XV920 Cafe

Nice pipes.

Tea, you the man

Tea had creative juices flowing one evening and knocked this out. I like it. Cheers!

And here is Tea himself back in the day on his FZ700! OG.

Did I mention I like a good cannoli with my whiskey? If you have a recommendation for where I can find some tasty ones leave me a comment.

I like old through new. Boardtrackers, cafe, purpose built race machines, customs, you name it. About the only thing I'm not a fan of is the streetfighter with the kicked up tail and knuckleduster heel guards.

This is far from something that I wouldn't like.

Speaking of racing...

...endurance racing really excites me. This is a great photograph.

TL racer

This is by far one of the nicest TL's I have ever seen. There are only about three I like total, more on the other two later...

"insert post title here"

Uh huh, no info on this - it caught my eye a long time ago. If you have any information share it with me. Nice looking machine.

No Regrets

I like Roland Sands. This particular build of his really works for me. I'll feature more of his stuff later I'm sure.

Don't see too many of these...

...Suzuka prepped Monster

More Moriwaki goodness

Back to business...


I'd love to have something like this to knock around on.

You just can't beat Mad Max (which is on the TV right now) and The Road Warrior. Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome I can live without.

Max: The chain in those handcuffs is high-tensile steel. It'd take you ten minutes to hack through it with this. Now, if you're lucky, you could hack through your ankle in five minutes. Go.

Mass centralization, check.


Enough with the cold weather already

Ok, it isn't quite this bad to need studs but we aren't breaking 45 degrees F this weekend and I have been really looking forward to getting out soon.

Pettinari Triumph

This turned out really well.

Kudos to the NR guys

All of 'em really, but 'specially papy, Blue, and sniper for trying to help with the graphics.  Its the right direction, needs some tweaking once I figure out how...

Yet another Honda

Maybe it's the red/white/blue livery?

Love the tail section.

Going against the grain

Epic RZ500

Unfortunately I couldn't find any other pictures of this, epic Yamaha RZ500 build.

Art itself

I find the details of race machines to be art itself.

I heart Moto Guzzi's (Ghezzi Brian Sport Monza 1000)

Another tastefully executed cafe racer...
