California Custom: 1968 Dodge Polara By Richard Zocchi

California Custom: 1968 Dodge Polara By Richard Zocchi Nothing's better than a custom lowrider with a chopped roof and huge fins! The 1968 Dodge Polara coupe was an amazingly stylish car for its day with its inset headlights, sculpted wheel openings and a crazy long body crease just over the rear wheels. But this fully customized Polara takes things to the next level accentuating the car's natural lines and giving it some California attitude. If you're in the market for a proven California custom, then check out this unique 1968 Dodge Polara being auctioned off this weekend by GAA Classic Cars.

Mini-bikes have swelled in popularity in recent years. The light weight and affordability of the models make them perfect for beginners and Millennials without a lot of coin to spend. With the battle between Kawasaki’s Z125 and the Honda Grom just heating up, the prevalence of sub-250cc motorcycles only seems to have increased with each riding season.

In places like Thailand, where small-displacement bikes reign supreme, custom shops have specifically catered to the segment for years. One such shop is K-Speed of Bangkok.

K-Speed is best known for its recent Super Cub build. In conjunction with the model’s release, Yamaha Thailand commissioned the garage to transform a new XSR155 into something worthy of their past efforts.

Restored 1947 Packard Custom Super Clipper Defines Elegance

Restored 1947 Packard Custom Super Clipper Defines Elegance Get ready to win awards in this beauty! Just about all cars from the '40s and early '50s had a certain timeless beauty to them, but there is something a little more special about Packards from this era. Take this fully restored 1947 Packard Custom Super Clipper for example, which looks and drives like new and is currently listed for sale by the Classic Car Club of America for just $48,000. This car has been meticulously restored with everything from the typical new paint, chrome and interior to mechanical elements like wiring, ignition and brakes to make sure this car drives as good as it looks.

Getting down on that dumpster sift, Just to be like, “ Hipster , you ain’t up on this .” And I can’t even go out and grab some food Without a Kafka novel and an attitude. But the big difference between me and you, Is that I was doing this back before it was cool!

Their latest project is the 2019 Yamaha XSR 155 Trail Breaker, which was commissioned by Yamaha Thailand to showcase the brand’s new model. It features a custom flat subframe with an integrated luggage rack, a beefy crash cage for the engine, and a military-inspired bash guard.

Based on the MT-15, the XSR155 joined Yamaha’s Sport Heritage family and shared the neo-retro styling of the XSR700 and XSR900. While the bigger XSRs were both absent from Yamaha’s 2020 lineup announcement, the company already planned to restrict the release of the baby XSR to Thailand.

For this build, Yamaha only afforded K-Speed 30 days to customize the XSR155, so the team didn’t have any time to waste. They started by replacing the stock subframe with a custom unit, complete with integrated luggage racks.

Labeled the Trail Breaker, K-Speed took the name quite literally and outfitted the rig with a beefy skid plate and rugged crash cage. The additional fortification shielded the 155cc single, forks, and frame from potential off-road damage. Hipsters would rejoice as the hefty crash bars also helped to obscure the most modern part of the XSR—the SOHC engine.

Next, K-Speed added a set of tracker bars with minimized hand switches and retro-styled grips. To further enhance the little XSR’s dirt capabilities, they plopped dual-sport tires onto a set of spoked aluminum rims and exchanged the factory pegs with MX-style platforms.

You might call them hipster motorcycles, but some manufacturers have recognized the calling for motorcycles to return to their roots. It's not always about

With the XSR ready to rip off-road, the custom shop gutted the stock lighting and affixed a set of circular LED headlights and auxiliary spotlights to the crash bars. Of course, nestled between the two headlights, a leather-wrapped flask completed the front end—presumably containing Suntory Whisky for those ironical Millennials.

To soak up the gnarly terrain, K-Speed upgraded the rear suspension to a YSS monoshock. Though, we hope the added travel compensates for the pancake-thin leather saddle.

A custom one-into-two exhaust also threaded through the frame and exited at the tail section, lifting the pipes out of danger. The budget stock calipers were swapped for Brembo units to provide superior stopping power and brake feel in loose conditions.

The team decided to stick with the stock tank to retain the look of the XSR but they coated it in a gray primer with a distressed finish. The same treatment was applied to the crash cage and skid plate. K-Speed’s paint partner Artroom24 topped off the tank with a vintage script Yamaha logo—matching any Hipster’s expansive Goodwill t-shirt collection.

The Trail Breaker may be more style than substance, but you couldn’t deny that K-Speed knows its audience and builds beautiful bikes, even if it’s a mini.
