Grey Goose: A Moto Guzzi 1100 Sport from San Francisco

One of the wonderful things about customization is that it can breathe new life into otherwise unloved motorcycles. Need proof? Just look at the number of amazing Honda CX500s and Yamaha Viragos on the scene. This Moto Guzzi 1100 Sport is another poster child for realized potential. The original wasn’t the ugliest or slowest bike Moto Guzzi ever made, but despite having 90 horsepower on tap, it was porky and not very exciting. MCN was particularly harsh; “Track days often end in tears,” they ...

Upgrades Your Ducati Scrambler With This Sick Yoshimura Slip-On Exhaust

Your Scrambler Will Never Have Sounded So Good The Ducati Scrambler is one of those bikes that seemed to scratch people right where they itched. It looks undeniably cool, offers good on-road qualities and some minor off-road game, and even provides a good platform for customization. While you can do just about anything to these bikes from a customizing standpoint, a good way to change it just a bit is to add a custom exhaust. That’s where this custom exhaust from Yoshimura comes in. The company...

Bryan Washington's Playlist for His Story Collection "Lot"

In the Book Notes series, authors create and discuss a music playlist that relates in some way to their recently published book.

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....

New school tax floated, feds subpoena Honolulu rail documents, Kaneshiro impeachment postponed, Kauai seeks curbside recycling, more news from all the Hawaiian Islands

Gov. David Ige with schoolchildren, courtesy photo The state Education Department and teachers are now backing another controversial idea to raise money for public schools. A new proposal being considered by lawmakers would raise the statewide general excise tax (the tax consumers pay on just about everything in the islands) half a percent — from 4 percent to 4.5 percent.

BOL’D OVER. Recast Moto’s Stunning Honda CB900F Roadster

Written by Marlon Slack Some motorcycles perfectly reflect a time in history. And the early Honda Bol D’or is a prime example of it. All hard lines and pressed steel wheels, there’s something about it that screams late 70’s optimism and chest hair. But Belarus’ Recast Moto changed that, cutting, shutting and kicking it into a dark, modern . And it all happened by chance. “We visited our friends who bring bikes over from the Netherlands,” Recast’s Latiz Lemark recalls. “In a large hangar w...

Yoshimura Exhaust System and FE Kit Introduced for 2019 Kawasaki ZX-6R

The Revised 2019 Model Gets New Aftermarket Equipment For 2019, Kawasaki added some new tech, revised the styling, and upped the list of features on its mid-level bike, the ZX-6R. The 636cc machine is a bonafide killer in the middleweight segment. The 600cc market has been slashed considerably in the last few years. Kawasaki has managed to keep the ZX-6R relevant and even add new goodies. The ZX-6 gets a revised engine for emissions purposes (power is not affected), updated gearing that favors ...

HIT AND RUN. Ironwood’s ‘Sicario’ Yamaha XT600 Street Tracker

Written by Andrew Jones Motorcycles seem to be the vehicle du jour in Hollywood of late. Whether it’s Mission Impossible, Bourne or Bond, there’s bound to be some cool moto action sequence spread all across their trailers. And without fail, the evil assassins will be the ones riding black bikes, all dressed in black and taking potshots at the lead actor’s beautiful face. Similarly, Dutch customisers Ironwood have also made their latest production all about a hitman, except this one isn’t on a...

Rocket ship: An 80s-style Z800 from Smoked Garage

The Kawasaki Z800 flew under the radar in most countries. It’s good rather than great: a solid, slightly buzzy streetfighter that’s carrying a few too many pounds. It ended up being overshadowed by Yamaha’s all-conquering MT-09. But once you strip off the jagged plastics, there’s a very good base for customization. We’re betting the Z800 will soon be a popular bike for remodeling—not least because it’s packing a hefty 113 hp. And this 2015 model from Indonesia’s Smoked Garage is one of the fi...

FIVE FOR FIGHTING. Pipeburn’s Top 5 Isle of Man TT Bikes

Written by Martin Hodgson Since 1907 man and machine have boarded countless ferries to cross the Irish Sea and compete at the legendary Isle of Man TT; at the beginning of each European summer. It’s no place for the faint of heart, over 260 professional and amateurs alike have lost their lives doing battle on the Snaefell Mountain Course. But in more than a hundred years of racing only World Wars have put a stop to what commentator Murray Walker calls “the greatest motorsport event of any kin...

Trail Weapon: A drone-carrying Yamaha XSR700 scrambler

Velomacchi make some of my favorite motorcycle gear. And the reason their gear is so good is that they spend enough time in the saddle to know what works. They also have an ideal testing ground: the Pacific Northwest. The company is based in Hood River, Oregon—surrounded by hills and forests connected by rugged fire roads. So when Yamaha USA approached them to collaborate on a XSR700 build, it was never going to be anything other than a backcountry explorer. Though the XSR700’s styling is ...

WTF: El Solitario just built two super-practical dirt bikes

A camera pans slowly across a dimly lit workshop—home of The World’s Most Hated Motorcycles. David Borras’ gruff voice spits out a cryptic diatribe. Yep, this an El Solitario movie all right. A minute in, the visuals switch to a forest setting, and we catch a glimpse of the Spanish crew’s latest bikes. Except, curiously, there are no skeletal fairings, and there’s no wacky fabrication either. El Solitario have built something truly unexpected: a pair of utterly practical, highly capable KTM 3...

Beyond Z: The Kawasaki Factory Z900RS Custom Project

It looks like Kawasaki has hit a home run with its new Z900RS retro standard, and no-one in the press corps has even ridden it yet. It’s a homage to the mighty inline fours of yore like the Z1 (below) and based on the well-regarded Z900—itself a cracking performer that Cycle World’s road testers placed ahead of the Triumph Street Triple and Yamaha FZ-09 in a group test a few weeks ago. We haven’t seen such feverish interest in a bike since Husqvarna revealed the Svartpilen and Vitpilen ex...

1,000+ Historic Japanese Illustrated Books Digitized & Put Online by the Smithsonian: From the Edo & Meji Eras (1600-1912)

Surely we've all wondered what we might do as prominent nineteenth-century industrialists, and more than a few of us (especially here in the Open Culture crowd) would no doubt invest our fortunes in the art of the world. Railcar manufacturing magnate Charles Lang Freer did just that, as we can see today in the Freer Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Together with the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery (Sackler having made it as "the father of modern pharmaceutical advertising"), it constitutes the Smit...

Custom Bikes Of The Week: 18 June, 2017

A muscular Honda CB750 cafe from Belgium, a factory custom program from MV Agusta, a striking debut build from Motoism of Munich, and two new design concepts from Scrambler Ducati. Now where did we put our wallets? MV Agusta RVS #1 I’ve always viewed MV Agusta as the Lamborghini to Ducati’s Ferrari. Like the raging bulls, the MV design language leans heavily on testosterone and hypertrophy. And, as such, their products tend to be rare on the streets but maintain cult status. Topping their li...

12 layers of kevlar in bullet proof origami shield

BYU mechanical engineers have created an origami-inspired, lightweight bulletproof shield that can protect law enforcement from gunfire. The new ballistic barrier can be folded compactly when not in use, making it easier to transport and deploy. When expanded — which takes only five seconds — it can provide cover for officers and stop bullets from several types of handguns.“We worked with a federal special agent to understand what their needs were, as well as SWAT teams, police officers and law ...

This Guy Spent His Entire Birthday Going Around Eating Free Food

Obviously, the best part about turning another year older is the cake. And, if that cake comes for free, well, that's just one more reason to celebrate. But what if you had over ten more reasons to celebrate, all in the form of free food? That would be the best birthday ever, right? You may think it's impossible, but a YouTuber named Kent Yoshimura pulled it off on his birthday this year.Before his big birthday adventure, Yoshimura did his research and compiled a list of restaurants, diners, an...
