It’s been quite a while since we’ve had a decent concept bike on this here ol’ Hot Tubes blog and what better way to celebrate a triumphant return than with this insanely cool concept out of the offices of the Art-Tic design studios, located smack bang in middle of downtown Barcelona, Spain. Designed for the the Spanish Marque Ossa, it represents the company’s first non-trials foray since the early 1970s. The brief from Ossa to Art-Tic was the stuff that any bike designer only dares dream about; take a classic race bike from the 1960s and update it for the 21st century. The result? A bike any rider would only dare dream about, and it has a Wacky Races sticker on it. Any cooler, and it’d turn nipples into diamonds at fifty paces. Mujers and hombres, feast your eyes on this.

Discovered the Motorcycle Factory Ajito (their website needs some work) on a Spanish blog called Retro Custom Racer. Ajito is a custom shop in Japan that have made loads of cool sr400’s bobbers but it was this BSA C-11 named Racy King that really stood out. Everything on this bike looks hand made. The seat, brake light and Japanese dragon tank won’t be to everyone’s taste but you have to give credit where credit is due. Ajito has created something truly unique and we look forward to seeing more bikes from these guys in the future.
