Tig Notaro Animated Stand Up Special Coming to HBO This Summer

Here’s something groundbreaking for you comedy fans: HBO is going to release the first-ever fully animated stand-up special. I’m not entirely sure how that even works, but the special comes from Tig Notaro. Notaro selected Six Point Harness, whose credits include Hair Love, Lazor Wulf, Guava Island, and Waffles + Mochi, to produce the animation for the special. Tig Notaro, who has a role in the upcoming Zack Snyder zombie heist flick Army of the Dead, is set to lead an animated stand-up spec...

History repeats itself: A Canadian XR750 returns home

Most of the customs we drool over on these pages have little or no history. They’re usually modified after a few mundane years of weekend riding—or transported straight from the showroom floor to the workshop, in the back of a van. Occasionally, though, we happen across a machine with a decades-long backstory. Like this street legal Harley XR750 tracker from Quebec, Canada, which houses a tuned Sportster engine in an XR750 frame. Builder Costa Mouzouris originally created the street tracke...

Mega Thumper: Unik Edition scrambles the Suzuki DR Big

The Suzuki DR 800 S Big is the sort of bike no one would design today. It was the thumper to rule all thumpers, with a whopping 779 cc single-cylinder motor, long-travel suspension, a big front wheel and rally styling. That meant it was a little ridiculous, but sort of cool at the same time. Depending on your perspective, the DR Big’s late 80s to early 90s styling is either retro-fabulous, or hasn’t dated well. And while it has something of a cult following, it’s not considered as untouchable...

2021 Ducati Panigale V2 [Model Overview]

The Panigale For Real Ducati Purists: The Panigale V2 Contents Model Overview Specifications Features Photos Videos Links The Panigale V2 is the last remaining Panigale model that holds on to Ducati’s old-school twin-cylinder roots.

Dominatorr: Motoism’s Honda NX650 street scrambler

Boundaries are getting blurred in the custom scene. Genre-hopping bikes are everywhere, and it’s getting harder and harder to pigeonhole many builds. We reckon that’s a good thing, and so do the creators of this very sharp Honda Dominator. Brothers Lion and Ben Ott, of Motoism in Munich, felt a need for bikes that escape the definition of a classic cafe racer. They felt the urge to build “something different that is comfortable to ride and delivers good performance, but also embraces the dark...

Master of Metal: Shiny Hammer’s Moto Guzzi 1000SP

We’re suckers for classic Moto Guzzi café racers. But we like it even more when someone messes up the recipe a little. As with this sleek and quirky 1000 SP from France—which mixes conventional and unorthodox styling cues to great effect. It comes from Samuel Aguiar, a multi-talented chap who designs furniture as well as motorcycles. He runs the Shiny Hammer workshop in Saint-Quentin, a town near the border of Belgium in northern France. Samuel’s previous creations include a Rocketeer-styl...

Super-Supermoto: A KTM 990 SMT from New Zealand

KTM made their bones with dirt bikes, but these days they’re just as well known for their wild street bikes. Their hit list includes models like the KTM 990 Supermoto—a 999.8 cc v-twin motard with aggressive lines and decent components. First released in 2008, it came in two variants: the purist 990 SMR, and later the more touring-focused 990 SMT. The SMT was still a goer, but weighed more and looked weird, thanks to its deeply stepped seat and its nose fairing. But hobby builder Nick Murray’...

These parts are typical, but be no means exhaustive of the different materials, thicknesses and finishes that we are requested to produce on a daily basis by our customers. Often using simple standard CNC punching and CNC b...

Gold Standard: Unik Edition’s stunning Honda Seven-Fifty

We love to hear success stories from builders, and Tiago Gonçalves and Luis Gonçalves of Unik Edition are on a roll. The Portuguese duo first hit our radar four years ago, and now have a crew of seven in their shop. In the last two years Unik have ‘gone pro’ and delivered 28 customs. Despite the shared surname, Tiago and Luis not brothers—but they have a common vision and a good eye for style.

Back In Black: A Ducati 900 SS from Belgium

The motorcycle designer Pierre Terblanche is famous for his Ducatis, but not always in a good way. Most folks would give the SportClassics and Supermono a big tick, and there are a lot of folks who also like the Hypermotard too (this writer included). But for every hit from the South African designer, it feels like there’s a bike that missed the mark, such as the first-gen Multistrada and the late 90s SuperSport series. Which is good news for custom fans, because no-one cries foul when builde...

A slammed Royal Enfield Interceptor from K-Speed, a gleaming Yamaha TX750 cafe racer from Chicago, a BMW GS given the supermoto treatment, and an inch-perfect Yamaha DT-1 restoration from Germany.

Getting Transparent: Make Every Deal a Fair Deal

Guest post by Marc Effron: Many companies still refuse to be transparent with their employees about their potential to advance. Those companies often say they’re concerned that if some employees are told they have high potential to advance, it will disengage employees who learn they’re not in that category. That’s true only if being a high potential is seen as the only “fair deal” at your company. We believe that it’s beneficial to be transparent with every employe...

Handmade Tale: Building an RD 200 custom from scratch

In the mid 70s, the Yamaha RD 200 delivered more fun than a small capacity motorcycle had any right to. A compact two-stroke, it could cruise easily on the highway and, given a long enough straight, creep past 80 mph (130 kph). The heyday of little two-strokes is long over—in the road going sense, at least. But memories take longer to fade, and Portuguese builders Pedro and Filipe Costa have dug deep into their past to create this stunning custom RD 200. “A taste for motorcycles since chil...

Tokyo Nights: Upgrading the classic Honda CB900F

Unless you can identify a motorcycle just by its engine, you’ll have a hard time pinning down the exact year and model of this muscular Honda four. We’ll clue you in: it’s a 1981 CB900F. But it’s wearing parts from so many different donors, it’s hardly recognizable. Calling it a ‘bitsa’ would be highly unfair though. That’s because owner and builder James Berreau has done such a good job of piecing it together, it looks almost stock—like some forgotten naked bruiser of the 90s. James is b...

CLASSICALLY TRAINED: ‘The Deuce’ Yamaha RD350 by James Berreau

Written by Martin Hodgson It’s easy to look at big workshops full of the latest tools and be envious, imagining if only you had them at your disposal.

Working out of his garage in Minneapolis, James Berreau brings that sort of attitude to the custom bike building game. With just his second build he’s whipped up this stu...
