If you've been following Return of the Cafe Racers on Instagram or Facebook you'll have seen that I recently attended Kustomfest in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The show was awesome with 20,000+ people through the doors and an incredible collection of over 150 unique custom motorcycles on display. The custom scene in Indonesia is thriving and of all the builds on display that excited me the most, it was the small capacity bikes that really blew me away. Small bikes rule the streets of Indo so it's no wonder they put so much effort into their custom creations and one bike that seems to be a favourite base for customisation is the mighty Honda Cub.
The UK-based aftermarket specialists from Urban Truck are presenting their customization package for the Land Rover Defender range.
The attached images show the Ultimate Edition bringing a number of enhancements starting on the outside with KBX front grille, light surrounds, hood vents and privacy glass. It's offered with a wide variety of paint schemes as well as LED headlights with dual daytime running lights mounted in the front bumper. 18-inch alloy wheels from several manufacturers are available and come wrapped around in BF Goodrich 265/65/18 tires.
I hope that title got your attention, and I know what you're thinking. But before you ask, 'Who is this evil sexist prick and why is he talking about women that way?', let me askyou a question. When was the last time you ever heard anybody use the term 'male car enthusiast'? How ridiculous does that sound? You might be starting to catch onto my point here...
I have a dream that one day there will be no such thing as a female car enthusiast, or rather, the 'female enthusiast' label. It's probably unrealistic of me to dream of a time where males no longer dominate the automotive industry, but I still think the world would be a much cooler place if more girls liked cars. In my dream, the elusive 'car girl' is a thing of the past.
The 2014 Ural MIR is a limited edition model from the globally renowned Russian motorcycle manufacturer, it's been named MIR after the joint Russian-American space mission that kicked off 20 years ago - opening up an unprecedented (and continuing) two decades of cooperation between the two superpowers.
For the MIR special edition, Ural have added a fully functioning solar panel to the top of the sidecar - this panel can charge electrical accessories and also acts as a battery tender. The paint is called "orbital white" and it's finished off with a blue pearl clear - referencing the clouds and oceans as seen from the space station.
The sidecar has also been fitted with dual high-intensity LED lights and a custom tonneau cover that utilises reflective insulation - it can be used as a thermal blanket if you find yourself stuck overnight unexpectedly. An emergency repair wrench has been attached to the sidecar for maintenance on the road and the MIR comes as standard with rider and passenger windshields, a spare tire, a sidecar nose luggage rack, "M??" LE badging, and, on demand 2WD.
These cars have promised much and have delivered squat
