Title: DO THE TON / DIME CITY CYCLES BIKE OF THE MONTH - AUGUST 2019
Post by: Tim on Jul 08, 2019, 11:21:48
Our good friends at Dime City Cycles are the official sponsor of the DO THE TON Bike of the Month Contest!

Dime City Cycles are not only generous sponsors of the site, but they are good friends and incredible supporters of our community.  They've been part of our group of friends since the earliest days of DO THE TON over 10 years ago and both DTT and DCC have grown side by side over the years working to foster the garage-built community of enthusiasts.

In addition to gracing the masthead of DO THE TON for a month, Dime City Cycles will recognize the winner with:


Here are the Nomination Rules:

1. Nominate one of our members' bikes for Bike of the Month - include up to 3 flattering pictures of the bike in question.  This is an opportunity to recognize someone who's bike has inspired you.

Please don't nominate your own bike - make sure you have a well detailed build thread, post up in the Show n Shine area etc. and if enough people like your bike, someone will nominate it and maybe you'll see it as our banner in an upcoming month!

The Nomination must be accompanied by the member's User Name, a link to the thread where their bike is best described (Build thread, Show n Shine etc.) and a PHOTO of the bike in question.

2. Someone seconds the nomination (please only second one nomination)

3. Member should accept the nomination - If you're nominating a bike, make sure you're in contact with the owner, that they want the bike included and they accept the nomination.  The Nominee should provide some back-story on the project, especially if there is a limited build thread.

4. Bike must be in running roadworthy condition - no basket cases.  I know our bikes are never really 'finished' but it should be on the road/track/dirt and rideable.

5. If a bike has been nominated in the previous month but did not win, it should not be included in the current month's contest.  Wait 3 months to allow other worthy nominations and then resubmit if you like.

6. Bikes that have won in prior contests should not be included unless they have been modified significantly.

We will accept nominations for a few days till we have a good selection to a limit of 3 bikes per contest.

A poll will be set up and voting will take place for a week or so depending on timing.  Whoever ends the voting period with the most votes wins :D

Focus people.  If anyone wants to ask about the last 24 hours, shoot me a PM (there isn't really anything to discuss).

Nominate another bike :)  It's going to be August soon.

Seems like pretty slim pickings this month...a lot of guys working, but not so many finished. Anyhow be that as it may, I thought Phomeniuk's Kawasaki 250 might make a good opponent to Kanticoy's bike, even though he started with a pretty decent machine.

Sorry, but I can't get the photos to load.

Two easily restorable bikes and one that started off as a scrap heap...I appreciate the work that goes in to bringing something back from the garve, I just wish kanticoy had spent a little more time on the final finish. Anyhoo...My vote is in.

If it helps, everything is refinished, itís just refinished to maintain the patina. 2k clear on the tank, all of the frame and wheels are powder coated, etc.

This bike was indeed a scrap heap. Literally bought it off of a scrap trailer full of abandoned junk at barbers. The story goes, I traded a set of tires for  a locked up and neglected DR500 several years ago from CycleFreak73 and turned it into a dual sport mongrel over 3 different versions. At the end of the day I had a titled DR500 frame since I swapped the original motor into a later model DR650 frame sitting in the shop. I have had a dream of building a bobber around a pair of leading link forks I have had in the rafters from buying them at a swap meet about 7 years ago and I figured this titled DR frame was the perfect candidate. The heavens opened up and dumped the scrap heap DR500 in my lap at the booth across from our spot at barbers last year and the game was on! Ended up spending the better part of the year rebuilding every part of the bike into the crazy thing you see today. Turned out better than I expected!

Congrats Kiley!  Very well deserved for sure!

Wow, you'd think that there would be more than 36 votes for BOTM.  Surely there are more than 36 "regulars" popping in and out of here on a regular basis.  I know the subject has been beat around before, but it would be nice to see more monthly recognition of the hard work, talent, and ingenuity represented.

Thanks for the love guys! I really do love and ride this bike a lot so Iím super stoked that you guys appreciate it as much as you do. It was fun because it had no rules so it was organic as I built it. I agree that it seems like folks donít see these great bikes enough that get nominated every month, itís cool for the guys who build them to get the love and the recognition for all of their hard work. We are already a community of weirdos so we might as well support one another with our digital high fives and ass pats!

Need more shots of  that crazy front suspension. How is it behaving over bumpy highways at speed?

Thanks for the love fellas!


Need more shots of  that crazy front suspension. How is it behaving over bumpy highways at speed?

It actually behaves very well. It is basically a swingarm setup just pointed to the front instead of the rear. Has a cool effect of anti dive built in and the leading link makes it super easy to steer.
