Alright, I’ll say it. It’s impossible to hate Harleys. Because no matter what you’re into, someone out there has built a custom ride on a HD platform that’ll flick your switch. Exhibit A: the latest creation by LC Fabrications, an incredible dirt-oriented Sportster build they’ve dubbed the ‘SX1250’…

THE ART OF SMOKING. Sabotage Motorcycle’s Yamaha RD125 Racer

Posted on May 17, 2018 by Andrew in Classic, Racer. No Comments

It’s hard to think of a more Australian story; two young Europeans on motorbikes meet in the car park of Bunnings Hardware and over the obligatory ‘snag’ they form a friendship that brings them together to build a custom motorbike from the remains of a freebie found abandoned and wrecked in Bondi…

YES WE CAN. Chi-Jer’s Can-Am TnT 250 Racer

Posted on February 6, 2018 by Andrew in Classic, Enduro, Racer. 27 comments

The custom bike scene, like pretty much everything else in life, has trends. Right now it seems to be BMW boxers. A while ago, every second bike we received was a CB Honda with Firestones. And back when we first started, SR Yamahas were all the rage. Now these trends come and go, but there’s one thing that we’re pretty damn sure of….

THE WIZARD OF OZZ. A Ducati ST4S Cafe Fighter By Ozz Customs

Posted on November 3, 2017 by Andrew in Café Racer, Streetfighter. 30 comments

Despite being one of the most enlightened countries in the world, the Netherlands doesn’t have a thriving motorcycle scene. I’ve no idea why this is – they could be all too busy getting ripped, getting drunk or falling off pushbikes to really catch the bug. But for whatever reason, Roosendaal-based Ozz Customs breaks the silence yet again with their latest build, a Ducati ST4S touring bike cut down into a mean cafe fighter.

ALMOST FLAT FOUR. Motorworld’s Pristine 1936 Puch P800

Posted on September 20, 2017 by Andrew in Classic. 22 comments

We love featuring bikes from Russia’s Motorworld because each and every one is like a script for the next Indiana Jones movie, just without the aliens and the flying refrigerators. Naturally, this amazing example of pre-war mechanical mastery is no different. One of only a handful of remaining examples, this machine has survived innumerable bullets, bombs and fascist bad guys to emerge looking like it was made only yesterday. Meet the Puch P800.

MOTO PHOTOS: 2017 Art Of Speed Show, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Posted on August 19, 2017 by Andrew in Event. 11 comments

We were lucky enough to be able to attend Malaysia’s 6th annual Art of Speed show in Kuala Lumpur last month. Rumour suggested that it was up their with the best Asian shows. After a long weekend full of local custom culture, food, beer, bona fide moto celebs and even a decent ride into the Malaysian countryside, we were just about ready to open a new Kuala Lumpur office.

WACKY RACES. A Kawasaki 750 H2 Digger by Florida’s FNA Custom Cycles

Posted on July 27, 2017 by Andrew in Classic, Other. 49 comments

Lately we’ve been featuring some custom rides that still manage to be clean, practical motorcycles. Bikes you can pillion on, motorcycles you could take shopping – bikes you could take to meet your mum. But just in case you thought us here at Pipeburn HQ were getting sensible here’s a chopper designed by FNA Custom Cycles run by a 1972 Kawasaki 750 H2 two-stroke, a digger so mental we’re going to get it sectioned.

HELLO MOTO. A Piaggio Ciao Racer from Italy’s OMT Garage

Posted on July 6, 2017 by Andrew in Moped, Racer. 13 comments

It’s not often we go to Italy. And it’s not often we feature mopeds, either. Hell, it’s not often that a bike goes largely unnoticed by our crack team of moto-loving freaks. But that’s exactly the perfect storm type scenario that unfolded on our recent trip to the continent. Last month, Marco and Mario from Italy’s talented OMT Garage flashed us a phone photo of his Deus Bike Build-Off winning ‘Silhouette’ Piaggio Ciao. With our focus on the show’s larger capacity offerings, we clearly let this little green gem slip under our radar. But now, many months later, we’re smitten. And not a moment too soon.

TRIALS & TRIBULATIONS. Rémy Vivien’s 1946 Terrot RGAS

Posted on May 27, 2017 by Andrew in Classic, Enduro, Other. 18 comments

Rémy Vivien builds motorcycles in his spare time out of his workshop in Alsace, France. In recent years he’s caught the trials bug and as a devotee of old machines, he squared up the pre-1965 class. ‘But I didn’t want to buy an existing motorcycle that I had to modify, or assemble any parts from the internet. I wanted to create it from scratch,’ he says. ‘I wanted to make something for me by me. Something different.’ And he certainly has, with this incredible custom trials moto, powered by a 1946 500cc RGAS Terrot engine.

STROKE OF LUCK. Enginethusiast’s Trophy Winning Yamaha RD400 Racer

Posted on April 20, 2017 by Andrew in Classic, Racer. 21 comments

We’ve all done it. Scrolling through eBay or the classifieds and coming across a bike that was a project, 98% complete. The price seems great and hey, how hard could it be to finish that last 2%? Well Anthony Scott, photographer extraordinaire and man behind Enginethusiast found out that the maths doesn’t always add up. At the time he’d never had a 2-stroke and was looking for a new build to take on. So when a Yamaha RD400 came up for sale that had been treated to the beginnings of an “extensive restoration” in his home city of Portland, Oregon he snapped it up. Turns out extensive has a different meaning to some people, but the end result is a trophy winning tarmac and track warrior that Anthony calls a “Stroke of Luck.”
