Commissioned by the worlds best 'go fast, turn left' magazine, we wanted to create a stripped down flat track inspired bike with a bit of 60's custom bling.

Based on our classic Desert Racer, this bike is a one off, can't be bought, can only be won at the 2016 crazy fest that is Dirtquake. Check the Journal for details.

A line of Custom Desert Racers Specials are being produced over the summer, or you can specify a custom build to your own design.



The Sideburn bike runs our classic spoked 18" wheels shod with 4.00 x 18  Firestone ANS tyres which are just perfect for getting sideways in the dirt.
Our Mutt special US spec handlebars give complete control of this little firecracker and the comfy classic barrel grips make it a pleasure to twist the wick. A chrome megaphone silencer tops off our standard stainless steel downpipe to give that healthy rumble you will only hear on a Mutt.


The seat is our own version of the classic Bates TT style seat popular on 60's and 70's British desert sleds and scramblers, allowing the rider to position their ass where ever is comfortable. Perfect for the taller rider. 
And the paint? oh we like our paint here, that is an orange candy flake over a silver base and really pops in the sun.



Of course all our Mutts come with front mudguards, mirrors, indicators and speedometers but we kind like our little Sideburn thumper stripped down to the basics, just the bones as it were. Have a go at winning Metal Mickey, or give us a shout and commission your own.
