"Hardley" HD883 - One of the few Harleys we’ve ever touched, but this one has come in for the full treatment. With just over 450 miles on the clock, this one is to be stripped down and completely customized. The client has asked for cafe simplicity with clean lines.
"Bean" - Kawasaki W650 - This ‘like new’ little bike just came to us for the full custom treatment. The W650 is often called one of the”The Best British Twins not made in Britian”. We loved this bike the day it showed up and hope we only made it better.
"Beto" - Moto Guzzi Custom 850 - Our good friend Beto, an Italian with a taste for great bicycles and Italian motorcycles, commissioned this bike and it became an aspirational grudge for our team to make it as ridiculously complicated and subtle as we could. It handles and stops better than any vintage Guzzi we’ve ridden.
"Wright" - Moto Guzzi V7 Classic - This custom build started off as a totally stock plastic-covered V7 and we built what we thought was the “right” way to build a V7. Guzzi should have made it this way to begin with.
Moto Guzzi V50 This often-forgotten model in the Guzzi lineup has recently been brought back by Guzzi as the “V7 Classic”. This one will be made into a much more authentic vintage custom with clean lines and a MUCH lighter visual aesthetic than its predecessor.
Revival Shop Guzzi Le Mans I - The Moto Guzzis are piling up around here, but few are the coveted Le Mans I. We built this into a slimmed down custom on a budget back in 2012, but it’s now been turned into our vintage race bike. It did well its first time in competition at Barber and we’re expecting a great next season.
Brough Superior 1150 - Plans have been made and we’ll be preparing this 1933 ‘survivor’ to ride the 2014 Motorcycle Cannonball. (Sinless Cycles graciously lent us this great machine) Partnering with Paul D’Orleans (the Vintagent), we plan to ride it across the good ole’ USA in September, 2014.
Ducati 900SS SP J63 - Someone once REALLY loved this little SP and we have a plan to return it to a glory it never quite achieved.
Velocette Thruxton Cutaway - One of One, this beautiful piece of art was actually made by Velocette in the 1950’s to promote the Velocette Venom and Thruxton on the show circuit. We photographed it in our studio properly for the world to enjoy.
1980 Moto Morini - A simple tasteful custom facelift is about to take this rare little bird from good to sexy.
1950 Douglas 90 Plus racer - One of only a handful in existence, this little surviving time capsule has come to be ‘revived’ into a road-worthy machine again for the first time in 40 years.
Moto Guzzi Le Mans IV The 1980’s spat a whole ton of plastic and bodywork on an otherwise solid Tonti Le Mans this one was prime for a change. Though on a tight budget, we still intend to give it a new life.
1973 Ducati 750 Sport - This custom special was brought to us by a client who has owned it for years, but has always had visions of the original yellow Sport he saw in the ads of the 70’s. In a reversal, we’re taking this cafe and returning it to its factory spec.
1953 Vincent Rapide - Vincents were once referred to as “a solution in search of a problem.”, the Vincent was a bike built decades ahead of its time. We’ve taken this beautiful machine in to add some modern upgrades that will make it even more reliable.
1936 Douglas Endeavor - This extremely rare British beauty came to us cosmetically restored, but in need of a completely custom wiring harness. Unfortunately it’s turned into a much bigger project. Updates to follow.
Liz’s BMW R60 A long time friend of the shop, Liz, has asked us to bring back her very first bike. The theme is “perfect patina”.
Shrews’ Paul Smart - The modern interpretation by Ducati of a classic comes in for more custom refining.
BSA Goldstar - This little gem came to us from one of our favorite clients. It was purchased as an older restoration from 2005. It was never started and was brought in for checking over and a freshening up.
Norton VR880 - This famed Kenny Dreer Norton has come in for the full Alloy treatment from Evan Wilcox and several mechanical repairs/upgrades. The list is growing, but it’s shaping up to be a great project.
Panther M100 - A fantastic example of the pre-war beauties that Revival considers a favorite. This one is in for sorting and its long-stroke 600cc single displacement is not for the faint-of-heart.
Royal Enfield Interceptor - Another fantastic bike comes in for fettling and maintenance after a long sit. This is NOT your father’s Royal Enfield single……this one snarls!
1972 Indian Bambino 50 - This is the biggest little project we’ve ever taken on. Although it is the usual big-displacement racer, it’s riddled with a family history and nostalgic attachment. We’re proud to be trusted with rehabbing this little guy.
Vik’s Suzuki GS450 A great client and friend of the shop asked for us to take this little piece of local Austin history and turn it into a tasteful budget custom. It’s become a shop favorite.
