Chicara Nagata

I stumbled across an image of one of these machines a while back but was unable to find the source or the builder of this machine. I finally tracked it down to being a gentleman by the name of Chicara …A Japanese native from Kyusyu Island, Chicara doesn't use any fancy machines to build these works of art, but simple hand tools.

I stumbled across an image of one of these machines a while back but was unable to find the source or the builder of this machine. I finally tracked it down to being a gentleman by the name of Chicara Nagata.

A Japanese native from Kyusyu Island, Chicara doesn't use any fancy machines to build these works of art, but simple hand tools. He estimate it takes anywhere between 5000 - 7000 hours for each build, that's 0.8 of a year if you worked full time 24 hours a day.

All his designs are built from what he conceptualises in his head, no CAD models or sketches are created. With the first step being choosing the type of engine to base his build around, he then continues to fabricate each piece as he goes along.

As you can see the results are astonishing, with most of the completed masterpieces being used as decorative pieces in the owner's home.

Fender and Triumph Get it On

BENNY LSG

I know this bike has been around for a while but there's nothing I love more than a good collaboration, Lennon McCartney did it, Hanna-Barberra teamed up, The Australian and New Zealand Army Corps joined forces, Bonnie and Clyde did …So when Fender and Triumph decided to get together this was the result. Built by the late Christian Clayton of , it's based around a 2009 Triumph Thruxton.

Barn Finds

BENNY LSG

I've always liked the idea of a barn find. Taking a trip into the country and stumbling across a shed full of vintage motorcycles.
