Co-built

Cool video from a rider based company in the UK that built race quality frames / bikes  and components for both the street and the track.

Great concept.

Hide Motorcycles Glory


Found this beast over on the Hide Motorcycles website while looking for some front fairing inspiration.

It's called the Buell Glory and is based on a Buell 2005 Lightning and features a number of nicely done custom mods including an aluminium tank and front fairing, solid disc wheels and a scrambler style pipe.

For me it's one of those bikes that isn't instantly appealing, but the more I look at it the more I dig it.

They've got some other nice builds on their site too.

Paranoia Racing Ducati SSS

I love this paint job from Death Spray Customs. Actually I like most of their work, it's always so fresh.

Building your own Cafe Racer Seat

Very helpful video for the garage builder or anyone who's wanting to get their hands dirty and build their own cafe seat.  The guys from Dime City Cycles have put together another How To.

Similar to actually mixing fibreglass resin it comes in 2 parts.

Great work!

New Project - The Experiment

Well a couple of weeks ago we picked up a neat 1987 Yamaha SRX250.  I didn't know much about this bike but it looked so similar to it's bigger bro the SRX600 which I'd seen before.

It was a non-runner but apparently it had been ridden as a daily commute about 2 years ago.  Everything looked in fairly good condition and all original.  The carb inlet boots were perished and it needed new a new chain and sprockets, but the frame and tank were straight.

The previously owner was a scientist, and while we were inspecting the bike I was trying to formulate scientific small talk to break the awkward science sorry I mean silence.  Things like "So what's with that gravity, can be a real downer sometimes hey?", "Did you hear about the baker that got electrocuted?  He stepped on a bun and a current ran up his leg".

Didn't get much of a response, and as I realised scientists can be a tough crowd.  But anyway we made an offer and he accepted it.  I think he accepted it not because it was a good offer but because he wanted us to stop as we were lowering his IQ.

And for this we have named the new project



We won't be bending any time nor space, but hopefully we'll be cloning a few things we've done successfully in the past.

The Legbreaker Speed Trial One

We took the Yamaha RS125 down to the local flats to run it through it's paces. With no regard to his own safety Hilto bravely volunteered. This is the result.

Stretching her legs

Hilt and I took an early morning ride today since the weather was perfecto.  Ended up taking some photos of the Legbreaker along the way.
