Alright, I’ll say it. It’s impossible to hate Harleys. Because no matter what you’re into, someone out there has built a custom ride on a HD platform that’ll flick your switch. Exhibit A: the latest creation by LC Fabrications, an incredible dirt-oriented Sportster build they’ve dubbed the ‘SX1250’…

IF 9 WAS 6. Kingston Custom’s ‘SIXDAYS’ R nineT Enduro

Posted on April 20, 2018 by Andrew in Enduro, Scrambler. No Comments

We at Pipeburn love bombastic builds as much as the next bunch of motorcycle nuts. We love the rolling pieces of art. Or sometimes, at all. We still get it. But the other option is truly appealing – a build that can be fired up and ridden every day…

FASTER PUSSYCAT. A Reverse Restomod BMW from Two Cats Garage & Better Boxer Co.

Posted on March 7, 2018 by Andrew in Classic, Enduro, Scrambler. No Comments

“It’s hard to say what style the bike is. Maybe a reverse restomod?” It’s a seemingly innocuous statement, but New Zealand’s Mike Dobson and his Two Cats Garage instantly had us hooked. Most of us will know what a restomod is, but a reverse restomod? Well, it’s taking a modern bike with all the bells and whistles…

YES WE CAN. Chi-Jer’s Can-Am TnT 250 Racer

Posted on February 6, 2018 by Andrew in Classic, Enduro, Racer. 27 comments

The custom bike scene, like pretty much everything else in life, has trends. Right now it seems to be BMW boxers. A while ago, every second bike we received was a CB Honda with Firestones. And back when we first started, SR Yamahas were all the rage. Now these trends come and go, but there’s one thing that we’re pretty damn sure of….

TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER FLY. A ‘Great Escape’ Honda CM400 Tracker from Poland’s T. Jasin Motorcycles

Posted on January 30, 2018 by Andrew in Classic, Enduro, Tracker. 15 comments

The Iron Curtain. The Cold War. The USA v the USSR. The 60s and 70s were tough years for Eastern Europe. With hardline communism ruling the roost and the Nazi occupation still fresh in most people’s minds, it’s little wonder that a movie like Steve McQueen’s The Great Escape with its Polish locations and flying moto finale, might have struck a chord with the locals…

TRIALS & TRANSFORMATIONS. BAAK Motocyclette’s ‘1960’ Royal Enfield Trials Racer

Posted on December 12, 2017 by Andrew in Classic, Enduro. 16 comments

Old motorcycles, while they may look like heaven in the fancy studio shots you’ll often see, can be right little bastards in the flesh. Their exorbitant cost, oil leaks, starting issues and inexplicable breakdowns are enough to challenge even the most even-tempered of riders…

KIDS BEHAVING RADLY. Clockwork’s Genre-Defying BMW R100 Enduro Brat

Listen to any good rock song from across the ages and that rhythmic pulse that you tap your foot to is provided by the bass player. Often maligned, rarely the charismatic front man, what they provide is the reliable foundation for every great song and band…

HOG WILD. Gasser Customs Takes A Harley Sportster 1200 Camping

Posted on September 29, 2017 by Andrew in Enduro. 17 comments

Ever since Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman used BMW GS motorcycles to tackle their epic journeys around the world the Adventure bike category has been selling strong. Brands as diverse as Royal Enfield to prestige marque MV Agusta have been getting in on the act but the BMW remains the gold standard. However with the GS and other major challengers now coming with things like GPS, stability control, a quick-shifter and other technological wizardry it seems to be less adventure and more twee Sunday ride. So to get back to the gritty survival spirit, California’s Gasser Customs has built this Baja beast for the intrepid explorer. It’s a 2005 Harley Sportster 1200 that will take you anywhere, kick sand in the oppositions eyes and rightfully earns the name ‘Adventure’.

AFRICAN OFFENSIVE. XTR Pepo’s ‘RAID’ BMW R NineT Dakar

Posted on September 5, 2017 by Andrew in Enduro. 12 comments

With the success of the original BMW R nineT you can’t blame the big Bavarian for wanting to cash in on the success of the model. To do that they’ve increased the line up to five variants all designed to appeal to various sectors of the market. While many categories enable them to get away with cosmetic changes, the desire to pay homage to the original all-terrain long-distance enduro G/S requires a whole lot more. Sadly the R nineT Urban G/S doesn’t quite tick the box with urban being the operative word. But never fear, Spain’s XTR Pepo is here, with a knockout 2016 R nineT that drops the urban pretence and delivers an authentic Paris-Dakar race replica known as RAID.

SUSHI ‘TACO. A Delicioso Honda CB400 Tracker by T. Jasin Motorcycles

Posted on July 24, 2017 by Andrew in Enduro, Tracker. 20 comments

Hot on the heels of their CB250 from a few weeks ago, Poland’s T. Jasin Motorcycles have just rocked up with another killer Honda – this time it’s an ‘83 CB400 that’s clearly just been to Spain for its summer holidays. Deciding that the Bultaco MX livery was the perfect vibe for this Comstar’d and knobby’d little champ, the Japan-loving Jasin brothers have left the thing co-branded to add a little frisson to the mix. And boy, don’t they mix well?
