Dunlop Builds Its First Motorcycle Drag Racing Tire

Get Ready to Lay Down Some Rubber Dunlop has never really tried to create a motorcycle drag racing tire, until now. Meet the Dragmax. It comes in 190/50ZR17 size, which is the most popular size for serious drag-racing competitors on metric and V-twin motorcycles. The Dragmax is a radial tire. It uses Dunlop’s exclusive N-TEC construction. The tire is in some ways similar to the Dunlop road racing slicks, but with some tweaks setting it apart. The N-Tec construction, according to a press release...

Custom Bikes Of The Week: 22 March, 2020

A show stopping Yamaha GTS 1000 from Italy, a neo-retro Yamaha XT250 from Australia, and a very slick body kit for the BMW R nineT from France. Yamaha XT250 by Deus ex Machina The Deus Swank rally is a light-hearted off-road event that combines “vintage motorcycles, fancy dress and a can-do attitude.” So when Yamaha asked Deus Australia to build a bike that would embody the Swank spirit, head wrench Jeremy Tagand picked the XT250. After all, it might only be a small, air-cooled single—but ...

The Divisionist: Federal Moto’s first BMW bobber

Some custom shops crank out the same style of build, over and over again. But for Federal Moto that would be terminal. Their crew is young, eager to experiment and wary of stagnation. So when a local film production company approached Federal to build a custom bike, they picked a genre they hadn’t yet tackled. For their seventeenth project, commissioned by Divisionist Films, the Chicago workshop created their first BMW-powered bobber. “Eight years ago we started off as a ‘cafe racer’ cust...

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...

The War on Air Continues

The great Sheldon Brown wrote these words on the subject of airless tires: Of all the inventions that came out of the bicycle industry, probably none is as important and useful as Dr. Dunlop's pneumatic tire. Airless tires have been obsolete for over a century, but crackpot "inventors" keep trying to bring them back. They are heavy, slow and give a harsh ride. They are also likely to cause wheel damage, due to their poor cushioning ability. A pneumatic tire uses all of the air in the whol...

An Electra Glide built for Austrian mountain passes

If you’re looking for a classic American tourer, a Harley Electra Glide is just the ticket. They were popular with police departments for a good reason: few machines could match their all-day riding comfort. But if you like to carve the canyons of LA, or European mountain passes, the Electra Glide is likely way down on your list. Which is exactly why Wolfgang Mayerl picked one to customize. Wolfgang’s a mechanical engineer living in the tiny Austrian town of Ardning, a popular spot for hik...

Bucephalus: A Norton Commando 850 from FCR Original

The Commando is one of the all-time greats of the motorcycle industry. In Britain, its status is iconic: even people with no interest in motorcycling know of it, or know someone who used to own one. Seventies-era Nortons can be temperamental though—troublesome to own and expensive to repair. So we’re always pleased to see one that has been rescued from the scrapheap and restored. Or even better, resto-modded with tasteful upgrades. This gorgeous 850 Mk 3 with a hint of street tracker style...

Team Nike or Team Adidas

Today’s poll asks you to choose between two of the biggest athletic brands in the world: Nike and Adidas. Nike is American, and Adidas is German. Adidas is the slightly older company, and Nike is the slightly larger company. For as long as I can remember, these brands have competed with each other for market share, sales, and brand loyalty.  I’m not athletic, but I greatly appreciate both of these brilliant brands and their products. Their items have a high longevity factor, and are always in st...

3 Months of Learning Guitar

I started learning to play guitar about three months ago, so here’s an update on how it’s going and what the experience has been like so far. What I’ve Learned I’ve learned a lot so far, but I also feel like I can’t really do much yet. If someone were to watch me play, I don’t think they’d be impressed by what I can presently do. I’m still learning lots of basics.I’ve been pretty consistent with my lessons and practice. Every Saturday I have a 30-minute in-person lesson, although I’ve missed a f...

FAMILY AFFAIR – ‘Zeus’ Drag Bike

Photography by Tadashi Kono Growing up as a kid, Kevin Busch always looked up to his Grandfather. You see, his Grandfather was a mechanic, fabricator and engine builder who had a passion for going fast. He used to build drag bikes in the 1950s and his JAP drag bike was one of his favourite builds, built and raced by him and few of his friends until 1960. “After 1960 the bike was taken apart as they had all moved onto racing dragsters” says Kevin. “Some of the bike was parted and was forgotten ...

Review: Riding the new Indian FTR 1200

For a brand that only relaunched five years ago, Indian Motorcycle is making some bold moves. The Scout FTR750 racebike has cleaned up in the flat track scene and Indian has now released a matching flat tracker for the street: the hotly anticipated FTR 1200. When the FTR1200 Custom concept broke cover 18 months ago, everyone with a pulse and a love for two wheels went all giddy. And even though the production-ready FTR 1200 has been watered down by practical and regulatory considerations, it’...

Revival Cycles ‘Birdcage BMW’

Words by Justin Benson. Revival Cycles’ latest build; “The Birdcage”, at first glance – looks to be the work of a madman. Showcasing BMW’s newest prototype boxer engine, the frame is entirely comprised of titanium (a first for the Revival team), made up of 150 separate pieces, taking a full 2 weeks, day and night, to finish welding. Almost every piece on the bike was fabricated in house, with great attention paid to design, function, and most importantly – weight. The asymmetrical frame of “Th...

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. Plan B’s ‘Flyin’ ’57’ Bianchi Moonshine Racer

Written by Martin Hodgson As closely related as they are the custom worlds of two and four wheels rarely meet, having developed entirely distinctive cultures over the last hundred years. But that wasn’t always the case. The original Hot Rodders and Cutdown bikes of all kinds shared a common philosophy of shoving the biggest engine into the smallest frame possible. Now Italy’s Plan B Motorcycles has taken things full circle and in the age of high-tech, they have built a proper Moonshine Racer....

You go full metal jacket on a breathtaking Urban Enduro that’ll cruise with Bentleys on the Boulevard, before heading to the hills where the stars live to rip it up on the rough and rugged roads.
