2009 Triumph Thruxton

Posted on March 27, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer. No Comments

This is obviously based on the Thruxton racing bikes of the 60’s that lead to the huge Cafe Racer Revolution. They have done a great job keeping close to the original. Even hiding the fuel injection system in a pair of carburetors so it retains Thruxton’s legendary racing look.

I have read lots of great reviews of this bike and if i had a bit more cash I would definitely make some room in the garage for it.

This Frenchman Jean Francois Vicente is a man of my own heart. After riding ducati’s and Velocette thruxton he wanted something a bit more reliable and then discovered yamaha sr500’s. The rest is history. Now he owns VD Classic that specialises in custom Yamaha SR500’s and lots of other classic bikes. Heres a selection of Sr500’s from his gallery… I love that SR scrambler…

IS IT HOT IN HERE?

Posted on March 15, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

I have seen this pic of the cb750 with the hottie in bikini many times. Hard to forget that beautiful body… and the girl looks alright as well. Found out this bike was recently on ebay and was sold by kgcycles. Went to their website and they have some sweet looking bikes. This cb750 is one of the best I have seen. Would love to know how much it went for, if anyone knows can they let me know?

Found these pics and cant find any information on them. Only that they are designed by Porco Rosso which means ‘red pig’ in french Italian. There are more on Numero1 if you like what you see. The kawasaki zx10r  looks like it could rip your arms off.  I am happy to sacrifice my arms for a ride…
