Some of you may remember Hombrese bikes fantastic build based on the Kawasaki W650 that was released this year on the Wheels and waves festival in Biarritz. I caught up with him and we talked about bikes and future project.
Uwe has been a close friend of mine since quite a long time and we originally met surfing in the Basque country. We were both into motorcycles, but he took the whole thing a littler further by starting to build his custom bikes.
From the early age 14 Uwe has always enjoyed working on bikes. Starting with little 50cc bikes he also spent a lot of cash in Tickets because most of his custom modifications were not legal by the German law. Moving on through life he founded Hombrese in 2012 after seeing a and getting inspired by cafe racer. He finished various builds and tries to stick out of the mass of bikes that are often held in black or silver by introducing fresh colours.
One of the highlights on his current build is the custom welded exhaust in which Hombrese push the boundaries of what is possible on the W650. Although Uwe has many projects he is still open to inquiries for custom builds.
