Yamaha SR500 ‘Manxy Racer’ – Addiction Customs

Posted on July 26th, by Andrew in Café Racer. 3 comments

Over the years I have probably built more than 1000 bikes in my head. I look at my two motorcycles sitting in the garage and constantly strip them down then change their seats, tanks, tires, speedo, shocks, exhaust, colour scheme and even their grips. Most of the time I only run with a fraction of the modifications that go through my mind, but I do love thinking about all the possibilities. The latest build from Addiction Customs is the bike Nick has been thinking about for over three years. “Some bikes I think we spend years building in our heads” says Nick. “The Manxy Racer is one of those for me.” So after thinking about this bike for years, Nick couldn’t be happier getting it out of his head and onto the asphalt.

Upon reflection, Maurice was really taken by the polished tank on the Norton

Nortozuki

Posted on October 26th, by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. 1 Comment

This custom bike was built by Ben Rumbelow from Crap Chicken. We don’t know which name is better, Rum Below or Crap Chicken, but usually they both end up making us sick. When we say Ben built this bike, we mean he built it in photoshop. You see Ben is an artist, photographer and designer who also has a love of motorcycles. This creation is named the Nortozuki, obviously by combining a 1962 Norton Manx and a Suzuki together plus many other motorcycle parts. Some other features include a KTM690 stunt running gear, Ohlins rear shocks, Kawasaki Z750 engine from a wrenchmonkees bike and mounted using bolts from a Confederate P120. If you want to see more of Ben’s motorcycle mashups visit his unique gallery.

Stick a late 60′s Triumph engine 650cc in a Norton wide line Manx frame and you have a cafe racer to die for. Triumph brakes, Norton tank, Dunstall pipes, alloy rims and straight bars. With pin striping on the silver tank all you need is the scarf and goggles..
