With some custom bikes, it’s easy to see where stock ends and the custom work starts. And there’s no begrudging this style of build – we love a bike that can masquerade as a factory motorcycle. But sometimes we like balls-to-the-wall insanity. Bikes that scream bespoke parts and hundreds of man hours…

Prior to ever being installed in the Haas Moto Museum, every vintage cycle in the Collection is treated to a “day of beauty” in the shop at Strokers Dallas, where it is bathed and primped to remove the grime that has built up over the years.

As you first set foot in “The Race Track” at the Haas Moto Museum, an oblong-shaped chamber dedicated to speed merchants that span over a century from a 1904 Peugeot to a 2017 Grand Prix Suter, you are greeted by a panel that reads in part: “In a moving tribute to the world-renowned free-diver Nicholas Mevoli”…

THE SEELEY-TAIT RACER. A 40-Year Love Affair

Posted on July 15, 2018 by Andrew in Classic, Other, Racer. No Comments

As I stare, white-knuckled and barely breathing, at the trucker unloading the famous three-cylinder 492cc Seeley-Tait customized racer that I managed to capture at Bonhams Spring Stafford Sale, the thoughts that ricochet through my mind, strangely enough, are thoughts of love…

CUSTOM REVOLUTION: Paul d’Orléans’ Petersen Museum Moto Masterpiece

Posted on May 8, 2018 by Andrew in Bobber, Café Racer, Classic, Event. No Comments

We’d call Paul d’Orléans a Renaissance man, but 14th Century Italy wouldn’t have enough vintage motorcycles, loafers and Hawaiian shirts to keep him happy. Instead, we’ll just call him a modern day moto legend…

MOTO PHOTOS: California’s Shaik Ridzwan

Posted on October 21, 2017 by Andrew in Other. 14 comments

Time for a quick confession. Shaik Ridzwan was probably the first photographer featured on Pipeburn who really made us sit up and take notice.
