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.



“This time Paul has a bike that looks just as good as ‘Mach I’ but now has performance to match.”


“This is an aggressive machine that sits between being a street fighter and a café racer, and touches on both modern and classic.”
