Build your own electric road racer

Dan Aspel, 01 July 2011 11:27

Mavizen, the organisers of the electric TT, have dramatically slashed the cost of buying an electric race bike, to less than £8000. There’s just one catch – you’ll have to build it yourself. This is no DIY home-build special though. The Mavizen LEO.X can only be bought as a complete package, which includes a five-day college course on electrical theory, ...

Honda CX500 StreetTracker

Dan Aspel, 13 May 2011 10:51

Proving that a home-made custom project doesn’t have to be glamorous to impress is this dolled-up CX500 'StreetTracker'. Builder Graham Braid of Street Tuff Customs describes the original CX500 as "one of the ugliest bikes you can find", but it didn’t put the former machinist and precision engineer off making it his first custom build. Braid told MCN: "The CX500 ...

Dan Aspel, 07 December 2010 10:01

This restored 1991 Honda CR500R has been repaired and customised to “better than new” condition.

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 ...

Harley-Davidson Panhead with a difference

Dan Aspel, 30 July 2010 14:14

This Harley-Davidson V-Twin “Panhead” boasts a mean-streets look and a host of unexpected mods. The bike has a 1951 FL motor, a 1939 EL transmission case, Pan gears and a 1949 wishbone frame, making it something of a time piece. The oddity is that it doesn’t have a battery, just an electric generator… giving it both a retro and sci-fi ...
