My wife’s cousin’s Triumph Bonneville Cafe.

He stopped by last weekend. Nice clean ride. It’s for sale too. Located in Northeast Florida.

This is Dirt Quake! A Sideburn production.

This is “fooking brilliant”! Looks like the brits are taking an American invention and improving on it! And what a great time they are having. Watch the “inappropriate road bike” class. Good luck trying not to laugh your arse off. Why the hell doesn’t this exist here? If it doesn’t it should.

A tough looking CB500T. That’s not a typo.

This one almost slipped past me in my spam filter for some reason. Sorry about that Robert. I love where you took it. More proof that you don’t need big bucks for a cool looking ride.

What to do with a CB 500T and some power tools you ask?

I made this thing a long time ago just messing around in my friends garage. I kept this bike out on the street in NYC and had been knocked over and fucked with so many times I decided to go with it. Rust seemed to make the bike look better. I etched out the pattern on the gas tank to make it look even more F-ed up and older while revealing the layers of paint. After all it’s just a CB 500T. Note the angle of the seat matches the frame rail so it looks more a part of the bike. I made it with scrap metal from the roof of junked Nissan 240sx. Hehehe
Great Site, love the bikes. I own a 71 Yamaha R5 350. Will send some pics of that soon.
