We’re used to seeing desirable CX500s now, so I won’t start this story with the usual Plastic Maggot pre-amble, but this build does take the whole pre-worn look to extremes with a corroded copper-coated tank that is […]

Hook, Line & Sinker… I’m enrapt. Now, I’m not a Harley man, I’m not even a bobber fan, but this one is simply a fantastic bike and I genuinely want it. I need to own one. Don’t […]

If you follow the Bike Shed at all you’ll know that we’re big fans of Auto Fabrica. Bujar & Gaz are young guns with an engineering background, blending style with substance on builds that make CGI renders […]

Coming into the scene from modern bikes and sports-nakeds, old school brands like Matchless have never really been on my personal  radar. I appreciate the heritage and the die-hard classic following, but I wasn’t expecting to fall […]

Kawasaki’s W650/800 doesn’t get as much custom-love as you’d expect. Sure, the bike was adopted by Deus as one of their main build platforms but considering how well suited the bike is as custom donor you’d think […]

It’s Honda Tracker-time again. The more we see these simple 80s and 90s Honda singles stripped down for dual-purpose duties the more we love them. This one is based around a 1987 Honda XL 600R, many of […]

Triumph Bonnies always go down well on the Bike Shed’s pages. Straight out of the box you get all the basics you need for a desirable modern retro, but as we all know, there’s plenty of room […]

Since the demise of Radical Ducati we’ve all been left a little hungry for outrageous custom Ducs, but several people have stepped-up to the plate recently with builds that tick the aesthetics, style and performances boxes, including […]

Over recent months the standard of BMW Boxer customs has been sky-rocketing as the pro builders get better at fettling these ubiquitous machines, and as the competition increases, pushing the need to stand-out from the crowd right […]
