Fighting Talk: Harley design boss Brad Richards

Harley-Davidson is under a microscope right now: its every move is dissected, examined and critiqued. And there have been plenty of moves lately. They’ve killed the Dyna while relaunching the Softail. They’ve announced a barrage of new models, including the Livewire. But although revenue is holding up at the moment, sales figures have been declining for several years—and were down 10% in 2018. It’s a challenging time for the Motor Company. So I sat down in Milwaukee with Harley’s VP of Styl...

FIM Enel MotoE World Cup to be Rescheduled After Fire

It Will Still be In 2019 The devastating fire that claimed the vast majority of the equipment and materials for the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup forced officials to announce that the race will be moved to a later date. According to Superbike News, MotoE will still race in 2019 but a revised calendar will need to be created for the sport.

DOPE DIRIGIBLE. Kacerwagen’s ‘Zeppelina V72’ Board Tracker

Written by Martin Hodgson They were the original kings of the race track, but you won’t ever find a replica of one hanging out at your local cafe bike meet. However over recent years with TV shows like Harley and the Davidsons and Sons of Speed, along with the input of America’s best builders like Billy Lane and Rick Petko, the board tracker is back with a vengeance. But what do you do when you live in a country where finding a ’20s Indian in a barn is as likely as finding the fabled pot of g...

Hispano Suiza built the world’s first vintage-inspired electric hypercar

Back after a major hiatus post the Spanish Civil War, when the Catalonian government decided to seize control of its factories and use them for aircraft engines and other war supplies, Hispano Suiza, Spain’s homegrown luxury automotive brand, is back in action, and with a strong reminder of what it stood for in the past.This is the Carmen, named after Carmen Mateu, the granddaughter of the founder of Hispano Suiza, and the current president’s mother.

November Customs’ Ducati Scrambler 350 Restomod

Most custom shops have a bike or two quietly lurking in the corner. They’re usually personal projects that only get attention during gaps between ‘real’ jobs. And that’s the story of this charming 1974 Ducati Scrambler 350. Paul and Linda—the husband and wife team at November Customs—first spotted the Ducati when a nearby shop imported it from Spain. They literally bought it as it was being off-loaded, with the intention of giving it a light sprucing. But once they had it road legal and regis...

It’s A Keeper: A K series built for a footballing legend

When one of Spain’s most legendary goalkeepers wanted a hot steed based on a BMW K series ‘brick,’ he knew just the team to call: Bolt Motor Co. of Valencia. Andrés Palop, known for his penalty-stopping prowess at Sevilla FC, approached Bolt boss Adrián Campos with a simple brief for a custom build; clean lines, a bit of a dark feeling, and some red touches. Adrián and his team are known for their ability to produce clinically clean customs from unlikely platforms. This time they chose a 1...

Café Express: Freeride’s Montesa Cota 247 cafe racer

If you’ve ridden a two-stroke, you’ll know how addictive the power rush (and sound) can be. So we have a soft spot for anything that smells pungent and goes braaap—especially if it’s got a bit of history and a side order of style. Montesa bikes tick all the boxes: the Spanish manufacturer was hugely successful in motocross and road racing from the sixties to the mid-eighties. Its Cota 247 model was also popular with trials riders—but who’d have thought a trials bike would make a great little ...

SMARTY PANTAH. XTR Pepo’s Stunning Ducati Monster 821 Racer

Written by Marlon Slack In only a short few years Spain’s XTR Pepo have produced the best racer-inspired customs in the world. Every time one of their builds smashes into our inbox we drop what we’re doing, drop our trousers and get ready for some serious Italian eye candy. This time was no exception, with the unveiling of their 2016 Ducati Monster dubbed ‘Pantah’. Head of XTR Pepo, Pepo Rosell, hasn’t arrived at the acme of the Italian bike custom scene by accident.

Ducati’s Future Is Electric

An Electric Italian Stallion Is Coming Electric motorcycles are starting to really come into their own. I made a prediction that 2019 would be a breakout year for electric bikes. It’s shaping up to be true. Ducati is in the game. At a Motostudent event in Spain, Claudio Domenicali, Ducati’s CEO, said “The future is electric, we’re not far from starting series production.” The Italian publication Corsedimoto, reported Domenicali saying the quote above.

Setting the bar: UFO Garage’s BMW R100R cafe racer

We’re always on the hunt for custom motorcycles that push boundaries. So if you’re going to tread familiar territory, you better do an exceptional job of it. This right here is a classic BMW cafe racer—a genre that’s quite frankly been done to death. But unlike ninety percent of the airhead cafés we see, this R100R from Spain is perfectly balanced, amazingly well finished, and devoid of clichés. It’s the work of Efraón Triana at UFO Garage, a builder with exceptional taste. He turned a mo...

How To Ensure You’ll Always Find A Parking Spot In America’s Busiest Cities

MASH HIT. XTR’s ‘Di Traverso’ Mash 500 Dirt Tracker

Written by Andrew Jones Is it just me, or are customisers a lot like rock bands? You have your favourites. You wear the t-shirts. You feel a little tinge of excitement when you hear that they have released something new. Well, in my mind, Spain’s XTR Pepo is more than a little like AC/DC. Yes, they stick to what they know, but they are so damn good at what they know you just don’t care. And if there’s one thing that Pepo Rosell is good at, it’s ‘sell your granny to the abattoir to get one’ ra...

ONE DOWN, CLAW UP. AdHoc’s Sharp Cagiva Raptor Roadster

Written by Marlon Slack Some clients can rain cash down upon a builder to make their dreams come to life. But sometimes owners are mere mortals like us and have to tread more warily when it comes to a budget. And that’s what Spain’s Adhoc have dealt with here, with their 2005 Cagiva Raptor given a careful haircut and coming out looking a million bucks. “The motorcycle was sent to us by the client,” Adhoc’s David Gonzalez recalls, “he was delighted with the response of the engine and perfo...

The modern classic, Honda style: Bolt’s 1995 Seven Fifty

By the time the nineties rolled around, the reputation of the Honda CB750 was losing its luster. The iconic straight four had softened, and the F2 model was more suited to cruising than blasting through canyons. But the build quality and engineering was still top-notch, which makes the ‘Seven Fifty’ a good used buy today. This sleek build from Spain’s Bolt Motor Co. ditches the clunky styling and cranks up the dynamics with a major suspension upgrade. “We built this for our friend Santiag...

MONSTER, INC. Macco Motor’s ‘Chimera’ Honda CB750 SuperSport

Written by Martin Hodgson We’ve all heard rumours about the old man with a low kilometre classic motorcycle in his garage gathering dust; but go for a look and nine times out of ten it’s what a real estate agent calls a ‘renovators delight’, that’s industry code for crap. But when Spain’s kings of custom, Jose and Tito from Macco Motors, found just such a ride it was the rare exception; a 1976 Honda CB750 with only 8000 km on the clock. The negotiations were monstrous, but the results speak f...

Superunknown: A first-time builder hits the big time

Purists will say that a full nuts-n-bolts restoration is the only way to treat a rare classic. But when all you have is a motor and a head full of inspiration, things tend to escalate. That’s how this intriguing and beautiful vintage Harley came into existence. It’s the work of Jackson Burrows, a young furniture designer and artist based in Calgary, Canada. And, believe it or not, it’s Jackson’s first attempt at building a bike. The project kicked off four years ago, when Jackson was still...
