Noise Cycle’s rad Street Rod 750 tracker gets a revamp

In the world of professional motorcycle racing, development is a constant grind. Hooligan flat track racing is the same. But here, the upgrades are done by racers and builders on tight budgets. Not massive teams of engineers with eighteen-wheeler trucks full of SnapOn tools. So we’re fascinated by the way Scott ‘T-Bone’ Jones of Noise Cycles has rebuilt his fire-breathing Street Rod 750 tracker. It’s the same 2017-spec XG750M he raced with last year—but it’s evolved radically since then. A...

Animal Farm. Purpose Built Moto’s Yamaha XT250 MX Scrambler

Written by Tom Gilroy When you mention a Yamaha XT to any bike enthusiast a few things come to mind. Yamaha’s XT series set the bar in off-road racing for a long time, and since then they’ve been synonymous with durability, performance and reliability. So of course, I have one rolled into the garage that looks anything but. Ex-farm bike. Rolling chassis, motor, box of parts and three words, “Make a scrambler.” The easy route would have been to mount a nice, rounded fender and a run-of-the-...

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...

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...

PIPEBURN INTERVIEW: Calum From DeBolex Finds Oil In The Blood

Written by Andrew Jones What’s better than a movie about motorcycles? If you answered, ‘A movie about custom motorcycles,” then you win the internets for today. Luckily for all of us, Englishman Gareth Roberts is way ahead of the curve. He’s been banging away on a rather epic project for the past three years he’s calling ‘Oil in the Blood’. And unlike those little YouTube ditties we’re all so used to, this one’s a proper cinema release that’s less MTV music video and more Gone With The Wind. ...

Feel the Illinoise: A DR-Z400 for the streets of Chicago

Federal Moto have  the Midas touch. The builds coming out of their Chicago workshop are sharp-edged, compact and big hits with our readers. But sometimes, success can be a double-edged sword. After releasing ‘The Sunshine State of Mind’ SR500 in 2016, Federal were bombarded with requests for a replica build. “But there’s no fun in building the same bike twice,” says lead builder Mike Müller. “We love the support, but we also want our clients to have a one-of-a-kind bike.” So Federal genera...

PIPEBURN EXCLUSIVE: A Behind The Scenes Look At Royal Enfield’s New 650 Twins

Written by Andrew Jones It’s September 26th, 2017. Through a series of events I still don’t quite understand, I’m sitting in the boardroom of the new Royal Enfield Technical Centre at Bruntingthorpe, near Leicester in the UK. Next to me is Siddharth Lal who’s the son of Vikram Lal, one of India’s richest men. ‘Sid’, as he’s called, is the CEO of Royal Enfield. Also here is Englishman Mark Wells who is their design guru and American Paul Ventura who does the thinking behind the company’s new p...

Jigsaw pieces together a Scrambler Ducati custom

We reckon the Scrambler Ducati is one of the best-looking factory bikes around. And the healthy sales figures bear that out. That makes it slightly tricky to modify. But the Greek shop Jigsaw Customs has just done a sterling job with a major bodywork swap and a select few smart mechanical mods. Jigsaw is a family-run business just outside Athens, and part of a Yamaha dealership. But in the cooler winter months, they focus on restoring and customizing motorcycles. This commission came from...

Meet Mighty Mouse

Ok, so before I disappeared off to take part in the TT2000 I did something foolish and bought another bike.  Except it wasn't foolish - I needed another bike for my single car garage (now containing 3 bikes and a car). Enter the little WR who now shall be dubbed "Might Mouse": After chatting to Colin about his one I had a quick look on Trademe and stumbled on this one.  It looked like it was [Author: Andrew Thomson]

FORREST THUMP. Red Clouds’ Twin Yamaha XT500 Enduros

They make pants, shirts, bags, panniers and tool rolls that are harder wearing and longer lasting than their owners could ever be.

POWER COUPLE. Zanutto Engineering’s ’71 Yamaha R5 Restomod Racer

Written by Andrew Jones My partner loves talking about motorcycles. Sometimes, she just bangs on and on for hours and hours about two-stroke service intervals, the history of 500cc two-stroke Grand Prix racing and her favourite subject – expansion chamber designs. I’m joking, of course. She hates bikes. But just imagine if there was such a thing. Imagine a partner that was as keen to mix two-stroke as you were. Well, for San Diego’s Eric Zanutto and his wife Melanie, nature has conspired to...
