Heres some tasty rides from Berry Bads in Japan. I have been drooling on my keyboard looking at some of these bikes. Their blog is worth checking out as well. Lots of tech pics (love the fish pipe) and also some vids of them riding these beautiful machines.

Wrap it up… I’ll take it

Posted on May 4, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Other. 1 Comment

I just received some pics of my sr400 before it gets shipped out here. Looks like they have done a good job packing and wrapping. I’m sure there’s a lot that can happen between Japan and Australia. I have heard some horror stories about cars being filled up with water or bikes that look like they have been dropped by forklifts! Anyway, it still looks great at this stage.

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.

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

Posted on March 21, 2009 by Scott in Other, Review. No Comments

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.
