GLASGOW KISS

GLASGOW KISS


By Robbie Kerr
I was born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland. I built my first complete motorcycle, a 1973 Norton, at the age of 16. At that time I was also starting my mechanical engineering apprenticeship at Rolls Royce Ltd. I continued to build motorcycles as a hobby until I opened my first business in 1990. Many of my creations back then went on to win custom shows all over the United Kingdom and Europe. I immigrated to Canada in 2000 bringing along my very own custom “Millennium Bobber”. That bike continued to win custom shows all over British Columbia. Eventually I settled in Nelson, BC where I founded Kootenay Motorcycle Art, a small business dedicated to producing unique motorcycles and motorcycle parts. What you see here gracing the pages of Revolution is my most recently handiwork which I call “Glasgow Kiss”. It has competed in the 2010 World Championships and has won prizes at several bike shows in Canada and the US.

TOXIC

TOXIC


By Mike O’Brien
The crew at Poorboys Customs has been fortunate enough to work on some pretty head-turning projects over the past five years and the Toxic chopper is no exception. Combining the bike building talents of Neil Rollingson and the custom airbrush as well as design talents of Mike O’Brien, the Toxic chopper was born.

The initial response to this project has been excellent. With the entire Poorboys team working together the bike was built, painted and shipped to Calgary for the Kane’s Harley-Davidson bike show at the 2010 World of Wheels last February where it took the “best in class” award for North American custom built bikes. One of the most talked about features of the Toxic chopper is the custom airbrushed green lethal liquid and skulls that were expertly applied by Mike O’Brien aka “Mob” of Mob Air Custom Airbrush.

Redneck Bike

Redneck Bike


By Michel Corbeil
With this latest Zeel Design achievement for Mr. Renaud Smith a passionate fan of powerful motorcycles, we demonstrate a very interesting blend between sport and custom bikes. Renaud came to see Zeel Design with a project he had very well imagined and perceived. Renaud wanted to create a chopper styled motorcycle that incorporated the performance of a time tested Buell.

We started with an original 1998 S1 Buell Lightning, a bike that has absolutely no resemblance to a chopper whatsoever. With the use of a Redneck Engineering rigid chassis we completely transformed the look of the original. The rear fender, fuel and oil tanks are also from Redneck Engineering. We kept the original 1200cc V-Twin engine but the original Buell’s rear wheel has been modified to accommodate a 240 mm tire. The front fork has been repainted; however we added custom risers to the stock triple trees. We kept the stock handlebar controls as well.

LA RATA

LA RATA


By Kevin Rosenthall
Most Torontonians know well the Hide House’s famous slogan “It’s worth the drive to Acton.” It is those words I wondered as I drove to meet “La Rata”. I’m normally just the trigger monkey here. I like to stare at pretty things, am always stoked to see functional sculpture up close, and love capturing images to share with others, thus the reason I found myself rushing to Acton, Ontario, with a photo shoot deadline looming.

Deep in the woods lies Mena Custom Cycle on I dare say the longest rural road name you’ll ever see: Nassagaweya-Esquesing Townline. Say that five times quickly. Inside I found probably the nicest, most humble individual you’ll meet, Mr. Julio Mena and also his jovial compatriot Daniel Toscano, always with a joke and smile at the ready. When I arrived, Julio was putting the finishing touches on “La Rata”, in a scene reminiscent of the television build off archetype – the eleventh hour rush to deadline.
