Build em... Ride em...Build em again

First built as a track bike, this motorcycle has slowly been put
together over the years and will now assume a more street
legal form. Some say barely...I beg to differ
Money is dwindling, but braided hoses are in order

I wasn't keen on the rear disc but they say it's 'unconventional' to
have an alloy and a spoke wheel on the same motorcycle. Maybe they
need to get out a little!! Or maybe i need to stick to my ways to
save myself the trouble

A 14mm Nissin master cylinder will put the brakes on the front.
Thank God the spares from Japan are finally getting used.

Timed, tuned and tweaked, this motor should be a whole lotta fun

Stay tuned to see how the build turns out, or if you're in the area,
swing by to see it, touch it or hear it. BRRRRAAAAAAAPPPPP

thanks to Pablo for the great lenses, without which the pics would absolutely suck

Prayer, hope and faith to the people of Japan

Words of Wisdom #37

William Burroughs was high on drugs, alcohol and experimented with all the pleasurable things in life. He even shot his wife in the head 'by mistake' while he was drunk. Seems like he must know more than us for sure, or maybe he was being plain sarcastic... Who knows?

the art of suspension setup

3 clicks of rebound, 5 clicks of damping, yada yada yada... Just keep it wide open and turn clockwise to tighten

Twin Grin

It's double the giggles... 

and double the grins...

And double the trouble if you're riding twins.

Bicycle song

You say black I say white
You say bark I say bite

I don't believe in Peter Pan
Frankenstein or Superman

All I wanna do is...

Bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
