Custom Bikes Of The Week: 21 April, 2019

21.04.2019

An incredible Norton sidecar racer from Australia, a tribute to NCR co-founder Rino Caracchi from Italy, and a chunky go-anywhere BMW R100GS from the States. Plus news of a land speed record attempt featuring Max Biaggi … on an electric bike. Ducati MHR 1000 Rino Caracchi tribute The NCR name is forever entwined with the racing fortunes of Ducati—most notably when Mike Hailwood used an NCR-built 900 to win the 1978 World Championship at the Isle of Man. NCR co-founder Rino Caracchi passed away recently, and Stile Italiano have paid tribute to his legacy with this sleek custom based on a 1984 MHR 900. And there are performance upgrades aplenty, as befits NCR’s ethos. These include Dell’Orto PHM 40 carbs with velocity stacks, a custom exhaust system built by Virex, Öhlins FG950 forks, Ducati 888 alloy triples, and an Öhlins monoshock.…

Bodacious: An 80s style Iron 1200 from Prism Supply Co.

19.04.2019

Despite being steeped in the custom scene, Harley-Davidson doesn’t often donate bikes to custom builders. So this Sportster Iron 1200 from Prism Supply Co., dripping with early 80s style, is something of a rarity. It’s a Sporty with an impeccable pedigree: brothers Zach and Jake Hindes built it with input from Dean Micetich of DicE magazine. The Sportster must be the most customized motorcycle platform around the world, but Prism have delivered something special without firing up the grinder. “We wanted to build something that looked like it could have rolled off the showroom floor in the early 80s,” Jake tells us. “But we didn’t want to cut the frame or make any major changes.” “The goal was to build a bike with minimal tooling and fabrication, to show the home builder that they can do something similar.” It’s a helluva transformation, thanks to some very clever decision-making.…

The Omen: A Yamaha MT-07 With a Custom Perimeter Frame

18.04.2019

There are many ways to visualize a custom motorcycle before actually putting grinder to metal. Some builders start with a pencil and paper, while others use Photoshop or create 3D renders. But how about building a 1/10th scale model out of stainless steel? It sounds crazy, but that’s how Jake Drummond conceptualized this show-stopping Yamaha MT-07, dubbed ‘The Omen.’ Jake’s only twenty-five years old, and lives in Oshkosh, Wisconsin—but his whole life has revolved around design and engineering. His dad is a motorcycle-obsessed pilot who also rebuilds airplanes—so Jake spent countless hours helping out in the hangar as a kid. He built his first custom bike at seventeen, got a job at a kit aircraft manufacturer right out of school, and eventually studied mechanical engineering.…

Mighty Guerilla: Rough Crafts Takes on the Harley Fat Bob

17.04.2019

It’s been almost nine years since we featured the Rough Crafts ‘Iron Guerilla‘—a murdered-out Harley-Davidson Sportster that flung Taiwanese customizer Winston Yeh firmly into the spotlight. It was only Winston’s second build, but it immediately established his signature style. You’ll still find traces of the Iron Guerilla’s DNA in Winston’s work today. And it spawned a catalogue of Rough Crafts parts that still sell well (and are frequently copied). Now, for his latest release, Winston’s gone right back to his roots. This is the ‘Mighty Guerilla’—an updated take on the classic Rough Crafts Guerilla formula, based on a 2018 Harley-Davidson Fat Bob 107. The project landed in Winston’s lap as a commissioned build with an open brief. When he pitched the idea of Softail-based Guerilla, his client gave his blessing right away.…

Custom Bikes of the Week: 14 April, 2019

14.04.2019

We’ve got all shapes and sizes this this week—starting with a slick Triumph Bonneville kit, and finishing off with the cutest electric cafe racer. Amd a Yamaha dirt bike, a Grom and a Suzuki SV90 wedged in between. It’s a weird week for sure. Triumph Bonneville Kit by Unikat If the impeccable fit and finish of Triumph’s Factory Customs raised your brows—but the prices slammed them back into an expression of disgust—we may have a solution. Wrocław, Poland based Unikat Motorworks have developed a bolt-on cafe racer kit for both the T100 and T120 Bonnies. And it’s damn sweet. Working closely with Triumph Poland, Grzegorz Korczak and his crew wanted to develop a limited run kit (only 11 will be built), that would create a classic cafe racer with modern performance and reliability.…

Birdcage: Revival Cycle’s Titanium-Caged BMW Boxer

13.04.2019

BMW Motorrad have something big in the works. All they’ve shown us so far is a boxer engine and a drivetrain…but they’ve teased these in the most spectacular fashion. First, they commissioned a build from Custom Works Zon for the Mooneyes show in Yokohama. Now it’s the turn of the highly talented team at Revival Cycles in Austin, Texas. They’ve answered with what is possibly their hottest machine to date: ‘Birdcage.’ Revival shop boss, Alan Stulberg, picks up the story: “BMW came to us months ago and presented us with an engine, gearbox and rear differential drive that was never before seen.” “They gave us very few details, but it’s obvious they have big plans for the iconic opposed twin engine.…

A new age of customizing: Fuller Moto’s Majestic ‘2029’

12.04.2019

One of the most genre-smashing motorcycles of all time is the 1929 Majestic. It looked like nothing else on earth—a streamlined Art Deco torpedo, with hub-centered steering and sliding pillar suspension. Ninety years later, the French masterpiece is still casting its spell over custom builders. Bryan Fuller has just fallen under the influence, and created an extraordinary homage called 2029. The build is Fuller’s response to the unprecedented levels of change the moto industry is experiencing right now. “At its core, the art of motorcycle building is still very similar to its origins,” he notes. “The difference now is the role technology plays in the evolution of the craft, and in the innovation of design.” Quite simply, 2029 is a bold move to prepare us for a future where anything is possible for a new age of customs.…

Shakedown 1979: Hookie’s super-practical BMW R100

10.04.2019

The battle between form and function rages on a daily basis in the custom scene. As much as we hate to admit it, some customs are destined to spend their lives on display, or seldom ridden. But for every show pony, there’s a workhorse out there. Like this thoroughly practical—yet still handsome—classic BMW boxer from Hookie Co. ‘Racoon’ is based on a 1979 BMW R100/7, and was built with reliability and day-to-day performance topping the brief. “Nothing special,” says shop boss, Nico. “No engine over-tuning, no wrapped pipes—just a bike that fits perfectly into our ‘Enjoy the Good’ codex.” On the surface it’s a simple, well-packed scrambler in Hookie’s typically minimalist style. But the Dresden shop went to town to bring this airhead up to spec.…
