Jeex Mike, don't tell me you got one of those too??:wacko: A bunch of years back a buddy went to clean out a barn, as in they paid him, including "some kind of old rusty motorcycle." Yup, while I would have found a beat up old Honda, Craig came home with and old Beemer running a 40 hp VW. The clutch cable was gone, maybe why it was parked, but we got it running in an afternoon. 'Had dual Solex's, straight pipes, sounded great and ran like stink.:grin:

Sport bike? Canadian? :stoned: :tongue:

For about a year I worked at Polaris in what became the Victory motorcycle group. A sportbike was talked about but never built - it was going to be a triple BTW.

And as already mentioned, Polaris is an American company. Headquarters is in Minnesota. Bike engineering started out in Wisconsin and moved to Minnesota a few years ago. Some of the manufacturing is done in Iowa. They do have a facility about ten miles south of Canada in Roseau, MN, but that's as close to being Canadian as they get.

Electrical question/ help
 
Alright, I have an ignition/electrical question for you motorcycle guys (but could also be related to cars).

My CB750's coils, I believe, have a rating of 4 or 5 ohms and I'm interested in throwing on a set of newer model, hotter sparking coils. The new coils have a rating of 2.5-2.8 ohms but will be eating up my new points left and right.

Here's the question: Is there a device that can be installed to allow a lower ohm resistant coils to work on my bike?

Just picked up a 69 honda cb175 to make a bobber, will try and get pics up i a few days.

nos1123 February 2nd, 2009 03:44 PM

Re: Electrical question/ help
 
If it is a single cam motor with points you could get away with running some dyna 3 ohm coils but prob nothing less as the coils swill prob run to hot. I would think you would want to go with a Dyna S igntion if you are wanting better spark getting rid of the points would help. i fyou really need alot of spark you could get a dyna 4000 or 2000 box the 2000 takes 2.2 ohm coils and the 4000 takes .7ohm but that is prob overkill for a stock motor if that is what you have

Thanks for the reply.
I've read up on the Dyna coils but they are out of my price range, plus I know for a fact that the Dyna 3 ohm's need the electronic ignition set up. I'm staying with the stock points set up (spent $50+ on an OEM points plate not too long ago and don't want to spend more money to replace it). I know the 2-3 ohm coils that I want to buy will be rough on the points but produce a way better spark.
I was hoping to find a contraption/device that will allow me to run those coils with my points set up without the headache of burning the points up.

I'm still clueless as to whether the stock coils I have now are above or below the 2-3 ohm range. Below perhaps? :Idunno: This shit is confusing... :wacko: but thanks for the help anyway.

Are you a member of forums.sohc4.net ? There is a guy there that sells a transistorized ignition system. His name is Hondaman and people swear by them. Supposed to make your points last nearly forever. That is the place to get all info for a cb750, 500, 550, 650 350... nearly any old honda.

he keeps changing his ideas on the front. Concentrating on finishing up the rear before tackling the front. Plus, out of argon, not much now til he gets another bottle.

Has thoughts of an 40's (?) dodge truck tear drop headlight. Will have to dig the local junk yards to see whats still useable first.

Nice thing about your choice is that you can't lose. Both have a great look. I've ridden the Scrambler, but not the Nightster. The Triumph is really nimble in the twisties and has plenty of torque.

i was thinking Bobber style Im not to into the cafe's. you cant tell from the pic but it has a lot of surface rust so it needs to be torn down for repaint. Oh ya 4k on the speedo and one owner its been sitting out side for years and was left with gas in the tank.

Without a doubt, that bike would look killer as a bobber. I don't suppose there is a company selling hard-tail kits for those?

What size is it? 350? I think 500cc and up was a 4 banger, right?

Here's a sick Honda CB750 bobber that I found on ebay last year:

Well it's pissing rain again and suposed to continue right through next weekend so I now have some time to post my report from this last Saturday.

Started out at about 9am and met my friend Mike for breakfast. I ordered the waffle special and (of course) a side of bacon. Apparently at this particular establishment a side of bacon is about a 1/2lb. :grin:

After eating we went to pick up Mike's friend Randy at his place.
Mike on the left, Randy on the right

http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a2...Picture002.jpg

From Randy's we headed across to the north side of the Mighty Fraser River for some foothill twisties.



This road takes a hard left and turns into a veritable roller coaster through the hills :grin:

Randy went home to attend tto his honey-do list and Mike and I headed back over th Fraser to Fort Langley for a coffee. Mike ordered some cinnamon latte froofy thing and was a little embarrassed when the cute server girl brought it out to him

I scored a tiki mug for the home tiki bar at a junk store next to a gas station along the way but I didn't take a picture.

All in all a pretty wicked day of riding and hangin with good friends. I think I've said it before but I really can't complain about days like that in mid February in BC.

A guy I bought parts from in Austria just offered to sell me his BMW r75, if my wife wouldn't kill me and I could afford the import charges I'd be all over that... oh well

The bars are just low enough for me. Lower would look cooler but, I think that height is just practical enough where you could still throw some bags on it and go a distance.

I thought I'd give an update on a bike I've been keeping my eye on since I started working for Mitch.

Before:
http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i1...blic/berg2.jpg

After: Paint, front wheel (100 spoke with twisted chrome spokes), cables, brake lines, and a bit of striping.

http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i1...c/IMG_0174.jpg

and some wiring:
http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i1...c/IMG_0175.jpg

A local striper from Banning did the stripes and paint. Looks killer so far. I wish the bike was MINE. Since I haven't the time to work on my own bike or v-rod project, I've been keeping busy documenting the work at the shop lately.

I'm very slowly working on a 250cc honda cafe. I have bid on many of these fairings. they just go for too much. I bought a short one and going to make it look like this.

I was soooo tempted to build a replica bike with my cb750, but I'm more into the original 50s-60s brit cafe bikes.

Mikelrome, here's a link to a company that produces factory racing and vintage parts (replicas) out of fiberglass.

Airtech Streamlining

I say you should strip that Yamaha tank down, stretch it, throw some knee inserts in and rock it. :thumbsup:

V8Transporter March 13th, 2009 03:47 PM

Re: Motorcycle Thread
 
Try Airtech. I bought a copy of and R90s BMW fairing from them for a lot less than anywhere else. Quality is excellent.:thumbsup: You have to fab your own brackets but a man of you many talents should pull that off easily.:grin::grin:

Love the hardtail look but on the roads around here suspension is really nice to have and my back can't take the sudden surprise of a pot hole..or pot hump if the road crew has been at it.
