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)!

LUXE Motorcycle

Posted on April 10, 2009 by Scott in Bobber, Brat. 1 Comment

Yes, it is another Japanese custom shop. But these guys are doing things a little different. They look like they are really experimenting with tanks, pipes and paint jobs. Pretty distinctive. They are called Luxe Motorcycle Factory and they also have lots of other bikes on their website thats definitely worth checking out. Mostly SR400/500’s and w650’s.

Can’t fake the Flakes

Posted on April 8, 2009 by Scott in Brat, Café Racer. No Comments

These guys are also in Japan and are called Flakes Custom Motorcycles they have some really nice bikes. They also specialize in some crazy paint work on tanks and helmets. I prefer the understated look but I have seen some crazy bikes and clothing in the tokyo streets. Heres one of their more subtle SR400’s… except for that smokin exhaust.
