Dunstall Drainpipe: A rare Norton resurfaces in the USA

Modern race bikes are shiny, perfect things: they have the air of being extruded from 3D printers in a hermetically sealed laboratory. But in days of yore, the typical racer was usually a little battered and bruised, with unique welding marks and bodged-up brackets and bodywork. We have to admit to preferring them that way, and this Dunstall ‘Drainpipe’ Norton is the perfect example. It’s no Italian supermodel, but it’s still very compelling to look at. In the 1960s and 1970s, Paul Dunstall…

Exklusiv! The first custom based on the factory BMW R18

Before the BMW R18 officially broke cover, the Bavarian marque teased us with concepts and customs that showcased the whopping 1,802 cc power plant. The monstrous boxer is now almost ready to hit showrooms, so we're getting a look at the first custom based on the final production R18. And not surprisingly, it's a dragster. BMW Motorrad commissioned the build from California-based Roland Sands Design. The two companies go way back, and RSD are responsible for a number of parts in the R18's…

Lightning & Thunder: An FTR flat tracker from Sweden

The flat track bug seems to have permeated all corners of the motorcycling world—including Sweden. We love this very sharp Indian FTR 1200, which comes from Blixt & Dunder, a parts and lifestyle shop in Malmö. Friends Jonathan Falkman and Mattias Malmgren opened the shop two years ago in Sweden’s third-biggest city. Their shelves are stocked with everything from custom components to clothing, plus a healthy selection of racing essentials. Racing is in Jonathan’s blood and his FTR 1200 is a…

Double H: Herb Becker’s supercharged Norton drag bike

History has a strange habit of repeating itself. Exactly ten years ago, give or take a few days, we featured a twin-engined Norton called ‘Double Trouble.’ And now we have an even more incredible Norton, following the same format, called ‘Double H.’ It looks vintage but it’s a recent build, and uses mostly Commando rather than Atlas engine parts. It’s also supercharged, because nothing succeeds like excess. ‘Double H’ is the work of Herb Becker, a Norton racebike guru who lives in Ontario…

Czech Mate: A Minarelli 50 GP with a curious past

Nothing arouses curiosity quite like a rare racing machine. Bonus points if it's so vintage and obscure, you need to turn to specialist internet forums to pinpoint its origins. Which is exactly what Cole Mahlowitz, the owner of this beautifully restored 1970s 50 cc Grand Prix racer, had to do. When Mahlowitz bought the bike, it was listed as a 1975-model 'Czech' Minarelli 50 GP—a 50 cc two-stroke racer with a six-speed box, and a claimed output of 16 hp at 14,500 rpm. But when the bike…

Taste of Tsukuba: A classic Suzuki GS1200SS race bike

If you like to play Gran Turismo or Forza Motorsport, you’ll know the Tsukuba circuit. It’s hugely popular with the street tuner guys, who use it for ‘time attack’ sprints—and it’s also home to some of Japan’s biggest motorcycle races, second only to the Suzuka 8 Hours. In May and November every year, the circuit hosts the famous ‘Taste of Tsukuba’ races. These are open to classic race bikes, and the array of the machinery lined up on the grid is mouthwatering. And when racing restarts in…

Ice Blue Racer: A Fantic Caballero destined for flat tracks

If you live outside Europe, one of the most interesting bikes you can’t buy is the Fantic Caballero Flat Track 500. The Italian manufacturer has been in business since the late 60s, and is best known as a maker of enduros and motards—but its most interesting creations are the ‘Caballero’ machines. ‘Caballero’ is a sub-brand, using the same approach as Ducati did with its Scrambler. The range taps into a similar ethos as well, with ‘Rally’ and ‘Scrambler’ models as well as the ‘Flat…

Flat Out: Jillian Deschenes' Royal Enfield flat tracker

Minnesota native Jillian Deschenes is not a pro custom motorcycle builder: from Monday to Friday, she's a hospice nurse in the suburbs of Minneapolis. But on the weekends she's a flat track racer—and a fierce one, too. In just her second year of racing, Jillian's already the number one plate holder in the women's class in her AMA District. Her success piqued the interest of Royal Enfield, who invited her to test out their Himalayan-based flat tracker—the FT411. Jillian’s affable nature left…

A KTM 450 flat tracker built for a Dakar Rally racer

If you’re a custom builder, one of the most difficult briefs is for a race bike. No matter the genre or discipline of the project, the purpose-built, stripped-down nature of race machinery leaves minimal room for aesthetic creativity. After all, these bikes are not built to look pretty. They’re built to run a distance in the quickest time possible. So form takes a backseat to function, and each component needs finely tuned design. When Pierre Dhers of Freeride Motos Racing was offered a…
