Second wind: A Yamaha DT175 reconfigured for the road

The Yamaha DT175 is one of those classic bikes that look ‘just right.’ With a small tank, fat seat and raised fenders, it’s a pint-sized enduro machine that screams fun. The DT175 we’ve got here, however, was most definitely not looking good when it rolled into the workshop of Sabotage Motorcycles in Sydney, New South Wales. It was rough around the edges and very tired—as you’d expect of a two-stroke that’s almost half a century old. This didn’t faze Giles Colliver and Andy Dorr, who have ...

Speed Read, 9 May 2021

This week’s custom motorcycles come in all shapes and sizes—from a pint-sized flat tracker, to a stylish BMW R18. Plus we take a look at a tidy BSA bobber, and a Norton Atlas with a Harley-Davidson WLA motor. Jake Drummond’s Mini Tracker Jake Drummond has some rather crazy skills, but for his latest project, he went small, cheap and cheerful. This mini flat tracker took him three months to build and cost just $1,800, but it’s just as cool as any bike twice its size. Jake started with a 196...

The art of speed: The Raisch x Ram Katzir Triumph

Amsterdam-based sculptor Ram Katzir captures still life when he’s at work, but when he’s on two wheels, he likes to travel very fast indeed. His current ride is this ballistic Triumph Speed Twin, which he designed with the help of German bike builder and racer Chris Raisch. This is second time that Ram has worked with Chris: the first was upgrading the engine on a smart Street Twin built by Motokouture in Belgium. We’re fans of Triumph’s even sportier Speed Twin, because it matches classic...

Raising the bar: Vagabund gives the BMW R nineT a lift

We’ve always admired custom motorcycle workshops that keep pushing the boundaries. Austria’s Vagabund Moto have been doing good work since day one, but they’ve never rested on their laurels. The founding duo of Paul Brauchart and Philipp Rabl seems to level up on every build, relentlessly experimenting with new designs, materials and processes. Their 15th build pushes the envelope to the breaking point. It’s a 2016-model BMW R nineT with hand-formed metalwork, 3D-printed parts, and bodywork t...

Fine Wolf: A suave SYM 150 commuter from 2LOUD

The definition of a commuter bike varies from the East to the West. In Europe, a prime commuter would be something like a Royal Enfield 650. But in Asia, scooters and tiny singles rule the roost, and companies like SYM make a killing. This right here is an early 2000s-model SYM Wolf 150 Legend. As commuters go, it’s surprisingly attractive, with a pint-sized UJM vibe to it. And as the Taiwanese shop 2LOUD Custom has just shown, it’s ripe for customization too. This isn’t the first time tha...

Tokyo Drifter: A Yamaha XV750 street tracker from Japan

Forty years ago, Yamaha made a brief foray into the flat track scene in the States with its XV750 race bike. Like most go-fast, turn-left machines, it was a bit of a looker—and provided inspiration for this phenomenal street tracker from Takashi Nihira. Nihira-san runs Wedge Motorcycle, one of the top Japanese custom shops. He’s won multiple awards at the Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show and was tapped by BMW to participate in their G310R custom project. This XV750 is a commission, from a cust...

Enginehawk’s Brand Lineup Hits the Market

Enginehawk built an exciting hype for its brand release today. The fresh brand was developed by Ruroc, a UK-based helmet manufacturer responsible for launching the notorious ‘Atlas’ helmet.  The Ruroc team grew to success by developing a helmet that couldn’t be mistaken for anything else on the market. One month ago, Ruroc released the third version of the unmistakable helmet – dubbed the Atlas 3.0.  As Jim Pruner stated in last week’s news release , the Enginehawk marketing team...

Dream Team: An eye-popping Ducati Scrambler flat tracker

Paint is the last thing that happens on a custom job, but it’s the first thing that people notice. And the livery on this race-ready Ducati Scrambler is unmissable. A zany combination of blue, magenta and reflective silver, it’s about as subtle as a Tarantino flick. Built in Italy, this Scrambler is the product of a collaboration between Samy Garage and Greaser Garage. Samy Garage is the moniker for flat track racer Sami Panseri, who spins spanners in his home garage about 25 miles outside Mi...

Rally Retro: A Himalayan with a Group B vibe from Thrive

Today’s adventure bike market is a little like the superbike market in the 80s; to quote Fall Out Boy, “It ain’t a scene, it’s an arms race.” ADV bikes are pushing north of 150 hp and 500 lbs, with eye-watering levels of tech packed in. If that doesn’t butter your toast, perhaps the Royal Enfield Himalayan is the answer. Royal Enfield designed the Himalayan to be simple and affordable, with an air-cooled 411 cc single, and little more than ABS on the tech side. So it’s basically the antithesi...

Triple Threat: Kiyo’s three-engined land speed racer

Land speed racing has a way of inspiring outrageous engineering. The most common motivation is a relentless pursuit of outright speed. Other times, it’s driven by a desire to build something that’s truly out of this world. Shoving three bored-out Honda CB750 motors into one land speed racer is probably a little bit of both. This, in all of its 12-cylinder, 2,508cc glory, is The Galaxy. It’s the creation of California-based custom motorcycle builder and mad genius, Mitsuhiro “Kiyo” Kiyonaga, ...

With Respect: Analog customizes the Ducati Paul Smart

The Ducati Paul Smart 1000 LE is special on so many levels. It’s not only one of Ducati’s greatest hits, but also one of the best looking modern classics ever produced. And since only 2,000 were ever made, it’s as rare as hen’s teeth—so good luck getting your hands on one. This isn’t lost on Analog Motorcycles founder Tony Prust. Faced with a client that was keen on having his Paul Smart customized, Tony had to figure out how to improve on perfection, while still respecting the rarity and bea...

Mega Thumper: Unik Edition scrambles the Suzuki DR Big

The Suzuki DR 800 S Big is the sort of bike no one would design today. It was the thumper to rule all thumpers, with a whopping 779 cc single-cylinder motor, long-travel suspension, a big front wheel and rally styling. That meant it was a little ridiculous, but sort of cool at the same time. Depending on your perspective, the DR Big’s late 80s to early 90s styling is either retro-fabulous, or hasn’t dated well. And while it has something of a cult following, it’s not considered as untouchable...

Max. Minimalism: Walt Siegl’s new electric bike concept

The world of electric motorcycles is, in many ways, still finding its feet. With full-blown electric motorcycles at one end of the spectrum and pedal-assist bicycles at the other, there’s a huge middle ground where imagination can run wild. And that’s exactly where Walt Siegl has played with his latest custom. Built entirely from the ground up, this new WSM creation is extremely hard to pigeonhole—and that’s exactly how Walt intended it. “I wanted to build a machine that looks like it comes f...

As catalytic converter thefts skyrocket in Southern California, police promote tactics to fight back

Thefts of catalytic converters from vehicles have skyrocketed during the pandemic, prompting a more aggressive response from Southern California police agencies in warning car owners about the crime and helping them to fight back.

Nice Werk: Marcus Walz reveals kits to tweak the BMW R18

Whenever a concept motorcycle becomes a production motorcycle, there are tears over how far the final product has strayed from the original design. The BMW R18 is no exception—but ultimately it’s an unavoidable scenario. Concept bikes are there to turn heads, but production bikes need to consider practicality, mass appeal and homologation for different markets. So once the bike’s rolled off the assembly line, it’s up to customizers to ‘fix’ it. This slick R18, from the famed German shop WalzW...

Triple Trouble: Krautmotors’ Kawasaki H1 flat tracker

The mythical Kawasaki H1 Mach III needs little introduction. The triple-cylinder 500 cc two-stroke made a splash when it hit the market in 1969, with an unforgiving power band earning it the infamous ‘widowmaker’ nickname. There are faster bikes out there these days, but a classic H1 is still a good candidate for a rapid restomod or cafe racer build—if you can get your hands on one. But here’s something you don’t see every day: an H1-based flat tracker, pieced together almost entirely from le...

Sportiv: A more muscular BMW R18 from FCR Original

Few new bike launches have been as controversial as the BMW R18. Seeing a German contender in the cruiser market has perplexed many people, and some of the styling touches—such as the fishtail mufflers—have furrowed a few brows. But as multiple road tests have since pointed out, the R18 is a cracking good example of the genre. And custom builders have been quick to whip out the grinders and reconfigure the biggest ever boxer. The latest workshop to tackle the R18 is FCR Original, led by Sé...

Play Mystic for Me: A BMW R80R scrambler from Warsaw

BMW Motorrad has a few quirky gems in the back catalog—like the early-90s R80R Mystic. As one of the last two-valve boxers before the four-valve ‘1100’ took over, the Mystic bundled some of BMW’s newer tech into a ‘factory custom’ aesthetic that didn’t quite gel. Released as both R80 and R100 versions (depending on your country), the Mystic was sort of a road-going version of the adventure travel R100GS. It borrowed the GS’s tank, seat and burly Paralever swingarm, and it came with 18F/17R tu...

Table for two: A Virago for a chef and his wife

Like the Honda CX500, the Yamaha Virago is one of those “sow’s ear” bikes: it’s a challenge to make a silk purse out of it. Plenty of custom builders have taken the bait, and a few have succeeded. This Virago from Kerkus in Malaysia is an oddball example, but there’s a reason for it. “The owner is a chef and runs a restaurant,” says shop founder Azahar. “He had an accident on this bike a few years back. He came to us wanting to transform it ‘Kerkus-style’—but he also wanted us to design it so...

Buell Making Big Moves in 2021

Buell Motorcycle Company has just announced plans for revival in 2021. The American-based company has said in a press release that they will be releasing 10 different motorcycles by 2024.  The Buell brand name and trademarks were acquired by EBR (Erik Buell Racing) Motorcycles in 2010. Buell Motorcycles will be under the leadership of CEO Bill Melvin with aggressive future plans for the American motorcycle brand.  If you’re confused already, worry not, we’ll break it down for you.  Erik Bue...

Dominatorr: Motoism’s Honda NX650 street scrambler

Boundaries are getting blurred in the custom scene. Genre-hopping bikes are everywhere, and it’s getting harder and harder to pigeonhole many builds. We reckon that’s a good thing, and so do the creators of this very sharp Honda Dominator. Brothers Lion and Ben Ott, of Motoism in Munich, felt a need for bikes that escape the definition of a classic cafe racer. They felt the urge to build “something different that is comfortable to ride and delivers good performance, but also embraces the dark...

Big Sled: A Ducati Scrambler 1100 from Officine RossoPuro

We’ve been lucky enough to ride most of Ducati’s extensive Scrambler range. Of all of them, the Desert Sled is the one we’re most likely to ride in the dirt—and the liter-plus Scrambler 1100 is the one we’re most likely to ride on the street. But what if you could roll them both into one bike? That’s exactly what Filippo Barbacane of Officine RossoPuro has just done, with this off-road-focused Ducati Scrambler 1100. By mashing up the 1100 with Desert Sled parts and hand-made touches, he’s bui...

Umbra: Crooked’s Harley tracker is straight-up goodness

Crooked Motorcycles is a name worth watching on the custom scene in Europe. Just a couple of months ago, they impressed us with a crisp BMW K100 build that avoided the cookie-cutter ‘flying brick’ vibe. And they’ve now just released details of this intriguing Sportster street tracker. You don’t often hear adjectives like ‘sleek’ or ‘sharp edged’ associated with the lovably chubby Sportster, but Crooked have absolutely transformed the V-twin icon. Workshop founders Dominikus Braun and Jako...

Obsidian Fighter: A Frisco-ed Sportster from Rough Crafts

Even though there’s been no official word from The Motor Co., it looks as if the venerable Harley-Davidson Sportster is slowly fizzling out. It’s been completely removed from H-D’s European website, and the once extensive range has been reduced to just three models on the US listing. And with H-D currently on a mission to scale down, we’re not holding our breath for a replacement. But the Sportster’s notoriety will continue long after the last model rolls off the assembly line. That’s because...
