Spark Plug Guide

I am currently working on tuning my 1976 CB550 for pods and a CB650 cam with the help of the jetting wizard Ed. We’ve been discussing which heat number to run. Out of curiosity, I did some reading up on spark plugs and learned more than I expected. 3 Important things according to NGK: 1. […]

Northeast On Old Motorcycles

The good weather has had me thinking a lot about this years cycle trips. At some point, myself and few others are looking at taking a trip up through upstate New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and possibly Maine. Anyone reading this have any good recommendations for camping spots, roads to take, swimming holes, sights worth […]

Gathering of the Nortons V2

Too much different plans going on for this. This is what I’m doing if anyone wants to join… Ed and I are going to be camping at Deer Wood Campground in the Tohickon Valley Park. We’ve camped here before and it’s nice low key spot and I don’t expect it to be busy. It’s $20 […]

Tiny Yamaha’s

This past weekend was another great jalopy shred in the Reading woods. The 30+mph winds made the drive up sketchy in our tiny Toyotas but it was all worth it once we got to the woods. I severely lacked at taking any good photos but sometimes that’s a sign of how fun the trip was […]

Curb on the Tank

Sometimes leaving the bar you start your bike in gear, drop it on the curb, and have to fix it with Duct tape. Don’t judge.

Chin On The Tank-ed?

Some of you might be surprised to know that Ed leads a second life pretending to be a younger man. This young man goes by the name ‘chin on the tank-ed’. Not all that original in my opinion. Anyway, in this life I imagine he rides an eco friendly scooter, obeys the speed limit, drinks […]

Sergio Layos | Fly Bikes

Sergio Layos has been one of my favorite riders for a long time. In fact, I still ride his signature Pantera frame that I mainly got because it’s his frame. It’s awesome to see this guy is still riding better than every with fast lines and the cleanest brakeless/pegless style. Watch this video even if […]

However, for larger cc motorcycles that fit the below requirements there is an additional form that you have to submit: 1. Titleable motorcycles 300 cc’s or more last registered in another state are required to […]

Filthmode Crew

In the current online world of highly curated motorcycle photos it’s rare to see people out riding old motorcycles and having fun without it looking like a storyboarded photo shoot. I recently came across this crew out of Canada that is ruling on old XT’s. If you’re looking for something fun to follow on instagram […]

KZ750 swing arm stretch | 3

Took a drive out to Mike A’s garage to get some tubing turned down to match the ID of the swing arm tubing. I’m hoping to have a lathe again soon. Turned slugs tacked into the swing arm. Anyone know what the best practice is here? I’ve typically tacked them, assembled the part, and then […]

Kz750 swing arm stretch | 2

First step in modifying… Take a good part and render it useless.   I’ve also found that one of my favorite bikes is based off a 77 or 78 CB750F that has a wheelbase of 58.9″. My modifications should give it a comparable look with the rear wheel placement. ****EDIT the wrenchmonkee bike description says it […]

KZ750 swing arm stretch | 1

I’ve decided to give the KZ a little more length in the rear for looks and function. This is a bunch of work for a slight change but I think it really gives the KZ improved proportions. Looking through some of the old magazines in the shop I found a Cycle Guide from ’81 with […]

Local Builder Bill Becker

If you didn’t already know… dirt bike weekends fuckin’ rule. Last weekend, 12 of us packed up after work on Friday and headed 3hrs outside Philly to Bald Eagle State Forest. Around 10pm our crew of old Toyota’s was cruising down a gravel road in the pitch black. Ed and I in front, were pounding […]

Cross Country

If you’re currently at work and not all that excited to be there then I wouldn’t suggest reading further… I recently heard from Philly resident, Josh Laskin, who earlier this summer quit his job and started a cross country adventure on his BMW motorcycle. I think we’ve all thought about what Josh had the balls […]

C&S x COTT on Iron & Air

I remember when Iron & Air first launched a few years ago. They started from scratch and have become a well known name in the vintage motorcycle world for their original content and high quality photos. So, I was really excited when I found out that they were going to run a post about our […]
