It was a cold winter day when BikeBrewers took the trip to pay a visit to the digs of UNIKAT Motorworks. It had been a visit which was long overdue.
We have been writing about Grzegorz Korczak and his team of highly skilled professionals for many years and each time he has managed to surprise us with incredible gems that rolled out of their workshop. It was a long ride to get there from the, but fortunately there was no heavy snow in Poland at the time, which made for a long but comfortable ride. Grzegroz was already waiting for us with a nice cup of coffee and local pastries, but we were in for a bigger treat.
So what do you do when you want your vintage 1969 Honda CL350 turned into a caferacer? You stuff the bike in the back of your VW Golf, throw in a couple trash bag full of parts, and drive the 90 miles or so from Seattle up north to Moto Design Garage in Bellingam, WA...

If you are ready for a fika, join RGNT Motorcycles in Årsunda (Sweden) next weekend 24-25th February, where they are looking to set a new electric motorcycle speed record on ice!
What is a fika you might ask? Well, it is a Swedish custom where you take a break from your activities to drink coffee, eat cake, and relax with others. So, we’ve been invited to join the fika, but what’s going on over there in Sweden?
Mooyong Zeus is the founder, owner, designer, builder and all-round nice guy of Zeus Customs in Bangkok, Thailand. I last met Mooyong during my visit before Covid – so I was mighty curious how he is doing now that the pandemic-storm has subsided a bit.
They say it’s the largest fair for custom bikes in Europe, and after visiting the Custom bike-show in Bad Salzuflen the first weekend of December, I’d say they are right! As you can expect from our German friends it is well organized, from parking to lay out of the halls to […]
A Special Story It is common for us to write about a motorcycle with a special story, and in a way, they are all very personal. Still, this might be the most special motorcycle we have covered to date. This is a story about a man that does not compromise. Controversial […]
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 […]
We have previously featured bikes called the Dominator, the Starship Meteor, the Mutant, and the Alchemist. Seasoned readers and followers may recognise these names and ‘Cloud 9’ does not sound too far fetched to follow. Indeed, Arjan van den Boom is behind this revolutionary design for a 2019 BMW R9T. This […]
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 […]
Blackout Custom Design Somewhere in the small town of Karvina in the Czech Republic, that’s in Central Europe, is a garage which was found only a few years ago. It’s called ‘Blackout Custom Design’ and it is run by a man named Marcel Galuszka. We would like you to remember that […]
We’ve seen builds from the Poland-based crew of Unikat. They have their own style, making them instantly recognizable from afar. In the past couple of years Unikat has built quite a reputation for themselves, especially with their unique 1-of-1 project that usual revolve around Triumph motorcycles. This time Grzegorz Korczak, the […]
