My neighbor rebuilt an 86 buick indycar v6 turbo in his living room a while back because he has a couple videos from Menard's engine shop and that was where his tv is:wacko:. I had to help him get it down the front steps and into his van when he was done. He ran high 7's with it in his GN back in september. Any wonder he's not married??

Wow ,
Man you guys have some nice rides !!! Mines not that old but i been working on it for three years on and off . The Frame is a creative cycle frame , the tank is made by John Little . My design is to mix old with new styling . I changed the color like three times and have not settled yet , but i'm leaning towrds a "rustic" look or weathered look .

The look of that bike is really growing on me. The cafe-ish look is always fine in my book, but the painted rims/spokes and knobby tires are fucking killer!

Now that's a great looking Cafe. But, have you ever encountered rain grooves with a knobby tired bike? It's kinda like they're going , "ooh, this looks good, no wait, over there, no, back this way." Not an experience for the faint of heart.

I'm damn excited about it. The first day there (Saturday) I began working on one of Mitch's own personal bikes.
He had me re-lace and true a 21" rim, mount a tire, and drill/tap the hub for a dual disk set up. Later on, he'll teach me how to TIG weld and use his english wheel. :dancing:

Maybe I'll be able to fab up an aluminum tank for my Cafe bike...

Speaking of Cafe bikes...we were weren't we? Mike Seate has a new magazine out called Cafe Racers. Format is great with excellent photography and slick articles. He's starting a project based on a CB 750 which should be pretty cool. I was thinking about putting the clip-ons back on my Cafe Sporty, but my back and wrists responded with a resounding "No!" Instead, I'll swap the bobbed rear fender for a stainless one of undetermined British origin from my bone pile. 'Got an old period tail light too!

Yeah, it's a '97 900ss/sp. One of my favorite Ducs, I bought one new in '95 but sold it to buy a 996 in 2000. Always said I'd buy another one and last August I finally did. This one needed some work which I'm trying to get done this week, but I keep moving backwards. At least it'll run well this spring...

That'd be a 1966 Ducati Monza Jr that no longer looks anything like a '66 Monza Jr. :smile:

http://www.teamyikes.com/SuperSport/IMG_1015_l.jpg

That'd be it from another angle or just go here for the whole story.
http://www.teamyikes.com/160/ducati160home.html

That's a '74 750GT partly hidden by the bike cover, and the flash in the background is the plate on the aforementioned 996.

EDIT: Oh yeah, the yellow fender behind the 750 is for my Harely powered cafe racer project. I'm still collecting parts for that one. I need a wideline featherbed frame and a few other things still... ok, fine. All I've got so far is the fender but it's a start!

I'm kinda fond of Italian bikes too. big shock, I'm sure! There are a couple more hidden behind stuff down there... a 907ie, a 250 Monza that's going to be a 350 Bitsa, and, well, a 250 that's now a hardtail.

Yeah, It'd be Sportster (or Buell) powered. I'm basically pissed off Harley has forgotten about it's sporting heritage and want to build something along the lines of my Super Sport, only Harley powered. (And before some young 'un gives me shit about thinking Harley has a sporting heritage, check the results at Daytona from the 50s to the 70s, then get back to me)

But now I'm rambling... and no, the heater isn't from Italy! :funny:

Car? But it looks like it has, um, five wheels.:huh: And at speed those front wheels must be just screaming. The tech guys must have been really scratching their heads.:wink::wink:

I love the old Brit twins.To me they make better bobbers than H-D bikes.Im not hatin on Harley though.I just prefer Sporties.They look like actual motorcycles instead of overdressed bagger Yuppie bikes.
Now the hot bikes Im currently lustin after are new/late model stuff. I LOVE Triumphs new 800 Bonneville! Big bananna seat,blacked out wheels and fork legs.
And all this for around $7000 .
Im sure most of you have seen Harleys Nightster 1200. Its the coolest Sporty on the road.But just yesterday thay introduced a new Sporty called the Iron 883.Now its not as cool as the Nightster,but if youre gonna buy an 883 its definately THE one.

Ahhh, a fellow Sporty guy. My old iron bikes still turns a lot of heads, mostly because the Harley guys can't believe something originally built waaay back in `83 still runs..and they don't get the Cafe look...go figure.:huh:
The nice thing about the new Bonnies is the aftermarket; and Triumph's own stuff is pretty cool too. I see a lot of Bonnies on the road and very seldom are they in standard trim. I really like the Scrambler. I had one for a loaner while my Tiger was in for a warranty gig at the dealer and a guy in a really clean `56 Chevy stopped next to me at a light and said ,"Hey, nice restoration!" :grin:

Growing up my long time high school girlfriend and a couple of brothers that were her uncles all races flat track Harleys. Needless to say, this is my idea of a real Harley

I get a kick out of some of the people with the big twins that think sporties are "little" bikes.My two currents are the shovel and the bagger I posted.If my wife never rode with me,and I dumped the old bagger for a new bike......it would be a nightster.My bro in law got one.......very nice bike!Im interested in that 883 there was talk about too.I had a 96 883 with a steel ural sidecar on it.....that 883 went all over the country without issue.

Yeah, my B-i-L is a little skewed when it comes to the size of things. He's 6-4, probably 425-450 after a month at the biggest looser. He thinks his heritage soft tail is kinda small, of course at his size it probably feels like it to him, but he is in a shriner drill team and everyone else rides baggers. I told him he's got about two people on me. Some older 750's feel a little big to me but I'm also more of a around town or back road sport biker type and he's into riding 3-400 miles at a time.

Id ride it.For me its about motorcycles.The only reason I have HD is I have the special tools,and I can fixem anywhere I need to.Parts are cheap for internals too.Then again,on a jap biked Id have nothing to do......Id be bored.

:chillin:Back in the mid 80s they used to have bike shows at the Macon Mall.That was where I saw a factory Sporty done up cafe style.It was tween an 81 and 83,right the Evo years.It was like a 1000 cc,XL somethin .Had straight low bars behind a tiny black ferring.Cool part about it was it was a complete departure from the rest of the H-D line.Remember this was way before Buell.Back then I didnt even have a drivers license,much less a bike license.All I wanted was an old $1500 Sporty{which the paper was full of back then.
My Triumph love came from this cat in my neighborhood named Ronnie Davis,known to most just as R.D. He was THE Triumph guy.He had at least 20 lined up in the back yard.But he had this one that was on a rigid with a diamond tank, bright orange metal flake,pitchfork sissy bar and a twisted springer front end that stretched out into next week.Oh and no front brake,of course.And man was it loud.He used to ride it on Halloween wearin bell bottoms,no shirt,glow in the dark face paint and his Stormtrooper helmet.Man,dont fear the reefer.Sadly he has passed on and all the righteous Trumps are gone.Ride on R.D.

The one thing I never liked on sportys was the typical sporty tank. I like the lower profile rounder tanks on a sporty.

I don't care who builds it, thats a sweet clean looking bike. Very much an update of an early 80's style sport bike before the move to the crotch rocket cafe bikes.
Definitely a Storz and XR look alike, but change the colors and the pipes to a sport bike pipe and it could also look a lot like any number of the CB models and clones running around the third world. Still, it looks like it could be a fun little bike. I'd love to have another VT500 Ascot. It was a total wheelie machine. That looks like it could easily be what honda would build as a modern interpretation of the classic V twin flattracker. Sell it for $2500-$3K and I'd at least look at one.

My buddy just bought one of these last week. He paid $11,000.00 for a 2004 with 17,000 miles on it. I have no idea if it's a good deal or not :Idunno: The air ride on it is really kool though :grin:

Richie; If youre talkin about Forsyth,thats where I lived in 04 when I got out of the joint.The smaller mall youre talkin about had to be Westgate Mall.Thats where the bike show started.Had some good car shows there too.The buffet was called The Quails Nest.All thats gone now and that whole side of town is serious ghetto.
I hear alotta people say they dont like the Sporty style tank.Funny, cause thats one of my favorite features.Even if I had/built a big twin bobber Id use the Sporty tank.
Ive never met them cats you mentioned.See,I probably sound older than I am.{38 this month}So I kinda missed out on all the cool scooters.Not to mention Quaaludes and 8 tracks. Im still flyin the 70s/ Trash flag though.With my Molley Hatchet t shirt and PBR tallboy can. Did I mention the VW tat on my right ankle?
But seriuosly,Polaris made a good start back around 00 with the Victory line.But then they they axed the sport bike model that I liked.Now theyre just a bunch of over chromed over priced Canadian shit.To be honest, that newish 800 Bonnie is the best scoot rollin right now.The Bonneville America model is nice too,but it just dont have the appeal of the retro model.Just wish I had some money or credit.
