I’ll be sending pictures of this brilliant, minimalist Yamaha XS 650 Street Tracker over to Rex at Garage Project Motorcycles, he’s been advising me on a project I have planned to build an XS650 Tracker and this bike has a lot of the elements I want to incorporate into the design. The engine in the…
The custom Sportster is one of those types of motorcycles that can really go either way. I’ve seen beautiful examples and I’ve seen garish and raked out hack jobs that’ve made me want to set them alight, just to put them out of their misery.
Roland Sands Design took the newish Harley-Davidson Blackline Softail and built the bike that the designers at Harley would have built, if they didn’t have to answer to middle management and bean counters.
Anyone who’s been reading Silodrome for a while will know of my undying passion for flat tracker motorcycles, the guys at Co-Built Motorcycles have taken their own passion for the bikes to its inevitable conclusion, they build their own. And then they race them.

The BSA B25 Starfire was originally produced between 1968 and 1970, the mechanically simple 250cc single cylinder has been a very popular “fun bike” for thousands of Brit bike enthusiasts over the ensuing 40 years.
The happiest times I ever had as a kid were trips to the speedway with the old man, a bucket of stale popcorn and a sip of Dad’s beer, nothing beats it.
I can’t help but love the work of Hide Motorcycles, this bike, named the Genuine Speed Sportster is a great example of the Japanese garage’s work.
This all-original ’72 Harley-Davidson XR750 Flat Tracker was originally owned by AMA racer Davey Camlin, he used it as his primary race bike as an amateur and, then sold it when he went professional in order to buy a new XR.
This is the new custom by Deus Bali, it’s leather wrapped surfboard holder is the obvious standout feature, a feature that’ll get plenty of use in it’s new role as a chap called Tim’s primary wave hunter on the Indonesian island of Bali.
