Honda CB250RS tracker

Honda CB250RS tracker | Custom Motorcycles | Scoop.it
Is this the perfect, low-cost urban street tracker? Honda’s CB250RS is one of the unsung heroes from the early 80s: it was brisk, maneuverable and light, weighing less than 130 kg.
Chris Witham's insight:

Just going through a few emailed links I'd sent myself for later and found this one, just shows what you can do with even a humble 250!

Free Spirits Triumph Motard

Free Spirits Triumph Motard | Custom Motorcycles | Scoop.it
Technical description of our Triumph Scrambler Motard presented at Glemseck 101.
Chris Witham's insight:

Lot of work gone into making all the parts and putting together this Triumph Scrambler by Free Spirits out of Italy. 


Looks like you can buy all the bits too, just downloaded their PDF catalogue which has them all listed and priced.


They showed it for the first time at Glemseck 101, an event in Germany I'd not heard about until recently (although I think I'd seen it mentioned on the LSL site a couple of days ago as well).


Just watched the video for it and I'm definitely going to try and make it for next year!


Here's the video: https://vimeo.com/channels/squarewheeled/81983801


Here's the link to the event site:

See you there next year!

1982 CB985F - origin8or custom motorcycles

1982 CB985F - origin8or custom motorcycles | Custom Motorcycles | Scoop.it

This bike was featured on BikeEXIF Monday July 8th 2013 and Megadeluxe July 10th.

Chris Witham's insight:

Clean lines and minimalist CB900 Honda, lovely job!


The only thing that looks a little odd is the rear of the tank. Could look better following the line of the seat base, although I guess you could argue it follows the line of the subframe supports ;-)

Yamaha SR400 Scrambler - Bratstyle, Japan

Yamaha SR400 Scrambler - Bratstyle, Japan | Custom Motorcycles | Scoop.it

Bratstyle, Japan.

Chris Witham's insight:

Found this on todays mooch around the web looking for inspiration and stuff! Great looking bike and there's quite a few more on their website to look at.


Interestingly I remember looking at their site a year ago, lots of great looking brat style bikes but these old school scramblers seem to be a new angle for them, and they race them too!


Mostly based on the Yamaha SR400 which we don't get over here, seems like there's a lot of them available to base a build on.Would be cool to ship a container load of them back here, probably work out good value for money!
