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.

Posted on April 20, 2010 by Scott in Other, Review. 8 comments

Vanson have been around for donkey’s years (over 30 years) and hold the distinction of being the largest motorcycle leather manufacturer in the United States. This outstanding Vanson ‘Triton’ Jacket is obviously named after the British classic Cafe Racer that combines the engine of a Triumph and the featherbed frame of a Norton to create the ulimate motorcycle. But the jacket also has a Scottish influence, with the Scott’s claiming to have invented waxed cotton canvas and also Royal Stewart tartan which forms the lining of this first-class jacket. Here’s what Vanson say about their jacket “From the first second that you put this jacket on, you’ll feel the quality of its components and manufacturing. The heavyweight waxwear fabric has a solid heft and a great waxy drape. The snaps and zippers are substantial and work smoothly. Vanson is respected worldwide for the strength of their jackets and this one is no exception. You’ll appreciate it more year after year as it ages and gains more character”. To see more pics or to buy one of these old school jackets visit the Epaulet Shop. [A note to Vanson if you happen to read this, please redesign your website].

Puch Magnum

Posted on April 15, 2010 by Scott in Moped. 9 comments

Most people probably don’t know much about Puch Motorcycles but they happen to be one of the oldest manufacturers on the planet. Founded in 1889 in Austria they didn’t start producing motorcycles until the early 1900’s. Then 100 years after it was founded the Puch motorcycle company was sold to Piaggio, maker of the Vespa, who apparently still produce bikes under the name “Puch”. The pictured bike is technically a moped but there’s no denying it has some really nice cafe racer aesthetics.
