Being practical, is that nature or nurture? I’ve got friends who grew up around cars and bikes but watching them just pick up a screwdriver (usually the wrong type) is simply painful. Buttered chop sticks for fingers. […]

They all make it look so easy.  The volume of brilliantly executed custom bikes flooding our computer screens from both pro and amateur builders alike belie a key fact. Building a beautiful custom bike is not as […]

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 […]

Pacific Motorcycle Co ’69 BSA A65

Having spent the weekend in a big tent with nearly 100 bikes, road and race, from Pre-war Indians to recent Daytona winning Superbikes, it’s easy to see how the custom scene takes inspiration from a wonderfully varied source. […]

Josh Mott’s CX500

We’ve featured a couple of Josh Mott’s bikes in the Shed already, and his work is always top notch, but this latest JMR build is probably one of the nicest CX500′s I’ve seen. It’s striking, clean and has […]

With Sideburn Magazine’s third iteration of DirtQuake just over a week away it seems fitting that we feature a turn-left inspired build. Plus I am massively biased towards dirt oriented machinery and always fancied tearing a Multistrada […]

Foundry’s Matchless Bobber

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 […]

DildoBike by Luca & 2RH

It’s 6am and in my sleepy haze I’m not quite sure whether this is The Bike Shed or Viz magazine I’m writing for. Dildo Bike, Two Right Hands and Roger The Painter. Surely it’s April 1st and […]
