KTM Street tracker by Engineered to Slide



We've been following the evolution of Nigel Petrie's 2008 KTM 250 EXC-F for years now. Petrie, an Ozzie auto drifter and two wheel enthusiast, has taken this bike from an enduro, to Supermoto, to cafe racer, and now to the pretty slick little tracker you see here today.

Ducati 860 Cafe Racer by Bryan Heidt


Bryan Heidt is no stranger to the custom world - he's metal fabricator with a background in Industrial Design - and works with Bryan Fuller at Fuller Hot Rods. His beautiful custom 1975 Ducati 860 square case named Cavallo Nero (Italian for 'dark horse') was actually Fuller's bike but with no immediate plans for it and a barrage of impending projects coming in, the bike sat in the shop taunting Heidt. When Bryan shared his story with us, it became abundantly clear that a lot of blood, sweat and late nights went into this build and he certainly had a lot to say about the work he put in. In cases like that, why not let the builder himself tell you the story as it is?
