  • BSA A65 Project Bike – Part 2

  • The BSA project has been sitting patiently on the bench for a few months now, I stripped it down and have spent many hours staring at it since. I had a whole heap of different ideas for this bike but it has really taken some time to settle on a direction that I am happy with. This project is extra s[...]
  • Supacustom Bicycle #1 - Part 1

  •   The latest project underway at supacustom is a custom bicycle for my girlfriend Renee, this isn't the first bicycle frame that I have built but it will be the first to carry the "supacustom" brand. It seems lots of readers are curious to know more about what goes into building a bicycle fr[...]
  • Supacustom Frame Jig

  •   People who know me well are aware that I have a soft spot for bicycles as well as motorcycles, up until this point supacustom has been 100% moto but recently that has changed a little. Almost 6 years ago I built a bicycle frame, and to be honset that is where the addiction to customising b[...]
  • The Kustom Kommune

  •   Do you live in Melbourne Australia? Got a bike? Want to work on it yourself but have no tools, no garage, or just no idea what you are doing? The Kustom Kommune could be the answer. The guys behind Oil Stained Brain, the coolest custom motorcycle show in the country have put their heads to[...]
  • 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

  • The Oil Stained Brain show was a massive success, Richie and Jimmy did a sensational job in putting on one of the best custom bike events Australia has ever seen. The bikes ranged from cafe racers to crazy chops and everything in between. For me the show was really great as I was lucky enough to hav[...]
  • Fxyomatosis

  •   I recently stopped by Shifterbikes to grab a few bicycle parts from Dan, while I was there I bumped into Andy White from Fyxomatosis. Andy has a sweet studio space set up right alongside Dan at Shifterbikes, anyone who has a thing for bicycles would be happy to call this place heaven... An[...]
  • Inspiration #7

  • Here are a few nice cafe style bikes featuring rigid rear struts instead of suspension. 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[...]
