

Royal Enfield are selling aftermarket kits on its website now. They look ok, the scrambler kit looks much better than the cafe racer kit – the seat looks too square.  There’s The Cafe Racer, The Scrambler and the Continental…



Gravel Crew

I posted some pics of the Kawasaki 250tr last month. Just found some more on Japanese Custom shop The Gravel Crew website. I really dig their bikes…

I love finding new custom shops especially from Japan (for my japan tour). They are called Presto Customs and their bikes are right up my alley because they specialize in yamaha sr400’s and 500’s. Heres some awesome pics of their work….
