Fern Chacha Touring Bike

Fern is a small touring bicycle and component manufacturer based in Berlin - Germany. It was founded by two traveling cyclists / design graduates – Flo and Phillip – who after thousands of miles on the road together wanted to put their touring experience into making their own practical and beautiful bikes for fellow travelers. Fern was born out of friendship, a shared lust for adventure, and curiosity. Their latest build named "Chacha” is a collaboration with Gramm Tourpacking (a new brand of bikepacking gear). Built for hard desert crossings, the sleek ride is a hybrid of a long-distance cycling bike and a mountain bike. Available with ultralight 26inch wheels, the bike is built to order and customized with components and accessories according to customer requirements.

BMW B-1 | BY VDB MOTO

VDB Moto are not new to the custom motorbike scene, but this spectacular build is their first BMW conversion. B-1 is based on a mono lever 1986 R80RT, and when VDB got their hands on the bike, it was in pretty rough conditions. The guys decided to retain the distressed and rugged look of the engine to make a contrast with the new parts and paint.
