Esquire Network revealed its new competition series, Wrench Against the Machine, will premiere Tuesday, Nov. 15
Some of the most prestigious bike builders in the country put their reputations on the line in the ultimate test of creativity and craftsmanship to impress head judge, Roland Sands, founder of motorcycle and apparel company Roland Sands Design. Rounding out the panel is Michael Woolaway, U.S. director of motorcycle design for Deus Ex Machina and Alan Stulberg, co-founder and chief designer of Revival Cycles and the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show.
The 72 hours of round-the-clock wrenching will take viewers deeper into the teamwork, the problem solving, and the creativity of the process that brings these bikes to life. Every episode come with its own unique batch of teams and building challenges, as fabricators are tasked with building café racers, choppers, bobbers and beyond. In the end, the expert judges will test and evaluate the custom rides, crowning the winning team with the coveted “wrench” and the losing team’s bike.
Love this open face helmet with the golden design, which was inspired by the evocative Maya writing.
With around 817 Euro for the painting job plus another 400-500 Euro for the helmet you need some little cash for this unique artwork. But, it’s unique and very special. Please read what the guys from “unexpected-custom” have to say about this special.
The ideographs and Mayan symbols are expertly mixed to the sinuous lines of the flame: icon of contemporary biker world, reinterpreted with this unusual combination that creates a refined and elegant aesthetic short circuit. Made with airbrushed special colors for glass on a complete metal lamination. The artistic work of this custom helmet is particularly bright and elegant through the use of our special colors for glass that, airbrushed on the in gold leaf surface, offer a rich range of bronze colors and shades. The realization of the middle lettering is obtained with a airbrushed marbled texture that enriches the customization of this design.

Recent work on the rebuild of my cafe racer, Honda CB750 RC04. The photorealistic layouts above show the bike with a modified upside-down fork, new tank design and new shock absorbers. To bring the fron down and give the entire build a more compact look I’m looking into the race bike front parts like the upside-down fork and brake system. I’m not sure yet what design I will go with at the end. It’s still under construction and an ongoing design process. With the change of the front part, different other modifications, will be needed. Like the entire electronic system, which is original build on top of the handlebar/fork bridge but has to be moved back under the seat or tank.
Multiple adjustment, improved control, refinement and awesome looks make K-Tech Razor shocks a leap beyond standard equipment.
The Razor range of shock absorbers are available in two styles, giving up to 4 way adjustability and multiple length options allowing you to customise your motorcycle for looks and riding style.

So if you want to go even more classic and spend a little bit more money, this is another nice and stylish speedometer, which delivers all needed information straight ahead. This digital multi-purpose instrument comes in a black or silver classic round casing. The black one is technically identical to the motoscope classic (white dial with black indicator), but brandishes a black dial and a white indicator. The design resembles old Smiths brand instruments. I must admit that I would love to get one. Maybe next season when the new wiring harness is installed and everything is set up for such advanced technology.
Still for me one of the best CB 750 custom builds I’ve seen. A fantastic balanced machine within this unfinished RAW look.
“Son, once you get those training wheels off,” Mark said, “I’ll buy you your first motorcycle.”
A day later, Haven could ride his first bicycle without training wheels. Soon, he was on a motorcycle…at three years old. “I just thought it was so cool that I could go so fast, and everything was a blur, and I got to do it myself,” Haven says. “I was really free, I think I always held on to that.”
All of the signs present in a typical workshop are here: work benches, welding supplies, spare parts, but the warehouse Mark and Haven live in has been the focal point of their relationship and projects. Now a teenager, Haven has been turning heads with his first few custom motorcycles—that he’s made all by himself.
The Bonesheart by deBolex. One of the best and very outstanding custom CB750 builds out there.
The Bonesheart Specials are a pair of identical customs produced for the Swedish App developer behind aGreatday.tv and the upcoming Bonesheart app. With influences from our MK3 and MK5 these CB750F2N based customs are our most ambitious to date.
Those bikes are just perfect in every detail. Everything is so well selected and balanced. deBolex is well known for their great custom builds and have some amazing bikes within their portfolio. But those both – for me – by far the best.
