Paul Hutchison’s Custom Motorcycles

(Just don’t call them cafè racers)

This website showcases my custom motorcycle builds. Please scroll down to view the blogs I have written detailing the process of construction of my BMW K100 “Hornet“, my Kawasaki GPz 750 “Saki” and most recently my Yamaha XT600. I only do mods that make a bike LIGHTER, FASTER and PRETTIER. If you like them and have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Yamaha XT600

I was not looking for another bike, but a bargain appeared on Facebook Marketplace. It was a XT600 almost completely dismantled for $420.



“overall the bike is an exercise in clean, simple aesthetics, and it certainly looks at home on The Bike Shed pages. Maybe this is what “new wave” is all about?”


Paul, I have spent so much time on your blog the last couple years, I feel as though I have done holiday at the Papa J Hotel. Fantastic work sir!
