Not too often do I get excited about a new motocross bike, but there's been exceptions. Husqvarna has been on a roll lately, and they're continuing their great design and new look with the upcoming 2016 FC models. Here's some photos from Derestricted.com that I can't stop staring at.

I love everything that Icon 1000 builds, and the "New Jack" 1982 Suzuki Katana that was just released fits right in with the other spectacular vintage-future monsters they've created. If you follow many motorcycle blogs or social media accounts, you'll see this bike everywhere very soon. From Icon 1000: New Jack uses a host of late model componentry to bring the Kat into fighting trim. A 1200cc motor, transplanted from a Suzuki Bandit, provides simple yet effective horsepower. As is often the case, big motors expose big structural problems. Therefore, the New Jack’s frame was triangulated with 1/4” plate to keep the wobbly’s at bay. Modern swingarm, superbike suspension, and a full rework of brakes help keep the rest of the ride five by five. More: http://www.icon1000.com/bike/new-jack/
In an ongoing effort to make the world love the new Scramblers even more, Ducati just showed off three new custom builds this morning in Verona, Italy at their Custom Rumble Kick Off Project. All three are different and unique, with Deux's being my personal favorite for originality. Check out the photos below, or head to Ducati's Facebook page for more. Builders: Officine Mermaid, Deux Ex Machina Italy, and Mr. Martini
One of my favorite bike builders, Shaw Speed & Custom, transformed a Harley Softail into another masterpiece for watch manufacturer Bell & Ross. Then they took the bike to the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah and got these incredible photos. View the full photo gallery on their Facebook page HERE.
Kurt Diserio's recent 1981 Honda CB650 cafe racer build, named The Purple Owl, has been making it's rounds on the web and social media! Wild Native Design would like to thank everyone that has shared or featured the build on their website, Facebook page, or Instagram account. When Springtime eventually arrives, we'll be sure to get some great outdoor photos of the bike.
