SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED: BMW K100RS by Tossa R

Posted on February 4, 2020 by Scott in Café Racer. No Comments

Written by Tim Huber.

Unlike most creative mediums, custom motorcycle building isn’t taught in classrooms, and is instead of a mishmash of semi-related skills, often acquired over many years in other careers before being applied to one-off two-wheelers. For Tossa R’s owner, Tudor Dunev, that training and preparation came in the form of an illustrious four-wheeled motorsport career of building — and piloting — championship-winning drift and rally cars.

The Bulgarian racer’s accolades include a VW Lupo Cup championship, five consecutive Bulgarian Touring Car championship titles, and the title of 2010 European Drift King, among many others, the most recent of which being the 2019 Bulgarian Eco Rally which Dunev also took first in. So, after spending years churning out highly-competitive race cars engineered to take on extended abuse in some of the world’s toughest environments, Tudor has applied his skill-sets to running a successful customs shop with a proven history of quality and craftsmanship.

Posted on October 22, 2019 by Scott in Café Racer, Racer. No Comments

Written by Martin Hodgson

The popularity of certain models in the custom bike industry often makes total sense and at other times boggles the mind. Entire subcultures with a supporting aftermarket can grow around one particular bike while its direct competitors from other manufacturers are all but forgotten. But away from the scene’s strongholds and isolated from peer pressure, Bulgaria’s Ivan Mushev chose a model we’ve only featured twice in Pipeburn’s ten years. Taking a Honda Hornet 600 and turning it into a cafe-fighter that’s a rolling promotion for his newly formed outfit Bull Moto Custom.

Written by Martin Hodgson

There can be a simple price to pay when you choose to roll with the pack and conform to what the current culture demands; everyone else is happy but yourself! For Victor Dikanchev obeying the rules was never going to be an option, he’d build his bike the way he wanted no matter the reaction. Living in Bulgaria where there is almost no bike scene anyway, his motorcycle would become an extension of himself. So help him bring it all together he enlisted KKKBikes and together they’ve built a brilliant 1982 Honda CB900F2 that’s quite at home dividing opinion.

STAR LORD. Galaxy Custom’s ‘Duke’ Yamaha XS650

There’s something very cool about hearing from a shop that you’d almost forgotten about. Better yet, when they come knocking with a custom bike that takes your breath away, you know something big is afoot. So, like an artist emerging from their studio with their once-in-a-lifetime masterpiece…

Pipeburn’s 2013 Bike of the Year Award

Posted on December 26, 2013 by Andrew in Other. 60 comments

2013 has been a massive year for Pipeburn. We’ve got six times the eyeballs looking at the site now than we did this time last year. And on top of that, we’ve had an amazing run of great bikes. They were easily our best ever. So to celebrate, we thought we’d end 2013 on a high and introduce something that we’re calling the Pipeburn Bike of the Year Award. See that 2kg trophy of perfectly machined and polished stainless steel in the picture above? That’s our way of giving a little back to the scene and recognising the bike and builder that has defined 2013. So we’ve gone back over every bike to count comments, tally Facebook likes and measure absolute coolness to come up with our top 10 for 2013. The bike in the No. 1 spot takes the trophy. And what a bike it is…
