CUSTOM BIKES OF THE WEEK
A Mike Hailwood Ducati Scrambler tribute, the winner of Indian’s Project Scout program, and a killer Yamaha RD350 from Twinline Motorcycles. Meet the machines that got our motors running this week.
Mike Hailwood Ducati Scrambler Thailand probably isn’t the first place you’d think of to honor Ducati’s racing heroes of yesteryear. And yet, Ducati Thailand’s owner, Apichat Leenutaphong, is doing just that—quietly cementing relationships and creating ‘factory custom’ homages.
Indian Motorcycles Project Scout winner Indian’s Project Scout program has already impressed us with a number of standout builds. They’re not only rolling testaments to the builders’ abilities, but also to Indian’s commitment to individuality and creativity. The trophy hardware was recently handed out, and this board tracker from Terrebonne, Quebec, took home top honors.
Honda CB Type II Concept If we had fears that the modern classic movement was about to stall, Triumph’s new Bonneville line has undoubtedly put them to bed. Add Yamaha’s brutish XSR family into the mix, and it seems like things are actually picking up steam.
Yamaha RD350 by Twinline Motorcycles There’s a tasteful elegance to the builds coming out of Twinline Motorcycles. The Seattle-based shop thrives on clean, minimalist construction with an emphasis on performance. Their latest experiment with an oil-burner, a 1973 Yamaha RD350, exudes this to a tee.
