Not that I’m complaining, but this brilliant-looking 1977 BMW R60/7 from Blaz Sustarsic and ER motorcycles is the second BMW we’ve featured this week. A nice trend, and it’s good to see old BMW motos being brought back to life like this. Another ER motorcycle (‘83 BMW R80) was recently featured on Pipeburn.
“Giving my full attention to little details that make a motorcycle special, unique…a work of art.”

It used to be hard for me to look at a BMW K100 and see the possibilities. It just never did anything for me. But with this outstanding rebuild by Marc Robrock, I stand corrected. This BMW was featured on Bike EXIF awhile back, and Marc is starting a new company called motofication. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for Mr. Robrock.

“I remembered the BMW K100, a bike that was so expensive, when it first came out, you could have bought a car for the same money. Today I have to admit, it wasn’t the ugliest bike, but there are some forms of a K100 that are really not nice.”

Based out of New Bedford, Mass., Choppahead is at the forefront of new (2001 and on) Triumph chopper scene. In fact, Choppahead offered the first production hardtail frame for new Triumphs. In this interview, owners Jay and Truth expound on the Choppahead’s mission, how they bring the punk ethic to their business, and explain what a badass cafe racer is doing in their lineup.
“We are Choppahead…It’s a metaphor for who we are – we’re societal outcasts – shitty, gritty, grimy old punk rock kids but at the same time stand up dudes with class.”
Chris Hunter at Bike EXIF – curator of the best custom bikes in the world – presents his annual calendar. Expertly printed by Octane Press. A stellar line-up of some of the best known custom bike builders (and their motorcycles) in the world. Shot by some of our favorite photographers – many whose work you’ve seen highlighted here in the past.
“It’s nearing the end of the year – and if you don’t understand this agrarian concept – you need this calendar.
On second thought, do yourself a solid, and order up a pair of these bad boys.”
