What’s better than a movie about motorcycles? If you answered, ‘A movie about custom motorcycles,” then you win. Luckily for all of us, Englishman Gareth Roberts is way ahead of the curve. He’s been banging away on a rather epic project for the past three years he’s calling ‘Oil in the Blood’…

Blame Akira. Blame Blade Runner. Blame Daft Punk. We have a rather unhealthy obsession with the limitless future of motorcycle design. Bring on the electric engines and the artificial intelligence.

MOTO PHOTOS: 2019 MBE Show, Verona, Italy

Posted on March 11, 2019 by Andrew in Classic, Event. No Comments

When you think about it, Italy having one of the world’s biggest and best bike shows makes total sense. Motorcycles seem to be at the very heart of the Italian psyche. Motorcycles are Italy and Italy is motorcycles. And one visit to a show like Motor Bike Expo 2019 only drives the point home…

KESSEL COFFEE RUN. Ironwood’s ‘Latte Stormtrooper’ BMW R80 Bobber

Posted on March 7, 2019 by Andrew in Bobber, Classic. No Comments

Since 2012, Dutch shop Ironwood Motorcycles have pretty much dominated the classic BMW custom market in Western Europe. So much so, that their style has pretty much become shorthand for an entire genre of custom Beemers. It’s their ability to break the mould and think outside the square…

GLAMOUR HAMMER. Wrench Kings’ ‘Anvil’ Honda CB750 Cafe Racer

Posted on February 27, 2019 by Andrew in Café Racer, Restomod. No Comments

The 90s CBs are great for customisers. For a precious few years, we had bikes that retained the essence of those 70s and 80s classics while being (even more) reliable and now cheap as stale peanuts to buy. And now the older bikes are becoming rarer, it makes double the sense…

Imagine a partner that was as keen to mix two-stroke as you were. Well, for San Diego’s Eric Zanutto and his wife Melanie, nature has conspired to do the unimaginable. They both like bikes. Hell, they both build bikes. Here’s their latest creation – a ’71 Yamaha R5 Racer restomod…

COOL RUNNINGS. Banb Motorcycle’s ‘Zumax’ Suzuki GSX750 Inazuma Racer

Posted on February 20, 2019 by Andrew in Brat, Classic, Racer. No Comments

Ostentatious oil coolers have been a stock-in-trade item for Japanese car customisers for decades. Lifted from racing car stylings of the 70s and 80s, the more ridiculous its placement and the route the oil lines take, the more street cred the cars seem to have. But has it ever been attempted on a custom bike?

COOL CHANGE. Benjie’s Classic Harley Softail Bobber

Posted on February 19, 2019 by Andrew in Bobber, Classic. No Comments

As many shops now ponder their 142nd cafe racer build, the trends that prevailed in the 70s, 80s and 90s are now being seen with new, more forgiving eyes. In that spirit, New Jersey’s BCR Designs set themselves a challenge; go back to the future with a classic Harley Softail bobber…

WAR HORSE. David Meyers’ Majestic ‘Balios’ Honda CB550 Cafe Racer

Posted on February 13, 2019 by Andrew in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

The parallels between riding a motorcycle and riding a horse are obvious. I’d argue that in a lot of ways, motorcycles are just the industrial revolution version of the good old Equus Caballus. In the 1850s, a horse would provide personal transport, you could use them at work, police would ride them as would soldiers…

HERD MENTALITY. Two Yamaha XV Cafe Fighters from Moose Motodesign

Posted on February 12, 2019 by Andrew in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

It seems pretty clear to us that there’s something weird going on with the Polish water. Forget fluoride or vapour trails; this conspiracy seems to make entire countries fall in love with certain bikes. Poland’s fate is undying love of Yamaha’s XV…
