Will You Rethink What You Thought About The Ural Sidecar?

I rode one Ural sidecar a couple of years ago. My impression was: loud, shaking more than quite a bit, requiring effort to activate the rear drum brakes, uncomfortable position and seating and getting scary when reaching 70 mph… Still, many liked it the way it was. Are they bikers passionate about military history or […]

Youngsters Prefer Under 1000 CC Retro Styled Custom Motorcycles

Are urban motorcycles, factory or custom, with a number of cc’s under 1000 the new rage among youngsters, both male and female?

Johammer Electric Motorcycle. Going Green In Pastel Colors.

I felt the urge to publish the Johammer Electric Motorcycle because of its very unusual aesthetics and setup, more than for its performance somewhat in the range of many of e-competitors. It may appear weird to many – looking like (irony?) a snail on wheels – or visually appealing to those with an open mind […]

On May 1st 2014 Indian Motorcycle Will Have Again A Dealership In Sturgis.

Bruce Eide, who is already selling Indian motorcycles in Sioux Falls, is about to open an Indian dealership downtown Sturgis at 2106 Lazelle Street.

Paul Junior Building Cystom Motorcycles In A New Web Series

I am pretty certain that you wonder what Paul Junior Teutul is up to… Right? He has been building motorcycles for World of Warcraft, the famous game launched in 2004. More precisely 2 custom bikes inspired by the 2 game warring faction, the “Horde” and the “Alliance.” The building will be documented in several episodes […]

La Chica Bonita

Maybe one day I will launch a discussion on the reason(s) why so many builders of custom motorcycles and cars name their creations with Spanish names. “”La chica es bonita” means “The girl is pretty” and nobody knows if builder Fabian Muller is talking about “her”, his bike, or “her” at his side on the […]

Sportster Superlow 1200T. The New Very Light Tourer From Harley-Davidson

Until now you had to customize one of the Sportsters of the line-up to make it a light tourer. And many did, buying aftermarket accessories…No surprisingly, when Harley asked their Sportster riders and also dealers what they wanted, the request many formulated was loud and clear. Give us a factory equipped touring version. The Sportster […]

Harley-Davidson Powered Toyota Prius.

I didn’t publish this feature on April’s fool day, so, I guarantee that this one-of-a-kind Harley—Davidson powered Toyota Prius really exists. Proof? It’s for sale on eBay (best offer at time of publication was $1375) although it’s no more running because of a massive breakdown… I understand that some don’t like hybrid electric cars. But […]

B-Rocket Concept Motorcycle.

A corporation commissioning a custom motorcycle is always doing it for marketing purpose. And the result can only be a theme bike whose main staging area is almost never the road, but the print and digital pages of magazines, the headquarter lobby of said corporation and the display floor of a few dealer shows. From […]
