Palatina T15 Triumph Cafe Racer

04.12.2015

The world's biggest Triumph motorcycle focused event 'Tridays' celebrated it's tenth anniversary this year. Spanning 3 days the Austrian based event attracted thousands of visitors who travelled from throughout Europe and the rest of the world to profess their love for the British Marque. Along with an action packed schedule of events and activities each year an invited builder unveils a customised Triumph created especially for Tridays. This year however, to properly celebrate the milestone 10th anniversary, we saw the unveiling of two incredible machines, the Fuel Motorcycles 'Triten' (check it out here on The Bike Shed) and this, the Palatina Dream Bikes 'T15' Cafe Racer.

 

One Up Neo Vintage CB600

01.12.2015

Neo-vintage is the unusual term Taylor Henschell of One Up Moto Garage uses to refer to their custom creations. Along with fellow One Up builder Micah Welsh, the pair hand pick motorcycles from the late 90s through to the mid 2000s and apply their unique custom style to them. Browsing their portfolio reveals the likes of a 250cc Kawasaki Ninja and a Honda CB600F that have been transformed into retro styled customs. This bike is the latest custom to roll out of their shop, a Honda CB600 which mixes elements of Scrambler and Cafe Racer styling. We caught up with Taylor to talk about this bike, the One Up workshop and how his Neo-vintage style has evolved.

 

BikeBiz R nineT Sun Kist

28.11.2015

One of the biggest concerns for owners of new motorcycles wanting to customise their rides is warranty voidance. To tackle this many manufacturers now offer their own range of aftermarket parts which can be fit by dealers without affecting warranty terms. If you're wanting to swap out your mirrors or fit a new exhaust system then they'll usually have you covered, but if you're looking for something really unique you're going to be disappointed. In Sydney, Australia motorcycle retailer and aftermarket parts supplier BikeBiz have taken things a step further. Leveraging their in house team of builders they've put together a radical BMW R nineT custom that's ready to order and completely covered.

 

La Siete Triumph Bonneville

26.11.2015

With the unveiling of the 2016 Triumph Bonneville range there's inevitably going to be to be a price drop for second hand models. For those who were planning on selling soon that may not sound all that great, but if you're on the lookout for a good base for your next custom project that news should have you smiling. There's no denying the Bonneville has been one of the most heavily customised motorcycles in recent years and they've proven themselves to be an incredibly flexible base. We've seen everything from Bonneville based Bobbers to Scramblers and of course Cafe Racers and this latest submission from Concept Racer in Mexico City is the perfect example of how to transform a bog standard Bonneville into a jaw dropping custom.

 

Rizoma Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer

24.11.2015

In the world of aftermarket motorcycle parts there's a few manufacturers who stand out in the current custom scene as the cream of the crop. The design and quality of their parts is top notch and for a workshop or homebuilder who is looking for the ultimate accessories to compliment their custom creations, these are the brands they turn to. One such brand is Italian manufacturer Rizoma and their parts range offers some of the best looking indicators, mirrors and dress up parts around. At the EICMA show last weekend Rizoma unveiled a series of parts aimed at owners of the new Ducati Scrambler who want to transform their bike into a bonafide Cafe Racer.

High Octane BMW HPnineT

22.11.2015

Jeffry Sol's BMW R nineT has been somewhat of a social media sensation since it was unveiled at the Big Twin bike show in the Netherlands. Bike EXIF recently gave it a nod in their 'Custom Bikes of the Week' series and it had me yearning to find out more. Jeffry is a one man band operating his High Octane Speedshop business out of his home garage and his creations are nothing short of spectacular. By pure coincidence I received an email from a colleague expressing Jeff's interest in being interviewed about his bike and so I'm very happy to share with you the following story about Jeff and his radical BMW 'HPNineT'.

 

Baba Beruang Honda Cafe Racer

20.11.2015

After visiting Indonesia 3 times in the past 12 months I've really started to love the attitude of it's custom builders. Their can do approach is, in many ways, a product of the environment in which they operate and it means that there's some incredible talent evolving. They have a real thirst for developing their personal ability and collaborating with local craftsmen in order to learn new skills is common practice. Arxaperiment is one of the new kids on the custom motorcycle block in Yogyakarta, Java. Traditionally an advertising agency they found inspiration in the custom scene and decided to add custom bike building to their list of services. This Honda CB700 is their latest work and from where I'm sitting it looks like a sign of good things to come.

 

The Bullitt Triumph Bonneville Black

18.11.2015

Pat Flynn, founder of 'The Bullitt' blog has been in the bike blogging scene since way back in 2008. Along with being obsessed with writing about everything 2 wheels (and occasionally 4) he's an avid rider and backyard builder. His ongoing Bonneville Cafe Racer project has been a frequent topic on the Bullitt pages over the years and it's now finally finished...just in time for him to sell it and start another project. This is the way of the custom motorcycle builder and while I'm sure he's sad to see it go, there's already a new and exciting project looming on the horizon. I had the pleasure of hearing from Pat recently about his beloved Triumph Cafe Racer so what better way to see it off than with a personal recollection of how the Bullitt Bonneville came to be...

 

Leatherhead Honda CB650

16.11.2015

If there's one thing I've learnt about building custom motorcycles it's that things don't always go as planned. Not every bike can be transformed into any style and sometimes it's simply that your vision can't be applied to the bike you've chosen. That leaves you with two option, change your concept or start over with another bike. For Oscar Axhede a change in direction wasn't an option, so when he realised the CB750 he'd bought didn't meet his requirements it was time to cut his losses and start over. Thankfully a solution was found in the 750's little brother, the CB650 and his Honda Cafe Racer project was underway.
