The Omen: A Yamaha MT-07 With a Custom Perimeter Frame

There are many ways to visualize a custom motorcycle before actually putting grinder to metal. Some builders start with a pencil and paper, while others use Photoshop or create 3D renders. But how about building a 1/10th scale model out of stainless steel? It sounds crazy, but that’s how Jake Drummond conceptualized this show-stopping Yamaha MT-07, dubbed ‘The Omen.’ Jake’s only twenty-five years old, and lives in Oshkosh, Wisconsin—but his whole life has revolved around design and engineerin...

The “Khan” might be the most otherworldly BMW bike ever made

Pretty much bridging the gap between concept bikes and concept art for games and movies, Mehmet Doruk Erdem’s “Khan” is an eclectic mix of unbelievable, dangerous, and beautiful. However, if you’ve followed Mehmet’s work in the past, you know exactly what level of aesthetic beauty the Turkish designer works on. Khan, in many ways is classic Mehmet, but at the same time it’s just surreal for us mere mortals who have, up until now, only seen relatively normal-looking motorbikes.Erdem’s “Khan” conc...

Bodacious: An 80s style Iron 1200 from Prism Supply Co.

Despite being steeped in the custom scene, Harley-Davidson doesn’t often donate bikes to custom builders. So this Sportster Iron 1200 from Prism Supply Co., dripping with early 80s style, is something of a rarity. It’s a Sporty with an impeccable pedigree: brothers Zach and Jake Hindes built it with input from Dean Micetich of DicE magazine. The Sportster must be the most customized motorcycle platform around the world, but Prism have delivered something special without firing up the grind...

Riding Yagi on Phantom Canyon Road

Glamping again at the Penrose BLM site.After work, rode over to CO State Highway 67, aka Phantom Canyon Road.  It used to be a railroad route between the town of Florence and Cripple Creek.  Apparently a lot of gold was transported by train back in the day.Nowadays it's a pretty smooth dirt road with two narrow railroad tunnels and one remaining steel bridge (I think it's been restored, looks too good).  Towering, rocky canyon walls  The southern or Lower Tunnel entrance  The nor...

Upgrades Your Ducati Scrambler With This Sick Yoshimura Slip-On Exhaust

Your Scrambler Will Never Have Sounded So Good The Ducati Scrambler is one of those bikes that seemed to scratch people right where they itched. It looks undeniably cool, offers good on-road qualities and some minor off-road game, and even provides a good platform for customization. While you can do just about anything to these bikes from a customizing standpoint, a good way to change it just a bit is to add a custom exhaust. That’s where this custom exhaust from Yoshimura comes in. The company...

The 2019 Handbuilt Motorcycle Show

Words by Justin Benson | Photography by Speedy Donahue Sometimes we revive old motorcycles, and sometimes they revive us. Every April for the last 6 years, Revival Cycles plays host to a moto gathering that quite literally brings one back to life. Scorn from long winters of blizzards, cars not starting, and frozen nether-regions, it’s the exact type of event to put fuel in our tanks, and melt the icicles off our dipstick. Let me tell you – this year’s show was no exception. The 747 steel bir...

Get Excited for the 2019 Isle of Man TT Race by Watching This Trailer

A Race Like No Other The Isle of Man TT Race is one of the most insane events in the world. Every year thousands of people flock to a small island in the middle of the Irish sea to watch riders shoot down a public road circuit at freakishly high speeds. It’s the stuff of motorsport legend, and racers die pushing the limits. I’ve never been to the Isle of Man. It was on my list of places to go when I visited Europe last year, but I didn’t make it there. Also, I wouldn’t have been there when the ...
