Classic Japan 2013

Yesterday in Melbourne we were gifted with a gorgeous sunny day to mark the start of summer. It also happened to be the same day as Classic Japan, a casual car show catering for Japanese cars and motorbikes that are 25 years or older. No prizes, no trophies, no egos, just a congregation of the […]

Suzuki GT750

11

A man on a mission, that’s how I’d describe Rassie, the guy behind this latest build. After owning no less than 4 of these bikes over the years, he decides to give it another crack and build his idea of the ultimate GT750. To achieve this he rectifies the handling issues of this older model […]

Not only has it been remounted, but it’s also received a little kick in the pants courtesy of a turbocharger and […]

Electric Mighty Boy

Mike from Sp33dy sent me the link to this left-of-field build. An electric engine swap is a slight change of pace from the hot rods, drifters, and turbocharged animals we’re used to reading about. In a world were sustainability and environmental consciousness are the dominant issues of society, maybe this is something we’re going to […]
