We have a guilty secret: As much as we love poring over the high-end builds, we also love checking out ‘regular’ bikes that have been discreetly fettled with smart upgrades.
From Tony Prust of @analogmotorcycles comes this modified BMW R nineT. As a finished bike ‘Rewind’ looks superb, but it’s still a practical daily rider.

A little caramel dessert after dinner. 1978 Yamaha SR500 named ‘Bruto’ from Chicago’s @analogmotorcycles. #dropmoto #streettracker #caferacer #caferacerporn #yamaha #sr500 #vintagemotorcycle #builtnotbought by dropmoto http://overboldmotor.co
When age caught up with Doug Wheeler, kickstarting his favorite old dirt bikes became impossible. So @analogmotorcycles took an electric-start Husqvarna 510 supermoto, and gave it a dash of vintage style.
The wheels have been swapped out for proper dirt bike sizes—a 21-inch front and an 18-inch rear from @warp9_racing. And there’s a custom dual-shock setup created with the help of @racetechinc.
Getting the right look for the bodywork was critical. So Tony roped in @craigrodsmith to help build a vintage-style aluminum fuel tank, and a matching set of fenders.
