Jason Lee’s Cafe Racer

Posted on April 28, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. 3 comments

On the cover of the latest Cafe Racer mag is a pic of Jason Lee and his awesome 1966 Honda CB160. So sweet. It was made for him by the guys at Lossa Engineering. They have a cool website with loads of nice old honda cafe racers. If you want to subscribe to Cafe Racer Magazine click here. Its worth the cash and worth supporting….

Vintage hotties

Posted on April 27, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Other. 1 Comment

I love vintage ads. When motorcycles were naked and woman were clothed. I wonder what happened to these girls? They are probably grandma’s now telling the grandkids how they were once a hot Norton motorcycle model. Wait a minute… is that you Nana?

Parilla Thrilla

Posted on April 25, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

This is one beautiful motorcycle. Parilla motorcycles only made motorbikes for 18 years so they are quite rare. The story goes that Parilla Motorcycles was started after a young man in Italy saw a Norton Manx and was in awe. He bought one, took it apart and measured it. Then sold it and started making his ‘Parilla’ bikes based on the Manx. Enough of the history lesson, let’s get back to drooling…

God Save The Triton!

Posted on April 19, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

Heres a couple of Tritons that I have found around this worldwide interweb super highway. Would love to take these babies on a real highway. For those that don’t know, the name TRITON comes from combining Triumph and Norton. Usually taking the best parts of each. Normally the Triumph engine and the Norton frame. But theres lots of different combos these days…

Warm and Fuzzy feeling

Posted on April 18, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. 1 Comment

Saw this beautiful CB350 cafe racer and got that warm and fuzzy feeling again in parts of my body I can’t discuss here. I think the couple in the old CB350 ad below know that feeling as well…

One Little Indian

Posted on April 14, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Classic. No Comments

Another piece of motorcycle history I admired at the Deus shop was this old Indian Scout. I know it’s not a cafe racer but it would have been one hell of a ride back in its day.
In the 1920’s the Scout gained reputation for strength and reliability, which led to the old Indian saying: “You can’t wear out an Indian Scout, or its brother the Indian Chief. They are built like rocks to take hard knocks; it’s the Harleys that cause grief.” Them are fightin words!

Achtung Baby!

Found this German site all about Ducati’s called Rudi’s TT site.  Rudi has some beautiful bikes on there. Looks like he has been obsessed with Ducati motorbikes since he was a young boy. Heres just a selection of some that caught my eye…

Deus Triton

Posted on April 11, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

Stick a late 60’s Triumph engine 650cc in a Norton wide line Manx frame and you have a cafe racer to die for. Triumph brakes, Norton tank, Dunstall pipes, alloy rims and straight bars. With pin striping on the silver tank all you need is the scarf and goggles..

Trip to Deus

Posted on April 11, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Racer. No Comments

I love going to Deus. I don’t enjoy going there with my ankle biters but hey i had no choice today.

They have so many great bikes in every corner. Discovered this little beauty in one of the corners today (next to the fire extinguisher and water cooler). A Yamaha R5 350cc from the seventies. Makes me want to put on my leathers and take on Mr Stoner.
I love the description (sales pitch) on the the ‘price tag’. If you can’t read it heres what it says…
“350cc 2 stroke bike with disc brake upgrade. Will need very little to get up and running again. Go racing, its fun, it’ll make you a better rider, meet new friends, meet beautiful women, get rich, get bigger muscles, rub shoulders with super stars,…” I’ll take two (not that i need bigger muscles)!
