Krugger adds street smarts to the Triumph Scrambler

We love show bikes for their cutting edge design concepts, wild engineering and straight-line performance—but they’re not much use in the real world. On the opposite side of the spectrum, there are customs that aim for maximum usability, by cleverly blending form and function. Most builders stick to just one of those camps, but Fred ‘Krugger’ Bertrand plays at both ends of the field. The Belgian maestro has won multiple AMD World Championships, but he’s just as happy to build ‘practical’ bike...

IN YOUR DREAMS: Kawasaki ‘Nightmare’ Flat Tracker

Written by Martin Hodgson Telling someone ‘it can’t be done’ has proven to be one of history’s great motivators; Einstein and Edison were considered too dumb by their teachers to amount to anything, billionaire vacuum cleaner mogul Sir James Dyson couldn’t get a single company to look at his designs and Stephen Spielberg was rejected from film school, TWICE! So when Ryan Maloney was told by everyone that building a Grand National Flat Track bike for the street was ridiculous, it only lit a fir...

A London startup uses artificial intelligence to insert ads into videos, and it just signed an exclusive deal with publisher Condé Nast

London startup Mirriad uses AI to insert ads and products into pre-existing videos, and it just signed an exclusive ad deal with Condé Nast. This move is part of the publisher's effort to monetize its properties and become a "video-first" business. Mirriad CEO Stephan Beringer said advertisers can use its technology to, say, have their products or ads appear in all scenes set in living rooms or breakfast environments across Condé Nast properties. Mirriad has already used its technology to inse...

Inch perfect: A Ducati Hypermotard 939 from Rough Crafts

There are motorcycles that are considered so sacred, you wouldn’t dare customize them. And there are motorcycles that work so well out the box, you probably wouldn’t want to customize them, even if the opportunity presented itself. We’d file the Ducati Hypermotard 939 in that last category. Its torquey Testastretta L-twin motor makes ample power (110 hp), it weighs just 450 pound wet, and it has dynamite handling. It looks pretty cool in stock trim too… so why bother? Well, Taiwan-based Ro...

Thor: A next-level R nineT Urban G/S from Sweden

Using a BMW R nineT Urban G/S as a base, this blacked-out and carbon-fiber clad scrambler mixes craftsmanship with a generous helping of post-apocalyptic style. ‘Thor’ is the work of Anton Knutsson of Injustice Customs, who decided to reinvent the classic ‘desert sled’ look for the colder, muddier climate of Sweden. Anton started Injustice Customs in 2016, but his love of motorcycles goes much further back. His father was a European four-stroke dirt bike champ, and Anton followed in his ti...

Hedge fund Marshall Wace is a secret winner in the Amazon-led $575 million funding round for food-delivery company Deliveroo

Amazon just led a round of funding for London-based Deliveroo worth $575 million that pushed down the stocks of competitors Just Eat, Takeaway.com and Uber.  Hedge fund Marshall Wace emerged as a winner from the deal, as it had three shorts on Deliveroo competitors.  For more stories like this, visit Business Insider's homepage.

Drag Bike: A 130 hp nitrous-fueled Indian Scout Bobber

Right now, thousands of fans and motorcycles are converging on Monza for The Reunion—a weekend-long celebration of custom motorcycle culture. It’s also where the first round of the Sultans of Sprint sprint race series is happening. And that means that a whole lot of new race bikes are breaking cover. This is the first one we’ve seen this season, and it’s set the bar impossibly high. Named ‘Appaloosa,’ it’s a 2018-model Indian Scout Bobber that’s been masterfully overhauled by Brice Hennebert,...

Arresting: Renard’s ex-police BMW K75 RT

There’s a clean , sharp vibe to the bikes that come out of Renard Speed Shop. Estonia’s finest custom builders don’t have a fixed signature style, but the machines from the Tallinn workshop are always beautifully finished and pack a strong visual punch. This brightly colored K75 RT is Renard’s 26th creation, and it’s probably their most in-your-face build to date. Perhaps because this unusual BMW has just as much Italian blood as German… The BMW ‘bricks’ may not be pretty, but they’re tough...

Custom Bikes Of The Week: 28 April, 2019

Each week, we scour the internet to bring you the juiciest five motorcycles that we haven’t already featured. Today we’ve got a Yamaha SR500 street tracker from Milan, a BMW R nineT from Belgium, and a vintage Norton from Luxembourg. Plus Steve McQueen’s Husky, and a Bōsōzoku-inspired contraption from the lads at CROIG. Yamaha SR500 by Deus Milano The crew at Deus Milano put the blame for this project squarely on Marco Belli’s shoulders. Marco’s a highly decorated flat track racer, that r...

The Keeper: Gasoline builds a BMW R series for Cam Elkins

You may not know the name Cam Elkins, but there’s a good chance you’re familiar with his work. He’s the man behind the brilliant short films called Stories of Bike, which explore the relationships between custom motorcycles and their owners. After several years filming other people’s bikes, Cam decided it was time to get a custom of his own. He selected a 1986 BMW R65. “I’ve always loved boxer engines,” he tells us. “I think they’re reminiscent of old WW2 airplanes, which had such a sleek ...

Spirit of the XLCR: A Fat Bob custom from Blacktrack

Blacktrack Motors have got cafe racer design down to a fine art. Their first build was one of the sharpest Honda CX500 cafes we’ve ever featured, and they followed it up with a pixel perfect custom Thruxton. Now they’ve tackled their most ambitious project yet, the BT-03—a cafe racer based on the Harley-Davidson Fat Bob 114 FXFBS. The Fat Bob 114 is one of the most fun bikes in Harley’s range. Its 114 ci power plant generates 155 Nm of torque, and handling from the new generation Softail ...

Custom Heritage Softail: One Way Machine’s ‘Quartermile’

When Harley-Davidson celebrated its 115th anniversary with a party in Prague earlier this year, it invited a select few builders to present a custom Harley each. And with a remarkable three AMD World Championship podiums to his name, Julian von Oheimb was an obvious inclusion. The German builder—who operates as One Way Machine—has a knack for turning Harleys into subtle, tasteful customs, and his anniversary build is a stunning example. Called Quartermile, it’s a dark and minimal bobber imbue...

Rough Crafts customizes the Royal Enfield Continental GT

We haven’t ridden the brand new Royal Enfield Continental GT yet, but early reviews are positive. The 648 cc parallel twin has the vintage look dialed in, and is reportedly a smooth, easy-going ride. It’s expected to retail for between $5,999 and $6,749 (depending on color) when it hits dealers next year. Which also makes it excellent value—especially if you’re looking for a brand new bike to customize. Enfield themselves are pushing the custom angle hard with the Continental GT, and its m...

FLYING LOCUST. Analog Motorcycle’s ‘Grasshopper’ Royal Enfield Scrambler

Written by Martin Hodgson When you are given the chance to be the first you only have one shot, so you better make it count. With the launch of the all new Royal Enfield twin, the builders chosen to produce a custom for the company had a chance to produce the bike in their chosen style for the very first time. Keen to avoid the well-worn path and not follow trends, Tony Prust of Chicago’s Analog Motorcycles had an idea he knew would be different in the best possible way. Nicknamed ‘Grasshoppe...

Rough Crafts builds the Monster café that Ducati won’t

As everyone keeps saying, Ducati has missed a trick by not having a contemporary SportClassic in its range. Rough Crafts is here to show us what could be done, with this superb Ducati Monster-based café racer. It doesn’t quite cut the same silhouette as the original SportClassic. But according to Rough Crafts’ Winston Yeh, that was never the point. Drawing inspiration from the half-faired Paul Smart version of the iconic Duc, he set out to re-interpret rather than replicate it. The result ...

Extreme Machine: Unscrambling the Triumph Scrambler

Scramblers are still very much on trend—and the Triumph Scrambler is one of the coolest examples of the breed. But when Justin Webster got his hands on one, he saw potential for something much wilder. He’s effectively unscrambled this Scrambler 900, transforming it into a tire-shredding, street tracker-styled liter bike—with a touch of cafe racer flair. And it’s such a coherent build, it could easily be mistaken for an OEM concept. Justin runs J. Webster Designs as a one-man-band out of Ga...

Caffè Nero: Lossa Engineering’s Ducati 900SS

Jay LaRossa is one of those guys who was probably born with copper grease under his fingernails. His parents ran motorcycle dealerships, and as a kid he spent his weekends at racetracks and motor shows. After a stint building hot rods and custom trucks for export around the world, Jay returned to his first love: two wheels. Since 2007 he’s been running Lossa Engineering in Signal Hill, California—and carving out a rep for fast, focused customs designed more for performance than posing. Like t...

CORDON BLUR. Schlachtwerk’s Tricolour Kawasaki W800 Racer

Written by Martin Hodgson As modern retros go, Kawasaki hit the nail on the head with their re-imagining of the W series bikes from the ’60s. In fact, the ‘new’ W’s bevel driven twin cylinder engine is even more of a classic than the original. But as an overall package they’ve always needed a little more panache and nobody does it better than the W whisperer himself, Tom Thöring of Schlachtwerk. Fresh off the back of their insane W650 drag bike, the German shop returns with No. 28, a 2011 W80...

Tall Order: Rough Crafts’ bigger, badder Ducati XDiavel S

Winston Yeh has one of the sharpest eyes in the business. His Rough Crafts style is instantly recognizable, and constantly evolving. The Taiwanese wunderkind first cut his teeth on Harley-Davidsons, but we’ve since seen him turn out bikes from BMW, Yamaha and Ducati. The challenge, he says, is to apply his signature aesthetic in a way that looks “just right,” whatever the donor. The latest Rough Crafts release is built on the most interesting platform yet: a Ducati XDiavel S from 2016. In ...

FIRST LADY. Alessandro Borroni’s ‘UNA’ Ducati 999 Cafe Racer

Written by Andrew Jones “I had bought, ridden, tracked and crashed more than a few Ducatis,” says San Francisco’s Alessandro Borroni. “I felt that they lacked the soul and aesthetics of a bike that would make me want to get on and ride again and again. But there were parts of some Ducatis I thought were worth saving. Then one day I saw a Shinya Kimura custom and fell in love with the idea of doing a raw aluminum cafe racer with an exposed frame and integral, air-cooled motor. I had some ideas...

Quality Time: Customizing a scrambler for father and son

All parents love to surprise their offspring with presents. But how often do those gifts take the form of a bespoke motorcycle? Thierry and his son Nelson like to ride together around their home country of Switzerland. And then Thierry decided it was time to surprise his son with a new ride, so he rang up BAAK Motocyclettes of Lyon, just over the border in France. “Thierry is an enthusiast,” the BAAK crew tell us. “He owns several bikes, and he’s particularly attracted to motorcycles that ...

NO FORKS GIVEN. JSK Moto Co’s ‘Rhodium Omega’ Yamaha GTS 1000 Neo Racer

Written by Martin Hodgson In a time when there has never been so many different models of new motorcycles to choose from there is also a feeling that many, despite the manufacturer, are really just the same. But every so often in the history of the industry there is a short burst where the rules are thrown aside and in the early ’90s one such bike caught an enthusiastic eye. Now with the money to own that very bike, he’s turned to Samuel Kao of JSK Moto and with his most vivid of imaginatio...

Raging Dagger: Rough Crafts hot rods the Harley 48

When it comes to high-end Sportster customs, the weapon of choice for most builders is the Forty-Eight. Winston Yeh of Rough Crafts knows the model well: his Bomb Runner from six years ago is still a stunning example of the genre, and he’s built several more since. This new Forty-Eight is one of the sportiest Harley rebuilds we’ve seen, with the stance (and geometry) of a sportbike, and a weight drop of 40 kilos—almost 90 pounds). The brief for ‘Raging Dagger’ came from a most unusual dire...

Privacy, Data Woes Pile Up for Facebook and Google

As the fallout continues from recent news reports detailing how Facebook enabled "digital warfare" based on its users' personal data, Google is also facing heat for the vast troves of information it collects about people.

Cambridge Analytica worked for then-candidate and ...

Hot Rod Alice: A Honda CB750K ten years in the making

Custom builders often cringe at the sight of their first project. But not Craig Marleau of California’s Kick Start Garage. He still has a soft spot for the CB750 he built over ten years ago, and decided to update it for the future. “My first custom bike was that Honda. I built it for myself and other people liked it. Ratrod culture was on the rise, and I’d always liked that look, so my build was very ratrod-like. It was pretty rude.” With more than a decade of distance between now and his ...

Ray of Sunshine: Daniel Peter’s Yamaha SR500 Scrambler

Scramblers are a hot topic. Build one, and you’re sure to be judged solely by how well equipped it is for hardcore off-piste use. But that’s not all that scramblers are about. Daniel Peter compares his latest build to his childhood BMX—and it’s pretty much how we feel about modern-day scramblers too. “When I was four years old, my BMX bike became my life,” he explains. “It was so simple, yet so fun. Just wheels, pedals and brakes. I’d ride it to the beach, jump a few curbs along the way, r...

Autobahn Streak: JSK takes on the BMW R nineT

Judging public opinion is a fickle business. So when a builder hits on a concept that works, it’s tempting to get comfortable and stick to the formula. The first build we featured from California-based JSK Moto was a sweet BMW R nineT-based scrambler. It spread like wildfire, and even landed on BMW Motorrad’s radar. But rather than build a series of sequels, JSK point man Samuel Kao followed up with a couple of diverse and pretty zany bikes. Now, almost two and a half years later, he’s com...
