The Country Mile Race

I unfortunately had not heard of this race until the week or so before it. I think we should plan on this for next year. There is about 15 of us on old dirt bikes now and this is only 3 hours from Philly. What do you guys think? Enter the Open Amateur or Open […]

Number 8 Wire Motorcycle Trip Photos

I hit up Colin of Number 8 Wire Motorcycles for a recap of his West Coast trip. Here’s what he had to say: Yo man, I’ve been flat out! Here are some pics. The trip was epic. South from Missoula are some amazing roads, through Stanley and Sun Valley (ID) then through Nevada to some […]

Cb550CamSwap-1

CB650 Cam in a CB550

This swap always interested me for the power bump but I never found any good comparison info about it so I was skeptical that it was possible without major modification. I successfully completed the swap and it was very straight forward but you will need to some additional parts to do it. Here’s all the […]

Old Toyota Truck Ads

While doing Yamahauler sticker research I fell into an internet hole of old toyota pickup advertisements. I love everything about the old Toyotas. I like that they were just called ‘pickup’ and were basic small trucks with great colors options and even better graphics. The new trucks just don’t have that same cool look as […]

Honda CB Starter Delete / Block Off

Here’s a solution for removing your starter if you have setup your cycle to be kick only like I did. Previously, I used to use a rubber freeze plug which is the standard internet forum recommendation. However, day one of riding to Lake Superior my freeze plug blew out and my bike hemorrhaged oil 30 […]

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 […]

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 […]
