Based on a Yamaha TW 225, the Deus Ex Machina Two-Up Yamaha Motorcycle plusses the diminutive bike with a number of upgrades. The engine and wheels are done up with black paint, the better to contrast with the vintage Husky aluminum fuel tank sporting a fresh white paint job from Dutchy Motorcycle. A SuperTrapp muffler provides a deeper growl, air now arrives via a high-flow K&N filter, an EasyRider seat ensures a comfortable ride, and the twin head and tail lights give it an even more recognizable look.
The most well known American daredevil of all time left a lasting mark on our culture. Known for his ramp to ramp motorcycle jumps, Knievel also was the subject of two films. The second film, Viva Knievel! starred Knievel himself and featured this 1976 Harley-Davidson XL1000 Motorcycle. The bike is a 1976 Ironhead Sportster 1000 made to look like one of Knievel's XR-750 jump bikes. It was on display in a personal museum for many years and restored cosmetically by the man who painted Knievel's jump bikes. Available at auction in January in Las Vegas.
Based on the notoriously '80s-styled BMW R80, the Autofabrica Type 10 Motorcycle gives the bike new life as a pared-down custom. The original bike was completely stripped down, revealing the airhead engine and graceful lines of the tank. Modifications then began, with the front end lowered for a more aggressive look, red acrylic brake light fins and frame tube-mounted turn indicators added, and hand-bent marine-grade SAE 316 stainless steel exhaust pipes attached. The slightly revised tank now sports a deep blue paint job, while the tan leather seat accommodates two riders thanks to hidden, removable passenger foot pegs.
Owning a new motorcycle can be great, until you pull up to a stranger riding the same exact bike. The guys at British Customs are out here creating one of a kind works of art that will separate you from the pack. Built in collaboration with legendary street tracker builder Richard Pollock, the Tracker Classic consists of some features blessed by the man himself. Like the Mule Tri-Oil Cooler Kit, Mule Swingarm Spacers, the Mule Bar, to name a few. They've combined a rebuilt stock motor with a few important tweaks to give you just the power you need on the streets or to leave your friends in the dust on the track.
It's based on a Honda Supersport with a 125cc engine. But you'd be hard-pressed to tell by looking at it. Inspired by Jet Age futurism, the Bandit9 Ava Motorcycle is a chrome-clad ride that's sure to be a highlight of any collection. It's built entirely by hand, with a high-grade steel unibody and faring, unique dual rear shocks, a sand casted swing arm, and a calf leather seat. Other highlights include the naked speedometer, custom handlebars with turn signals at the ends, and the low-hanging exhaust. Limited to only 9 units, with free door-to-door shipping so it's as shiny when it arrives as it was when it left the shop.
A collaboration two years in the making, the Ducati Scrambler Italia Independent takes the Italian bike manufacturer's '70s-inspired bike and adds a touch of fashion-focused cafe racer flair. Unique features include a black engine with brushed head fins, a black exhaust with a Termignoni silencer, lower handlebars with variable sections and aluminum rear mirrors sprouting from the ends, and a matte black paint job applied using a brushing process similar to that of the unique copper color that defines the front mudguard, nose fairing, frame, and wheels. Limited to only 1,077 individually-numbered units.
Plain looks, famous owner. Steve McQueen's 1963 Triumph Bonneville Motorcycle is an exciting piece of motoring history, and not just because of the star who rode it. Bud Ekins, a friend of and stunt double for McQueen and a well-known motorcycle racer himself, modified the bike for off-road racing. He added a number of specialized parts before handing it off to their buddy Kenny Howard — better known as Von Dutch — to be given a plain paint job, since Dutch's trademark pinstriping was likely to be worn away by sand and dirt while riding. It's this rich history that gives the bike its character, and makes it a covetable prize for memorabilia and motorcycle enthusiasts alike.
Originally built for a H-D dealership contest, the Analog Harley-Davison Street 750 Motorcycle takes one of the company's most affordable models and turns it into a rugged custom scrambler. Gone are the stock wheels, replaced with custom spokes and rims from Buchanan's, wrapped in Continental TKC80 tires. Fox Podium RC1 Shocks help absorb bumps in the rear, and are topped with a custom rear fender and an Analog-sourced tail light, while a CNC-milled aluminum luggage rack accommodates the Cotter Pin tool and luggage rolls. The engine's growl is now heard through a two-into-one stainless steel exhaust system capped by a Cone Engineering muffler, and has a custom perforated heat shield on the side to help keep you cool on longer rides.
With a clean, simple design, the BMW R NineT Scrambler Motorcycle marries the freedom and customization options of a scrambler with legendary German engineering. It's powered by an air-cooled, 1,170 cc flat-twin boxer engine creating 110hp, set inside a specially developed steel tubular space frame that uses the engine as a key load-bearing component. The raised exhaust has two vertically arranged rear silencers that help keep the bike thin while providing a throaty sound, and the black-coated frame, swing arm, wheels — 19-inch at the front and 17-inch at the rear — fork tubes, and engine housing contrast nicely with the two-tone silver gas tank, brown seat, and circular headlamp.
Powered by the same crossplane, 999cc inline-four engine as the race-ready YZF-R1, the Yamaha MT-10 Motorcycle merges track-worthy performance with street-friendly conveniences. Its traction control system, three riding modes, and slipper clutch also come from its high-performance cousin, while its short wheelbase, cruise control, and LCD multi function instrument panel make it a blast to ride at any speed. Available in black, grey and green, blue and black, or all-black, but unfortunately not in the USA (yet).
No one rides a motorcycle in Star Wars. If they did, they'd ride the Ural Dark Force Motorcycle. Inspired by the iconic film series, this sidecar-equipped bike comes in a murdered out black livery even Vader would be proud of. There's an Enduro bench seat with room for your Sith apprentice while a Stormtrooper rides alongside, high-visibility LED lighting, a 41hp, 749cc engine for escaping Rebel fire, Brembo brakes for quick stops, and even a custom mount for your Lightsaber. Hyperdrive not included.
"Factory" and "Custom" tend to be mutually exclusive terms in the world of cafe racers, but the Triumph Thruxton R Motorcycle manages to be both at once. Powered by a 1,200cc liquid-cooled engine, this six-speed ride has a number of standard performance-enhancing features, like an adjustable Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes, Showa big piston forks, traction control, ABS, and ride-by-wire throttle. It's also fully modern, with LED rear lighting, a USB charging socket for your gadgets, and twin clocks with a digital menu system. The sleek fuel tank is the industry's first with a Monza cap, but it's the huge number of Triumph-made accessories that help let you make it yours, providing a custom experience right at the dealership.
What started as a client's need for a new seat became a total transformation. Named after the German tanks of WWII, the Maria Riding Company Panzer Motorcycle is similarly rugged. A low, aggressive stance and fat tires make it look as mean as it sounds on the road, while small details like the modified airbox and hidden battery keep your eyes moving. Finished off with a red painted frame that, while a bit risky, makes this bike stand out in just the right way.
Named for the Milanese word for "two" — referring to the number of cylinders in its S&S X Wedge engine — the CR&S Duu Motorcycle can be as simple or as refined as you like. The engine serves as the main heart of the bike, attaching to a stainless steel chassis and a five- or six-speed gearbox. The rest of the specifics are determined by which version you choose, as there are 10 different variations, each with its own colors, bodywork, and other adornments. No matter which you decide on, however, one thing remains the same: the near-instant access to torque and the throaty exhaust that make it such fun to ride.
Powered by a 162 hp Testastretta engine, the Ducati Diavel Carbon Motorcycle is a nice compromise between street cruiser and race-ready superbike. Thanks to the use of composite materials and machined aluminum components, the bike has a dry weight of just 452lb, yet still has a strong tubular steel Trellis frame, six-speed gearbox, LCD instrument display, and twin lateral radiators to keep things cool while keeping the front of the bike looking clean. Available in a handsome Asphalt Grey and Matte Carbon livery.
A return to form compared to its uncharacteristically heavy, sluggish predecessor, the Sport Scout was crucial to the continued success of Indian in the 1930s. Noted collector and Indian enthusiast Steve McQueen knew this of course, which is why he had this 1934 Indian Sport Scout Motorcycle in his garage. Powered by a 750 cc engine, it has the lightweight open frame and Euro-style fork that the model was know for, as well as a ivory and black paint scheme. Purchased at a Bonham's McQueen sale in 2006, it's in great condition, and comes with an Idaho title signed by the legend himself.
They're just concepts for now — but we're not the only ones hoping these Honda Grom Scramblers become production machines in the near future. Combining the pint-size power and beginner-friendly ride of the Grom with the versatility of a scrambler, these bikes are powered by 50cc engines, and designed for one thing and one thing only: fun. The retro-styled Concept One comes finished in a silver and black race-style livery, while the Concept Two offers a green, black, and tan color scheme with a (slightly) more modern design.
Named for the edible that leads one from the Matrix, the Deus Ex Machina Red Pill Motorcycle is likewise meant to rescue you from an overly-digital world. Based on a Kawasaki W650, this bike is made for hauling a surf board to and from the beach, with a custom rack that sits on the side. That's far from the only custom piece, though, as the ace bars and front and rear fenders are also one of a kind, giving the bike a suitably laid-back feel that's perfect for the shoreline.
In addition to being a soccer legend, model, and UNICEF ambassador, David Beckham is a motorcycle enthusiast. His British Customs DBSC Motorcycle is a rugged, versatile bike that matches his persona. It was built to handle a variety of situations and riding conditions, and as such features a large number of custom parts, including Hagon piggyback shocks, offroad-ready tires, a burnished Drag Pipe exhaust, a distressed leather Slammer Seat, a gold drive chain from D.I.D, and an all-new Triple Clamp for the Motogadget Mini speedo. While you can't buy one of your own, you can get a long way towards building one using the parts list on the bike's info page.
Track-worthy performance. Everyday practicality. The Ducati Monster 1200 R Motorcycle offers both in a single package. Its 1200 cc Testastretta twin-cylinder engine produces 160hp, making it the most powerful naked bike the Italian manufacturer has ever offered, with 10% more horsepower than its S sibling. It also stands out thanks to a redesigned, higher tailpiece, seat, and overall stance, and adds new suspensions, separate rider and passenger footpegs, new carbon fiber components to lower the weight, and a TFT instrument display that changes its layout based on which of the three riding modes you're in. Available in red or black.
Limited edition and outfitted with previously custom-only parts, the Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S Motorcycle sets a new bar for softail performance. It's powered by the Screamin' Eagle Air-Cooled Twin Cam 110B, which is paired to a six-speed Cruise Drive transmission to deliver smooth shifts and plenty of power. It also has vintage-inspired handlebars and speedometer, as wells as standard anti-lock brakes and hidden rear shocks. Available in Olive Gold Denim paint with military-inspired graphics and black details — pictured — or in a more subdued Vivid Black.
We don't expect that you'll actually take it into combat. But the Confederate G2 P51 Combat Fighter Motorcycle does resemble something from a futuristic army. The entire bike is built from 6061 aerospace billet aluminum, including the structural fuel tank, industry-first structural intake box that ties straight into the CNC'd structural intake manifold, and the unitized engine block and heads that help it pump out 200 hp. It's limited to just 61 units: 31 "blonde" models in raw machined billet, and 30 in anodized black.
One of just three bikes built for the film, this Jurassic World Triumph Scrambler Motorcycle is a functional piece of movie memorabilia. Powered by a twin-cylinder 865cc engine, it features a custom single seat, rack, Arrow Racing exhaust, footpegs, handlebars, and Matte Green paint job. As expected, it will come complete with certificate of authenticity, and proceeds from the auction will go to benefit The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride, a global series of motorcycle events that raises money for prostate cancer research. And don't worry about the other two identical bikes: since one is in Chris Pratt's garage and the other at Triumph's UK headquarters, you're not going to see either on the road any time soon.
Stunningly simple, the design of the Auto Fabrica Type 6 Motorcycle in many ways hides the work it took to realize it. The custom build is based on a Yamaha XS650, which has seen the engine rebuilt, converted to a single carb, and fitted to handmade stainless steel exhaust pipes that extend all the way to the filter. To keep a clean top line, the headstock was lowered to match the one-piece aluminum tank and seat base, and the cleanliness continues in the front wheel with a Laverda SF750 hub paired with 19-inch spoke rims.
Made with summertime in mind, the Deus Ex Machina Yamaha XV950 D-Side Motorcycle is an ideal warm-weather bike. The Dues team didn't cut or weld the frame at all, instead choosing to add a custom rear frame and seat, custom fuel tank and fenders, a beefed-up brake system, exhaust, intake, and speedometer. But the biggest addition is the boat-inspired sidecar, with a wooden deck at the rear for added storage and a surf rack stuck between it and the bike.
Built for a client who is a graphic designer, this one-of-a-kind Yamaha Scorpio Motorcycle is an inventive, ambitious creation. Thrive Motorcycles in Jakarta are the architects of this impressive machine, stripping almost everything away and starting a 2008 Yamaha Scorpio engine. The body was cut from a sheet of aluminum, and then a custom built frame was added to accomodate it. It was then outfitted with a pair of 18" spoke rims and trial tread tires, stainless steel exhaust, square headlight casing, and even a smartphone mount for the dashboard.
Sometimes custom builds veer so far from the original bike that they become basically unrecognizable. That's not the case with the Ton-Up BMW R80 Indira Motorcycle. It's respectful of the original design, while adding enough new features to forge its own identity. There's a new fuel tank, a lowered front suspension, a shortened sub-frame, a new seat, smaller handlebars, headlight, taillight, and indicators, a new exhaust, and handsome black and brown livery. Yet the BMW engine at its heart is still there, visible as ever, an indication to fellow gearheads of the bike's rich heritage.
Celebrating BMW's tradition of form and function, the Deus Ex Machina BMW Heinrich Maneuver Motorcycle is a throwback to the work of the renowned German fuel tank designer Karl Heinrich, for whom it's named. Indeed, the oversized gloss white and alloy tank is a centerpiece for the bike, using an elaborate network of channels and baffles to keep the fuel from sloshing around. Other notable features include a bespoke sub frame, a hand-crafted alloy and suede seat, slightly repositioned the foot-pegs and controls for ideal body placement, and a Motogadget dash.
A classically-trained industrial designer. A client who wanted a low-maintenance solution. And a classic airhead. Add them together and you get the Tim Harney 1976 BMW 75/6 Motorcycle. This subtle update on the vintage bike sports a number of custom enhancements, including Mikuni VM32 carburators, shortened Suzuki DR650 forks, a Harley-Davidson Sportster headlight, an electronic ignition, a custom 304 stainless steel exhaust with an Arrow muffler, and a new, smaller battery with custom-wired fuse box. The cowhide-covered seat, engine-matching frame, black subframe, and blue gray paint on the new gas tank apply the finishing touches.
