LUCKY PUNK. A Moto Guzzi V7 Racer from Lucky Customs

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

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…

WHACKING DAY. Lucky Custom’s ‘Cobra 2’ Honda XR250 Tracker

Posted on February 1, 2018 by Andrew in Tracker. 21 comments

Now we all agree that peaky inline fours and huge rumbling v-twins are fantastic. But some of our favourite bikes to come out of the custom scene are small, fun little runabouts that can belt through traffic and jump gutters and terrify pedestrians…

There is something about the bond between childhood best friends that is impossible to break and for many, they’re the greatest years of life. You don’t need much, just the free days of the holidays, that one best friend and the smallest things will entertain you…

RISE OF THE APES. Lucky Custom‘s ‘De Lujo’ Honda Dax Bobber

Posted on December 11, 2017 by Andrew in Bobber, Classic. 21 comments

If there’s one thing that Argentina’s Lucky Customs should be known for, it’s their brain frying, jaw dropping, eye watering diversity. From space-inspired racers to off-road beasts to 1950s salt racers, these guys seem to be going out of their way not to build the same bike twice…

SNAKES AND LATTICE. The ‘Cobra’ Honda XR250 from Argentina’s Lucky Customs

‘Chuckable’. It’s what we call bikes in England and Down Under that are super easy to throw around on the road. You might call them lithe, lightweight or manoeuvrable. It’s what you get when you start with something that’s already pretty minimal and push it even further…

STRATOSPHERIC. A Rally-Inspired Ducati Monster From Vida Bandida.

Posted on October 31, 2017 by Andrew in Other, Racer, Scrambler, Tracker. 14 comments

Yesterday we had an 80s endurance cafe racer and today it’s rally cars that are setting the scene. But not just any rally car; it’s arguably the rally car. The Lancia Stratos HF with its Ferrari V6. Argentina’s Vida Bandida are, like many of their country folk, huge rally fans. And to pay tribute to the Lancia and rally’s Group B golden age of the 70s and 80s, they’ve built an perfectly Italian tribute in the form of this dirt-eating Ducati Monster.

BACK IN BLACK. Lucky Customs’ ‘Rock‘n’Rolla’ Evo Harley Bobber

Posted on September 23, 2017 by Andrew in Bobber, Chopper. 16 comments

Argentina’s Lucky Customs have done more for 1980’s AMF Harley Davidson than anyone else in recent years. A few months back we ran a show-stopping turbo salt racer from the Cordoba-based business and now they’ve followed up with this spectacular blacked-out 1984 Evo chopper dubbed ‘Rock’n’Rolla’.

ALTER EVO. A Harley Turbo Salt Racer by Argentina’s Lucky Custom

Posted on May 19, 2017 by Andrew in Board Tracker, Bobber, Racer. 23 comments

It’s easy to parrot the line ‘I don’t like Harleys’. It’s an simple trap to fall into, until you realise the huge selection of amazing customs that have been crafted out of Milwaukee’s finest. There’s cafe racers, bobbers, choppers and flat trackers aplenty but my personal favourite has to be the rarely seen board tracker style. And here’s the best goddamn one you’ll find – a stunning turbocharged Harley Evo-engined special crafted by Argentina’s Lucky Custom.

THUG LIFE. A BMW R nineT Tracker from Argentina’s Vida Bandida

Posted on May 1, 2017 by Andrew in Tracker. 10 comments

It seems that BMW’s R nineT has become the modern equivalent of Yamaha’s SR500 in its never-ending ability to look good customised. Whether it be a cafe racer, enduro, bobber, or some other beautiful creation, the boxer from Bavaria seems to have a genetic resistance to looking bad. It’s also become a rite of passage for shops looking to hit the big time; if you can take on a 9T and make a splash, it seems like your going places. And needless to say that tonight’s bike is just that. Here’s Argentina’s Vida Bandida with their new R nineT tracker they call ‘The Bandit’.

‘Sake’ Yamaha RD400 – Lucky Custom

If motorcycles have earned the reputation as “widow-makers” then two motorcycles in particular can lay claim to being the most lethal assassins. Both are ’70s Japanese bikes from the golden age of two-strokes; the Kawasaki H2 750 is the Ivan Drago-style killer that will get right in your face and club you to death. But it’s the Yamaha RD400 that takes on the true Assassin’s creed, dispatching of its kill in a millisecond without the prey ever having seen what was coming. In Argentina, the land of bike builder extraordinaire and founder of Lucky Custom, Lucas Layum, the RD400 has been known since its birth as “la Mata Hombre”, quite literally “the Man Killer”. But such is the allure of the RD and its intoxicating two-stroke engine, that men will risk death to ride them and when they look this good it’s easy to see why.
