Long before BMW gained popularity as the adventure motorcyclist weapon of choice, thanks to Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman’s escapades and their Long Way-series, BMW already had a reputation for building bullet-proof adventure bikes.
The Monkey and the Ape By now you should have a pretty good idea about who Rusty Stitches are and what they are all about. They are the David to the motorcycle riding gear industry’s Goliath. And they’ve been growing recently…fast! Although their mascot is a big hairy ape, the Rusty […]
Beautiful Monster When Ducati first launched the venerable Monster 900 back in 1993, it set the world on fire! I remember seeing it for the first time on a television program, and being blown away by the raw and ‘monstrous’ look the Bologna manufacturer managed to give to one of their […]
In 1969 when the Honda Motorcycle Company introduced to the world their CB 750, with its air-cooled, inline 4-cylinder 750cc engine, it literally blew away all the competition. Not only did they build the world’s first mass-produced superbike, but they also sold it at an affordable price point. It was called […]
Moto Adonis We have seen a couple of incredible builds from the workshop of Moto Adonis. The Dutch builders, which consists out of Arthur Renkema and Job Leussink, have been busy the last couple of years. Who remembers the menacing Harley Davidson LiveWire? Or the BMW RnineT Girder? Only a few […]
Moto Adonis This is a story about a motorcycle we saw some time ago when we last visited the workshop of Moto Adonis in the Netherlands.

‘Crazy for building MAD stuff’ The city of Roosendaal in the south of the Netherlands harbours a small outfit run by a big (1.96m) guy. I got to know Daan Borsje a couple of years ago when we were both sitting in a jury for a build off competition. Daan is […]

And with an ever-growing custom motorcycle scene, the established workshops keep on delivering top-notch work. Regular readers already know that we have some really great pro builders here like […]
Beautiful classic BMW K75 Cafe Racer by Moto Adonis. Personally, I’m very happy to see that the quality of builds from Holland is constantly growing. Maybe a bit biased, but I’ve featured a lot of bikes from our small country lately. We have some real great pro-builders like Ironwood, Wimoto, and […]
It’s always cool to see great build from your own country and with a constantly growing scene, there is a lot of cool stuff coming from Holland. This bike is from Moto Adonis and based on a ’79 BMW R100RS. This awesome BWM R100RS is not a typical café racer, scrambler […]
We’re gonna be honest, we are a sucker for lists. More specifically, end-of-the-year-top-5-motorcycle lists! It’s one of those things that we never can seem to get enough of. Whether you’re sitting with your friends or family, or on the workfloor with your colleagues, top 5 lists always add flavour to the […]
