    KTM Tracker by Roland Sands

  • Chris Hunter Custom Motorcycles ,,

    I’m surprised we don’t see more KTMs on the custom scene. Maybe it’s because the Austrian bikes offer great performance straight out of the box, and a love-it-or-hate-it style that’s hard to tweak. Roland Sands is a fan of the brand, and also one of… Read more »

  • Flat tracker by Lorenzo Buratti

    Flat tracker by Lorenzo Buratti

  • Chris Hunter Racing Motorcycles ,,

    There’s something strangely appealing about flat tracker bikes. Maybe it’s the stripped-back look. Or the stubby proportions. Or the way the front ends always look so clean without a brake. There are a lot of good looking trackers out there, but this is the best… Read more »

  • Wesley Reyneke Custom Motorcycles ,,

    I was pretty excited when the Husqvarna Nuda 900R was released in 2012—and equally disappointed when it was discontinued, following Pierer Industrie AG’s acquisition of the Italian marque a year ago. The supermoto-esque naked featured a punched out, 898cc version of the Rotax twin-cylinder mill… Read more »

    KTM 690 Enduro R by Roland Sands

  • Chris Hunter Custom Motorcycles ,,

    I met a motojournalist the other day who reckoned the KTM 690 Enduro R is the best bike he’s ever tested. He liked it so much, he bought one for himself. The design of the Austrian machine is strong and distinctive, but for some, the… Read more »

    Brough Superior Pendine

  • Chris Hunter Classic Motorcycles ,,

    Pendine Sands is one of the most evocative names in the annals of British motorcycle history. In the 1920s the seven-mile (11 km) beach on the south coast of Wales hosted the Welsh TT races and no less than five successful land speed record attempts.… Read more »

    Florida-based Mace Livingston wrenches on airplanes, and bikes are his passion. Not the sleek, aerodynamic types, though. Mace likes the steampunk, Mad Max vibe.

    KTM Super Duke custom

  • Chris Hunter Custom Motorcycles ,,

    Most bikes that look outlandish are terrible to ride. But this one is almost certainly the opposite. It’s called SuperSpinne (‘Spinne’ being German for spider) and it’s based on the KTM Super Duke R. According to the builder, Mark Dugally, the bike is ‘a pissed… Read more »
