Tomfoolery – Custom Is Cool

Tomfoolery – Custom Is Cool

I've always been an admirer of customization but never a participant. A willing custom bike show attendee and armchair judge, but an owner of stock original bikes and equipment, like the '75 CB400F in my garage that, besides some patina, looks the way it did some 39 years ago. Truth is, besides...

Here we are with the third installment of 'Custom Parts for your Cafe Racer'. As with part 1 and part 2 of this series I've pulled together a collection of parts that stand out as some of the best looking and best made aftermarket bits on the market. Whether you're building a Cafe Racer or just... 

Moto Guzzi's California Custom is a no-frills, stripped-down version of the California's Touring version we tested a couple of months ago. This new Custom model uses the Guzzi's all-new 1380cc engine in a package with enhanced handling capabilities. The 90-degree V-Twin is purported to kick out...

Admit it: Riding dirtbikes on the street is fun. Problem is, it looks a bit awkward, like a dune buggy on asphalt. And there's that whole no-license-plate thing. One solution? Convert your moto-cross bike into a chic café-style road-racer, which is precisely what Darrell Schneider, a well-known... 

Honda is promoting its cool, new CB1000R in several different ways, but this one caught our eye. In connection with the Glemseck 101 just concluded in Germany, this custom beauty was created by Honda Racing UK to be ridden by none other than five-time 500cc GP champ Mick Doohan. Doohan used the... 

From the April 2005 issue of Cycle World. As the name suggests, this bike is an outcast, almost villainous. Riding it is like carrying a weapon, trigger at the right handgrip. Interested? Even if big-inch Harley power isn't your thing, the Ecosse Moto Heretic's enticing-yet-peculiar blend of...
