Bikes of the Month March 2017

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 in a bit early and a lot of riders have removed the dust of their bikes with the first happy miles. But let’s take a look back a what March 2017 offered us.

Moto Guzzi Griso Tracker

Moto Guzzi Griso Tracker

One of the finalists in Moto Guzzi’s custom motorcycle battle “Lord of the Bikes”, based on a Moto Guzzi Griso. A real flat tracker that actually is build for racing and not only build for show and shine. And if you take a look at the rather bulky, but powerful Griso, you know that this was not an easy task. The bike lost over 50kg of weight to a respectable 170kg. With 110 horses on the rear wheel and no front brake…[read more]

BMW R65 Scrambler by Ironwood

BMW R65 Ironwood

Incredible cool and radical looking BMW R65 Scrambler built by our close friends of Ironwood Custom Motorcycles. With this build they show what they are capable of and it went completely viral on Facebook and Instagram. With this machine, they even got a honorable mention on BikeEXIF. [read more]

Honda CR500 Tracker

Honda CR500 Tracker

“Not for kids or pussies”,  that’s what a seller of his Honda CR500 once stated in his Craigslist ad. It’s clear that the 53hp of the single cylinder 2-stroke powerhouse is not made for everybody. Adam Hedges of C’s Garage and the Earnest company has built race cars the past 10 years but always had a strong love for 2-stroke motorcycles, with Honda’s CR500 as the ultimate bike. So he decided to build his own flat tracker based on this monster. [read more]

Moto Guzzi 950 by Stile Itialino

Moto Guzzi 950

As a Guzzi rider I may have a slight preference for custom bikes based on the Italian brand. And if you know a little about the brand, you may know that the 850cc T3 is a beloved machine, especially in its original state. But that was no reason for the guys from Stile Itialiano to customize it. Inspired by the legendary Honda CR750 racer, their “CR950” hits a sweet spot. [read more]

Yamaha XS650 Tracker by H-Garage

Yamaha XS650 Tracker

Cool Yamaha XS650 Tracker built by H-Garage. A project that went from “I only need to freshen the bike up”, to “a complete custom motorcycle project”. According to Scott Halbleib, owner of H-Garage, there is no such thing as a budget build and he convinced the owner of the XS to go for a full build-out of this machine. Finished with the recognizable Gulf color scheme that actually worked out pretty well for this bike. [read more]

And this awesome Suzuki SV65o Scrambler…
