SUGAR RUSH. Moto Candy’s Sweet Sportster Sprint Racer

Posted on October 24, 2018 by Andrew in Racer. No Comments

They say too much sugar makes you do silly things. Running around like an idiot. Uncontrollable giggling. Boundless energy. Which, strangely enough, are pretty much the same symptoms one exhibits after a serious run on a fully worked sprint racer. Introducing Moto Candy’s Sportster-powered ‘Lolly Pop’…

Posted on June 17, 2018 by Andrew in Bobber. No Comments

Cleveland’s GasBox seemingly threw this classic shop project ‘72 Harley Sportster together using spare bits and pieces. Oh, and their custom bike genius. But the best part is that they are pretty much giving the thing away at the 2018 Fuel Cleveland Show…

Posted on March 31, 2018 by Andrew in Tracker. No Comments

San Diego’s Mule Motorcycles know exactly what they’re doing. They nearly exclusively produce performance trackers. And not just trumped-up backyard jobs. Every single one is a masterclass in proportion, style and, ultimately, performance. There’s lots of people trying to do what Richard Pollock produces and none can come close…

Posted on February 27, 2018 by Andrew in Tracker. No Comments

Custom bikes can come from almost anywhere. Brand new factory bikes or clapped-out junkers. Crash victims or botched restorations. But there’s one type of donor bike that always brings a smile to our faces, and that’s the parts bin specials. Like this Harley Sportster from California’s Mule Motorcycles…

MIDNIGHT EXPRESS. Mule Motorcycles’ Mean Harley Sportster Street Tracker

Posted on October 17, 2017 by Andrew in Racer, Tracker. 54 comments

As always at this time of year, Harley have just wheeled out their 2018 models to the world’s eager press. Sure they look cool but all we can see is the big, fat hole where there isn’t a street tracker. C’mon Milwaukee! Just slap a light and some indicators on the XG750R and be done with it. No? Well, that’s cool because Mule Motorcycles’ Richard Pollock, a.k.a. California’s king of trackers, has just delivered us a Harley Sportster XL1200 street tracker that should keep all but the most unhinged of HD tracker fans happy for a millennia or three.

HOG WILD. Gasser Customs Takes A Harley Sportster 1200 Camping

Posted on September 29, 2017 by Andrew in Enduro. 17 comments

Ever since Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman used BMW GS motorcycles to tackle their epic journeys around the world the Adventure bike category has been selling strong. Brands as diverse as Royal Enfield to prestige marque MV Agusta have been getting in on the act but the BMW remains the gold standard. However with the GS and other major challengers now coming with things like GPS, stability control, a quick-shifter and other technological wizardry it seems to be less adventure and more twee Sunday ride. So to get back to the gritty survival spirit, California’s Gasser Customs has built this Baja beast for the intrepid explorer. It’s a 2005 Harley Sportster 1200 that will take you anywhere, kick sand in the oppositions eyes and rightfully earns the name ‘Adventure‘.

Posted on June 28, 2017 by Andrew in Tracker. 11 comments

Our recent expedition to Northern Italy for the inaugural Wildays show gave us more than just ham-induced consumption, some sunburn and a flat track-related bung knee. It also provided us a chance meeting with Germany‘s Hookie Co., who had set up shop right alongside the Pipeburn display area. Bumming their shade, we got to talking over this, their latest build. It’s a 1993 Harley XL883 that’s been given a new lease of life as one of 2017’s coolest trackers yet.

REBEL WITH A CAUSE. Hageman Motorcycles’ Harley Scrambler

Posted on June 17, 2017 by Andrew in Scrambler. 16 comments

Maybe it’s an old school mentality that I should let go, but no one works on my bikes but me. Knowing you tightened that axle bolt yourself gives a little added comfort when speeds start going past the ton. But if he didn’t live on the other side of the Pacific Ocean I’d throw my keys to Greg Hageman in a heartbeat! He’s a master mechanic who never fails when it comes to building incredible customs that ride as perfectly as they appeal to the eye. So it’s easy to see why Rebel Yell Bourbon entrusted the future custom bike hall of famer to knock out a give-away machine for one lucky customer. The prize? A go anywhere 2015 Harley Davidson Sportster 48 that tips its cap to the AMF years.
