Roland Sands Design and BMW Motorrad

Bike manufacturers and customizers rarely work together, but if they would, we’d see more awesomeness like the Concept 90.

BMW Motorrad designers Ola Stenegärd and Sylvain Berneron teamed up with Roland Sands Design to create an homage to the R 90 S, and the result is one of the cleanest, most comprehensive builds of the year. Sands took design cues from the classic Morris design and cranked it up to 11, creating custom body work to form around the air-cooled boxer engine, and keeping the polished metal to a minimum to make the black and orange theme sing. Of all the bikes in this group, this is the one we’d ride home. And to the coast. And across the country.

El Solitario MC – Spain

Few shops are making waves in the custom bicycle world like El Solitario MC. The carport in Spain is going up by David Borras, and his stylish is the absolute opposite of the stripped down, moderate bistro racers that are extremely popular.

In view of a 1993 Ducati 900ss, the Petardo could play close by Mel Gibson in a Mad Max change. Everything is uncovered and unmistakably tough, with a heap of race gages on the tank flanked by catches and switches, and a couple of gigantic headlights to get through the clean. “We were so tired of the endless run of web traditions with a similar pressing board-like seat, fake Bates fog light and Wi-Fi electrics,” says Borras. “We simply expected to do the opposite and ridicule it.” Contrarians join together!

Indra Pratama – Indonesia

We take it back. This is the one we need. It’s known as the Thrive T003 Káku, and underneath that science fiction bodywork is a passerby Yamaha Scorpion 225 that has been carefully tweaked by Indonesian tuner Indra Pratama.

In the event that a Japanese superhero required a two-wheeled sidekick in a post-prophetically catastrophic damnation scape, the Káku is it, with hand-manufactured bodywork covered in a husky matte paint. You won’t discover another Yamaha 225 like it, which makes the way that it’s Pratama’s first form significantly more noteworthy.

Mule Motorcycles – California

It’s known as the Web Surfer which is as it should be. The greater part of the parts originated from eBay and the seat is produced using a vintage surfboard. Normally, it originates from California.

Worked by Richard Pollock at Mule Motorcycles, the previous aviation metalwork pro is fixated on flawlessness, and the level of detail wrapped around the Buell 1200 engine and C&J mono-stun outline merits a moment – and third, and fourth – look.

Jarrod and Justin Del Prado – Arizona

F1 fans will perceive the Del Rey’s paint conspire promptly. It’s a Harley-based reverence to the 1971 constructors’ title charged by a vintage dashing fixated rider.

With a revamped 1995 Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 as its base, the siblings from DP Customs went to work extending the hard tail out four inches and boosting the v-twin’s motor with a gigantic admission and custom fumes. Simply watch your foot when you lay into the brake pedal.

Karles Vives – Spain

Most custom bicycles spend their lives in covered, aerated and cooled carports. For Karles Vives, that is unsatisfactory.

The Barcelona developer composes a 10-day, 1,250-mile voyage through Morocco intended for vintage enduro bicycles, and the R80S Trial is the embodiment of his “Scram” occasion. The 1984 BMW R80 ST experienced a five-month makeover, and would take a gander at home intersection a forsake in Africa or raging the Alps in Austria. As it ought to.

Yahama Europe and Wrenchmonkees – Denmark

The Danish plan stylish makes it to two wheels with a joint venture between Yahama’s European arm and the Copenhagen-based group at Wrenchmonkees.

It’s a major bruiser of an exclusively, in light of the 1,251cc XJR1300 retro rocket, yet with the forks supplanted with a set from the YZF-R1 to bring down the position, cut on bars to make them embrace the tank, and spoked wheels the differentiation pleasantly against the advanced suspension and six-cylinder brakes. To the extent huge bicycles go, this puts almost everything from Milwaukee to disgrace.


Image result for KAFFEEMASCHINE #8

Axel Budde – Germany

Bistro racers are getting to be as basic as Corollas, so it’s pleasant to see a crisp thought on an undeniably commoditized style.

Hamburg’s Axel Budde has been picking up reputation for his v-twin forms, and the Kaffeemaschine #8 is the refining of Budde’s reasoning of “basic” machines. In light of a 1980 Moto Guzzi Le Mans Mk II, the developer put the Guzzi on a genuine eating routine, uniquely manufactured all-aluminum bodywork, and only for good measure include traveler pegs and a cowhide covered back seat for riding two-up. It’s just too awful Moto Guzzi never figured out how to appropriately mount a v-twin.

Don Cronin and Michael O’Shea – Ireland

Craziness has a name and it’s known as the Rodine. Nobody in their correct personality would assemble a custom on Moto Guzzi’s FalconeNuovo – not a beautiful bicycle in any case – and exacerbated even with a level single with the get-up of an asthmatic rabbit.

In any case, that is precisely what Don Cronin and Michael O’Shea did, building the custom Guzzi in their shop in Cork, Ireland. What’s more, it was adequate to not just contend at the well known AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building in Essen, Germany. It won.



Deus Ex Machina – Los Angeles

It won’t not look like much at first look, but rather look nearer. The Elegant Mongrel is the style of bicycle that put Deus Ex Machina – the Australian bicycle aggregate with shops in California, Indonesia, and Milan – on the guide.

Worked by Jeremy Tagand in Deus’ Sydney workshop, the Kawasaki W650 has turned into a staple of the shop, mixing the best of British style with the unwavering quality of the Japanese parallel twin. It looks little, and that is on the grounds that it is, with a shorter swing-arm pulled from a Yamaha SR400 and a dainty tank coordinated with a negligible seat. Yet, the level of detail and moderate approach makes all the correct parts radiate through.
