SHOULDERS OF GIANTS. Vagabund’s Next Level BMW R100R Roadster

Posted on November 14, 2018 by Andrew in Brat, Classic, Roadster. No Comments

Somehow in all the hype and limelight that surrounds custom bikes, the customer often gets lost. While more than a few bikes we feature on these pages are labors of love that are entirely funded, made and ridden by the builders themselves, a fair whack of them are funded by regular Joes like you or I…

BIRD OF PRAY. Titan’s ‘Blue Falcon’ Yamaha MT-01 Dirtfighter

Posted on October 19, 2018 by Andrew in Scrambler, Streetfighter. No Comments

Austria’s Titan Motorcycles make all manner of madness. They turn cylinder heads backwards, fabricate parts from scratch and tackle every style of build. They do amazing one-of-a-kind customs and ultra clean restomods. We adore everything the mad pair of Michael Siebenhofer and Tom Possod do…

Posted on July 13, 2018 by Andrew in Classic, Enduro. No Comments

The BMW GS just might be the world’s most versatile go-anywhere moto machine. So it makes perfect sense that if you’re an Enduro riding instructor it’s the sort of machine that’s right up your alley, but wanting a custom classic example where do you turn? The answer is NCT…

DIRTY DUET. Titan’s Twin Honda SLR650 Trackers

Posted on June 13, 2018 by Andrew in Tracker. No Comments

It’s interesting to think that before Henry Ford left his mark on automotive manufacturing, most commercial vehicles were still made by hand. In other words, everyone owned a custom. Nowadays, factory vehicles are pretty much exact replicas of each other. But what if a custom shop met you somewhere in the middle?

JACKPOT FOUR-POT. NCT’s Winning Honda CB500F Cafe Racer

Posted on June 7, 2018 by Andrew in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

NCT Motorcycles are a clever bunch of guys. We know that they can build a mean moto, as their folio of stripped-back custom bikes shows. But what we didn’t realise is how good they are at a bit of self promotion. How? Well, play your cards right and this sweet little CB could be yours…

FAIR WEATHER FIEND. Vagabund’s ‘V08’ BMW R80RT Summer Brat

Posted on April 11, 2018 by Andrew in Brat. No Comments

You know you’ve probably got a custom bike problem when you start ordering builds based on weather. And for Vagabund’s Paul and Phil, that’s exactly what their latest customer has gone and done. They were distraught by the fact that their summer riding options didn’t include a fenderless BMW brat. Until now…

A VIEW TO A THRILL. NCT’s ‘Spectre’ BMW R1100S Scrambler

Posted on March 28, 2018 by Andrew in Scrambler. No Comments

With original late 70s and early 80s BMW twins now becoming as rare as first edition Superman comics, Tasmanian Tigers or signed copies of the Gutenberg bible, builders are increasingly looking to 90s and noughties bikes as custom platforms. Take the very millennial BMW R1100S, for instance…

BACKWARDS TO VICTORY. Titan’s Reverse Head Honda CB350 Racer

Posted on January 26, 2018 by Andrew in Classic, Racer. 46 comments

When Austria’s Titan Motorcycles first set up a workshop, they stuffed their storage area with a collection of rusted-out motos they’d collected from the 70’s and 80’s. And in the years since they’ve been wandering through, vulture-like, picking interesting bits off for use in their custom builds…

CHEQUERED PAST. Titan’s Very Seasoned BMW R80RT Endurance Racer

Posted on October 31, 2017 by Andrew in Café Racer, Racer. 27 comments

Here’s a movie idea. A BMW that’s owned by the chief of police gets purchased by a somewhat suspect hemp farmer who uses it for ‘deliveries’. It’s then customised by a bunch of Austrian bike freaks and turned into an endurance racer for a wealthy goldsmith. Too far-fetched to be believable? Think again, because that’s the gospel truth when it comes to the history of Titan Motorcycles’ latest build, a BMW R80RT endurance racer.
