Finally: The definitive movie about the custom moto scene

We’re surprised it’s taken so long. The ‘alt moto’ movement has been on fire for at least a decade, but it’s never made the jump onto the big screen. Oil In The Blood is the first film to catalog the builders, riders and artists who are driving the scene forward. It’s directed by Gareth Maxwell Roberts, a founding member of the Bike Shed club in London and the possessor of an unfeasibly large Rolodex. Gareth knows everybody in the business—and the cast list feels like a Who’s Who of the ...

Harley-Davidson Shows Off Its Electric Concepts In Action

Harley Looking Ahead Harley-Davidson made a big effort towards the future with its new LiveWire. However, that bike hasn’t been very well received. Most people aren’t impressed with the range or price. Basically, $30k is a lot to ask for a motorcycle that only goes about 100 miles per charge. Harley showed off two other bikes when it debuted the LiveWire. Two smaller concepts and now there’s video.  At the X Games in Aspen, Colorado, the company brought its two small concepts along and let some...

Vespa Scooters Retain Over 72 Percent of Their Value After 3 Years of Ownership

The Scooters Retain Their Value Better Than Anything Else Can you think of a vehicle that would retain 72.1 percent of its value over three years of ownership? According to data from J.D. Power and Associates, Vespa scooters do just that. This year was the first year that J.D. Power tracked resale value and published a study on its findings. The published study was only on cars, but The New York Times reported that data in the study extended to two-wheeled vehicles, too. The brand sitting at th...

MAGIC BULLET. Bandit9’s ‘Merlin’ Royal Enfield Bobber

Written by Andrew Jones Let’s not beat around the bush; Bandit9’s critics have been many and varied. They called out the shop by insisting that all their bikes were nothing but Photoshop renders. They questioned their creativity and even suggested they stole ideas. Such is often the fate of those who choose to rock the boat. But for shop owner Daryl Villanueva, none of this really mattered. Like anybody with an honest-to-goodness mission in life, he knew where he was going and what he was doi...

The Microlino makes ‘adorable’ an automotive trait

As far as automobiles go, cute isn’t a term you see thrown around too often. The VW Beetle, for instance was one of the first cars to be perceived as cute (I’m more of a Mini Cooper man myself), but post its success, not many cars have harnessed that aesthetic… or harnessed it well (Google’s self-driving car looks cute, but feels more like a toy robot than a car).Inspired by the BMW Isetta from the 50s (another adorable car), the Microlino does a rather wonderful job of looking cute, but at th...

If Motorcycle Manufacturers Made Cars: A Sneak Peek!

Japanese car maker Honda started out by crafting motorcycles in 1949, and the company is still regarded as the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer today. Unbeknownst to many, Honda made automotive piston rings for Toyota before shifting their attention to motorized two-wheeled bicycles. And the rest, as they say, is history. This is a great example of a motorcycle manufacturer who decided to make cars. But what if Aprilia, Ducati, and other iconic motorcycle brands shifted their attention to...

Butchered: An insane custom Vespa scooter from Russia

Butcher Garage is not a familiar name around these parts. But they specialize in a genre we’d love to see more of: extreme custom scooters. And judging by this pseudo-scrambler Vespa PX 150, they’ve got the imagination for it, too. Based in Saint Petersburg, Russia’s second-largest city, Butcher Garage is run by three friends: Alex, Mitya and Miha. They’ve been operating for eight years now, repairing, tuning and tweaking scoots. The crew rely heavily on the German scooter parts specialis...

SLOVENIAN SPRING. Boštjan Lukežič’s Sprightly Honda CX500 Cafe Racer

Written by Martin Hodgson For millennia, the small central European nation of Slovenia has been at the crossroads of the varied cultures that dominate the continent. But despite adopting diverse influences, its population of just two million people remain proudly independent and it’s clear of late something has been stirred into the well of one of the most water rich places on earth. And that thing is speed. Punching above their weight in the custom bike scene, Boštjan Lukežič decided it was ...

2018 Ride for Kids

Today I'd decided to support a local charity ride benefiting kids with Down Syndrome - a nice idea and I was happy to give them my $20.  But things could have gone better...I arrived fairly early and signed on and spoke to a few riders while I waited in the hot sun.  With a lot of agricultural equipment surrounding me I felt a little like the odd one out but hey, it was great that the ride was getting a good turn out.  The photos below are pretty much before "everyone" arrived, I'd say that befo...

The Wasp Has a New Sting

The past month has seen the many, many unveilings of the world’s largest car brands, sharing with us their sights into the future. With this, we’ve been fortunate enough to see a few kick-ass two-wheelers thrown in for good measure too. One collection of kick-ass two- wheelers that caught our eyes here in Yanko is the Transferred Vespa Design Range by Jennings Harvey-Davidson – a project poking fun at what a full-on Vespa motorcycle would look like, but they didn’t stop there, they explored a wh...
