This is the beginning of my solo seat on my cb500t. I’m going for a super low, slim and minimal seat that fits with the curves of the tank. Cutting out paper templates to get certain measurements. Laid out the design on 16 gauge sheet metal. muscled some bends. Stance
Based on some things I’ve been seeing lately from Adam and Shinya, I’ve been psyched on the bare metal look. I think it fits my 650 well. The 650 is a little rough around the edges and sounds nasty with the pod filters and 4-1 exhaust. So the raw metal tank with a few minor […]
…makes the sickest cycles I’ve seen. check out his website: http://www.chabottengineering.com/menu.html Some of his philosophies include: – respecting the raw material he’s working with instead of painting it – older 70’s engines carry the spirt of the person who drafted them
pretty good lookin…
This weekend I finished fabricating the front end of my bike. Started by mocking up and drafting the gauge/switch bracket. Spray mounted my mechanical drawing onto an 1/8″ flat stock steel and then roughed out the shape with the hacksaw and cleaned it up with files. Installed! Left switch is for the High/Low beam and […]
Well I’m outta Japan and kicking it in Korea now so I saved the best post for last. Check out this gem I saw in an alleyway in Tokyo. This has my vote for best bike of Japan (even though its not a Japanese bike).
Replaced the shitty oem rubber/solid pipe with a stainless brake line from Max. Huge thanks to him for hooking me up with it. had to trim a spare banjo bolt to make it work but i’m real happy with the results. this should really improve my marginal braking power. THANKS MAX!!!
i’m using a spare set of cb360t gauges on my 500t. i disassembled them to polish the cases. after stripping the paint i wet sanded with 320 grit and got a nice brushed aluminum look. i dig it. ricky, ed and i can’t figureout how to turn back the mileage without running the risk of breaking […]
yea… my s2000 is an earlier AP2 which means it has no traction control. For those of you who didn’t know… the s2000 is rear-wheel drive and mine has g-force sport tires, which are awesome sticky summer tires. So… snow VS the s2000…. – snow wins by a long shot Some dickface piled all their […]
- gross before – less gross after
time to get the cycles packed away in the garage, and away from the outside shit…
no turning back now.
looking emo on the cb450. This was when my bro-in-law still had the 450. The summer he first got it. Now he has a sick Ducati monster.
Seca 750. Fast and burly…

This is the original Fairmount loop. It takes about 25mins. It’s still my favorite. Basically, you ride east Fairmount park, cross over the Strawberry mansion bridge to West Fairmount, then do the hill up to the Hostile. Then go down Belmont plateau. Then, Mann Music center tight hill. Then backtrack to Strawberry mansion bridge again, […]
