JEWEL, BRITANNIA. Old Empire’s ‘Gypsy’ Honda CB360 Cafe Racer

Written by Marlon Slack When you’re as good as Suffolk’s Old Empire Motorcycles you don’t need to go hunting for work. Hell, their incredible history of customising classic motorcycles has customers practically begging them to create a bike. And that’s what’s happened with their latest creation, a 1976 Honda CB360 that the client had to harass, harangue and coerce them into building. And we’re all the better for it. The customer initially approached the team after ogling one of their first...

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...

“Children Of The Damned”: The Superb Artworks Of Ástor Alexander In Classic Sci-Fi And Noir

Imagine a combination of low-budget spaghetti westerns and Pixar cartoons, such as Toy Story. What world would it be set in and what stories would we be able to see? In fact, such a story has been at the center of attention of an American illustrator, Ástor Alexander. Ástor Alexander is a San Diego-based illustrator and painter whose main body of work focuses on the combination of digital art and... Source

Romantic Blush & White Central Florida Wedding

It’s all about timeless romance with today’s Central Florida wedding from V-List planner and floral designer Ashton Events. A neutral lover’s dream, Zoe and Jode’s wedding was filled with soft hues of creams, grays, and barely there blush. The florals by Ashton Events were lush and greenery filled, with Haus 820 as the perfect blank canvas for all the dreamy details. Lace tablecloths by Marilyn’s Linens added a perfect touch of vintage elegance to balance the modern industrial venue. And afte...

MOTO PHOTOS: 2019 MBE Show, Verona, Italy

Written by Andrew Jones When you think about it, Italy having one of the world’s biggest and best bike shows makes total sense. Like Japan with their bullet trains and the Swiss being so good at watches, motorcycles seem to be at the very heart of the Italian psyche. And one visit to a show like Motor Bike Expo 2019 only drives the point home. It’s not wall-to-wall factory bikes or a bunch of business types ‘shifting units’ and exchanging email addresses. It’s honest-to-goodness, grass-roots ...

FIFTY SHADES OF GREAT. Auto Fabrica’s Monochrome ‘Type 10B’ BMW R65

Written by Martin Hodgson When it comes to customising a motorcycle the ‘what’ hasn’t changed for more than 100 years; speed, sight and sound. But the ‘how’ has been constantly evolving and we regularly feature those at the cutting edge. One such firm is UK-based Auto Fabrica, who entered the scene six years ago firing on all cylinders and continue to refine their incredible designs. Brothers Bujar and Gazmend Muharremi can do it all under one roof and utilising the latest technology deliver ...

BOXER BULLION. Untitled’s ‘Silver City’ BMW R80 Street Scrambler

Written by Marlon Slack We’ve had more airheads through here than a cheerleading college. We’ve had bobbers, choppers, cafe racers, trackers and everything in between. So we here at Pipeburn can pick a killer R-series BMW build from a mile away. And here’s one of the best, a glorious BMW R80 by Untitled Motorcycles dubbed the Silver City. It’s been a bittersweet twelve months for the crew at Untitled. Business has been kicking over nicely at their London and San Francisco offices, but last...

KESSEL COFFEE RUN. Ironwood’s ‘Latte Stormtrooper’ BMW R80 Bobber

Written by Andrew Jones Since 2012, Dutch shop Ironwood Motorcycles have pretty much dominated the classic BMW custom market in Western Europe. So much so, that their style has pretty much become shorthand for an entire genre of custom Beemers. And while many may have copied, it’s their ability to break the mould and think outside the square of their own fame that proves they’ve still got what it takes. Like this ‘85 BMW R80 bobber, for instance. Just like a old-school southern haircut, it’s ...

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...

MOTO PHOTOS: 2019 One Moto Show, Portland, Oregon

Written by Scott Hopkin It’s crazy to think that nine years ago we featured a few bikes from a random little show in Portland called the ‘One Moto Show’. Then it its second year, it had 75 bikes and around 1500 bike enthusiasts come through the doors to check out this ‘new wave’ of custom bikes. The show was started by a Portland local called Thor Drake. Ten years later and Thor is still cranking out this show – just at a much larger scale. It now features over 200 bikes and thousands of p...

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...

ZEE WHIZ. BGM Cafe Racer’s ’78 Kawasaki Z400 Street Scrambler

Written by Marlon Slack BGM Cafe Racers’ Tonie Wishart is trying to redeem himself. Years ago his father brought a bike home, an old Kawasaki G4TR 100, which Tonie successfully pulled apart and unsuccessfully put back together. Now, years later and with a hell of a lot more experience under his belt, Tonie and the team from BGM have turned out this, a cracking 1979 Kawasaki Z400 street scrambler. It’s even more impressive when you consider the donor bike they were working with. “I bought i...

COOL RUNNINGS. Banb Motorcycle’s ‘Zumax’ Suzuki GSX750 Inazuma Racer

Written by Andrew Jones Ostentatious oil coolers have been a stock-in-trade item for Japanese car customisers for decades. Lifted from racing car stylings of the 70s and 80s, the more ridiculous its placement and the route the oil lines take, the more street cred the cars seem to have. Now an essential part of the Japanese ‘Shakotan’ style, it’s part of a plethora of cool custom ideas developed in Japan since the dawn of time. But has it ever been attempted on a custom bike? Well, it has now....

Organic Coastal Inspired Clearwater Beach Wedding

Friends, I’m not quite sure any of my words are going to do this gorgeous Clearwater Beach wedding justice. Not only because of it’s beauty, but because it’s my best friend’s wedding! My best friend Meg has been one of my biggest cheerleaders in these 9 years of Every Last Detail, so naturally, she knew exactly what to do when her fiance, Ralph, slipped a stunning (morganite) engagement ring on her finger. She knew that she needed to invest in a wedding planner right off the bat, so she turned t...

COOL CHANGE. Benjie’s Classic Harley Softail Bobber

Written by Andrew Jones When the new wave of Japanese customs rocked up in the late noughties, it was like the 70-odd years of custom bike history before that point didn’t exist. We barged into the room  with our new-fangled cafe racers, brats and trackers and turned up our noses at pretty much anything that wasn’t ordained as that month’s hot new trend. But as many shops now ponder their 142nd cafe racer build, the trends that prevailed in the 70s, 80s and 90s are now being seen with new, mo...

MOTO VIDEO: The Sultans of Sprint Season Highlights

  Just a quick post tonight to throw the spotlight onto the 2018 highlights video from our good friends at the unique, exciting and ever so slightly crazy Sultans of Sprint race series. After a great 2018 that included bikes like Bernard Mont’s spectacular ‘Nowhere Faster’, along with the VTR Spitfire BMW and the Schlachtwerk ‘Skinny Beast’ Yamaha that went on to win, we decided to work even more closely with the SOS crew in 2019. Expect the series to be even bigger and better this year...

RESISTANCE IS FUTILE. Pop Bang Classics’ ‘Borg’ Honda CB450

Written by Marlon Slack Living next to the ocean is gorgeous, but as any surf-girted motorcycle nut will tell you, all that salty sea breeze just destroys motorcycles. It eats chrome, dulls aluminum and causes rust to flash up in weeks. So what’s the point of a polished custom if it’s just going to get eaten by the sea? Well, there’s not. That’s how Brisbane’s Pop Bang Classics came up with this, a post-apocalyptic 1971 Honda CB450 dubbed the ‘Borg’. The owner of the ‘Borg, Kenny Smith, ha...

ON THE GAS. Tattoo Customs’ ‘Blue Velvet’ BMW R80RT Cafe Brat

Written by Martin Hodgson Forget the disco-era 1970s or even the golden age of the Renaissance, turns out men have been strutting the streets wearing colourful velvet since 200 BC in China. Personally I’ve never got the trend; unless you’re the legendary American pimp, Bishop Don ‘Magic’ Juan, then you’re probably best leaving the velvet in the draw! Thankfully there’s no goblets, canes or seedy side streets here, just a perfect stripped down and sleek 1985 BMW R80RT. From the creatives minds...

WAR HORSE. David Meyer’s Magestic ‘Balios’ Honda CB550 Cafe Racer

Written by Andrew Jones The parallels between riding a motorcycle and riding a horse are obvious. I’d argue that in a lot of ways, motorcycles are just the industrial revolution version of the good old Equus Caballus. In the 1850s, a horse would provide personal transport, you could use them at work, police would ride them as would soldiers, and they were a hell of a lot of fun on the weekends, too. Channelling this thought, Georgia’s David Meyer has created a happy medium of the two. No, it’...
