AUSTRALIAS FIRST DIY COMMUNITY MOTORCYCLE WORKSHOP


WHAT IS THE KUSTOM KOMMUNE?

The Kustom Kommune is Australia’s first ever communal motorcycle workshop. A decked out community space. The Kommune is a fully equipped DIY motorcycle workshop located less than 3km’s from Melbourne’s CBD where you can work on your motorcycle project. Restorations, scratch builds, custom projects or general maintenance, no project is too big or small. The Kommune is a community of like minded motorcycle enthusiasts learning from one another and building networks.

WHAT IF I NEED HELP?

Jimmy and (and others) are here to help! If you need a hand we will be more than happy to give advice. We are not here to do the work for you but we are here to point you in the right direction. We have a pretty good grasp of most things mechanical but we are not experts on everything. If we cant figure something out, we can help find the solution. The Kommune is a community space and there’s always going to be someone around that can help. Members teaching members is what its all about. Lets bring back the beer economy with a ’6-pack for a bit of help’. If you want professional assistance we can tee up some one-on-one service from our mechanics. 

 

WHAT CAN I DO AT THE KOMMUNE?

Kommune members can work on their own motorcycles in a fully equipped workshop. The Kustom Kommune also offers motorcycle based training courses where we will show you exactly how the professionals do it. Basic welding, electrical wiring and metal fabrication will be explained simply, so you can improve your skills as-you-go in a relaxed, supportive environment. When you’re not working on your project come in and hang out with other like minded motorcycle enthusiasts in our share space, watch a movie or lend a hand in the workshop. A home away from home for the budding builder. Rather than simply a Motorcycle workshop, the Kustom Kommune Melbournes inner city motorcycle hub.
