Friggin awesome Carlene!!! When I first saw the first pic, I thought it was the ghost dog "Zero" from "A Nightmare Before Christmas". Then I saw the second pic and realized it was a 'gator.
Totally awesome

Hey... I never put up an "after" photo of my 750... I suppose everyone here is sick of seeing it on this thread, but since my Ghia is out of sight, out of mind, bikes are all I"ve got... Anywhos, for the last time here, a "before" pic:


And the more or less finished "after" pic:


Or click here for a larger view: http://www.teamyikes.com/Resources/Ride.jpg

Now I'm painting the mighty 160 seen here earlier... though it's not going to look nearly as fancy as Carlene's tank! That's nice!

Well, yesterday on my way home from work I saw all hopes of me getting a motorcycle laying in the middle of the road.
There were 2 cop cars, a fire truck, and a flat bed in the middle of the road. Right behind them was a motorcycle. It didn't really faze me much but when I got home, my wife told me she doesn't want me getting one. I asked hey why and she told me about the accedent. Apparantly it happened just before she got there and the guy was still under the bike shaking like he was going into convulsions. It really freaked her out.
Welp, at least I can still look at them.

Tim

yup, sold off my bikes when the first was born and got me a vw. I just wasnt having fun anymore. Too afraid of getting hurt. when they grow up I'm going to get a sport touring bike and take a trip across country.

But let's be real.... It will NEVER happen to me!









As it reads on the headstone.



It was kind of just a pipe dream anyways. The wife had already given me the ok a couple months ago to buy a used one in 2008 (gotta pay off some bills first). I was even talking to a friend of mine about helping him build one from a kit.
I had one in college and it was a blast. That was down in Hammond, La. and there was no where near the traffic there is here in western Ma.
Still would love to hit Rt.5 in Vermont with a few of my friends though.

Oh well, I'll have to get back to building the volksrod. Maybe this was a blessing in disguise (for me, not the guy on the bike yesterday )

i'm working on this one. It's a '67 Yamaha YDS3. I cut and lowered the frame and the tank is from an early 70's Harley rapido (shitty moped) and the rear fender was made from a '34 spare tire cover. I'm still working on it.

this is almost funny, look back a page, it's been one month since hubby brought home the cb750, and it got the once over, new tune up, and new color. Well, today, it 's gone! sold! had it parked for 8days at work with a for sale sign on it!
Not sue what he got from it, was asking $1800. lowest he'd go was $1500, either way~
$ from it goes into the bay, new t4 parts!

just thought I'd mention it~

How about some trikes that are VW powered
a turbo trike owned by my dads friend, it has a 1835 with a turbo as you can see, it also weighs 1045lbs an its basically a rat-trike.Hes been building them for 30 years.

This is my dads, it has a 1600cc in it with a bus tranny.


Both trikes were hand made with fiberglass an bent pipes. The frames are angle iron. My dads isnt fast but 75hp in something that weighs 1600lbs with him on it isnt really slow. But my dads friends trike has a built up tranny an motor with a turbo, it is fast. He wont take it to the track because it would tach out before it would finish the 1/4 mile, but the 1/8 it would be quick I think. Were guessing it has some where round 200hp or more.

Did anyone see biker buildoff last night with the "Experimental" bike? I thought it was too cool. I don't ride and being a physical therapist and seeing countless patients involved in accidents plus having a family, I would never ride one. However, I sure wouldn't mind building one. This one was based on a dirt bike. Sorry for the poor grammar but I just got through watching it on my Tivo and am excited.

I just finished watching it Scott. Both bikes were awesome!! But yes, I liked the "experi-mental" bike. Although I've always had a soft spot for Vincents. Here's one I was watching on ebay.

agreed about the experimental bike, and someone finally beat matt hotch

his bike was cool, but proved that it needed some refinements to be more ridable at speed.
