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.

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.

Ducati Hypermotard custom

Dan Aspel, 01 February 2011 12:01

From insurance write-off to back-road scratcher, this customised Hypermotard is proof of what a little dedication and imagination can produce. Bought for a pittance after a low-side crash deemed to costly to repair, owner Michael Vis had a new tank, sub-frame and exhaust fabricated. The big challenge was keeping the bike's lean, edgy look while making the most of suitable ...

Cobra USA's "Special Projects Division" have taken two Honda RS750s and decided to completely change their look.   The first has become a CL77 Scrambler 305 look-a-like, while the second is patterned after a 1980s flat-track bike. Cobra claim the transition was easy: "amazingly, there was no major surgery involved in turning the first bike from a 2010-model RS750 into a 1960s-style ...
