Supacustom's Osborne Triumph

Ross Osbourne, a Melbourne Australia based blogger and self-proclaimed gearhead has turned out his own heavily modified Triumph café racer.  The bike started its life as a 2001 Bonneville but didn't last more than a few weeks that way before Osborne had stripped it down to half a bike.  He designed everything from the beautiful tank and tail piece, custom rearsets on his CAD program, down to his own electrical loom from scratch.  The end result is a clean, timeless café that most certainly rides as good as it looks.

His blog is supacustom and has some great 2-wheel content.  A direct link to his build can be found here.


Jack Pine :: Pier 18

Hammarhead Industries out of Philadelphia, PA has a tuned up Scrambler, affectionately known as the Jack Pine that is apparently equal parts show and go.



At first glance it doesn't seem to be much more than a slightly modified Scrambler but after a second look - and especially after a deeper dive into Jack Pine's specs - and seeing their newest video Pier 18 (below) - it's apparent that this bike was built to rip.
