Can’t fake the Flakes

Posted on April 8, 2009 by Scott in Brat, Café Racer. No Comments

These guys are also in Japan and are called Flakes Custom Motorcycles they have some really nice bikes. They also specialize in some crazy paint work on tanks and helmets. I prefer the understated look but I have seen some crazy bikes and clothing in the tokyo streets. Heres one of their more subtle SR400’s… except for that smokin exhaust.

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.

2009 Triumph Thruxton

Posted on March 27, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer. No Comments

This is obviously based on the Thruxton racing bikes of the 60’s that lead to the huge Cafe Racer Revolution. They have done a great job keeping close to the original. Even hiding the fuel injection system in a pair of carburetors so it retains Thruxton’s legendary racing look.

I have read lots of great reviews of this bike and if i had a bit more cash I would definitely make some room in the garage for it.

This Frenchman Jean Francois Vicente is a man of my own heart. After riding ducati’s and Velocette thruxton he wanted something a bit more reliable and then discovered yamaha sr500’s. The rest is history. Now he owns VD Classic that specialises in custom Yamaha SR500’s and lots of other classic bikes. Heres a selection of Sr500’s from his gallery… I love that SR scrambler…
