The stock model Moto Guzzi V7 Stone is actually a rather good motorcycle, it weighs in at a fairly light 179kgs and that v-twin produces 50hp and 42.7 ft lbs of torque.
This Honda CB750 cafe racer by Steel Bent Customs is a fantastic example of minimalist custom motorcycle building, there’s nothing on the bike that doesn’t need to be there from a purely functional perspective and I kind of think that this is how it should be.
The Yamaha RD 400 is a noisy, polluting, unreliable motorcycle. It’s also wonderful. I know that 2-strokes are frowned upon in the modern age of melting ice caps, vanishing glaciers, super-sized hurricanes and acid rain but if we put all of that aside for a moment, we all know that 2-strokes represent a high water mark on the amount of fun it’s possible to have on two wheels.
Classified Moto is a custom motorcycle garage based in Richmond, Virginia and run by talented bike builder, John Ryland. They have a signature style and most of the bikes that roll out of their workshop are instantly recognisable as Classified Moto customs, the gold anodised forks are usually a dead giveaway as is the bare metal…
This photograph beautifully captures the sense of speed of these two motorcycle racers, they appear to be racing the same model of motorcycle although I can’t for the life of me figure out what it is.
I was happy to learn last week that Norton Motorcycles have begun customer deliveries of the new Norton Commando 961 model. There had been some concern that the bikes weren’t ever going to ship due to financial issues but it now appears that, in true British style, they’ve hunkered down through the tough times and made it through. With a cup of tea in one hand and a biscuit in the other.
We’ve featured the gloriously heretical work of Super Rat Motorcycles in the past and so it was with great interest that I learned they’d built a new motorcycle, doubly so when I was told it was a Triumph Trident cafe racer.
This stunning Honda CB750 cafe racer is the result of a collaboration between Dime City Cycles and Iron & Air Magazine, it was presented to the public for the first time at the The Barber Vintage Festival last week.

This is another one of those fantastic old photographs featuring an old motorcycle which I know nothing about, rather than venturing a guess as I usually do I’m just going to throw it right to the comments and ask for your best guesses, with extra points for people who can tell me who the rider is.
If you’ve been a regular reader of Silodrome for more than a few weeks you’ll know of our fondness for the Spaniards over at Radical Ducati, today we’re featuring a rather unusual build from the team at RD, it’s a classic Ducati 350 single and it’s a far cry from their more modern regular fare.
These stunning Benelli racers are custom built motorcycles were hand-built in Spain, they’re based on the 1975 Benelli 750 and each one is made according to customer specifications.
