DIRTY DUET. Titan’s Twin Honda SLR650 Trackers

Posted on June 13, 2018 by Andrew in Tracker. No Comments

It’s interesting to think that before Henry Ford left his mark on automotive manufacturing, most commercial vehicles were still made by hand. In other words, everyone owned a custom. Nowadays, factory vehicles are pretty much exact replicas of each other. But what if a custom shop met you somewhere in the middle?

JACKPOT FOUR-POT. NCT’s Winning Honda CB500F Cafe Racer

Posted on June 7, 2018 by Andrew in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

NCT Motorcycles are a clever bunch of guys. We know that they can build a mean moto, as their folio of stripped-back custom bikes shows. But what we didn’t realise is how good they are at a bit of self promotion. How? Well, play your cards right and this sweet little CB could be yours…

FAIR WEATHER FIEND. Vagabund’s ‘V08’ BMW R80RT Summer Brat

Posted on April 11, 2018 by Andrew in Brat. No Comments

You know you’ve probably got a custom bike problem when you start ordering builds based on weather. And for Vagabund’s Paul and Phil, that’s exactly what their latest customer has gone and done. They were distraught by the fact that their summer riding options didn’t include a fenderless BMW brat. Until now…

A VIEW TO A THRILL. NCT’s ‘Spectre’ BMW R1100S Scrambler

Posted on March 28, 2018 by Andrew in Scrambler. No Comments

With original late 70s and early 80s BMW twins now becoming as rare as first edition Superman comics, Tasmanian Tigers or signed copies of the Gutenberg bible, builders are increasingly looking to 90s and noughties bikes as custom platforms. Take the very millennial BMW R1100S, for instance…

BACKWARDS TO VICTORY. Titan’s Reverse Head Honda CB350 Racer

Posted on January 26, 2018 by Andrew in Classic, Racer. 46 comments

When Austria’s Titan Motorcycles first set up a workshop, they stuffed their storage area with a collection of rusted-out motos they’d collected from the 70’s and 80’s. And in the years since they’ve been wandering through, vulture-like, picking interesting bits off for use in their custom builds…

CHEQUERED PAST. Titan’s Very Seasoned BMW R80RT Endurance Racer

Posted on October 31, 2017 by Andrew in Café Racer, Racer. 27 comments

Here’s a movie idea. A BMW that’s owned by the chief of police gets purchased by a somewhat suspect hemp farmer who uses it for ‘deliveries’. It’s then customised by a bunch of Austrian bike freaks and turned into an endurance racer for a wealthy goldsmith. Too far-fetched to be believable? Think again, because that’s the gospel truth when it comes to the history of Titan Motorcycles’ latest build, a BMW R80RT endurance racer.

REVEL IN THE DETAILS. NCT’s Immaculate Moto Guzzi T5 Street Scrambler

Posted on October 16, 2017 by Andrew in Brat, Scrambler. 13 comments

Your average motorcycle is made up of around 2000 individual parts. And any customiser worth their salt will have to consider each and every one of those before they get to a finished custom bike. Some will gloss over these details, but we think it’s fair to say that Austria’s David Widmann and his NCT Motorcycles is not one of those builders. And with the release of this Moto Guzzi T5, his latest build, he’s proven it. Like a bit of attention to detail in your customs? You’ve got it.

ALMOST FLAT FOUR. Motorworld’s Pristine 1936 Puch P800

Posted on September 20, 2017 by Andrew in Classic. 22 comments

We love featuring bikes from Russia’s Motorworld because each and every one is like a script for the next Indiana Jones movie, just without the aliens and the flying refrigerators. Naturally, this amazing example of pre-war mechanical mastery is no different. One of only a handful of remaining examples, this machine has survived innumerable bullets, bombs and fascist bad guys to emerge looking like it was made only yesterday. Meet the Puch P800.

TOWARDS THE LIGHT. A Moto Morini Corsaro ‘Superleggera’ from Titan Motorcycles

Posted on June 22, 2017 by Andrew in Racer. 4 comments

Despite the incredible motorcycles that have been coming out of Italy for more than a hundred years, even the biggest of manufacturers has gone through financial turmoil. Perhaps none more so than Moto Morini, who seem to have had more bankruptcies than Donald Trump. Things got so bad, the company nearly fell into the hands of Silvio Berlusconi’s Brother. But despite all of the financial woes, when the company has been on its feet it’s produced some incredible machines. Which is why fans of all things two wheels, Michael and Tom of Austria’s Titan Motorcycles had a desire to build a custom Morini to do the brand justice. Based on a 2007 Moto Morini Corsaro it’s a stripped down urban racer for the cafe set with a need for speed that earns it the name ‘Superleggera’, or ‘Superlight’.

AUSTRO-ITALIAN STALLION. NCT’s Hot Moto Guzzi 850 T4 Brat Cafe

Posted on May 19, 2017 by Andrew in Brat, Café Racer, Classic. 10 comments

In the earliest days of the motorcycle the engine was everything. Many of the frames were indistinguishable from a bicycle, it was all about the power plant. Inventors tried steam, diesel, electricity and petrol to make their motors rev and experimented with a host of technologies to improve power and reliability. These days you can barely distinguish one new engine from another, apart from the number of cylinders and the cosmetic dress ups. But David Widmann and his crew from NCT Motorcycles in the Austrian Alps take the mechanical side of things very seriously. For one lucky customer they’ve turned a 1982 Moto Guzzi 850 T4 into a true classic motorcycle. Its looks are great, but it’s the engine that’s the centerfold.
