Some rough cut footage from The Classic.
Aftershock is all about backyard racing on inappropriate bikes. Inspired by Dirt Quake in England and the Australian Flat Track scene, Aftershock is a private event held in Sydney by the Sydney Cafe Racers. It is all about the laughter, cracked ribs, mate-ship, stupidity and friendly racing. A weekend of Mud, Bikes, Bands, Beers, Tents and Shenanigans. In Perth, Aftershock is hosted by Perth Cafe Racers.

Back in 2012 I was contacted by Vaughn in Sydney who had just finished hammering out the bodywork on his RAW Honda CBX1000 Cafe Racer. Since then he’s been refining and tuning the bike and planning the final touches to get finish this beast of a project off. When I first saw it back then I was blown away by the work that had gone into the build and the unique design he had created and again I’m so damn impressed by the finished product that I had to share with you all again. I got in touch with Vaughn and he was kind enough to give us a full update on what he’s been doing with the bike… Continue reading →
A short compilation of the footage from the moments after the curtain call of ‘Chopped’ 2013. The following clip is an encounter of some moments from the Sunday night shakedown. Filmed and edited by ‘Noisy Brigade’.
Named after the building in Venice Beach where the Crocker motorcycles were made, comes 1346Venice. Owner, Chilli is paying homage to Crocker and is now manufacturing these bikes as collectors’ items.
After seeing the ebay-bought bike Ellaspede’s client Nick C asked them to collect a few months back, the Queensland-based guys thought he’d bought himself a few headaches. The bike was a 1982 Moto Guzzi V50-3 and looked like it had been used previously as a farm bike complete with cow manure. As the build progressed however, it became apparent that this neglected Italian had the potential to produce an end result that would go on to surprise more than a few. Continue reading →
Having travelled from the other side of the world, only to land in a new country, mostly alone, Brad found that his life in Sydney, Australia only really begun when he rediscovered his love of motorcycles on the back of a Yamaha SR400.
By virtue of being among the best-selling motorcycles in Japan over the last 30 or so years, the Yamaha SR400 is also one of the most customised bikes in the world. OZ-based Gasoline Custom Motorcycle have turned this one into a classic thumper mixed with some modern attitude. The raw finish of the Yammy is accentuated with a simple chrome headlight, hand fabricated rear seat base, LED shark tail light and satin black mini bullet indicators. While the calipers and master cylinders were, again, sourced from USA, most of the other bits have been custom fabricated by the guys in their East Sydney workshop. The stock exhaust also gets ditched in favour of a handcrafted piece from High Tech Mufflers. The rims, which came from a totaled Yamaha XS650 in the USA, are powder coated and set off with 18″ and 19″ Shinko Trials tyres and mean-looking black-coated disc rotors. Continue reading →
