For Sale! Yamaha DT-250 – $800

For those of you who don’t know I am vacating Philadelphia for the much much much greener and more mountainous pastures of Asheville, NC and thus am selling my beloved DT-250. The price is $800 and it comes with a troop of shitbag friends to ride it with. I will even throw in a case […]

Z1 drool

The 73-75 z1 has the coolest color schemes. Droooooolllll… My z1 is a 74, but for some reason the dude I got it from had tank and tail from 75 on it. I’m gonna get my shit repainted back to 74 colors.  So, either: green with yellow stripes or maroon-brown with orange stripes. I can’t […]

Live and Let Live

The youth, and the very concept of having fun and fucking off, is coming under attack here in Philadelphia. It all started when the local crew of wheelie kids, One Way, epically shut down I676. Then, local celebrity and kingpin of One Way, One Way Corey, got arrested and served probation. Now we have cops chasing kids in […]

Troglodytes Show 2017

This years Night of the Troglodytes was awesome. Saw some really unique choppers and even had a couple friends bikes in the show. Besides Dcars, I think my favorites were the knucklehead with the green frame and vader wheels and the Triumph with the black tank and chrome frame. I can’t wait to have a […]

Heli-coil heaven

As seen in previous post, the z1 blew out 4 (non-heli’d) cam cap bolt holes randomly, out of no where after a year of being totally fine. So, I heli-coiled the z1 cam caps fucked threads last night. Went well. Engine is fixed. Really glad I didn’t have to take head off and take to […]

Z1 cam caps

Jesus fucking Christ. Just when I think the z1 is solid and done, something else breaks. The first gen KZ motor has a weak spot. The caps which hold the camshafts down and in place, have shitty bolt holes. They’re m6 threaded holes in the soft aluminum head. The sequence for removing the cams and […]

June Thursday

Good weather. Good Ride.

KZ nitrous

Craigslist KZ’s

Searching for KZ’s on Craigslist has been pretty entertaining. It ranges from jokers asking tons of money with no photos, to super terrible photos, to bizarre trike creations, to wild drag racers. I’m not sure if my favorite is the ‘Don’t need it need it gone’ or ‘kz650 needs new computer’.

SOLD! and everyone guessed over. PUT A GUESS IN TO WIN A T-SHIRT… read the post So I’ve been searching for a Z1/KZ900/1000. However, I’m realizing why it hasn’t been an option previously… they’re crazy expensive. I’m really hoping to find one in stock condition that hasn’t been messed with but I don’t think I […]

Motorcycle insurance

I don’t think this is a topic anyone has ever talked about on this site. Everything below is super self-explanatory, so, scan as necessary… I always go for the cheapest auto insurance. I have Progressive mc insurance. The maximum number of motorcycles you can have per policy is 4. For the bare minimum coverage of […]

KZ drool again

Back story: I’ve always liked fast cars. Shit, I worked 2 jobs all summer when I was 18 so I could afford to put an Acura integra motor into a Honda crx. I was a janitor during the day, ha, and worked at a gas station at night. Crx was fast as shit and I […]

STONE 1974

I recently found out about this old movie. It’s a bizarre movie in that weird 70’s biker movie kinda way so it’s definitely worth watching. It’s about the Gravediggers crew of bikers and they all ride Kawasaki Z1 900’s. Anyone know of other old biker movies where they ride Japanese bikes? It would be cool […]

1976 Honda CB550

Last month marked 6 years of owning my ’76 CB550. It all started with Ed breaking down in Morgantown, PA on our way back from Denver, CO in 2010. Lucky for us, the house we broke down in front of was a motorcyclist and helped us out. While at his house we got to check […]
