FRIDAY, 4 MAY 2012


WideOpenMoto isn’t really about ‘custom bikes’ in the "flat-seat-and-pipewrap sense"; we leave that stuff to the big boys like BikeEXIF. We prefer to uncover the pants-shittingly gorgeous classics, specials and exotic machines which don't often get massive exposure on da internetz. 

However I saw this newly completed bike while over at the B.R Moto Officina in Bologna, 

Italy and liked it a lot. It’s the owner Matteo’s very own Kawasaki KZ400 which has seemingly evolved

 around the concept of "packing as much fun as possible into a Japanese twin"

 and with springtime coming up I can’t think of any better way to enjoy the newly defrosted outdoors (on road and off), than with this bike. It also offers a complete contrast to Matteo's other bike- the gorgeous ex-military Triumph bobber we featured a while back- check that out too- I guarantee you'll like it.


B.R Moto often uses the Kawasaki twin as its canvas- the 400cc version providing

 the foundation for this bike.The frame has been gently cleaned up and

 de-cluttered before powdercoating.

 The tank has been stripped and hand painted with only the basic-est of stripes 

and the phrase 'The Bolo Shit'!

Wheels were recently upgraded with Borrani rims front and rear,

 a classic Metzeler on the back and a fat Heidenau enduro-spec 

on the front (Heidenauis well worth a look for all your classic tread-pattern needs). 

 Mufflers are B.R Moto made items which sound fantastic- a deep bark which makes 

the engine capacity sound far larger than it is.


Many parts including engine covers and rear brake 

drum have been fabricated from solid pieces of a special alloy known in 

cycling circles as ‘Drillium’ to reduce weight and increase rad-ness.
