Stay True Magazine is a fantastic, new online publication centred around classic, no bullshit motorcycling. Issue 3 of the free digital magazine was just released and if you like bikes, photography and racing, you’re going to want to see it. Seriously.
This fantastic short film covers the recent “Wheels and waves” weekend in Biarritz, it includes some of the most eye catching bikes and cars I’ve seen for some time and I’ve already pencilled the event in for 2013.
Deus Ex Machina’s ability to take a stock Yamaha SR500 and turn it into a stripped back cafe racer/summertime belter is well known and well respected.
This bike is Bare Bone Ride’s take on the Honda CB200T, the original bike is a fantastic, lightweight motorcycle that lends itself to cafe racer conversion with ease.
This custom Yamaha SR500 is one of my favourite recent builds from Stinky, they’ve gone to a lot of trouble here to give the bike…
The modern Triumph classic range is one of those most appealing groups of motorcycles currently being made, the only real issue I have is that I can’t quite decide between the Scrambler and the Thruxton.

I can’t tell if this picture is a ’60s original or a well-shot, modern photograph that has been staged unusually well. What do you think?
Deus Ex Machina has a refreshingly heretical approach to cafe racer building, this bike is one of their latest creations and you can tell at a glance that it’s a signature, antipodean cafe belter.
This is the 1952 Norton 500cc Model 30 Manx and this particular Manx has quite the personal history. It was shipped new to veteran Grand Prix racer Rudolf Runtsch in Vienna in ’52 and after a number…
Cafe Racer & The City was directed and filmed by the talented Alexander Khudokon in 2011, I have a soft spot for well made videos like this although I always feel like they just need a script in order to be made into a feature film.
Honda CX500 cafe racer conversions are becoming more and more popular, the unusual, shaft-drive bike’s from Honda never really saw huge commercial success when they were first released so it’s nice to see them having a renaissance of sorts in the modern day.
