Deus Thruxton

Posted on May 28, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer. No Comments

This is how Deus does a Thruxton. I am not sure about colour choices. Love everything else including the white pipe. Aprilia RSV front end, twin flatside carbs and Ohlin rear shocks.

2009 Triumph Thruxton

Posted on March 27, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer. No Comments

This is obviously based on the Thruxton racing bikes of the 60’s that lead to the huge Cafe Racer Revolution. They have done a great job keeping close to the original. Even hiding the fuel injection system in a pair of carburetors so it retains Thruxton’s legendary racing look.

I have read lots of great reviews of this bike and if i had a bit more cash I would definitely make some room in the garage for it.

PIPEBURN REVIEW: Triumph’s 2019 Scrambler 1200 XE

Posted on February 26, 2019 by Andrew in Review, Scrambler. No Comments

“THIS IS NOT A SCRAMBLER!” is what I shout to myself on repeat as I hit the first few corners of the famous Great Ocean Road in Australia’s south-east. Not a car in sight, my right wrist is only just warming up. Luckily, my hands are already comfortable thanks to the bike’s heated grips…

RACE REPORT: Sultans of Sprint Race 3 – Glemseck 101

Posted on September 25, 2018 by Andrew in Event, Racer. No Comments

The Glemseck 101 event in Germany’s Leonberg describes itself as a motorcycle ‘happening’. Now while that may conjure up images of naked, badly painted hippies dancing to experimental synthesiser music, the last 10 years have proven it to be a lot more interesting than the moniker may suggest…

MOTO PHOTOS: 2018 Custom Built Show, Bogotá, Colombia

Posted on September 18, 2018 by Andrew in Event. No Comments

I’ve got many stories about my time in Colombia. Some of it is a blur. I was crippled by soroche, struck down by the flu and found myself in the middle of Colombia’s national holiday. A holiday that had missile-launcher-toting soldiers on DR650’s patrolling the streets…

UNDERNEATH THE RADAR. A Honda CB750 Urban Scrambler by Moto Adonis

Posted on November 20, 2017 by Andrew in Scrambler. 44 comments

Americans don’t know how lucky they are. It seems to us outsiders that you could weld a set of wheels to an Exocet missile and it would still be considered a roadworthy bike in all 50 states. But for the rest of us – especially those in the EU – there’s an army of engineering bureaucrats…

KING OF THE EAST. A Royal Enfield Racer from Indonesia’s White Collar Bikes

Posted on August 29, 2017 by Andrew in Café Racer. 20 comments

Indonesian custom bike building. It probably brings to mind images of hand-beating metal parts while enjoying a beer and the sun in a tropical paradise. But if it did, you’d be dead wrong. Because for Ram Ram Junuar of Bandung’s White Collar Bikes, only the latest and greatest techniques will do. So with processes that would put most Western shops to shame, he’s built this classic-meets-modern Continental GT for Royal Enfield Indonesia.
