  • Chris Hunter Racing Motorcycles ,,

    If there’s a growing trend in custom motorcycles today, it’s towards street trackers: road-legal versions of the flat track bikes that raced in the 1960s and 1970s. With small tanks, wide bars and fat tires, they’re good-looking bikes stripped down to the essentials. Machines like… Read more »

    Fred and Hugo of Blitz Motorcycles describe their latest creation as “A gentleman’s bike for a gentleman rider”.

    Scott Colosimo runs Cleveland CycleWerks, a company making cool, affordable custom-style bikes that cost as little as $3195. This bike isn’t on a CCW dealer floor though: it’s Scott’s personal ride, a 1954 BSA M21 that he built himself. Scott wanted a hardtail, cut down… Read more »

    There’s nothing radical or flashy about this early 70s BSA, but it has a low-key charm that I find very compelling. The beautiful photography helps, of course. It’s by the owner of the bike, Adam Green, taken in his hometown of Margate City, New Jersey… Read more »

  • Chris Hunter Custom Motorcycles ,,

    This is one of those motorcycles where information is frustratingly scant. I think it’s based on a post-War Triumph, maybe a TR5 Trophy with the 498cc OHV four-stroke twin. (It has an Amal 276 carb.) [See comments. —Ed.] The bike was built by an underground… Read more »

    Here’s a classic example of a very tasteful ‘resto-mod’, and one that shows off the lines of the BSA A10 beautifully. The iconic A10 first appeared as the 1949 Golden Flash, but by the mid 50s, the range needed an overhaul. BSAs were being seen… Read more »
