HOTP: Greasy Kulture 89

Greasy Kulture issue 89 features Gary Royal on the cover riding his righteous Panhead which he built from a pile of choice parts, including an Indian Chief front end. It looks right at home on the streets of San Francisco, the city Gary calls home. [Photos: Mark F Kirkland]

Masa Sugihara, the genius behind Luck MC in Kyoto, Japan, built this astonishing Shovel chopper for a very special customer: Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. How do builds like this happen? He gives us the story. [Photos: Speedmilk]

You may have heard of Ya Seat Custom, who create chopper seats from their Bangkok workshop: here's the man behind the business, with his home built Triumph chopper. Building a custom bike in Thailand takes determination and resourcefulness. [Photos: Rookie Workwear Style]

This 1981 Harley FXS custom looks like it could have come from the factory... and that was Dylan Fricker's intention. He used some local bike-building talent in Sydney, Australia to help him achieve his vision. [Photos: Roger Chambers]

The Swedes have a long-held reputation in Europe for building authentic, reliable choppers and bob-jobs: check out Totte's '47 EL for proof. He's one of a few Sinners outside SoCal... and you don't get asked into the fold unless you really wrench and ride. [Photos: Andreas Johansson]

The Triumph T100GP was a legendary race engine, built after WWII out of surplus generator parts. Makoto – who runs Old Fun Garage in Sosa, Japan – has restored a Triton which is powered by one of these ultra-rare motors; we ask him for the story. [Photos and words: Akky and Mochi]

Andy Woolf from the UK grew up in a biking household: his dad ran a motorcycle garage. So while Andy may make his living crafting wood, he's no stranger to fabricating metal either. Check out his '67 slabside Harley chopper. [Photos: Joel Peet]

Rezi from Finland isn't a pro bike builder but he certainly builds more components on his choppers than most pros: from wheels to tanks, springer to frame, pretty much everything on this rad Scandinavian long chopped Shovel is homemade. [Photos: Ulf Forsberg]
