Well I will add/update on hubby's bike~
Those $500 dual carbs? are going as soon as he finds 4- 45 caliber shells to fix his original 4carb set. He wants the 60mpg back, this 30-40 crap is for the birds. He is only using about $15 less than if he were driving the dragon for a daily. :hmm: Somehow I knew this was coming~

here's my current pile... 1981 GL1100 now with clubman bars, bar end mirrors, harley front fender, R6 LED tail/turn combo lights.
The front signals will be replaced, stock pipes shortened to the expansion chambers, lowered trees on the forks, some other bits will be detailed and if I can afford it, a fork brace.

I finally got my Harley running decent. The baffles I put in the pipes were giving it a really huge flat spot when you rolled on the throttle. It has an adjustable main jet that would not dial out the flat spot and I couldn't get the damn accelerator pump nozzle out to play with the size. Took the baffles out and it runs great. I also made some custom intake boots from some stiffer wall silicone turbo hose that finally cured my intake vacuum leak. I have about 25 minutes of seat time so far. I had to pull the mount for the master cylinder forward controls because it cracked again :yelling: It was cracked when I bought the bike so I pulled it off and welded the crack only to have it crack again next to my weld so now I will add some bracing and stiffen that thing up. I know....... I bought a Harley, used and built with various aftermarket parts........ But I will get it sorted out :thumbsup:


Hey Matt........ Did you get that free Honda Shadow????????????


















And is it done yet?????????? :funny: :funny: :funny:

Nothing better than a 650lb cafe racer. :grin:

I really like the look of some of the early Goldwings without all the plastic. I'm not sure how I'd like to ride one though.

Paul, this is my second one :thumbsup: they ride really well because the weight is all so low. i drive a nice twisty road through the hills on it and i feel more comfortable throwing it into the curves than i ever did on my radian 600 cafe bike.

Hey tequilla, When my '83 Sporty would break, and for the first several years it was pretty often, the guys at the Harley shop would say, "Well, It's a Harley, man."...sigh. She's now been sorted for years and is a lot of fun to ride.:thumbsup::love: Folks on their Evos and newer bikes look at her and sometimes ask dumb- ass questions, like, "Wow, that's an old bike, does it run?" :blink: No joke, a guy asked me that at the local gas station a few months back.:grin:

Been working too many hours so I don't have my bike back up running yet but I'm off work tomorrow so I can get my mount welded up and start painting it................ Even if my bike was ready I know I'm not ready for a long ride yet so I will be driving the G/F's car with luggage and booze up to Vegas Thursday for the bike event. My friend and some of his co-workers will be making the ride up............... Good Times :grin:

Having the name Grand Prix in our company title, we get all manner of random motoring related email crap come through, some good, some not. They're worth looking at though for things like this!

OK....my daughter Maggie is interested in getting her cycle endorsement.....and building a bike.

So I have an old Honda Trail 90 that will fit her nicely and be a good commuter bike for back and forth to school. She likes the old school cafe racer look so this is what we came up with in Photoshop this afternoon...

Here's my Honda 50 on a ride a couple weeks ago. It would be sweet to see a 'cafed' step through honda.

Maggie has been working on getting the frame, forks and other sheetmetal bits sanded and scuffed in preparation of paint. In the meantime she did a little Photoshop work to provide a better vision for the project....

We give you... GROND, the Honda Trail 90 Cafe Racer...
