Last year, for the first ever Bikers Café Build-Off, a trio of brand new Royal Enfield Classic 500 motorcycles were handed over to three of UAE's top custom builders - Möto, 86 Cycles and Deus Arabia. They were given a deadline to build their vision of a custom Enfield; the only prerequisites being that the original engine, chassis and logo have to be retained, along with full functionality. This year, the concept remains unchanged for the second Bikers Café Build-Off competition, with a trio of Honda XR125 bikes handed over to Sebastian Husseini from Seb Sports, Omar al Tamimi from Lycan Customs and Adel Michel Gasan from Café Racer Middle East.

Performance filtration specialists Pipercross have added yet another core classic car to their 3,000-strong model portfolio; the perennial Porsche 2.7 Carrera. The air cooled flat-six responds extremely well to breathing modifications, with a panel filter and exhaust upgrade often being the first improvements that owners make. The Pipercross filter is designed to be an exact replacement for the rather asthmatic factory paper filter and uses multiple foam layers to allow up to 30% more air flow through to the engine, improving power, torque and drivability over the stock set-up. As well as increased flow rate, thanks to its unique (and patented) multi-laminated open cell polyurethane foam construction, the Pipercross upgrade can actually filter down to a much finer rate than the OEM part, preventing any foreign particles from entering the induction tract, meaning even greater protection for the Porsche's engine. This same construction means that the filter can also go longer between service intervals than even leading cotton-gauze filters, before needing to be cleaned.
