One of the things I learned when I switched over to a WordPress blog is that there really isn’t much of a selection of explicitly motorcycle-themed WordPress skins available. There’s about, uh, four I think, that I found online.
Well, now, I’ve more than doubled that number.
I’ve created a series of free WordPress themes for motorcycle blogs, and have tried to take care of both the sportbike guys, and the cruiser guys. All of the themes are 2.7 compatible, and widget-ready. There are no links to third-party sponsors or anything. Not even a link to me. Although, a courtesy link would be nice if you decide to use the theme.
Just click on the screenshot previews below to download the ZIP file containing the theme.
Blue Racer is a light-colored blue theme, with a racing bike header.
I certainly wouldn’t want to leave the cruiser guys out of the party. It’s a dark, grungy theme, in the orange and black colors that are traditionally associated with a certain motorcycle manufacturer.
Burnout is a sportbike theme, with a nice pic of a ZX-14 tearing up the asphalt. And its tires.
This one is a very neutral-colored, sepia-toned theme. Front and center is the image of the Tachometer of my Sportster. So, if you don’t ride a Harley, well, you might want to find another image to use as the header pic that doesn’t have a big ol’ bar and shield on it.
Like, maybe, this version, which is less Harley-centric.
High speed is done in dark steel blues, topped by a ‘busa screaming down the highway.
Sport Touring is square. The theme is square, I mean. Not a curve on it, and patterned squares are a central motif of this theme. As is the FJR1300 in the header (with all badges removed, for, uh genericizing it). Warm earth tones make this a soothing theme, in contrast to the sharp edges of the design elements.
So, I hope you like the efforts above, and find them useful if you have a blog.
