If you have a cb650 (or any jap 4cyl) and you’re looking to splurge close to an extra $1000… This post is for you. 79-80 cb650 actually have pretty good stock-oem carbs IMO: 29mm bore, mechanical slide and accelerator pump.

Rulers’ Run

Every year towards late August a handful of rare souls converge together to wreak havoc on the streets of Brooklyn, like some horrid natural phenomenon emerging from the sea to consume an entire city.

Summertime Film | roll#1

This summer I carried my 35mm Pentax camera for the occassional shot. I mainly shoot digital but appreciate the look and feel of film in certain situations. I’ve been really slow with finishing rolls so I actually only shot a hand full. I’ve gotten some developed recently and the pictures are a random sampling of […]

Runways and Hundos

My 500 has been running pretty solid, but over the last few weeks I’ve been fine tuning it. I pulled the carbs last week and did a bench sync, which helped a lot. This morning I did a full tune up and then decided to take her out for a ride. I was on my […]

CB500 Clutch Rod Replacement

My cb500 is almost 100% finished up. I got my new set of Avon road runners on the other day, man what a difference new tires make! I was still having issues with my clutch, it felt like shit, and it turns out my clutch push rod was broken. The clutch adjuster was also cracked. […]

CB500 Update

So I’ve been working away on my cb500. I got it back in November and at that point it had been sitting for 22 years. After a bunch of work I got it running, what a great feeling to fire up a bike after it hasn’t seen action for that long! Here is everything I […]

MLK Jr. Day Weekend Motorcycle Teardown

I took off work and spent 4 days in the “Jankyington” garage. We burned enough wood to build a house in Kensington, which is to say, a fair amount of wood. Together with the Yerkes brothers, a lifetime supply of Sly Fox and a killer high from aircraft stripper, we had a Martin Luther King […]

This is a basic tutorial on how to re-lace a spoked wheel in a cross 4 pattern. (Took me roughly 4.5 hours). Our friend Bill Becker was kind enough to coach me through this, and let me use his tools. Thanks again Bill! 1) Get all new spokes and nipples from Buchanan Spokes in California. […]
