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 […]

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’.

Kawasaki Big Boy $$$

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.

I have Progressive mc insurance. The maximum number of motorcycles you can have per policy is 4. For the bare minimum coverage of […]

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 […]

Husqvarna WR250 | Motor Breakdown

Due to the stuck crank and the sick smell of mouse piss coming from the motor I decided it was necessary to split the cases to clean and inspect everything. I was happy to find that all the internals appear to be in good condition after a good cleaning. The stuck crank seems to just […]

Ghetto Bird vs Cool Guy in Philadelphia

120+ mph on Kelly Drive. Don’t know who this dude is but there has to be more to the story of why the ghetto bird was after him. I doubt it was for going 60mph on Kelly just before stopping at the gas station. If you don’t recognize it, he starts out at the intersection […]

I picked this up last summer in a box. It was cheap enough to take a chance on getting it back together. So far the bad consists of: – Broken tap in the shock mount – Missing some parts (fork internals, oem headlight) – Some really crappy repairs on the frame and motor – Cylinder […]

ss brake line

Replaced the shitty oem rubber/solid pipe with a stainless brake line from Max. Huge thanks to him for hooking me up with it. had to trim a spare banjo bolt to make it work but i’m real happy with the results. this should really improve my marginal braking power. THANKS MAX!!!
