Japanese-Custom-Kawasaki-250TR-4

If you’re a motorcycle geek, you’ll know that the Kawasaki 250TR is a street legal dual-purpose bike sold in Japan and other Eastern markets. The 249cc air-cooled bike was stripped down by Motor Garage Goods to the frame, which has been modified at the rear to adapt the new seat. The engine is stock except for a wrapped pipe and trumpet style muffler, while the stock tank gets ditched in favour of a banana fuel tank painted in blue with gold stripes and classic Kawasaki emblems. The rear features a bespoke round-bob rear fender and a G-suspension. The front receives a vintage bar fitted with Amal 364 type throttle holder and Jack Hummer grip, with the retro headlight coming from Bates and the tyres from Firestone. Continue reading →

“In his own words, Shinya Kimura is a motorcycle mechanic. To the rest of the world, Shinya is an artist, building kinetic sculptures that are and very labor intensive, one-of-a-kind, and ultimately utilitarian.

His bikes are tough, perfectly made machines that are thrilling to ride. In this film, Danielle explores briefly why motorcycles and what makes the work compelling for Shinya, and the feeling he gets while riding. The film is a supplement to the third issue of On Paper Magazine.”

Mystery Suzuki GS1200…or GSX1100…or GS1000…or…

Suzuki_GS1200_GSX1100_GS1000_01

This bike has been making circles around the interweb for a good number of years, but it always seems like nobody knows the details, and they were never published. What we know so far is that the engine is from the GSX1100 (looks like it, but the Suzuki experts need to approve this), the gas tank is GS1000 (maybe) and the swing arm is ???. The frame look like a Spondon unit, and the front fork is Ohlins (see the small blue sticker on the lower part). The brake calipers look like Yamaha stuff…but what is it exactly??? More pictures after the jump. Continue reading →
