It’s good to know that the retro looking Triumphs were not just built for their looks. In the search for the ultimate go anywhere bike, James Hammarhead has chosen the Scrambler as the bike that “has it all”.
I do love seeing this bike ridden hard through the amazing desert landscape.
Featuring the beautiful photography of Sam Christmas. He photographs various celebrities and the occasional cafe racer inspired image. Worth checking his website out.
A great gathering was organised last Sunday to bring together custom bikes and scooters in a massive ride ending up at Kustom Lane Gallery in Hawthorn. A few of the bikes there were featured in the Oil Stained Brain exhibition from the previous week but there were also plenty of other gorgeous two wheeled machines to enjoy. The people there were generally very inviting and willing to chat about their customised rides while others enjoyed the entertainment and sunshine.
I decided to edit these photos in black and white as it was like stepping into a different time in history as you entered the closed off lane; literally full of classic Nortons, Ducatis, BSAs and much much more. Check out the images below.
I would happily own any bike on this poster…

Bonneville Speed Week has just wrapped up and while the riders are busy brushing the salt off their tyres Geoff from Return of the Cafe Racers has been busy sourcing images from the various bike builders and racers. Bikes featured include works from Shinya Kamura, Low Brow Customs, MegaDeluxe and the Impossible Team. I’ve included a sample for your perusal but can see more at this link.
