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.

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?

Going Bananas for monkeys!

Posted on March 30, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Other. 1 Comment

Found this custom shop in the UK that specialize in Honda Monkeys and Gorillas. They are called Monkey Bike (that explains it). They are not my style but I love some of the photos they have on their website. My favourite is the mean looking dude standing next to his hotted up monkey… now that is so bad ass buddy. Would be really funny to see a bikie gang that all ride these things… Maybe they could be called the Hells Monkeys?…

Harolds Gear

Posted on March 21, 2009 by Scott in Other, Review. No Comments

Harolds gear in Japan make some great vintage looking jackets and gloves. Theres more on their website if you like what you see. I love their tag line on the website “The goods always belong to vintage spirit”..It doesn’t really make sense but I understand it. Deus stock their leather gloves as well.

I went into Deus Ex Machina oxford st in sydney today to buy some gear and saw the sr400 grievious angel they have in store. That is such a sweet looking bike. I am sold on it.

Davida pics

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

Davida are an english company that make some great helmets, leather jackets and some other motorcycle products. But what i love most about them is the photographs they take of their products. They are modeled by beautiful women on beautiful bikes. Also they make them look retro which really suits the cafe racer look (These shots are from 2004). As Borat would say ‘Sexy time’!…

Heiwa Motorcycles Japan

A mate of mine recently purchased a Honda cd250. I had to do a google search to refresh my memory when he told me. Then I saw a shot of a Honda CD250 by Heiwa Motorcycles in Hiroshima which blew me away (excuse the pun). Check it out, it is the brown one below. Heiwa have so many nice bikes on their site I was frothing at the mouth like a rabid dog. Heres just a taste of their bikes…

I am thinking the Deus SR400 TT tank might be the go for my Yamaha. I love the look of it on their Sr400TT. It’s made by The House of Wellington. Sold at Deus.
