THE SMOKED OLIVE

Was the time to build something with a Dominator… practically almost any builder used one as donor sometime… now was our round, this Honda NX650 was modified on a dirt style but taking in acount it should be usable offroad because its owner is a true adventurer… it already passed its first test after runnig a whole week in a no paved roads island in the Danube river between Romania and Bulgaria.

CABALLO DE HIERRO

Our most ambitious project until this moment, hot to take a best selling commuting bike and transform it onto a performance endurance racer…. lot to tell about this 2001 Suzuki SV650S… we love this bike… is the true expression of both of us Mihaela and myself… ask for more if you want to know, the bike was frevealed at the Bike Shed London 2019, also featured as preferate of the show by Bike Magazine UK, and will participate at the races at Glemseck 101 and Wildays Italy.

 

DEJAVU

Or the French Connection, this bike was built for a friend in Paris, the first gen of the Suzuki GSX750 was a pretty powerful bike, this unit was from 1982 and has been fully rebuilt and modified into a classic racer shape, with a considerable weight lost now is also faster and the mods on suspension and frame have made it better rideable. Shown also at the Bike Shed Show in 2019.

UGLY DUCK

Our Cafe Racer interpretation over a Honda XBR500… light, slim, minimalist and stylish… what else?

BROKEN WING

Our second bike at the Bike Shed London Show in 2018, could we use a Honda GL500 Interstate for building a “board tracker” inspired speed machine?… yes we could… hundreds of hours on this one for getting what we wanted, a very fast and stable bike with the old board trackers shape… yes it’s not so comfortable out of the track but… who cares? It was also racing at Wildays Italy 2018 and Glemseck 101 2018!!

LILITH

Mihaela, the Bandisca’s bosswoman, wanted a lightweight bike for the city, and designed this fancy Suzuki GN125 aka “Lilith”, a small demon with a lot of performance shit on that allows it to reach over 120 km/h without too much effort, and with an unique cafe racer shape, small, fast and light, perfect for our bosswoman scarying some people out there.

RAT TRACKER

A very low cost project with a good result, using junking parts we built this Honda FX650 for a friend, with the smell of the mythic Elsinore on, a funny daily use bike, perfect for the city and also for some weekend offroad tracks.

ANGEL

Our first bike featured at The Bike Shed London Show in 2017, a not ordinary interpretation over a 1976 Yamaha SR500, not a typical one, we tryed to get a vintage speed machine, for that we radically modified the original bike adding a vintage racer shape and tuning up the engine all we could…. the result…. you can like it or you can hate it but it was on the cover page of Motorcycle News after the show…

SARA’S DREAM

Also our little Lady wanted a custom bike so we built this small “kids version” scrambler using a Yamaha PW50 engine!!

BIG BULL

The essence of a true muscle bike but with the touch of a cafe racer, this Suzuki GSX1400 was modified for matching a light shape without renounce to the features of the original Muscle Bike. The handcrafted tail and side pannels, the custom headlight and Koso dashboard and the Yoshimura exhaust system provide it the proper touch!

 

TRI Flat Tracker

Our first race bike, the TRI Flat Tracker is a project built in collaboration with our Greek friends of The Real Intellectuals and Caferacercult.gr, is a 100% handcrafted flat tracker bike using a Honda CB400 powerplant with a thinny fine line and a full of performance elements, this bike will be used along the 2017 by Niko from The Real Intellectuals for racing at Dirt Quake and other flat tracker european events so you will see more about it for sure, the bike was public revealed at The Rotten Race 2016 in Athens.

This bike marked a milestone in our timeline and is the proof that we can build also fine racing shit, haha!! We thank so much to our Greek friends for trusting us for building this amazing iron!

Offender

Offender is a scoundrel muscle tracker bike, was created inspired on the owner personality and is a pretty nice combination between simplicity and performance, this bike is based in a 1982 Kawasaki KZ750H with the mitic 4 in line GPz powerplant that makes it to be a powerful crazy tracker that for sure will kick some Asses by the streets of Athens where it lives now!!

Furiosa

Furiosa because this bike was inspired on Mad Max culture, this Honda VF750C Magna is the proof you can build a really cool bike using a powercruiser like base, or better said… the proof you can kill a fucking powercruiser and reborn a cool bike from its ashes!! The V4 powerplant gives it a plus of power and runs as hell, is the perfect bike for scaring bloodyplastics on the road !!

Anima

Anima is the spirit that is paying for his sins, but also is the perfect reflection of the imperfect human condition, we put that name to this bike because it is organic as humanlife, this Suzuki DR600 has been radically transformed into a light thinny punk bike, all on it is minimal and brute seeking the expresion of the natural human essence that invites us to go on and ride it until the end. This punk bike has no more than 110 kgs and his 600cc engine rise it to the unbeliebable but don’t worry… “Dum Anima Est Spes Est”.

Saudade

Saudade is a portugese word that means “missing something”, we named this bike like that because we wanted her owner missing it when not riding it…

This Kawasaki KZ440 was given by a friend because he was moving and couldn´t take care of it, we decided to put the project on auction and inmediatly our friend Tibi Militaru bidded it, he want to give the bike to his wife and the only condition was… “please take in account that my wife has 1,50m height and 45kg wheight”, with that premise we built this tracker, is so light and fast, as always we overhauled the powerplant and added some mods to it, the paintwork has been done by our friend an collaborator CZ Customs.

The Killer

Once upon a time was a BMW R80RT that served lot of years to the Romanian Traffic Police, now we have give it a new life, after such a lot of years serving the law we decided to convert it into an infractor, a true killer, the perfect machine for ride through the city and kill some fucking hipsters or outside the city and kill some chopper riders.

Padre

The first bike for our dear wrenchman Gabi, this Honda CB750 SevenFifty was built with a lot of passion and nowadays is an insane Modern Cafe Racer, fast and light, exciting the eyes of those that pass beside it.

Cardio

This Honda CB400N was transformed in a fast speed machine, a Cafe Racer?…. I don’t think so, but somepeople that says… true is that is a completly modified iron, frame, wheels, suspension, engine… everything was modified for getting a fucking crazy speed machine that starts only kicking.

La Bastarda

We found this Suzuki GSX400T in a really demential condition, frame was attacked by rust, engine needed full overhaul… but we decided to give it a new life, it was the first bike we built and we love it so much, we rebuilt all the frame bed, overhauled the engine and transform it in a brand new rat brat machine.
