  5. Pierre Terblanche’s Top 8 Designs

    Pierre Terblanche’s Top 8 Designs

    If you noticed the Hypertek electric motorcycle released at EICMA at the beginning of November, and it’s hard not to, you’ve probably heard the name Pierre Terblanche. 

    The Hyptertek is the product of a collaboration between Terblanche, seasoned designer of world-class motorcycles, and British carbon composite manufacturer Blackstone Tek (BST).

    It’s geometric styling, luminous green accents, and carbon components give the Hypertek a distinct concept look – and it is only a concept model, but one that would surely turn heads if it made it onto the street.

    If you’re not familiar with Terblanche’s work, you should be. The designer has been behind some of the most iconic motorcycle designs of the past few decades.

  10. MPW Track Bike: Part 3 – Rims & Calipers

    MPW Track Bike: Part 3 – Rims & Calipers

    Time flies! Especially when you’re trying to manage an online parts business as well as get a track bike sorted out! Since our last post on the track bike, we have had the rims powder coated and the fairing painted. We called in a favour from Sean’s friend for the paint job. Apparently my initial designs were far too adventurous, so we’ve ended up with something a bit more simple that we will customise with vinyl decals later… But first, rims!
