Buying a brand new motorcycle is a big decision. But to then hand it over to be chopped up for modification means you’ve gotta ask yourself one question: “Do you feel lucky?” Well, do ya, punk? With a resounding ‘yes,’ Motoplex of Argentina asked Lucky Customs for a bike. Here’s what they got…


APEX PREDATOR. Macco Motor’s ‘Great White’ BMW R100RS Cafe Racer

Posted on March 20, 2018 by Andrew in Café Racer, Classic, Racer. No Comments

Reviving clapped-out road bikes from sheds and garages is all fine and good, but spare a thought for the old racers of years gone by. More likely to end life upside down than right-side up – and probably on fire – it’s a tough gig to survive without some serious war wounds. So when Spain’s Macco Motors had a customer bring them not one but two BMW R100RS ex-racers…


HIGH & MIGHTY. ATS Paris’s ‘Thirtieth Story’ Harley Street Bob

Posted on March 6, 2018 by Andrew in Bobber, Racer. No Comments

When you’re one of France’s oldest original-owner Harley-Davidson dealers and the company announces a custom competition entitled ‘Battle of the Kings,’ you better not take your entry lightly. With 30 years of history and a dealership smack bang in the middle of the nation’s capital, ATS Paris knew they had much to lose. So they made this…


AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR. Chris Zahner’s Carbon Kawasaki EX250 Racer

Posted on March 1, 2018 by Andrew in Racer. No Comments

Chicago’s Chris Zahner might be a bartender, but I think he’s a magician. Look at his latest bike – a 1987 Kawasaki Ninja 250 – the motorcycle a generation of boy racers learnt to ride on. They were dropped in car parks, dumped in corners and were so abused they should have been taken into government care…


LET’S-A GO! H Garage’s Ducati 900SS ‘Luigi’ Neo-Racer

Overthinking things can be a death wish for any custom project. You spend all your energy on the creative part of the build and by the time you have to roll your sleeves up and get your hands dirty, you’re kind of over it. Here’s a hot tip for you: it doesn’t matter how long you spend in Photoshop, it won’t get the bike built…


WINNING BY A HEAD. WalzWerk’s Nolan Ducati SportClassic Cafe Racer

Posted on February 22, 2018 by Andrew in Café Racer, Racer. No Comments

Chances are if you’re into custom motorcycles and have a deep love for bikes then you spend more money on them than most people consider reasonable. Call it crazy, but this is our culture and once the need for speed is in your veins, digs its hooks in deep, you’re addicted…


ROARING FORTIES. Motorworld’s Mint 1928 BMW R47

Posted on February 21, 2018 by Andrew in Classic, Racer. No Comments

Ever noticed how the impossible seems simple once you’ve already done it? BMW’s creation of their very first bike, the R32, seems like a ludicrous feat even 100 years later. Hell, they are still using the same basic layout today. But for designer Max Friz and the rest of the company’s engineers, that hard work had just started…


HIGH STAKES. Tattoo Custom’s ‘Vampire Slayer’ Suzuki GN400 Cafe Racer

Posted on February 15, 2018 by Andrew in Café Racer, Racer. No Comments

North Carolina’s Tattoo Custom Motorcycles have many strings to their bow. Out the front of their shop they’re an advertising company, working with a wide range of clientele. But their fearless leader, Rudy Banny, also has a healthily unhealthy passion for motorcycles…


SLIM SHADY. Tamarit’s ‘Sombra’ Triumph Thruxton Racer

Posted on February 14, 2018 by Andrew in Café Racer, Racer. No Comments

There’s a reason why Salvador Dali didn’t quit painting in this thirties to take up mime. Similarly, Jorge Lorenzo isn’t about to become a violinist and Hernando Cortez didn’t decide to throw it all in and make baskets a few days before he claimed the Americas. The moral of the story here is that doing anything great takes time…


KEEPING UP WITH THE ’SMITHS. Craig Rodsmith’s Turbo Moto Guzzi V9

Posted on February 12, 2018 by Andrew in Café Racer, Racer. No Comments

We’ve always been of the opinion that if an Aussie puts their mind to something, one way or another it will happen. And Victorian boy Craig Rodsmith is living, breathing, punk rocking proof that this is true…
