Purpose Built Moto Blog

The Purpose Built Moto Motorcycle Blog will keep you up to date on everything Purpose Built Moto. From new parts and apparel, our builds and weekend rides.

Since I was a kid growing up in rural South East Queensland, I've had a life long love affair with everything on two wheels. Helping my Dad fix motorcross bikes in the shed was the first step towards me eventually building my own bike.
