it roCkS! CB750 Gravedigger Osvaldo Coutinho and Alexandre Santos are the guys behind it roCkS!bikes, based in Oporto in Portugal. They are both engineers and self-confessed motorcycle addicts. This CB750 is a little different from the usual CeeBee customs out there as it’s based on a 1992 bike, rather than the usual 1970s donors that feature on most of our pages. Although more modern machines have more power, better chassis parts and are likely to be more reliable, they have a lot more ugliness to hide and take a lot more work to turn into something desirable, and something that captures the spirit of the seventies that most of us aspire to. This bike was built as a showcase for it roCkS!

Red Baron Triumph Bonneville Cafe Racer Earlier this year I ran a story on the "Big Chill", an '08 Triumph Bonneville Cafe Racer built by custom workshop Mean Machines. This latest Hinckley Bonneville from the Sydney based outfit which is aptly named the "Red Baron", is essentially the same build spec as the Big Chill with one major difference, it has much bigger balls. Mean Machines were obviously happy with how the Big Chill Bonnie turned out. The Red Baron has identical handling tweaks, the same lighting set up, the same fibreglass bodywork and the same rear foot pegs.
