Dust Hustle was Ellaspede’s day on the dirt for anyone to roll out and ride whatever rig they could throw a leg over! Inspired by the famous ‘Dirt Quake’ event made popular by our friends at Sideburn Magazine, this is a flat track fun day open to all the weird, wonderful and woefully unsuitable motorcycles that could possibly be ridden on the dirt.

Looks like a rad day. Would have loved to hear the buzz of those engines though.

Lotus C-01

If there is one company that can create lustworthy vehicles it is Lotus. Their first foray into motorcycles is not different. It has a 200 HP V-Twin engine inside but I can also see this be translated into an electric bike design without much change; which suits it’s futuristic look. Often these concepts don’t see the light of day but Lotus is planning to release 100 units with a huge range of customisation. I can’t wait!

Honda GB400 SL – Kustom Kommune

I had the privilege of photographing this exquisite cafe racer belonging to Jimmy Goode of Kustom Kommune. Kustom Kommune is an independent community workshop located in Collingwood, Victoria, Australia. It is a dream project headed up by Jimmy and Geoff Baldwin (Return of the Cafe Racers blog). They are also responsible for putting on the Oil Stained Brain custom bike show. This Honda GB400 SL was certainly a highlight of that show. It has been massively customised by Raider Motorsport, bored out and makes the most beautiful noise when running. Final details were finished off by Jimmy and the gorgeous flake paintwork was supplied by Thom Armstrong from Rusty Kustoms Paint Department.

I photographed this bike on location at Kustom Kommune to show off it’s warm tones and because the bike totally matches the raw sprit of the space. Worth noting that Jimmy is now looking at selling this bike to continue funding for the community garage space. A worthy cause but it will be sad to see this bike go. You can read more about the build detals at ROCR blog and see more of my photography work here.

Fuel Magazine and Tank Moto

A huge reason I haven’t posted much before today is that I’ve been busy working on my photography business. One of the main highlights of this year was getting to photograph for two outstanding magazines, Fuel Magazine and Tank Moto. Both magazines feature huge write-ups and images of some stunning custom vehicles. My work has been generously displayed over many of these pages. It is also a privilige to have my work shown in the same publication as photographer Sam Christmas whose work I have a tremendous respect for. Please support these magazines as there are not many publications of this high quality, and personally knowing the people who help put these together I can tell you that they have a lot more amazing features coming.tankmoto1 tankmoto2Tank Moto, Issue 2
