Budweis Custom Indian Motorcycle Show, the only custom show fully dedicated to Indian Motorcycles, is gearing up for its third edition, with registrations open as of today! The place to be is České Budějovice – aka Budweis – in the Czech Republic, from June 13 to 16, 2024, and you can pre-register your bike at www.budweiscustom.show/#BCS24form.
Set in a great place, Tobacco Dock in the center of London, featuring more than 300 custom bikes from ‘Past, Present and Future’. An abundance of bikes, ranging from pre-war, to choppers, bobbers, caféracers, retro-bikes, but also enduros and quite a few electric bikes. Loads of fun from the Friday evening to the closure on Sunday afternoon; plenty to do, gawking at bikes sure, but also entertainment – live music, presentations, panel discussions plus food and drinks galore.
A Different Kind of Build The 30-year-old Maarten Bressers has amazed us before with some beautiful custom BMW motorcycles. Although his preference usually went to boxer twins, the man behind Moto Rebuild decided to take a walk on the wild side, and to venture into the world of BMW inline engine […]
There is a lot going on with the Kawasaki KZ from France. Owned by Sebastien Vernaison, a 39-year-old bike builder who works as a plumber during the day. In his spare time however, Sebastien creates real work of art. What he did to this KZ650SR from 1980 is nothing short of […]
Gentlemen, may we have your votes please? In 2021 the BikeBrewers team got invited by the Café Racer Club Bulgaria to act as judges for the 2nd edition of the Caféracerfest in Kyustendil – Bulgaria. We didn’t know what to expect, since this was the first time we were asked to […]
Populair request We have written about the venerable Yamaha XV a number of times in our recent posts and we can’t get enough of them. Not just because of the cool aesthetics the Japanese V-twins have, or the high desirability factor they possess. No ladies and gentlemen, we love the Yamaha […]
Humble beginnings There are BMW boxers, and then there are BMW boxers. The difference? Well, here goes. Ever since BMW introduced their famous boxer twin configuration back in the 1920’s, they kind of had a reputation of being a bit…dull. That was until they started kicking the competition’s butts in the […]
No introduction needed The venerable Yamaha XT600 doesn’t need any introduction as far as we’re concerned. We’ve covered a number of builds the past couple of years that involved a Yamaha XT in one way or another. We can definitely see a trend going on here, and we like it! Meet […]
Racing Heritage Moto Guzzi exists exactly 100 years this year, and that is a reason for celebration. We would like to pay a special tribute to modified Moto Guzzi’s here at BikeBrewers. A Guzzi is an interesting looking machine, and when you sit and ride on one, you’ll also notice that […]
We are starting a new item here at BikeBrewers, where we take a closer look at the people that build the motorcycles instead of focusing on 1 specific bike, we call it: Bike Builder Profile. And for the very first edition of Bike Builder Profile, we have a very special candidate […]
Mad Max meets The Walking Dead There is something really interesting about post-apocalyptic science fiction stories, both written and on TV. Trying to imagine how a distorted future would look like, has fueled many conversations. 40 years ago, it was Mad Max that started the rat bikes movement, and it appears […]
Unusual suspect The Yamaha XS400 is not a bike that is particularly popular or well-known with bikers. It was built and sold between 1978 and 1987, and was in fact preceded by the XS360. Severely overshadowed by its more successful siblings at that time, the XT500 and XS650, Yamaha did manage […]
