    It was a cold winter day when BikeBrewers took the trip to pay a visit to the digs of UNIKAT Motorworks. It had been a visit which was long overdue. We have been writing about Grzegorz Korczak and his team of highly skilled professionals for many years and each time he has managed to surprise us with incredible gems that rolled out of their workshop. It was a long ride to get there from the, but fortunately there was no heavy snow in Poland at the time, which made for a long but comfortable ride. Grzegroz was already waiting for us with a nice cup of coffee and local pastries, but we were in for a bigger treat.

    Swiss Sense The last few years we have been receiving less good news from Switzerland. There is some numbnut who is trying to convince the world we will only be happy when we own nothing. Well, after laying eyes on this bike, we could not disagree more with this character and […]

    We have become accustomed to the motorcycles that leave the workshop of Unikat. The Warsaw Poland based outfit have their own unique take on a number of different motorcycles. That’s why their motto is: “1-of-1”. As in, there is and will only be 1 model of each of their handcrafted machines. […]

    Unusual suspect The Yamaha XS400 is not a bike that is particularly popular or well-known with bikers. It was built and sold between 1978 and 1987, and was in fact preceded by the XS360. Severely overshadowed by its more successful siblings at that time, the XT500 and XS650, Yamaha did manage […]

    Long runner The Harley-Davidson Motorcycle company is one of the world’s oldest motorcycle manufacturers. One of the company’s most successful models has got to be the Sportster, which has been produced continuously since 1957.

    The last couple of years I’ve seen custom bike shops pop-up everywhere. Some could be classified as one-day flies, but some are definitely here to stay. Toma Customs from Brussels (Belgium) is one of the latter category. He’s delivering bike after bike (also see this and this bike from Toma Customs.)and […]

    Industrial Moto’s first build was a 250 Suzuki cafe racer. It was purchased locally in Virginia by a guy who had never ridden a motorcycle before. Since that time he has completed a motorcycle trip across Vietnam and put many miles on his Suzuki closer to home. When he decided it […]

    We can almost put it on our calendar every month: a fresh build from our friend Pepo Rosell of XTR Pepo. And as always, it’s a little surprise for us what base bike he took. XTR usually has a special love for uncommon machines. And this month he took a brand […]

    I don’t think there’s a bike that has been featured twice on the same website. On any custom motorcycle website (correct me if I’m wrong). When the owner of this bike submitted it, I didn’t recognize it in the first place. But after a second look (and a little hint of […]

    Just a tiny distance from the Eastern border of the Netherlands you will find the German village of Rheda-Wiedenbrück. A lovely town with a center brimming with traditional ‘fachwerk’ houses. Amongst the 47.000 villagers you will find the Schenk family business. Headed by father Rainer (referred to as ‘Boss’) he and his […]

    As my first *official* motorcycle, I cherish some great moments with the Suzuki SV650. I really loved that punchy V-twin engine, and when you come from an underpowered riding-lesson machine, the 650cc twin is a big relieve and makes you think you’re on a rocket. Unless the fact that this SV650 […]
