    Art in progress This very well known Dutch Master of Customizing has waved his magic wand over this bike and turned it into a pure piece of art. BikeBrewers were offered the opportunity to tame this wild stallion and after seeing pictures of it online, we did not have to think […]

    Usually, I don’t like to just repost bikes from other websites. But with projects from a friend, it’s different. And the complete bike you see here is totally different. Regular readers already know the story and work of Arjan van den Boom, owner of Ironwood Custom Motorcycles and I’ve featured a […]

    Regular readers already know the cool boy story of Ironwood Custom Motorcycles (if not, read more here). In short: owner Arjan van den Boom turned his hobby into a serious business. But if you build bikes for a living and have to maintain a couple of social media accounts with some […]

    When I started BikeBrewers.com in the summer of 2015, one of the first posts was about the awesome CX500 Café Racer by Sacha Lakic. I always see this bike as the last piece that made me start blogging about custom motorcycles. A bike that also made the “poor men’s Guzzi” extremely popular […]

    BikeBrewers scoop ‘maiden ride’ The Tamarit team from Spain have their very own view on custom building. In a relatively short period of time the Alicante based workshop have managed to carve out a very special niche in the world of customization. Their 81st build is yet again proof of their […]

    “Shoe, the whole shoe and nothing but the shoe” We don’t want to spam our fans with too many “independent” product reviews, there are enough of them out there already. We get many requests from manufacturers, but we are very picky. We simply don’t like to write a positive review on […]

    As proud “Dutchmen” it’s always cool to publish a cool story and pictures of a bike that comes from our home ground. 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 […]

    We’re always proud of our ever-growing Dutch custom motorcycle scene. I think Arjan van den Boom with Ironwood Customs is one of the fastest growing shops with worldwide recognition. But we also have another great shop: Nozem Amsterdam. We haven’t heard from them in a while, but if you take a […]

    Yes! You’re right! Better late than never! This is the list of the 21 best custom motorcycles of 2017! Last year we did a voting based on the stats of popular bikes that year but this time we kept things much simpler. So no hard data, voting system, social statistics, or fancy […]

    With the ever growing scene of custom motorcycles, I’m proud of everything that’s “Made in Holland”. I keep in close contact with all builders like Arjan from Ironwood Customs, Wido of Wimoto, Daan of Moto Adonis and of course the Wrench Kings. Last weekend I’ve paid a visit to the last one. […]

    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 […]

    While some may have a 12 month motorcycle season, here in Holland we’re glad if we can ride 6 or 7 months a year. Of course, there are some hardcore purists who ride all year, but unless you have a Husqvarna with ski’s, I wouldn’t recommend it. But the spring kicked […]
