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

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…

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…

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…

TOP SHELF. Chris Kent’s ‘Obersten Regal’ Honda CX500 Racer

Posted on January 18, 2018 by Andrew in Café Racer, Racer. 21 comments

“Throughout the process they kept saying, ’Man, you aren’t cutting corners. It’s all top shelf!” smiles Iowa’s Chris Kent. And you’d probably be smiling too, if you could lay claim to handiwork like this. “My wife is from a small town in southern Germany, so by the end of the project, the bike was affectionately named ‘Obersten Regal,’ or ‘Top Shelf‘.”

STARLIGHT EXPRESS. Ara Mekhtarian’s Retro ’71 Honda CB450 Cafe Racer

Posted on January 10, 2018 by Andrew in Café Racer, Classic. 23 comments

One of the most awesome aspects of customising bikes is the ability it gives you to make your imaginary moto thoughts a reality. What if BMW had made a bobber in the 1970s? What if Harley had embraced racers instead of cruisers? Or, in Ara Mekhtarian’s case, what if Japan had made a futuristic Honda cafe racer in the early 60s?

FIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND. Origin8or’s Brilliant Honda Rebel Bobber

Posted on January 4, 2018 by Andrew in Bobber. 14 comments

It’d be easy to discount Honda’s new custom-friendly Rebel platform as too little too late from one of Japan’s most conservative manufacturers. Hell, we can almost hear Soichiro San turning in his grave at the thought of anyone but his own beloved Hamamatsu team wrenching on a bike with the company’s full consent…

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…
