The Sun – Mutt Mongrel Review: Trendy and Cheap

THE founders of Mutt Motorcycles really mean business.

Benny, the hirsute face of the operation, has been creating ridiculously expensive and beautifully intricate custom rides under the name Boneshaker Choppers for years.

But he realised there was very little for townies looking for something small, nippy and stylish.

Enter Mutt Motorcycles. The Birmingham-based bike builder creates affordable machines with the uber trendy aesthetic of a custom creation that any hipster with a helmet is pining for today.

The underlying platform for the bestselling Mongrel is a simple twin shock frame with a Chinese 125cc engine slapped in the middle.

Mutt then adds a faux leather flat seat, scrambler bars, a cool paint job and knobbly tyres to complete the look.
