    saving a 1980 KZ750 twin

    Yeah, rebuilt that too. It works well, in fact the turning starter clutch may have more to do with the thicker engine oil I'm now using. Still, a world away from where it was before I rebuilt the starter clutch - the springs looked like yours only way longer. I was going to ask you what the...

    1977 BMW R100/7 Sarcoplasmic Cow Hellride

    Not that it makes a blind bit of difference to anything at all but I like the high pipes too. Bike's looking great Irk, how did you make the pattern on the heat shields?

    saving a 1980 KZ750 twin

    Proper nice bike man. I can't remember if you modded the engine or not - I overbored my CB750 to 823 with CB900 overhead cams and pretty sure that combination blew out my starter clutch, or at least contributed to it. I've since rebuilt the thing and while it's better it still huffs and puffs...

    Awesome bike is right. Not sure I've ever seen one before, thanks for sharing. Looks like a great turnout at the show too

    What a beauty. OG post drills man, don't make them like they used to. You should get that thing up on a wall...

    1982 Virago 920 engine up build

    I'll bear with that no problem. I love a good virago build, and this is most certainly one of those. Top bins.

    They speak English there? Thank fuque. Not sure of the exact date of manufacture. The side of the drill is embossed Blower & Forge, Hamilton, ON and from what I've sleuthed the company was operational there around the beginning of WW1. So around then I guess.

    Looks like a fun day out - any idea what bike this is? Never seen an engine like that, very cool

    Inspired by Hurco's find to share what I bought this summer. My wife and I are looking to move to Prince Edward County (few hours northeast of Toronto), and I always pull a dramatic rally right whenever I see a rural antiques barn. Spotted this on a wall and thought it's either coming home...

    Swamp Donkey 2.0 Fat Tire Bikes Make the Rockin World Go Round'

    What in the name of all that is holy is the behemoth Stage Left? The bike's cool and everything of course but damn what in the hell is that thing? Apart from not-mine-sadly?

    1982 CB750F...Better Devil

    Popping my Barber cherry will have to wait another year. Weather took a dive this week so the bike’s under wraps - if things cheer up a bit then I’d like to take it to the F1 circuit here in Montreal for a few laps. It’s the Gilles Villeneuve circuit built in on an island just off Montreal...

    1975 CB125 Tracker project

    Shit man, wish I had something constructive and helpful to add. (Moral support, sure - but that's a given). Carbs on my 750 gave me shit for 6 months - my problems were multiple. Are you back to your OEM carb? Your float height is good? Decent seat and float needle? They caused me the most...

    1982 CB750F...Better Devil

    Still giving you shits Mike? Man I feel for you. Chased my tail for months with this bike. Stick with it - if I can figure this shit out then anyone can. That or torch the bastard.
