Portland, Oregon has become a hotspot for the vintage racer scene, especially old Honda’s like the CB160. We have previously mentioned Vicious Cycles but we recently stumbled across another shop called Poor Bastard Cycle Works. They are a small repair, service and fabrication shop in Portland that specialize in creating custom exhaust pipes to get the most out of vintage Japanese and European motorcycles. We particularly like their “Y” pipe which are fabricated by owner Will Jones and not only give the bikes greater performance, they are also very pleasing to the eye. Just by the name alone you can tell the guys at Poor Bastard Cycles have a great sense of humor, but you can also see they are seriously good at what they do. Check the Poor Bastards blog to see more from Will and his team.

Vicious Cycle is a custom shop in Portland, Oregon renound for producing performance CB160 and Cb170 cafe racers with attitude. Love the simplicity of their bikes, stripped down in true cafe racer style. They look like they’d be loads of fun around the race track.
