Wiese Crack – ’76 CB550 Cafe racer

06.11.2019

Remember the first time you swung a leg over a bike? Mathias Wiese does. At the tender age of eight, his dad dinked him around town on the family CB550. There was something about that afternoon’s ride that stuck with him. That feeling, that smell, and that inline-four snarl gave the young Bavarian an itch that would take years to scratch. That love of four-pot screamers never left him, as evidenced by this, his glorious shed-built 1976 Honda CB550 cafe racer.

Riding Gear – AGV X70 Helmet

05.11.2019

If you’re looking for retro riding gear with genuine heritage you can’t go past AGV helmets. The Italian manufacturer has been making helmets since 1947. During the past 7 decades, they’ve fine-tuned their products on race tracks around the world. Today the company is owned by fellow Italian riding gear manufacturer Dainese. Like Dainese, the AGV brand loves to celebrate its history which resulted in the development of the open face AGV X70 helmet.

Fueling the Fire – Stoker Motorcycles ZX-6RR

04.11.2019

It’s hard to imagine that any good could come from breaking your neck. Things could have gone very differently when Antti Eloheimo’s doctor prescribed him no track time while his neck healed. But rather than sitting on the couch, binge-watching Netflix, Antti decided to turn his unfortunate situation into an opportunity. Laying in wait in his garage was a 2006 Kawasaki ZX-6RR race bike. So with a head full of ideas and enough enthusiasm to achieve them, he got to work building his very own ‘Fantasy Racer’.

Gear Review – GEAR’D ZX2-1116 Watch

03.11.2019

The Gear’d Hardware ZX2-116 Stealth watch is one tough timepiece. US-based watch manufacturer Gear’d Hardware is the brainchild of Kris Cram, a competitive bodybuilder, and self-confessed horsepower addict. Kris created Gear’d Hardware after being unable to find a watch that could handle the rigors of a rugged, active lifestyle. His company manufactures timepieces that offer masculine style and a proven ability to withstand serious punishment.

Nineties Revival – Tavossi Ducati 900 Supersport

01.11.2019

What was once old is new again. 1993 doesn’t seem all that long ago. It was the year Bill Clinton was president of the United States, Jurassic Park smashed box office records, Grunge Rock was at its peak, and I graduated from high-school. Put it into numbers though and it equates to 25 years. That’s quite a while for a motorcycle to have been on the road (and for me to have been out of school!). After two and a half decades of good times, Mirko Tovazzi’s 1993 Ducati 900 Supersport was beginning to show its age. Rather than taking the less ambitious route of a factory restoration he decided to add a few of his own 90’s inspired styling tweaks.

Royal Treatment – Kromworks Bullet 500

30.10.2019

For years it was the west who produced the best custom motorcycles. The greatest rides were done by cashed-up Europeans or well-heeled Americans. But in the last few years, there’s been a dramatic shift as the developing world has been the one to really watch when it comes to creativity. Take exhibit a) Indonesia’s Kromworks and their retro-futuristic Royal Enfield Bullet 500 cafe racer.

Riding Gear – Rev’It! Worker Overshirt

29.10.2019

Overshirts have become commonplace in motorcycle riding gear catalogs. They can’t promise the same level of protection as a full leather suit, but they offer a casual streetwear look without sacrificing your safety altogether. The REV’IT! Worker overshirt is the perfect example of what a good motorcycle overshirt should offer. Boasting a timeless look, quality materials and CE Level 1 protection you’ll feel right as rain on or off the bike when it’s covering your back.

Hellion Honda – Origin8or CB750 Brat

28.10.2019

The decision whether to customize a K series Honda CB750 or not is becoming a tough one to make. There was a time when the K was a hot favorite of backyard builders and custom motorcycle workshops. The K series bikes sold in huge numbers between ’69 and ’78 so there were plenty of affordable examples available. The bike also had serious street cred as the motorcycle that holds the title of the world’s first “superbike”. Unfortunately, times have changed. These days a decent Honda CB750K is hot property and as a result, they demand prices that put them out of reach. Solid, unmolested examples are becoming harder to come by so most potential buyers are looking for investment bikes to restore rather than customize.
