Motoism Honda GL500-JPN Motorcycle

In the annals of performance motorcycles, the Honda GL500 Silverwing wouldn't make the cut — and that was part of the inspiration the Motoism GL500-JPN. A massive overhaul takes the formerly sedate little cruiser to modern bike more capable than even Honda could have imagined. USD forks and brakes from a Honda CBR600RR shore up the front end, while the rear has been converted to a mono-shock setup from the original dual. Custom spoked alloy wheels wear aggressive enduro tires, while a hand-laid fiberglass fascia houses two HID lamps and LED running light. The bike is finished with a complete motor tear down and rebuild for another few decades of riding. Production is limited to just 16 units.

  • Capelo's Garage x Elemental Rides Yamaha SR400 Motorcycle

    It's nearly the end for Yamaha's little single-lunger, the SR400. Emissions regulations are going to put the 400cc standard out of production, and the writing is on the wall for the reliable air-cooled single. But before that happens, Portuguese bike builders Nuno Capêlo and Ricardo Santos took to the bike before it rides off into the sunset. What they came up with is a modern cafe-styled SR400 that harks back to some of the great Yamahas of the past. A completely revised suspension with USD forks makes the bike very corner friendly, and hand-laid fiberglass front and rear fairings give it a nouveau retro look. Wider rubber and a conversion to front drum brakes speak to racers of the past, and the cork seating surface and grips are a nod to one of Portugal's chief exports. The SR400 may be going, but this example won't be forgotten.

  • Ducati Xdiavel Thiverval

    For 67 years, Ducati has garnered a reputation for high-performance motorcycles. From the 750 SuperSport to the Monster and the Panigale, Ducati has produced bleeding-edge bikes with their famous L-twin engines. It was quite a departure when the Italian manufacturer introduced the Diavel, a bike aimed squarely at a uniquely American segment: The long-wheelbase cruiser. If there is one thing Americans love to do to their cruisers, it's customize them. Ducati put an XDiavel in the hands of Belgian customizer Fred Krugger, and the result is the Thiverval. Named for a small race track outside of Paris, the bike's design puts a futuristic spin on the classic cafe racer concept while staying true to the underlying Ducati heritage, turning the idea of a power cruiser on its head — much like the Diavel itself.
