Another custom builder just popped up on our radar, it’s REDZ Motorcycle Company over in The Netherlands. Remember Bratstyle? Well REDZ builds custom bikes along those lines, based on the Yamaha SR400/SR500/TW200, the Kawasaki W400/W650 and other small displacement Japanese bikes. They also offer all of the parts you might need to put one of these together yourself.
Their new catalog is available for download and it is really cool, seats, risers, fenders, gauges, lights, pipes, just about anything you might need to do it yourself, either all at once or a little at a time.
I’m really liking this style of Japanese custom, it’s different from the standard fare you see everywhere. If you’re over in Europe and thinking about building a bike like this, REDZ should be on your list, nice looking bikes and parts. Actually, they ship worldwide, so you can order from anywhere and with the dollar being very strong right now, it buys a lot. Check ’em out.
UPDATE: There seems to be a question about similarities between REDZ motorcycles and those from Easyriders in Japan, I received another question today. It appears that REDZ builds motorcycles in the style of those from Japan using parts from Easyriders and other companies in Japan. The photos used in their catalog and shown here are marked in their catalog as copyright by Nitroheads which is the trademark name for the whole series of parts from Easyriders, they are used for illustrative purposes and used with permission. Unless I hear otherwise, that should answer the questions some seem to have.
