Master of Metal: Shiny Hammer’s Moto Guzzi 1000SP

We’re suckers for classic Moto Guzzi café racers. But we like it even more when someone messes up the recipe a little. As with this sleek and quirky 1000 SP from France—which mixes conventional and unorthodox styling cues to great effect. It comes from Samuel Aguiar, a multi-talented chap who designs furniture as well as motorcycles. He runs the Shiny Hammer workshop in Saint-Quentin, a town near the border of Belgium in northern France. Samuel’s previous creations include a Rocketeer-styl...

The 2021 Harley Davidson Motorcycle Lineup + Our Take On Each Model

It was one wild ride to get through 2020, something that was certainly true at Harley Davison. In March Jochen Zeitz took off his Pumas and swapped them for his biker boots. The new CEO of HD has now been in the big saddle for 9 months, and a busy stretch it was. Branded as “The Rewire,” changes are in full swing. It is safe to say that the majority of rumors you may have heard or hoped for, will be very hard to put much stock in. The only bike I will say for certain is coming but has not hit it...

Cut to Fit: RSD build a Honda Monkey for Wee Man

Customization can be about aesthetics and performance, but it can also be about making a motorcycle fit its rider better. This wild Honda Monkey from Roland Sands Design rolls all three approaches into one, with a build list to rival bikes twice its size. The Californian workshop built the Monkey for skateboarder, stunt performer and Jackass star Jason ‘Wee Man’ Acuña. Jason used to ride mini-motocrossers as a kid, but he wanted to get back on two wheels—and this time on the street. So he app...

2021 KTM 890 Duke Gets Power and Tech Upgrades

More Powah’ Baby! For the 2021 model year, KTM decided to take the 890 Duke R’s engine and drop it into the older 790 Duke, bringing a brand new 890 Duke standard model into the Duke family picture. With the original 790 Duke falling short of the MT-09 (perhaps it was to be more closely related to the MT-07), KTM brought it upon itself to bring the bike up-to-par with the rest of the middleweight contenders and have surgically transplanted the powerhouse from the 890 Duke into the older 790 cr...

Overlander: A BMW G/S built for serious adventure travel

Nothing grows knowledge like experience. So the best way to figure out how to design a continent-crossing motorcycle, is to actually cross a continent—then see what works, and what doesn’t. Back in 2016, Matias Corea rode his 1985 BMW R80G/S Paris Dakar from Brooklyn all the way to Ushuaia, in Argentina. Now he’s got another trip planned: a 22,000-mile journey from his native Barcelona to Cape Town in South Africa. So he’s taken the lessons from his first trip, and built his vision of the ult...

Salt Flat Dreams: MB Cycles’ S&S-powered Softail

Over the past fifteen years, Martin Becker of MB Cycles has carved out a reputation as one of the best custom Harley builders in Germany. He’s a regular at shows and in magazines such as Custombike, but you don’t need to be a V-twin enthusiast to spot that his work is something special.

Revealed: The Top 10 Custom Motorcycles of 2020

Let’s face it —it’s been the year from hell for most of us. But builders kept on building, in sheds and workshops and garages, and most of us were still able to get out and ride (a little). Most builders were stymied by a lack of parts availability and prolonged shipping times. Others fired up the lathe, cannibalized spare bikes, or made do with what was lying around on the shelf. The quality and quantity of bikes submitted to us throughout the year did not decline. On a more personal note, ...
