‘79 Kawasaki KZ650 – Alex Veaone

Estonia. No, we didn’t know where it was either. As luck has it, the country is essentially Finland’s southern cousin which should help you figure out how the hell you’d ride there if the mood ever took you.

Stealthy: Renard’s custom Harley 1200

Unless you’ve been living under a lump of naturally occurring solid aggregate, you’ll know that scramblers are all the rage right now. And by ‘scramblers’ we loosely mean bikes with a go-anywhere attitude, upright ergonomics and retro-cool looks.

That ’70s Show: new Bonneville, vintage style

Most builders rhapsodize about their bikes, scattering superlatives like autumn leaves on a country road. Kev Taggart describes his Triumph Bonneville T100 as “Small, squat, and tough as old boots.”
Kev can afford to be blunt.

Back To The Future: custom Honda Nighthawk

Some custom shops like to breathe new life into old motorcycles. Others put a vintage spin on modern machinery.
Tito and Jose of Spain’s Macco Motors have gone for the vintage approach with this CB750, and it works a treat.

Le French Atelier Suzuki GSX-R 750

Suzuki's GSX-R has been tearing up race tracks and suburban streets since the mid-eighties. It was the first motorcycle to be considered a "racebike that could be ridden on the road" and was the first bike to use an aluminium box frame construction.

The Harley-Davidson RR350 is the enlarged version of the RR250, a motorcycle built from the ground up by the Italians that was essentially a Harley-Davidson in name only (Harley took a majority stake in the Italian manufacturer in 1974).

Caiman Urban ‘n Dirt CB750

Walter Stander is quick to point out that when it comes to building bikes in South Africa, it’s very much a case of ‘swings and roundabouts’. Riding them, no problem, the beautiful roads and diverse scenery offer all you could devour.

At first glance this is a café racer based on a BMW boxer obviously built by a talented team.

Momoto SR500: blueprint for a budget cafe

Half a century ago, a café racer was a bike stripped to the essentials. Tuned for maximum performance over the short haul, it was usually a secondhand bike that didn’t break the bank—and was tweaked on a budget.

Moriwaki’s 40th Anniversary Honda CB1100

Think of Moriwaki, and you probably think of snarling racebikes tearing around Suzuka in the 70s and 80s. Invariably piloted by hairy-chested legends like Graeme Crosby (above) and Wayne Gardner.

America has lots of things we don’t have here in the UK. Deserts for sledding in, canyons for carving, sun for soaking up and a man called Max Hazan.

Honda CB360 by Purebreed Cycles

Source: silodrome.com
The Honda CB360 is a motorcycle that I’d probably recommend above all others as a first bike – it’s light, nimble, reliable and it does a valiant job of keeping up with the big boys when you want to take it out canyon carving (after you’ve taken an...

Maidstone H-D Cafe Racer

Maidstone Harley-Davidson is a proper, grown up dealership with the usual expansive showroom packed with Milwaukee muscle, a full-on clothing emporium and a parts department large enough to keep the average customer happy for years.

Little Baby: Cafe Racer Dreams’ SR125

Let’s be honest: most of the bikes that make waves on the custom scene are big-budget builds. They cost as much as a new motorcycle driven off a showroom floor.
And that’s fine, because that’s the price of personalization in a commoditized world.
