  • Triumph Salt Racer - The Teardown

  • It was a gloomy rainy night when the Triumph rolled into the Supacustom / Skrunkwerks workshop, Cliff from Triumph Australia had sourced us a great donor bike and was kind enough to deliver it and help us start tearing the bike apart. With plenty of beer and pizza on board we got stuck right into[...]
  • 2013 NSW Twinshock Trials Championships

  •   The 2013 NSW Twinshock Trials Championships were held last weekend in Denman, NSW. I live in Melbourne and Denman is at least a 12 hours drive away, despite this we decided that it was an event not to be missed. The Denman Motorcycle Club is about the only Trials club in Australia that has[...]
  • 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.

  • Fxyomatosis

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 [...]
  • Feature Bike: Osborne Triumph
