CUSTOM BIKES OF THE WEEK
A bespoke scrambler with MV Agusta power, a stunning Honda CB550 cafe racer from France, and a track-ready Ducati Monster S4R tribute to Mike Hailwood. These are the machines that revved our engines this week.
Honda CB550 by Bad Winners A few weeks ago we were taken aback by Lossa Engineering’s candy-apple Honda CB550. This time around the red CB we’re drooling over with comes from Bad Winners of Paris, France.
Viba Lara 800 There is no denying the extreme rise in popularity of scrambler styled bikes. The pitch is so fevered that even the OEMs are cashing in on the trend. Thankfully, their involvement has caused builders to up their game—and some will mass-produce their creations.
Ducati Monster S4R MH Tribute We’re no strangers to Paolo ‘Tex’ Tesio’s creative abilities. His body kits for the ferocious S4R version of the Ducati Monster turn the dial to eleven, delivering a modern take on Bologna’s classic.
Honda CB750 by Thirteen & Company Los Angeles-based Thirteen & Company were briefed to create a post-apocalyptic, Mad Max-style ride for their client. This 1972 Honda CB750, named The Russian, is what they delivered.
Moto Guzzi 1100 Sport by Eduardo Nauiack It seems obvious that this 1995 Guzzi cafe racer comes from the hands of an industrial designer. Its mechanical vibe speaks to Eduardo Nauiack’s obsession with extracting function over form.
