Achtung Baby!

Found this German site all about Ducati’s called Rudi’s TT site.  Rudi has some beautiful bikes on there. Looks like he has been obsessed with Ducati motorbikes since he was a young boy. Heres just a selection of some that caught my eye…

Deus Triton

Posted on April 11, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

Stick a late 60’s Triumph engine 650cc in a Norton wide line Manx frame and you have a cafe racer to die for. Triumph brakes, Norton tank, Dunstall pipes, alloy rims and straight bars. With pin striping on the silver tank all you need is the scarf and goggles..

Trip to Deus

Posted on April 11, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Racer. No Comments

I love going to Deus. I don’t enjoy going there with my ankle biters but hey i had no choice today.

They have so many great bikes in every corner. Discovered this little beauty in one of the corners today (next to the fire extinguisher and water cooler). A Yamaha R5 350cc from the seventies. Makes me want to put on my leathers and take on Mr Stoner.
I love the description (sales pitch) on the the ‘price tag’. If you can’t read it heres what it says…
“350cc 2 stroke bike with disc brake upgrade. Will need very little to get up and running again. Go racing, its fun, it’ll make you a better rider, meet new friends, meet beautiful women, get rich, get bigger muscles, rub shoulders with super stars,…” I’ll take two (not that i need bigger muscles)!

LUXE Motorcycle

Yes, it is another Japanese custom shop. But these guys are doing things a little different. They look like they are really experimenting with tanks, pipes and paint jobs. Pretty distinctive. They are called Luxe Motorcycle Factory and they also have lots of other bikes on their website thats definitely worth checking out. Mostly SR400/500’s and w650’s.

Can’t fake the Flakes

Posted on April 8, 2009 by Scott in Brat, Café Racer. No Comments

These guys are also in Japan and are called Flakes Custom Motorcycles they have some really nice bikes. They also specialize in some crazy paint work on tanks and helmets. I prefer the understated look but I have seen some crazy bikes and clothing in the tokyo streets. Heres one of their more subtle SR400’s… except for that smokin exhaust.

Yesterday… all my troubles seemed so far away

Posted on April 5, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Racer, Scrambler. No Comments

Yesterdays is a place in the Netherlands that specializes in antique motorcycles. They have a range of bikes from 1900’s to the 1950’s. I prefer the 1950’s end like the Nortons and BMW’s but its interesting looking at all the beautiful bikes of the past on their website. For all my American readers they even have some old Harleys and Indians. They do ship worldwide if  you see a bike you have to have…
