Royal Enfield Continental GT Royal Pearl by Chiltepe Motors


Chiltepe motors is a Guatemalan workshop dedicated to the restoration, modification and maintenance of classic motorcycles. Our projects are based on legendary brands, so we took upon the challenge to customize a Cafe Racer Legend: The 2013 re-issue of Royal Enfield's 535cc Continental GT, which we believe embodies the essence of the Cafe Racer movement. This version of the GT comes stock with some great upgrades like disc brakes and improved suspension, and we decided to add our personal touch by revving up it's performance and giving it unique elegance. This is why we named our Continental GT the ROYAL PEARL, which keeps true to the original 1965 GT design, with modern day performance and quality materials.

For sale, a 1961 Featherbed framed Norton 850 Café Racer


Jean Des Rosiers from Montreal, started to build this bike in 2007, first by collecting parts and making plans. On a whim, he decided to change the final drive to a belt, this may have added some time to the build, but it changed the way the bike looked and made it different from all the other café bikes. He wanted to be able to see through the bike, only important and eye pleasing components would be visible. See more HERE

Tamara Madden


Tamara Natalie Madden was born in St. Andrew, Jamaica and raised in Manchester, Jamaica. It was during her childhood in Manchester that Madden was exposed to her first artistic influences. She continued to pursue art during her high school years, studying advanced literature, photography and creative writing. In 1992, when her art teacher passed from cancer, her sadness, along with teenage concerns, diverted her attention from art. Tamara created art sporadically for the next few years, with her passion eventually dissipating as life issues took precedence over her creativity.

The Supremes


The Supremes

Founding members Florence Ballard, Mary Wilson, Diana Ross, and Betty McGlown, all from the Brewster-Douglass public housing project in Detroit, formed the Primettes as the sister act to the Primes (with Paul Williams and Eddie Kendricks, who went on to form the Temptations). Barbara Martin replaced McGlown in 1960, and the group signed with Motown the following year as the Supremes. Martin left the act in early 1962, and Ross, Ballard, and Wilson carried on as a trio.
