HOTP: Greasy Kulture Issue 86

We bring you this peachy sixties-style '56 Panhead chopper from Australia's Gold Coast on the cover of new issue 86. Daniel Crean built this bike from the seized remains of a 1970s survivor... and turned it into a reliable mile-muncher. [Photos by Luke Greer and Sami Lorking-Tanner]
Brandon Wurz created his shop Rawhide Cycles on the back of his expertise building vintage Hondas – but this stunning 88 inch stroker Shovel chopper (his personal ride) is proof, as if it's needed, that he has a talent for putting H-Ds together, too. [Photos: Mark F. Kirkland]
It's pretty cool that this righteous 1950 Harley Pan-Shovel was built right in the heart of Milwaukee; and Steven Schwoegler had impeccable inspiration for the bike's stance too, from a famous club bike you might recognise... [Photos: Jerimiah Smith]
Jimbob Sinclair's '70s-inspired Shovelhead custom from Sydney, Australia, has already won a couple of awards on its first public outing. And when you hear he's creating bikes for the new Mad Max movie, perhaps it's not surprising... [Photos: Roger Chambers]
An Indian Chief chopper? You don't see those on the road every day! We found Takeshi's '47 – which he built from boxes of parts – on the crazy streets of Tokyo... I mean, where else? [Photos: Suntee/Mochi]
We visited a new custom bike show in Sydney to see what the builders are up to down under: the Still Lovin' Chopper Show is definitely the start of something good. [Photos: Roger Chambers]
Our friend Yorg from Athens is a supremely gifted tattooist and builds suitably tasteful, understated bikes – and this '68 FL is no exception. Who knew a swing arm genny Shovel could look this good? 
Fumiya, lover of all things old and soulful, decided he wanted a blacked-out Knuck bob-job and went to Tokyo's master of perfect patina, Gak at HawgHolic, to discuss his dream motorcycle. He wasn't disappointed with the results! [Photos: Kentaro Yamada]
