Hang in there Steve, we’ll help you out! Introducing myself as one of the guest bloggers

Ha, my moment of fame! It’s a great honor for me to be a guest blogger for MPOTD. So who am I? Well, I am still trying to find that out, but I’ll share some facts; the name is Ton Stam, 38 years old, and I live in the beautiful Netherlands. I have built a couple of custom bikes, ranging from streetfighters to scramblers. Nowadays I have a weakness for customized oldies, but I still LOVE modern bikes that have been changed into something more personal.

Now for some hardware, this is my home-built Wrenchmonkees-inspired (can you tell 🙂 ) Z750 Twin, which I sold this summer to make room for some new projects. Was (and still is hopefully) a blast to ride! The action pics were taken by Michiel de Molenaar of, thanks again Michiel!

Looking forward to share loads of nice rides, so keep ‘m coming!!

Another victim of the Spam POS filter!

Thanks for your consideration

A “Brat” bike I don’t hate…

I’m on the record I think as NOT being a big fan of “Brat” styled bikes. I won’t get in to ALL the reasons (OK just a few – Flavor of the week styling exercise, Corker tires and no seat to speak of? seriously? gotta suck to ride) But I’m giving this one a pass because I think it’s more scrambler than brat and I bet it’d actually be a fairly fun smooth gravel rode ride. The parallel twin Kawi 750’s 400 don’t exactly have a stellar reputation but I do like the look.

Another Trick Scrambler Build! Maybe the coolest CM250 Honda on the planet!

Talk about getting the most out of a transformation! Gregory Moore sends in more proof that you don’t need tens of thousands of dollars to build a cool custom bike.

Here is a 1982 Honda CM250c (the predecessor to the Rebel). I bought this for my lady to rip around but we live in the woods of southern NH where there’s lots of dirt roads & torn up tarmac so I wanted it to be a little scrambler not a saggy cruiser(not meant to be of offense to rebel owners). This is what I came up with, hope you like it!

(And be sure to check out his build thread:)

Oh yeah… this is what he started with..
