The team at Bottpower have finished the incredible XR-1 Buell project that they have been working on for a while now. I posted some pictures of this build back in 2011 along with some concept sketches of what the bike might have looked like when it was finished. All to often the finished product never looks quite a wild as the concept sketched but in this case its the opposite the finsihed bike looks even better. If you own a Buell and want something like this then you should keep an eye on the Bottpower blog – soon they will be selling kits to convert your stock Buell into the XR-1.

I stumbled across a few pictures of this nice W650 tracker on Flickr, there was a link back to an older blog that had some more details on the build. I really like this bike, the green tank looks fantastic! The W650 sure does lend itself well to this type of conversion.
A great video telling the story behind the Streetmaster Triumph. This video is the second cool piece of work to come from Champions Moto – the first being the Mule video, can we expect a video covering the Brighton Cafe Racer and the So-Cal Miler soon as well? Lets hope so…
I have posted about this bikes a few times already, I’ve been pretty keen to see the final result…and I can’t say that I am disappointed. It looks damn nice, not sure if I’m sold on the paint scheme but either way its still a sweet bike. Roland Sands is one lucky guy to get the opportunity to build custom Desmosedici’s… Check his blog for heaps more pictures
Roland Sands seems to be making good progress with the Desmosedici Street Tracker build. The latest photo’s posted on the RSD blog show the creation of a custon single sided swingarm. The swing arm itself looks pretty nice but I am most jealous of the jig / fixture system that RSD have at their disposal – what an awesome set up! I want one…
I stumbled across streetracker blog recently and it has quickly become one of my favourite blogs to read, well there is no reading as its all pictures but boy are they great pictures – pages and pages of them. If you haven’t checked it out go and do it now!
Wow this would have to be one of the best looking street tracker builds i’ve seen, whats even better is that it’s built around a Hinckley Bonnie motor – another favourite of mine. It seems to be a collaboration between the So-Cal Speed Shop and Streetmaster, I’m guessing that Mule motorcycles have had something to do with this build as well. There is a heap more details and pictures of this bike on HFL and Bike Exif.

So what do you do if you happen to own not one, not two but three Ducati Desmosedici’s? You hand one of them over to RSD for a street tracker conversion and keep the no longer required factory parts as spares for your other two bikes. Sounds like an awesome plan to me! RSD is no stranger to high end builds, the KRV5 springs to mind – a custom boardtracker built around a Kenny Roberts motogp engine. I expect this build will be equally awesome and can’t wait to see the finished result.
