German Wolf Custom Streetfighters are specialists no doubt, as you can see from their take on the 1982 Laverda 3CL, which sports an almost classic cafe racer-ish approach without being OTT. Lots of goodies here including a German PSS Rau chassis. More info on Custom Wolf. Continue reading →
Yamaha’s XS360 never sold in huge numbers, admittedly outshone by its slighty bigger sibling, the XS400. Interestingly, both bikes featured an almost identical parallel-twin, air-cooled mill with a crank off-set of 180 degrees, as well as the same 6-speed transmission and frame.
This neat XS360 is by German custom shop, The Hookie, who have retained the most characteristic aspects of the bike while adding a little bit of their own flavour. The original handlebars have been ditched in favour of a pair of classic clip-ons, while a custom all-in-one seat/rear cowling comes in place of the stock seat. Other bits include a custom exhaust, cleaned up mid-frame section, knobbly rubber and deleted fenders. Scroll down for more images. Continue reading →
Around 20 years ago, Marcus Walz started his business customising motorcycles, beginning with the “Timeless” in 1993. Two decades on, more than 3000 friends, fans and clients celebrated the anniversary at Hockenheim, many of them bringing their own WALZ bikes to the Show.
Apart from the bikes, Mr. King Kerosin himself organized the legendary Red Carpet Lounge in the middle of the party tent, which was much bigger than last year. Some crazy on-stage party too, with Dougie and the Blind Brothers and the Hellabama Honky Tonks partying till they dropped.
Anyways, enough with the yabba dabba. Check out the mega image gallery. Continue reading →
