This BMW R nineT is a homage to Rickman Métisse

In the world of vintage desert sleds, the Rickman Triumph Métisse reigns supreme. It was a pretty legit scrambler in its day, and also one of best-looking motorcycles from that era. For VTR Customs boss Dani Weidmann, though, there’s an even deeper connection. Back in the 80s, 17-year-old Dani took an apprenticeship at a company called Meier & Lutziger—the Swiss importer of Rickman frames and parts. Dani fell in love with the classy design of these throwback sleds. When the VTR Customs cr...

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 ...

LAND DOWN UNTER. Schlachtwerk’s Aussie-Bound Kawasaki W650

Written by Martin Hodgson They say a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step; but for one particular German it only makes sense to begin with a Kawasaki W650. Tommy Thöring has been a mainstay of the European custom motorcycle scene for years and is a regular on the Sultans of Sprint travelling circus. But now he’s packing up his Schlachtwerk operation and heading for the Land Down Under. Sydney to be exact. So to prepare for this next chapter of his journey he’s built a bike to...

Shitanes 61: VTR Customs’ outrageous BMW R nineT

There’s a lot to be said for elegance and subtlety. And there’s also a time and place for going completely over the top. Dani Weidmann and his crew at the Swiss shop VTR Customs can play it both ways. This time, they’ve turned the volume up to 11 and built a BMW R nineT that’s about as subtle as an AC/DC riff. It’s got 136 hp, a stonking 145 Nm of torque, and it’s called ‘Shitanes 61’—a reference to the famous Gitanes motor racing livery from the 1980s. The story starts at the last Swiss ...

FORREST GRUMP. Woidwerk’s ‘Mad Fritz’ BMW R80 Cafe Roadster

Written by Andrew Jones If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise. Namely, Ralf from Bavaria’s Woidwerk motorcycles (literally, ‘Forest Factory’) tearing shit up on his latest creation, a BMW R80 he calls ‘Mad Fritz’. Well, you’d be mad too if you looked this good and had to spend all your time hidden in a forest. “I grew up with motorcycles and wrenching ,” says Ralf from inside the forest. “Even today, my grandfather is still a motorcyclist at the age of 86 and h...

Plug and Play: A scrambler kit for the BMW R nine T

One of the BMW R nineT’s biggest strengths is its modular construction. You can unbolt the rear part of the frame, and unplug sections of the wiring harness without bricking the electronics. It’s good news for pro builders, and even better news for weekend warriors who want to change things up without too much sweat. The German custom shop Hookie Co. has now exploited this feature with a sharp new scrambler kit for the BMW R nineT. And the bike you see here can be built in an afternoon by any...

Ready to Wear: Kaspeed’s slinky Nighthawk 750

We’ve noticed an encouraging trend amongst custom shops lately: they’re offering made-to-order customs alongside their one-off specials. Diamond Atelier have enjoyed success with their Mark II BMW boxer builds, and deBolex Engineering have hinted at an imminent ready-to-wear range. Limited production runs take a lot of the guesswork out of the custom business: both the builder and customer know exactly what they’re in for. Germany’s Kaspeed Moto have now thrown their hat in the ring, using th...

What Is Affect or Emotion Dysregulation?

In research, clinical and therapeutic settings, we sometimes use the term Affect Dysregulation. Affect is the clinical term that is used to describe emotions and feelings. Many practitioners also use the term Emotion Dysregulation. Essentially, Affect Dysregulation and Emotion Dysregulation are interchangeable terms in the psychiatric literature. What is Affect/Emotion Dysregulation? Emotion Dysregulation may be thought of as the inability to manage the intensity and duration of ne...

Class Act: A Triton cafe racer by Foundry Motorcycle

Few custom motorcycles have the cachet of the legendary Triton. The mash-up of a Norton featherbed frame and Triumph twin motor has become a demigod icon of the café racer movement. As we all know, back in the 60s the idea was to combine the best chassis with the best motor. But half a century later, you can buy showroom machines that’ll run rings around most Tritons. And for a fraction of what it would cost to build one. So we were surprised to learn that the owner of this beautifully cra...

Stunning Sigrid: A most unusual BMW R90/6 from Titan

There’s a downside to the current popularity of BMW customs: a certain ‘sameness’ creeping in. After all, there are only so many ways you can tweak that familiar frame and boxer engine. This new build from Austria’s Titan Motorcycles is very different, though—and unlike many builds that try to be different, it works beautifully. You’d never guess, but it’s based on an R90/6 from the 1970s, which means it has the 898 cc version of the venerable air-cooled motor. Titan’s Michael Siebenhofer ...

DIAMOND ON THE ROUGH. The Ducati ‘SCRMBLR’ by Germany’s Diamond Atelier

Written by Martin Hodgson Out of nowhere they burst onto the scene and like the proverbial classic rock band, each new release went straight to number one. From Munich in Germany, custom bike shop Diamond Atelier have been a dominant custom player in recent years with a string of show-winning bikes and a sell-out series called the ‘Mark II’. Now founders Tom Konecny and Pablo Steigleder are going back to where it all began, with new ideas and new possibilities, but all while keeping that sa...

PURE AT HEART. The ‘ST33’ BMW R NineT Street Tracker from VTR Customs

Written by Andrew Jones We think it’s fair to say that BMW’s R NineT has made a sizeable impact on the global custom scene since it was launched in 2014. Here was a new bike from a respected brand that builders could actually get excited about modifying. No more begrudgingly done modern customisations with whispered wishes that it was actually a classic from the 70s. No siree. The R nineT had its own look that was cool right out of the box, yet adaptable enough to allow creative minds their o...

Endurance racer tribute: VTR Customs’ wild BMW K100

If there was ever a golden age of motorcycle racing, we’d pin it on the late 70s and early 80s. Those were the days of the endurance racers, when hairy-chested pilots wrangled big four-strokes around the track for hours on end. Honda, Kawasaki and Suzuki battled Italian exotica from Laverda, Ducati and Moto Guzzi, with the added danger of pit stops for extra fuel and fresh rubber. We’re unlikely to see a return to these exciting times—but there’s a resurgence of interest in the era, and it’s...

KM22: Every great custom Guzzi, distilled into one

If there was ever a blueprint for the ultimate Moto Guzzi cafe racer, this is it. Kaffeemaschine’s latest build has the perfect stance, the perfect tank, and that iconic engine—blacked out, which of course draws even more attention to it. Builder Axel Budde has been tantalizing us with his Le Mans-based customs for seven years now, and we never tire of them. There always seems to be a little bit extra or a little bit different in each build, but this machine, KM22, tops the lot. “This bike...

Back In Black: A Bonneville cafe racer resurrection

It’s a familiar story: a treasured bike, a crash, and then a rebuild. Except this isn’t a streetfighter: it’s a low-slung Triumph Bonneville with a serious set of upgrades. ‘Blak’ is the work of Gasoline, a Sydney shop that doesn’t (yet) have the worldwide fame of its neighbor Deus, but is fast building a reputation. The bike belongs to a Gasoline client called ‘Mixy,’ who was fortunately less damaged than his bike after the crash. “When his 2014 Triumph arrived, it was in shabby but repai...

Diamond Atelier puts the Mark II Series into production

Building custom motorcycles for a living sounds like a dream. Who wouldn’t want to spend all day in the workshop—getting their hands dirty and letting their creativity run wild? The reality is, it takes more than talent and a shed full of tools to create a sustainable business; you need a good head for business too. And despite their tender years, Tom Konecny and Pablo Steigleder of Munich’s Diamond Atelier are two of the most switched on dudes we’ve met. We haven’t heard from Diamond in a w...
