Hidemo Mod Cafe

Posted on August 9, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer. 1 Comment

You don’t find many Japanese custom shops creating HD cafe racers. But Hidemo (stands for Hide Motorcycles) are doing it in exceptional style. We friggin love this Harley. The bike is named the Mod Cafe 3 which is obviously a tribute to the cafe racer and Mod scene in Britian. It even has a Quadrophenia logo. For those that weren’t mods in the 60’s, Quadrophenia is the name of British rock band The Who sixth studio album. Overall it’s a beautiful cafe racer and a great tribute to one of the greatest rock bands the world will ever see.

Led Sled Hardtail

Posted on August 8, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Classic. No Comments
Something a little bit different. We don’t post a lot of Harley’s on Pipeburn. But we thought this HD hardtail was too good to sit idle on the desktop. It’s named the Mercury Pusher and was made by a shop in Ohio, USA called Led Sleds. They specialize in custom HD sportsters and have some amazing projects on their site. This was our pick of the bunch though. Look out for this bike on the cover of Cyclesource Magazine.

R100 BMW Rocker

Posted on August 6, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. 3 comments

Last September Gateway BMW bought a sorry looking 1988 R100RT and Ryan Manley (pictured) was given the job to transform the R100 into a beautiful cafe racer. The silver tank and seat with black frame, wheels and final drive is a great look. We also dig the new exhaust pipes on it. They are EMGO universal Shorty pipes, which apparently can be heard over a Harley. The seat is not finished in this pic but you can see it on the Gateway BMW site, plus all the details on the build. The bike has been sold to some lucky bastard and I’m sure he hasn’t stopped grinning.

Erwin SR500

The much anticipated Chop Cult has launched. The site has a fresh feel and some even fresher bikes. We found this immaculate purple 1979 Erwin SR500. Built by the talented Kim Boyle, we are having trouble taking our eyes off it. We thought the beautiful Blue Moon Kustom tank looked familiar having seen it on their blog recently. For more details on the build and more beautiful pics by Wes Drelleshak check out Chop Cult.

Egli Vincent

Posted on August 4, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Racer. 2 comments

When i saw this Egli Vincent i fell to my knees and asked for forgiveness. Unfortunately only 100 Egli-Vincents were made between 1967 and 1972. Fritz Egli was a specialist frame manufacturer based in Switzerland. Egli-Vincents are now being built in France by Patrick Godet. With permission from Fritz Egli he is the sole manufacturer of new machines under the Egli name. Check out Godet Motorcycles for a history lesson and more pics of his amazing handy work.

British Customs

Posted on August 3, 2009 by Scott in Brat, Café Racer. 5 comments

British Customs in California have parts and accessories for nearly every model of Triumph motorcycle. They sell some great Triumph body accessories like cafe racer seats, fuel tank covers and custom pipes. The black Bonneville below was customised from all their gear. Love the black on black. It looks a little bit cookie cutter at the moment but once you add your own personal touches it could be a really sweet ride. (Would like to see a big dent in that tank as well, looks too new and perfect).

Triumph advertising

Posted on August 1, 2009 by Scott in Other. No Comments

These Triumph Motorcycle billboards were found on Ads of the World. The ads don’t blow us away but they are better than a punch in the head (actually it depends if the ‘punch’ is alcoholic). If you don’t know what a Seismologist is then you should go back to school, or google it like we did. As it turns out it didn’t make the ads any better. We still love the scrambler and kudos to Triumph for manufacturing it again.

Hodaka Cafe Racer

Posted on August 1, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. 3 comments

What a great little Cafe Racer. Hodaka was an American-Japanese company that unfortunately didn’t produce motorcycles for very long. Pretty much between 1960 and mid 1970’s. This is a two stroke, single cylinder 1972 Hodaka Ace 100. We love the rawness of this featherweight cafe racer. Stripped back to the basics like they should be. If you are a Hodaka fan or just want to know more, check out Strickly Hodaka for everything Hodaka.

French lessons

Posted on July 30, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. 1 Comment

We love finding new cafe racer sites. We came across this french site called 299kmh.  Although we can’t speak a word of french (except for ‘cafe’) the pictures on the site speak the universal language of love. Especially these Norton Commandos. Worth starting a war for.

Triumph Hard Ass

Posted on July 30, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Brat, Classic. No Comments

We came across this beautiful looking 1967 T120R Triumph Hard Tail on the very cool Cycle Zombies Blog. The blog has a great mix of motorbikes, surf and skate material (heres where I do a plug for the hopkin skate shop). Anyway back to the Triumph. It is actually for sale for $7,500 which sounds very reasonable considering the work thats gone into it. For more pics and details hit this zombie link.
