Two very nice W650 from Japan

The first one was made by Brat Style from Tokyo. They told me that the tank was made from the original one that they shopped and made it thinner. Very Nice…

The second one was made by Ground’ Work from Imamachi Japan. I asked them about the tank, but unfortunately I did not get any answer so far.
Someone know what motorcycle tank it is? ^_^

Cafe racer Dreams - De Madrid al cielo -

I love Madrid. I had so much fun and crazy parties in the Spanish capital. I think the sentence I used the most in Madrid was "Ponme dos cubatas, por favor". El Cubata (short form for Cubalibre) is a long drink made with dark rum and coke.

Ok, but that’s not the topic here. Sorry, I got sidetracked… ^_^

The purpose here was to talk about another great builder from Madrid (Spain) Cafe Racer Dreams. In my opinion their bikes are some kind of urban tracker racer inspired by the work done in Japan by Heiwa, Brat Style, Gravel Crew and some others but on bikes with bigger engines.

They seem to follow one philosophy: less is more. I love that.

RAD will make you love Ducati

Radical Ducati shop in Madrid, Spain is already quite famous in the Ducati fans world.
I just wanted to add some pictures of their great works, because I am not crazy about Ducati but the racers made by this Madrileño team make me definitely love them.

Simplemente alucinantes.

My W650

Last year I got a W650 and I started to modify it.
I removed the headlight and the stays, both fenders and later the clocks too.
A dirt track style handlebar with Gran Turismo style grips replaced the original parts.

I find the old orange headlight in a swap; I got it because it has a nice letter A on the glass. I painted it in mat black and I fixed on top the aluminum letter "A" with wings. The headlight bracket I made it from a stainless pan handle. I love recycling... ^_^

I made a new back fender from a XS400 or XS250 front fender. I cut it, made a bracket and painted in mat black.
The license plate light is a small one with LEDs that I hided between the fender and my license plate bracket.

My home made nargile (shisha) taillight find a place on the fender.

The speedometer is a Daytona, and the pilot led bracket I made it from a piece of stainless and an old double wrench size 13.

Next step, the seat. For the moment I only made a shape in wood that I will use the make the fibreglass base.

Then the gas tank will be changed or maybe I’ll just paint the original one…

Work in progress...

xs tracker

These are another aluminum part that I did some years ago by hand for my XS gas tank.
One it is done but the second is in standby. I need to find time for it...
