Harley-Davidson Sportster XL883 Cafe Project

So, I recently finished my Honda 919 build, and have been in the market for another project.  I’d like to get into building bikes for a living, so I’ve been cutting my teeth on Honda’s for the last few years – just trying to get the hang of non-bolt on customization and all that that […]

How To: cb550 Carb Cleaning

Mick’s cb550 was starting to lose a little power so it was time for a good carb cleaning. Took us about 3.5 hours which is a little long, mainly because 4cyl Hondas have the worst air-box set-up ever. Can’t wait to get pod filter on that thing. Fuck that air box. Get a good manual. […]

chinonthetank cb360t

Angle grinder time! Since the Thursday ride was rained out I made some good progress in the basement. Cleaned off all the side cover tabs, fender holders, seat mounts, the weird mount thing under the head tube and shortened the back end of the frame. Pretty sure the neighbors weren’t psyched on the grinder hell […]

chinonthetank cb360t

When Andrew bought his cb360t earlier this year we aqiured a ton of extra parts as part of the sale because the seller was moving to NYC and couldn’t take any of the stuff with him. This really sweetened the $400 deal especially since we ended up using a good bit of the parts to […]

I left Gallipolis, OH this morning right after the fog lifted on the Ohio river scenic byway. Aaron and I had spent his day off tooling on “the motorcycle that will never run.” We got it…well…, sounding better? Maybe, but we did get gas all over us. It was nice to see him talking like […]

Norton Engine Continued

So I was working on the engine today and finally got the head on and valves adjusted. Just a few more minor things until I drop her back in the frame. Slowly but surely. I could still use some extra hands when you guys are free. I hoping to have a rolling cycle in the […]
