WHY WE'RE HERE
We’ve been building serious custom bikes for a very long time. But due to the size, and expense of high end, vintage motorcycles, the custom bike scene can seem quite inaccessible. We wanted to change that…
So, we started applying that same build quality and style to small cc bikes that are easy to sling round busy city streets, bend round country lanes, and charge on the open road. This would take small cc motorcycles to the next level, and our approach meant building them a little differently.
The whole ethos behind Mutt is to deliver you a bike that’s easy to ride and maintain, affordable to buy and run, whilst giving you the same feel and sound of a classically styled custom machine.
Each bike gets the same attention to detail as the big, high-end customs we’ve spent many years building and you get endless possibilities for personalised detail changes.
A BESPOKE APPROACH
We've spent over 15 years on the spanners, building hundreds of custom bikes. Having handled everything from 1920's Indian cut downs, to Harley Knuckles and Panheads, along with classic Brit iron, this lets us look at small cc motorcycles in a completely new light.
Working with from the ground up we knew we could be accessible and still deliver a classic style with strength and a true custom vibe, but on a leaner machine. A bike that would be easy to handle, quick to respond, and adaptable to almost any riding condition.
FROM THE GROUND UP
Our objective is to make Mutt and motorcycling as accessible as possible without ever comprising quality or style. By focusing our attention on the strength of the build, and stripping away unnecessary frills, we’ve managed to create solid, super cool, small cc motorcycles at a level you can just jump on and get going.
To do this, we spent time developing and sourcing our parts with manufacturers throughout the Far East. We needed a robust, reliable starting point for our customs, so plumped for a version of the bullet proof Suzuki GN 125 made by a Suzuki partner, an engine renowned for its power and longevity.
The base chassis and drive train are produced to our meticulous specification and design. We construct them using a variety of unique parts to create a classic Brit custom look. Our bikes are then finished and fettled ready for the road at our workshop in Birmingham, England, the historic heart of British motorcycle manufacturing. Our team then set to work completing the bike builds before they’re handed over.
AT THE HEART OF BRITISH MOTORCYCLING CULTURE
We like to think we’ve brought motorcycle manufacturing back to its Birmingham roots. Our bikes are created with a similar vibe to how bikes were built around here in the early days of BSA, Triumph, Enfield and New Imperial. We serve the scene with a Birmingham marque, incredible attention to detail, customer relations and pride.
Having recently moved into bigger and better digs, our HQ now sits in Kings Norton, Birmingham, serving as our workshop, store, research and development, office and events space. It’s the beating heart of Mutt Motorcycles, and a laid back meeting point for the custom bike community.
Mutt continues to grow at a rapid rate, developing new models, bigger cc’s, moving into international markets and developing a wider range of products from parts to apparel.
