BOXER REBELLION. Matt Hart’s Classic BMW R65 Scrambler

Posted on April 4, 2019 by Andrew in Classic, Scrambler. No Comments

Matt Hart’s a photographer – and a damn good one at that. Trawling through his drool-worthy Instagram shows his passion for racing old Porsches and other, lesser marques. But when he was young he lived and breathed bikes, belting around on a little 80cc Yamaha. And lately the moto bug has bitten again…

DIRTY MIND. Fabtech’s Obsessive Harley Sportster Hooligan

Posted on January 25, 2019 by Andrew in Tracker. No Comments

Hooligan racing is a hell of a lot of fun and when an Aussie caught a glimpse of the action he wanted in, bad. The machines are a mix of street tracker and dirt bike that rip it up on the flat track. For Australian metal fabricator Jamie Portelli of Fabtech Creations, a trip to the USA had him hooked…

THE ART OF SMOKING. Sabotage Motorcycle’s Yamaha RD125 Racer

Posted on May 17, 2018 by Andrew in Classic, Racer. No Comments

It’s hard to think of a more Australian story; two young Europeans on motorbikes meet in the car park of Bunnings Hardware and over the obligatory ‘snag’ they form a friendship that brings them together to build a custom motorbike from the remains of a freebie found abandoned and wrecked in Bondi…

You may remember recently when we teamed up with Cam at Stories of Bike to create a video called ROADS WE RIDE for Transport for NSW’s motorcycling safety initiative. Here’s the third one in the series, and we’re thinking that it’s the best so far.

MOTO PHOTOS. 2017 Throttle Roll Street Party, Sydney

Posted on April 24, 2017 by Andrew in Event. 13 comments

The Throttle Roll bike show and street party marked its fifth birthday in 2017, and it patently obvious that the show’s still got a full head of steam behind it. It had more of everything this year: better bikes, better food, better vibes and pretty much the perfect weather. It’s embarrassing to admit it, but having covered the show like clockwork for the past four years, we’re now running out of superlatives to praise the damn thing. So let’s just say that without a doubt, this show is again the best bike-related gig in Australia.

‘Dirty Rascal’ Triumph America Bobber – Wenley Andrews

Posted on January 26, 2017 by Andrew in Bobber. 21 comments

Some say that his ear wax tastes like Turkish Delight and that if he could be bothered, he could crack the Da Vinci Code in 43 seconds… all we know is, he’s called Wenley. In the space of a week the maestro formerly of Mean Machines, Wenley Andrews, has come out swinging with two incredible Triumphs for the world to enjoy. But always one to set a challenge for himself, he didn’t pick a couple of T100 Bonnies and churn out cafe racers. Instead he first laid down the law with a thunderous triple, a barnstorming bruiser based on a Rocket III. Now to finish off the one-two combo, he’s flooring the competition with another unlikely custom candidate. It’s a brilliant old-school styled bobber based on a 2010 Triumph America. He calls it the ‘Dirty Rascal.’

Video: Roads We Ride

Posted on September 22, 2016 by Andrew in Video. 6 comments

Transport for New South Wales approached us earlier in 2016 to help keep riders safe. Specifically, they wanted us to start a conversation with our peers around how to stay safe on the roads we love riding. So Pipeburn, in conjunction with our good mate Cam over at Stories of Bike, were let loose to show how we’d do things. Sadly, our first idea where we were flown by space shuttle to the South of France for a month-long biker party in our very own Chateau was rejected almost immediately. But then we came up with something called ROADS WE RIDE.

Close your eyes and think of the last bike show you went to. Can’t read the blog now, can you? OK, bad idea… but stay with me. Bike shows should be the stuff that dreams are made of, right? I mean, what could be better than a whole bunch of sweet metal all in the one spot? Well, if your experience of bike shows is anything like mine, you’ll understand when I say that in my humble opinion, they aren’t all they could be. Except for one…
