This Oakland Racer fits just perfectly

Via Petrolicious – Some people might consider Mr. Brian Bent’s lifestyle extreme, an anachronism perhaps. But we have a feeling that he’d be OK with that. You see, when Brian purchased this 1927 Oakland he built the clutch pack himself. And while it had a Pontiac engine mounted in the chassis, he decided to move it forward. He thought about swapping out the wooden spokes for metal ones, but a chance encounter with a old man who shared an anecdote about metal spokes folding in a turn convinced him otherwise. Besides, they’ve lasted this long, haven’t they? Continue reading →

Custom / Kruz Co’s XS400

Kruz-Co-xs400-1

Kruz Customs describe themselves as ‘new to the scene’ builders from Belgium who take their inspiration from first-gen dirt track racers from the Seventies. They picked up this 1980 Yamaha XS400 Custom at the French border in a very sorry state and went about fixing it up before the project could get up and running. The custom rear seat was made at Niyona’s workshop and mounts neatly onto the custom rear loop. The coils were tucked away under the CB125-sourced tank. Other bits include SBK-spec Brembos up front, Brembo PR15 RCS clutch, custom headlight and fenders, Renthal custom handlebars with a classy Mini speedo, exhaust wrapped with stainless steel stitching and custom wiring.
