Samuel Guertin used to spend his days wrenching on choppers—the kind that fly. But after a decade working as a helicopter mechanic, he decided that customizing cars and bikes was more fulfilling.

The Ducati Monster is a motorcycle we’ve seen customised six ways from Sunday, so whenever we find one that looks genuinely unique, it always grabs our interest.

The mighty V-Max is thirty years old this year. And it’s still making the news—for both the right and the wrong reasons.
Its creator, Kenji Ekuan of GK Design, died a few days ago.

Sacha Lakic Design is an international design and architecture studio based in Luxembourg.
This 1982 CX500 was laying in a corner of George's Garage, the shop of a friend. So they decided to rebuild together this bike in a cafe racer version...

One of South Africa’s motorcycling hotspots is the Woodstock Man Cave, a workshop-cum-clubhouse in Cape Town. It’s also the venue for a bike show that’s popular with local customizers.

What a renaissance the good ol’ BMW K-Series is having of late. From humble beginnings as the laughing-stock of the second-hand bike scene, the model has enjoyed a slow and steady rise in popularity over the past few years.

An excellent paintwork, inverted forks, new shocks, clip-ons, spoke wheels, conical muffler... And a lot of good taste.
You don't need much more to make an oustanding cafe racer out from an old good Kawa Zephyr 550.

As someone once said, nostalgia ain’t what it used to be. Sometimes those rose tinted spectacles can play tricks on us, deleting the bad, embellishing the good, even transposing events or people that weren’t actually there.

Back in 2008, the Harley XR 1200 had everything going for it. Launched in Europe but styled with an American flat track vibe, it was a nod to the much-loved XR750.

Hurricanes. Typhoons. Comets. Tempests. If you need any more evidence that the world’s weather is going to hell in a carbon-based handbasket, look no further than poor old Blighty and her Old Empire Motorcycles.

Not many people will be able to recognize a Yamaha GX400SP under the lovely racing fairing of this bike built by Koichi Fujita of An-Bu in Nagoya - Japan... Non saranno in molti quelli che riconosceranno una Yamaha GX400SP sotto la splendida...

The BMW R65 was introduced in 1978 to provide a mid-sized touring motorcycle for the BMW faithful, it utilised the bullet-proof airhead engine with a capacity of 649.6cc and it sent 45hp to the rear wheel via a maintenance free shaft-drive.

After just having the pleasure of pretending to own an R Nine T for the past few days (keep an eye out for my review in issue 6 of Tank Moto magazine) I've become rather fond of BMW's 110hp boxer.

People always say that the Americans don’t get irony, but anyone who thinks Ugly Motorbikes don’t build beautiful bikes clearly has no soul – which means irony is alive & kicking in Southern California.

Before we indulge in the details of the distractingly beautiful and purposeful black Ducati that originally lured you to read these words it is right and proper that we extend the gentlemen behind the bike a hearty Bikeshed welcome and a thorough...

Honda's Moto Guzzi-esque CX500 has been enjoying a huge resurgence in the custom scene. It seems that ever since the Wrenchmonkees unveiled their custom CX500 in 2011 the CX's popularity has skyrocketed.

The Honda CX500 is not the prettiest of motorcycles. Launched in 1978 and produced for just five years, it attracted a wide range of uncomplimentary nicknames.

When you build GT40’s that are the only replicas licensed to officially carry the full Gulf Oil livery it’s clear you can build a serious automobile.
