Staff Blog: Yard Built, Yamaha Blessed

Steve Hunt, 22 November 2013 10:40

After years of bubbling just below the surface, the 'café-racer scene', this once underground segment of the custom-bike world now finds itself cresting the mainstream wave; shows on Discovery Turbo, the celebrated launch of bikes such as BMW's recent NineT and the resurgence of old, classic brands as trendy fashion labels (see the recently launched, Kate Moss-fronted Matchless clothing line; ...

Video: New Victory Judge turned into cafe racer

MCN, 08 February 2012 11:22

Victory Motorcycles isn't a firm you normally associate with cafe racers, but all that could be about to change thanks to Zach Ness, grandson of customising demi-god Arlen Ness. 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 ...

Ped Baker, 22 June 2011 15:16

The Speed Shop Design Beezerker has been around for a while (best in show 2010 LA Calendar Long Beach, 2nd place AMD champ metric), but so far only the privileged few have heard it run. In case you're wondering where the glorious racket is coming from, the exhaust routes through the frame. Never has an A65 twin sounded so sweet…

The amazing Hayabusa dirt trike

Dan Aspel, 03 June 2011 15:54

How do you go faster when you’re off-roading? Just add more BHP, right? This twisted logic is the basis for one of the oddest custom builds to surface on the internet yet: a GSX1300R Hayabusa dirt trike.

The Ninja with NOS. And speakers.

MCN, 27 May 2011 17:37

Ped Baker, 21 April 2011 16:01

As you've probably guessed by the 'Green Machine' three wheeler, Florida based Parker Brothers Choppers aren't your usual brand of southern state bike builders. Self confessed movie nuts Shanon and Marc have carved a niche within the chopper niche by building replicas of 'movie star' bikes and machines to showcase their passion and technical prowess.
