LUXE Motorcycle

Yes, it is another Japanese custom shop. But these guys are doing things a little different. They look like they are really experimenting with tanks, pipes and paint jobs. Pretty distinctive. They are called Luxe Motorcycle Factory and they also have lots of other bikes on their website thats definitely worth checking out. Mostly SR400/500’s and w650’s.

Can’t fake the Flakes

Posted on April 8, 2009 by Scott in Brat, Café Racer. No Comments

These guys are also in Japan and are called Flakes Custom Motorcycles they have some really nice bikes. They also specialize in some crazy paint work on tanks and helmets. I prefer the understated look but I have seen some crazy bikes and clothing in the tokyo streets. Heres one of their more subtle SR400’s… except for that smokin exhaust.

Harolds Gear

Harolds gear in Japan make some great vintage looking jackets and gloves. Theres more on their website if you like what you see. I love their tag line on the website “The goods always belong to vintage spirit”..It doesn’t really make sense but I understand it. Deus stock their leather gloves as well.

A mate of mine recently purchased a Honda cd250. I had to do a google search to refresh my memory when he told me. Then I saw a shot of a Honda CD250 by Heiwa Motorcycles in Hiroshima which blew me away (excuse the pun). Check it out, it is the brown one below. Heiwa have so many nice bikes on their site I was frothing at the mouth like a rabid dog. Heres just a taste of their bikes…

Wow, these bikes are sweet. Ritmo-Sereno is a japanese custom bike shop turning vintage european bikes into awesome cafe racers. Its not often you see many european cafe racers in japan. Not with all the Yamaha’s and Kawasaki’s over there. They also have a great collection of used bikes on their website. Helps if you can read Japanese though. Toire wa doko desu ka?
