My chequered Kawasaki

Here's my ZX-6R G2, which I resprayed with a chequered design. I'm now starting to modify the performance. So far I've added a quickshifter, K+N filter, NGK plugs and an A16 exhaust. I've got loads to do - it's a work in progress.

Is this the ultimate Honda CBX1000?

A “breakthrough for the Japanese motorcycle industry” was one headline when Honda’s stunning six cylinder CBX was first announced in 1977 and the first photographs which appeared in MCN that year certainly left a lasting impression on one West Country teenager. Thirty five years on Paul Pursey now owns seven of the iconic sixes including this, which features an 1170cc ...

This is the latest example of the increasing number of immaculate cafe racers coming out of America. Called the Honduki, it's an award winning build based on a 1975 Suzuki GT550 but, as you can see, it looks nothing like the pudgy streetbike Japan intended it to be. It's made by Motohanger, a burgeoning custom bike shop specialising in cafe ...

The bike you see below is the NessCafe. Designed and built by Zach Ness and publicly displayed for the first time at last month's New York motorcycle show, it's based on ...

Made in Britain. Chopped in Japan

Custom British choppers and bobbers were the main feature at the Mooneyes Show in Yokohama, the world's most prestigious custom bike show of 2011, and it was a fitting tribute to the halcyon days of British motorcycle engineering.
