MC Collection

Posted on October 10, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Racer. No Comments

MC Collection is a museum in Stockholm Sweden showing an impressive collection of motorcycles from the 19th century until today. The exhibition represents the personal collections of Christer R Christensson and Ove Johansson. The theme for this year will be Harley-Davidson, possibly the best-known brand in the world of motorcycles. In the exhibition, they will present 20 amazing bikes from the most popular eras in HD’s history from the oldest example made in 1912 all the way to the latest model, a “V-rod” from 2008. One of our favourite bikes in the collection is this HD XR 1000 Racer by the guys at V-Twin Cycle Shop in NY (their website is still yet to launch). What a spectacular looking racer, would give my right hand to ride a few laps on that beast (might be hard with one hand though). If you do find yourself in downtown Stockholm then definitely check out this museum. To see more of the motorcycles in the MC Collection visit the gallery.

Sordillo Salt Flat

Posted on October 7, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Classic. 1 Comment

Walt Siegl built this amazing panhead chopper for the artist, Arthur Sordillo. Walt is a motorcycle builder out of New York City who has been riding and building Harley choppers, bobbers, and race bikes in the old school style for more than 20 years. When we say old school, we mean he makes pretty much every part by hand. This Sordillo Salt Flat was part of the art exhibition “Oldskool — a survey of 20th Century Motorculture,” curated by the painter Gregory Johnston. Walt still road races V-Twins and is constantly surprising people with his amazing eye for custom bike building. To see more of Walt’s work check his impressive gallery.

Moto Guzzi Classic Le Mans

Posted on October 6, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer. 4 comments

If you have a Moto Guzzi and live in Europe then you have probably heard of Dynotec in Germany. The word on the street is that these guys are the masters at Guzzi engine modifications and restorations. This high spec Moto Guzzi Cafe Racer is their latest project with Ohlins shocks, Excel Talon Supermoto Wheels and a beautiful electric blue powder coated frame. Would love to give you the full build specs but unfortunately I can’t read ze German… Scheisse! There is loads of great pics on their website showing the whole build process. [Found @ Racing Cafe]

XRTT Cafe Racer

Posted on October 5, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer. No Comments
This 1750cc XRTT Harley Davidson Cafe Racer was built by Bill Nigro from American Motorcycle Parts. Bill Nigro, owner of AMCP has a long history of building some very unique custom motorcycles. Specializing in American built choppers it’s refreshing to see him build a XRTT Cafe Racer. Judging by this powerful American cross British styled beast we hope he decides to build more. Check out the AMCP gallery to see more from this legend.

2010 CB1100

Posted on October 4, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer. 1 Comment

Wasn’t long ago we were admiring the CB1100 concept and hoping that Honda wasn’t just prick teasing, but would actually start producing a modern retro styled CB. Well, they have finally confirmed production in 2010. No exact dates or pricing confirmed but we hope they price this bike competitively. If it is a success we would love to see Honda starts making many other retro styled bikes including a CB750. The red CB1100 pictured has been slightly customized with a cafe racer styled seat, fairing and black powder coated pipes. Just gives you a taste of what can be achieved. Can’t wait to see these bikes fully customized by the public. [Pic via Hell for Leather]

Hank Young came onto the scene in 2002 by turning up to Daytona Beach Biketoberfest on a bike he built called ‘The Flying Pan‘, a bike which was widely praised in the worldwide motorcycling press. In 2002, he made his “hobby” official and started Young Choppers & Hot Rods. Now Hank specializes in bringing together the vital spirits of motorcycling and hot rodding heritage with technical innovations to create timeless expressions of automotive vision to inspire and thrill us. We love this mean, low and green Harley Davidson. For more pics of this tribute to the past check out this gallery.

Hammer Time

Posted on September 30, 2009 by Scott in Other. No Comments

I know what you are thinking, where the hell is the engine? Well, I found this custom bike and loved the look of it. Not only does it have a beautiful pin up girl standing behind it, but it’s also the bicycle I dreamt of owning as a kid. I can imagine the girls on my block would have done anything for a ride. Built by Hammer Kustom Bicycles in Long Beach California. They build one off custom choppers and cruiser bicycles that are clean, sleek, long and low. They basically recreate bobbers and choppers in bicycle form. Not a bad option if you have lost your license or are just cruising down to the beach. Check out their gallery to see the rest of their killer Kustoms. Imagine this bike with a spooky tooth engine on it?

Zero Engineering Calender

Posted on September 29, 2009 by Scott in Bobber. 1 Comment

Just got a message from Vegas photographer Ben Schkade mentioning his latest project, shooting the Zero Engineering 2010 calender. Man, some guys have a tough life. Imagine having to get out of bed to shoot some of the best looking motorcycles and girls on the planet? Judging by his photographs we think these calenders are going to be big sellers. The guys at Church of Choppers have more great shots from the shoot (if you could be bothered checking out more hotties on amazing bikes). Will keep you posted when the calendar is released on the Zero site. Until then, get excited by the Zero gallery. [Update: Calenders now available online]

Venice Bobber

Posted on September 27, 2009 by Scott in Bobber. 3 comments

We love how Chris Tragert from Venice Choppers describes his custom bobber; “This bare-knuckle venice bobber is a product of its environment. A light, compact weapon needed to slice through the traffic-choked urban sprawl surrounding the sea-side oasis where it was conceived. Lightweight, quickness, agile handling, and good brakes were top priority. The resulting menacing appearance would give murderous cagers something to text about”. This mad candy red bobber has the unmistakeable 78 CB750F motor. Stripped down and rebuilt with stainless hardware. Love those pipes and we bet they make a great bark. For a full list of the specs (written beautifully by the way) check out their website or for more pics visit the gallery.
