Flat Racer

This guy from Britian’s Flat Racer loves his BMW Cafe racers. He has some beautiful bikes for sale on his website. Looks like he has a great eye for classic Cafe Racer lines. Love the detail, right down to the positioning of that BMW badge.

Tee it up

Posted on May 9, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Other. No Comments

We can’t get enough of vintage motorcycle t-shirts. Heres a couple of sites that we’ve found that stock some sweet tees. The first is called Motomania and are based in the Netherlands (website is a little confusing) and Nthro is in the States. Nthro stock the vintage Metro Racing collection from Ducati, Triumph, Norton, Moto Guzzi, Vincent and any other bike brand you can think of.

Metisse Replica

Posted on May 7, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Scrambler. 2 comments

Now I am a huge Steve McQueen fan. I am also a sucker for anything retro and vintage. I love the look of this bike and I am sure there is a lot of people out there who have more money than sense. But i have to agree with Hell For Leather (love your site guys) that this Steve McQueen Metisse Replica Desert Racer is priced steeper than the Great Escape jump (£13,000).  So hit this link to read their very honest review…

On the subject of Steve McQueen, Gary Sideburn gave us the heads up on this re-enactment film. Its pretty cool and you get a good look at that McQueen Metisse replica in question…

Tell him he’s Dreamin’

The 1966 Honda 305 Dream is a blast from the past. It was a legend of its time. Even Elvis rode one in a movie (and you thought he only rode under age girls). Heres some pics of a sweet yellow 305 scrambler. The ass of the bike looks a bit clunky to me. But hey some people like big butts

Wrap it up… I’ll take it

Posted on May 4, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Other. 1 Comment

I just received some pics of my sr400 before it gets shipped out here. Looks like they have done a good job packing and wrapping. I’m sure there’s a lot that can happen between Japan and Australia. I have heard some horror stories about cars being filled up with water or bikes that look like they have been dropped by forklifts! Anyway, it still looks great at this stage.

Honda CB750 model

Posted on May 4, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Racer. No Comments

How cool is this Tamiya  CB750 racing model? To be honest I’m not a miniature model guy. I actually prefer to own the real thing. Nonetheless it’s a beautiful 1:6th scale model. I would definitely buy one if my name was Ken and I wanted to impress a hottie named Barbie (although she probably won’t fit on that racer seat)…

Jason Lee’s Cafe Racer

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…
