Dolce far niente: A Yamaha XT 600 scrambler by Freeride

Yamaha XT 600 scrambler by Freeride Motos Racing
The sheer diversity of Freeride Motos Racing’s stable makes it difficult to lump them into one silo. You’re just as likely to find a svelte supermoto in their workshop, as you are a 90-year-old Moto Guzzi. Shop boss Pierre Dhers is clearly onto a good thing—so it’s no wonder that he gets return customers.

One such customer is Dakar Rally driver and flat track racer Pierre Lachaume. The two Pierres met some time ago when Monsieur Lachaume wanted a custom bike. He wanted his 1989 Yamaha XT 600 modified at first, but, after some deliberation, Freeride built him a stunning KTM flat tracker instead.

Patience is a virtue that he clearly possesses. Once the KTM was done, he headed back to Freeride’s workshop to get the XT 600 sorted too.…

It’s no secret that we have mixed feelings about the BMW R18. But there’s one thing we’re sure of: in the right hands, it has massive potential for customization. And few hands are as deft as Brice Hennebert’s.

We’ve been following Brice’s career for quite some time—from his early days as one half of Kruz Company, to his current work under the Workhorse Speed Shop brand. And the Belgian custom builder has yet to put a foot wrong.

Brice has a sharp eye, and a penchant for injecting retro racing style into his machines. He’s also not afraid to build them chunky, making his style perfectly suited to the R18’s generous real estate. This particular bike is a side-step from his usual fare though, laced with art deco design considerations.…

Blackbird: Plan B’s stealthy take on the Zero FX

Custom Zero FX by Plan B Motorcycles
Dirt bikes can make surprisingly good road customs, mostly due to their light weight and the easy tune-ability of most offroad powertrains. But an electric dirt bike? That’s something you don’t often see.

‘Blackbird’ comes from Italian builder Christian Moretti, who runs Plan B Motorcycles from his base in Laveno-Mombello, just outside Milan. Clad in stealthy black bodywork, its inspiration comes from an unusual source.

“The SR-71 Blackbird is one of the most iconic aircraft ever built, and it used the top-notch technology of its time,” says Christian. “Its unbelievable speed allowed it to simply leave missiles behind. Nowadays, electric bikes are arguably the top technology, but are they really working? For sure they can be pretty fast.”

The Zero FX is indeed pretty fast for an enduro bike.…
