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.

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 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.

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].
