1979 BMW R100/7 Blitz Street Tracker

Posted on March 24, 2011 by Scott in Brat, Tracker. 57 comments

A couple of months ago we featured a beautifully shot video of some French gentleman from Blitz Motorcycles in Paris cruising the country roads of France. The video caused quite a commotion with most people liking it, but we also had our fair share of haters — but as they say in France, “such is life.” Well, hopefully their latest creation, this rough and raw BMW street tracker will show you that these guys aren’t a “bunch of douche bag hipsters” but actually a group of quite talented builders putting out some really impressive bikes.

“Madame Guzzi” Boardtracker

Posted on November 23, 2010 by Andrew in Bobber, Classic, Tracker. 41 comments

What were you doing with your life in your late teens? If you were anything like me you were flunking out of university, getting right-royally wasted, living at home and you more than likely hadn’t even considered riding a motorbike. At least, not legally. Cough. So what if I were to tell you that the creator of the amazing Moto Guzzi you see above is only a mere 20 years old and that this is in fact the third custom bike he’s built? Well, it’s with gritted teeth and a slightly awkward, jealous smile that I’d like to introduce you to Adam Nestor, creator of this Ferrari blue wonder called “Madame Guzzi”.

1972 CL350 Brat-Tracker

Posted on October 13, 2010 by Scott in Brat, Classic, Tracker. 7 comments

A year ago we featured another Honda CL350 built by Jonathon Wood (AKA Woody), which was one of our favourite builds of 2009. Instead of creating another cafe racer, this time Woody created what he calls a ‘Brat Tracker’. “It’s basically a bratstyle and street-tracker inspired motorcycle” says Woody. This latest project was based on a “super clean” 1972 CL350 that he picked up a little while ago.

Honda NX650 Street Tracker

Posted on September 15, 2010 by Scott in Tracker. 16 comments

An amazing ‘before and after’ shot can do wonders shifting products. Just think of all the diet products that are sold by showing a photo of a fat person and right next to it the same person now slim with an amazing six pack. Sometimes the improvement is so incredible you can’t believe the transformation. It’s similar to when I first laid eyes on this beautiful looking street tracker – it was hard to believe it came from a beat-up 1992 Honda Dominator. Luckily there’s people like Andrew Greenland, who didn’t see an out of shape body but a hot street tracker waiting to get out.

1973 Yamaha RD250 Street Tracker

Posted on September 9, 2010 by Scott in Classic, Tracker, Uncategorized. 7 comments

This RD250 caught my eye after recently winning the coveted Do The Ton Bike of the Month. The bike hadn’t run for 20 years when Ken Stout bought it as part of a package deal with two 60’s Honda Superhawks. Being a design engineer in the motorcycle/powersport industry it didn’t take him long to get it going. “After cleaning the carbs, new fuel line, and some gas, she fired right up” Ken said. Ken wanted to do something special with the bike and decided to turn it into a street tracker.

1972 Honda XL250

Larry Pearson is no newcomer to the pages of Pipeburn. First we featured his beautiful CB550, then his Wes Cooley GS1000S (which is about to appear in Cycle World) and now this striking Honda XL250. “A co-worker of mine had this dilapidated ’72 Honda XL250 that he used as a woods bike for 20 years” said Larry. “He stripped it down, put a set of knobby tires on it and just rode it occasionally. It had been bored out to a 305cc and a mild cam installed by a previous owner.” For whatever reason it sat outside for about 5 years unused, until it was offered to Larry for free – just to see if he could do something with it. “I didn’t really have any need for a dirt bike, but when he told me about the engine and how well it ran, I went over for a look. Even after sitting outside for all those years, and with bad gas in the tank, it fired right up after about 5 kicks!.” Larry decided to haul it home. It was in terrible shape, with rust everywhere, dented tank, broken fenders, bent exhaust and anything else you can think of. Wondering what to do, Larry came up with the idea to make a retro motard.

It’s not every day you see a Yamaha boardtracker – especially one of this calibre. It wasn’t long ago that this one of a kind XS650 created a lot of attention when featured on XS650Chopper. Built by the talented Nick Stringer from Metal Head Fabrication in California, it recently picked up Iron Works Bar Hopper 1st place at the LA Calendar Motorcycle show.

The idea to turn his SR500 into a street tracker came to Italian Andrea Costantini after viewing some photos of a Kim Boyle creation. “I searched the bike spasmodically, because I loved the mechanics” he says. Luckily for Andrea his father is a mechanical engineer and has a small workshop at home with a horizontal lathe, a vertical mill and a grinding wheel. So with the help of his Dad, Andrea went about creating his dream street tracker.

This is another unique Flat Tracker that is owned by Flat Track racer and enthusiast Bob Neilson. The Harley Sportster motor is housed in a legendary Trackmaster frame that has been highly modified, stretched 8 inches and all new mounts added. Trackmaster frames were built by Ray Hensley and were synonymous with track racing. Since Ray’s death these frames have been well sought after.

BSA Goldstar Flat Tracker

Posted on March 28, 2010 by Scott in Tracker. 1 Comment

Someone wiser than me once said “Ask and Thou Shall Receive“, I asked for your bikes and I did receive. We’ll start with this mouthwatering BSA Gold Star which was originally a long time racer ridden by Ramon ‘Porky’ Perez from Northern California. After he was injured several years ago he sold off most of his Gold Star racers including this one. It was then purchased by flat track legend Tom Horton, who was a former pro National, sporting the number 55. The bike was stripped down and the motor was sent to Matt Hilgenburg from Speed & Sport in Northern California for a complete rebuild to race specs.
