Jeff Palhegyi's Yamaha Yard Built XSR900

The world of motorcycles could be considered as a ride down an unknown road while constantly looking over one’s shoulder, usually to the pastime’s colorful past. Case in point, Yamaha’s adoption of the ‘Yard Built’ phrase.

A well-known motorcycle name of the past is stepping up to help a much-needed cause in the present as Orange County Choppers (OCC) rides in to help victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Motorcycle rallies are supposed to be about, well, motorcycles. The Buffalo Chip knows this and have lined up seven free bike shows for attendees to take in at this year’s Sturgis Rally.

A remarkable custom bike to be featured at one of Europe’s leading events is already capturing the imagination of motorcycle enthusiasts worldwide.

The crowning of the ‘King of the Builders’ for the 8th annual J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Bike show marked achievements of hard work and the final stop for the Progressive International Motorcycle Show.

As they promised earlier this week, Victory Motorcycles used the Progressive International Motorcycle Show (IMS) at the Javits Center in New York to announce the winners of its ‘Operation Octane’ dealer build contest.

The Fourth Annual American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo) was many things, but as a biker event it featured a custom bike show with work from the continent’s most talented builders.

A new take on what is quickly becoming a customizable classic will be seen later this week when two female bike builders add their vision to BMW’s R nineT.

The legendary rally in Sturgis may be over, the efforts to bring equally historic motorcycles to its exhibits is a year-round effort by the town’s two-wheeled museum.

Since breaking onto the custom motorcycle scene as a noted bike builder in 2004, Roland Sands has put his unique brand on a range of rides, apparel and accessories. This Sands seal of approval will now appear on a line of oil and lubricants.
