Scrolling though the media library these just caught my eye for no reason in no particular order! This isn’t based on any site stats or even any strong preferences on my part although I admit that there probably IS a disproportionate leaning towards two strokes (and probably Moto Guzzi but I guess it’s like a blogging Rorschach test so I’m not really surprised). Everything I post is on here because it interested me in one way or another and especially after scrolling through the galleries I realize now more than ever that I really do like them all!
Digging through old emails and realized I missed this eye-popper! That title is not a typo! If you have to ask why… well… You’re not “wrong” but you either get it or you don’t! LOL.
Here’s a Youtube link!
A very well updated GPZ. This bike was my favorite all time motorcycle at the time. Of course I was 20 so that makes it easy.
I frequent your page and like the custom bikes I see from time to time. My bike started out as a stock 1982 GPz1100 minus the windscreen and clocks and I transformed it to this. It runs around San Antonio Texas from time to time….

“Hello Richard Weslow from Circle K Kustoms out of Milwaukee Wisconsin. My partner Kurt Schwengel and I built a 1965 Honda CB160 Cafe Racer I think you would enjoy.We have been building bike sense 2009.Take care and thanks for the looks.”
A reader writes in with a request for info for his XS500 Cafe Build.
I am building a 78 XS500 Cafe but seek guidance from those who have gone before me. Specifically I would like to know what Dean’s Keihin carb jetting setup is on his TX500.
Your post, the one that led me here:
Is there a way to get in touch with Dean other than posting a comment on the blog?
Thanks and kind regards,
P.S. for kicks I included a picture of my nearly completed current project
Kent Pierce’s 1967 Triumph TT Special
I bought this from actor Robert Carradine in the early 80’s. When I got it it had a fresh engine from Jack Hateley ( not installed) ape hangers, 12″ extended forks and a rear tire that looked like it came off a car. The guy that found the bike for me knew Carradine set the deal and put it together for me unfortunately he wasn’t much of a mechanic. Then I had a shop called Supertwins on Laurel Cyn & Ventura (gone now) get it running right. Then it sat for 20 yrs. so I decided to re restore it my self with some help from my friend Jason DeLanoy in November 2015.
If you’re going to live in the Florida Keys getting around on a Puch Twingle would be a pretty cool way to to it.. Saw this on vacation.
You featured my CB750 Cafe as ‘Bike pic of the day’ back in Sept 2012.
I have just completed a rehash on the same theme, but this time gone a bit made with the Ali and engine.
If you want any further info on spec etc please do let me know.
Love the site and open mindedness of the subscribers.
The world would be a better place if there were more of these sweet sweet stock RD400’s being ridden.
