  • Oil Stained Brain 2014

  • To say that 2014 has flown by would be an understatement, it seems like only a few months ago I was admiring the 2013 edition of the Oil Stained Brain show but really that was a year ago... The 2014 edition of the show was held at the Kustom Kommune, as always Jimmy and Richie put on a great eve[...]
  • BSA A65 Project Bike - Part 1

  •   This BSA is the latest bike to roll into the Supacustom workshop. Its a 1971 BSA Firebird, this bike was one of the last models released by BSA before the brands eventual demise in 1973.

  • A day in LA

  • So I have spent the past couple of weeks in the US on business, today was the final day of my trip. I found myself with 8 hours to kill in LA while waiting for my flight back to Australia. I decided to rent a car and go visit a couple of bike shops...the day started out well when I got an upgrade at[...]
  • Oil Stained Brain

They all look awesome, I love the low and long look that it gives the bikes but I'm not sure if I could actually live with one. The Garage Company guys have this style dialled but I like the Mooneyes bike too.   [...]
  • Australian Motorcycle Expo 2010

  • The Australian Motorcycle Expo is in Melbourne this weekend and for the first time I have entered a bike in the Show n Shine competition. The Triumph is not your usual show n shine type of bike but a few months ago I met Cliff who organises the competition each year and he managed to convince me to [...]
  • Event: Mods vs Rockers

  • The Mods vs Rockers run is put on in Melbourne each year by the 59 Club and the Melbourne Crusaders. It's a great day out that starts with a gathering at the Brighton Baths followed by a group ride to Kustom Lane gallery in Hawthorn. This years event supported OzChild, a really worthy cause. Last y[...]
  • Feature Bike: Osborne Triumph

  • . I thought it'd only be right to cover my own bike as the first "featured ride" here on supacustom.com. After many years of dreaming about owning a cool cafe racer I recently made that dream a reality. . THE PLAN: I guess I have my father to blame for many of the influences that have shaped thi[...]
