Kawasaki KZ650s don't come across our desks too often. So we were intrigued to see this one from Monsieur Willie Knoll at Paris' Clutch Custom Motorcycles.
Willie has an obsession with lines and details, and a knack for nipping and tucking a bike until everything sits just right. Equally impressive is his eye for finishes—Clutch bikes are delightfully grungy, but never looked slapped together.
El preparador alemán recuerda la figura del piloto de Fórmula 1 con esta Moto Guzzi Le Mans modificada con el casco del piloto como punto de partida.
2014 está siendo un año de mucho recuerdo a la figura de Ayrton Senna por aquello del 20º aniversario de su fallecimiento. El tres veces campeón del mundo de Fórmula 1 era también un gran aficionado a las motos y el preparador alemán Marcus Walz le ha querido dar su particular homenaje a través de esta preparación. Una Moto Guzzi Le Mans especialmente llamativa que toma como decoración el casco que lució toda su carrera el piloto brasileño...
X-Tomi has given 15 performance models a virtual base-spec treatment.
Maybe we will never see a base version of any supercar or sports vehicle in the world, but independent designer X-Tomi is giving us the chance to imagine what a McLaren 650S, a Ferrari LaFerrari or a Lamborghini Huracan would look like in entry-level edition.
There's no doubt about it, today's custom bike scene is a tough nut to crack. It takes seemingly endless amounts of creativity, hard work and time. And once you've heaped all that onto the altar of the biking gods, there's still no promise of success. You could spend the rest of your cold, greasy life toiling away in a dimly lit garage and never sell a single bike. And that's if you live in America. Now try rising to the top of the heap while living in a country that most people couldn't point to on a map. Sound tough? Not for Slovenia's Bla Šuštarši? and his ER Motorcycles team. How do they do it? We quizzed the man recently to find out more.
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.
