Not biker-ish, but you have to watch this awesome demo reel from Sweatpants Media, which has been shot on Red Epic and Phantom Flex4K
More objet d’art than timepiece, the Atmos Hermes Clock is a functional thing of beauty. A three-part collaboration between luxury brands Hermes, Jaeger-LeCoultre, and Saint-Louis, this crystal bubble globe houses an incredible piece of time-keeping technology – the Atmos clock. The world’s only mechanical timepiece that does not require any winding from a human hand — it uses changes in the surrounding temperature to interact with a gas-filled capsule that expands and contracts to wind the movement. With design from Hermes, and master hand-made glass craftsmanship from Saint-Louis, this clock represents an incredible partnership, ingenious craftsmanship, and attention to detail completely uncommon among average household items. The price is unknown at this time, but it sure looks like we can’t afford it. Sadly. Continue reading →
Our friends at Silodrome posted this story about Gregor Halenda and his small team building an AWD KTM 990 and then deciding to go out and do the world’s first two wheeled burnout with it. Apparently, the project itself started out as a plan to just powdercoat the swingarm, but before anyone knew it, the mission to create an AWD KTM was well underway. The full build process was catalogued on the ADVRider forum here and the film above shows some great detail of the bike running with both wheels spinning.

This awesome bike took birth from a rather simple idea. You know, turbochargers are ‘the’ most common solution for extra speed these days, to the point where I can say to some random dude “Hey man, you think slow, maybe you should add a turbo!” or something like that. Even then, adding boost to a Honda Monkey seems like overkill, but that is exactly what UK-based OORacing did, thanks to their massive experience in turbocharging multi-cylinder engines.

Cool Honda Monkeys coming up for auction with Bonhams on the 20th of October 2013.
This Honda ST50 Dax was hand-built by Japanese custom motorcycle legend Seigu Ikeuchi, whose company Bodyline Customs is one of Japan’s foremost custom vehicle builders. It was inspired by the long, low motorcycles used for drag racing although with its 4.5hp rating from its 49cc engine, it probably won’t break the 11 second 1/4 mile. Continue reading →
The father-son duo at Wolf Creative Customs has been crafting some fine motorized bicycles for quite a while now, all of them placing function over form. Take a look at this sweet board tracker inspired custom, which we think is a perfect blend between bicycles and engines. The air-cooled, single cylinder 200cc engine is fed by a 22mm Mikuni carburettor, while the straight pipe exhaust lets the engine breathe to its full potential. The frame is a modified bicycle unit designed by Richard Nelson Helmutt, accompanied by front and rear disc brakes, as well as a reduction drive system based on the same design as the old board track racers.
