BMW R80/7 midlife crisis - a usable custom

James Keen, 10 November 2010 09:15

Adam Kay wanted a machine that could be ridden every day and look as cool as any custom - and his R80/7 midlife crisis embodies that perfectly. The donor bike is a BMW R80/7 with a 1978 engine and the frame and forks are from the '81 model. Here's how the project got started, in Adam's own words: "I needed help and I ...

Kawasaki GPz1100 bargain racer

Scott Redmond, 10 November 2010 09:00

In its day, the GPz1100B1 was the original superbike: big, black, phenomenally fast and, in 1981, Kawasaki’s flagship.  So you’d be mistaken for assuming this GPz-based sprint machine has set its owner back thousands – but you’d be wrong. Instead, owner Eric Frith has spent less than £1000 on the GPz through a mixture of craft and good fortune ending ...

Unofficial Ferrari trike powered by Hayabusa engine

Dan Aspel, 18 October 2010 13:56

This Ferrari F1-themed trike was originally a Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa. The mechanics are largely unchanged, the work being focussed on the red, decal-laquered frame and rear wheels, turning the standard supersports bike into a unique tribute to the Italian F1 team. The trike was built by Japanese custom guru Yokosuka Johnny, who counts a Honda 1800GL Goldwing amongst his previous ...

Dan Apsel, 04 October 2010 15:26

This Ducati Monster S4Rs has been given the Corse treatment by Motoblog reader "Patrick of Assisi".

MCN, 17 September 2010 16:34
