Bullet bobber on a budget

bloomonkey, 24 December 2012 16:06

I decided to customise my Royal Enfield Bullet 500 into a bobber style with a meagre budget of less than a grand. I did everything from the engine rebuild to the respray and artwork on the tank.

Suzuki GS750 cafe racer

jeroen klaassens, 16 November 2012 13:54

In july 2011 I purchased a 1977 Suzuki GS750. Since then I have transformed the bike into a cafe racer. The engine is stock (65,000km). I made my own exhaust, seat, brackets, did all the welding jobs, resprayed the frame (removed all the unnecessary parts), rebuilt the forks and the calipers. The battery sits where the centre stand was. I used imitation ...

My Yamaha YZR500 Norick Abe replica

Wolfgang Hromada, 09 November 2012 20:17

I am from Austria. I have built a replica of Norick Abe´s 1999 YZR500 based on a Yamaha RD500 engine. Modifications and one-off parts are a long list, it took me six years to complete the bike.  Some of the photos attached also show a similar bike of a friend of mine, this is Checa´s YZR500 based on a stock RZ500 chassis.

Aprilia RS250 Simoncelli tribute

andysxv550, 10 July 2012 15:08

It's not quite finished yet but here's what I've been working on for the past couple of months. It started out as a fairly scruffy Aprilia RS250 which I stripped, cleaned, serviced, MoT'd etc. I added the RS body work, pipes and carbon bits from Jap4performance, and then set about painting it. I don't have a workshop so all this was done in the back ...

Ducati GT1000ss special

mark mcclean, 04 July 2012 22:37

Ducati never made a big twin street scrambler in the 1970s like Triumph, BSA, Norton, etc so when the Sport Classic range came out I thought it would be a good place to start. My engineer friend Roger Banks made the tank from a Spanish 75cc trail bike, cutting it up and welding strips in to fit the frame. A ...

Unique Kawasaki Streetfighter, my first big bike.

Owen Byrom, 30 June 2012 15:56

In 2010 I was casually browsing eBay for a project 600 that I could use after I'd passed my test. I was looking for a bike I could use every single day and I believe I found that very bike when I stumbled on an 1992 Kawasaki ZZR600. I haggled and managed to get the bike for a very good price. As you can Imagine ...
