This old school Indian Bobber was built by Shane Cooper from Speed Demon Cycles who are based in Queensland, Australia. Shane started customizing his own motorcycles in 1976 and hasn’t stopped since. Over the years he has owned nearly 30 motorcycles, and every one of them has been customized in some way. “You’re looking at the culmination of about 10 months work” explains Shane. “The plan was to build a modern hot rod Bobber. I chose a Harley Softail style frame and springer forks for their timeless looks and ride ability. Not because they suited any type of Indian heritage, purely because I like the look.”

Honda CT110 Customs

Posted on May 4, 2010 by Scott in Moped, Other. 15 comments

The humble Honda CT110 is one of the most reliable bikes on the planet, which is why Postman use them to deliver the mail down here in Australia. They are affectionately known as ‘postie bikes’ and have always had a cult following but we haven’t seen many customized, until now. A company in Melbourne called Postmodern Motorcycles are turning these air-cooled single cylinders into tasty little customs.

This is another unique Flat Tracker that is owned by Flat Track racer and enthusiast Bob Neilson. The Harley Sportster motor is housed in a legendary Trackmaster frame that has been highly modified, stretched 8 inches and all new mounts added. Trackmaster frames were built by Ray Hensley and were synonymous with track racing. Since Ray’s death these frames have been well sought after.

Honda CB200 Café Racer

Posted on May 1, 2010 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. 2 comments

To pay tribute to the Ace Cafe – the birthplace of the café racer, Richard Weslow and his good friend Kurt Schwengle built this beautiful little 1976 CB200 to show at the Rocker Box Motofest in Milwaukee Wisconsin. The guys at Moto-Scoot in Milwaukee helped him with parts and tires, and the folks at T/A Graphics did the checkered tank and the historic ’59’ fender paintwork. Apparently if you look close at the graphics there’s even a picture of Richard’s late grandad who introduced him to motorbikes as a kid. Richard is now in the process of building a 1973 68hp mono shock RD350 for the Rocker Box 2010 which we will do a follow up article when complete. To view more outstanding pics of this vintage café racer visit Richard’s Flickr page.

Fourstar video – Max Schaaf

Posted on April 29, 2010 by Scott in Video. 3 comments

Fourstar Clothing video featuring ‘A Day In the Life’ with Max Schaaf from 4Q Conditioning. It’s great to catch a glimpse of Max cruising the streets on his bike and then bombing some hills on his skateboard. Seeing the old Natas board on the wall of his shop brought back some memories. You can check out more ‘Days in the Life’ at the Fourstar website. [Found on Paul Van Denton]

Pony Express

Posted on April 28, 2010 by Scott in Racer. 3 comments

This beautiful machine named ‘Pony Express’ was built by brilliant Israeli industrial designer Amir Glinik. Unfortunately he didn’t build it with a wrench but in 3D with his computer mouse. Amir’s artwork is some of the best we have seen, his bikes look so real you can almost smell your jeans burning on the pipes.

G-Spot Customs Triumph

Posted on April 27, 2010 by Scott in Bobber, Brat. 2 comments


When I first spotted this green, lean and mean Triumph I thought it must have been built by one of the many custom shops in Japan. I was pleasantly surprised to discover it was built by G-Spot Customs. G-Spot are based in Denver, Colorado and describe themselves as “not your typical run of the mill motorcycle shop. We’re RACERS at heart and will always be racers. As our logo says “not old school, not new school, just pissed off handcrafted motorcycles”. Whatever they are, they know how to build a bike.
