    Nixon, 1972 Honda CL450 Scrambler Refurb

    Most of you who have been on here awhile have seen this before. She's been around the block. It's time for another rebuild, the final rebuild. When I bought her, she looked like this. Then I did the cafe thing. Custom aluminum tank and seat. She looked like this until I rode her off the...

    It's Always Your Fault

    I just finished this article Wes wrote on RideApart and thought it needed sharing. http://rideapart.com/2013/10/10-things-ive-learned-10-motorcycle-crashes/ The most insightful point to me was #5: So true. Stay safe my friends.

    Kickstand App

    Tim, instead of passing out those pucks at Barber again, maybe we could get a DTT branded version of this app. Brilliant! http://www.aerostich.com/aerostich-sidestand-plate-app.html I always forget my puck, but I never forget my iphone.

    Helmet painting

    This isn't actually moto related but I thought someone here might know and it could apply to moto helmets. I'm looking for a relatively inexpensive way to paint a helmet metal flake glossy black. I'm looking for about $5-10 per helmet not counting labor. It is actually for athletic helmets so...

    "Cafe Racer" = Design Philosophy?

    I guess the term "cafe racer" is now moving from fad style to design philosophy. http://www.autoblog.com/2012/10/29/fiat-readying-stripped-down-500-cafe-racer-concept-for-sema/ I wonder if they will put clubmans on it. :) I think there are a lot of other terms they could have used to...

    CB450 guys, what does the stock rear brake pedal return spring attach to? I'm trying to figure out if I can use a CB pedal on my CL since they are a bit different. Thanks.

    Landlord Games - What would you do?

    Short story.... I'm renting a house. The house was foreclosed on and recently sold at auction back to the bank. The bank assigned a property manager to handle the property. Yesterday I get a text from the former owner asking if he can get some of the stuff he left in the house when he comes...

    Typical Rider

    Hahahaha, sounds about right. http://www.autoblog.com/2012/09/19/motorcyclist-survives-crash-three-days-in-a-roadside-ditch/ Seriously though, glad it looks like he is going to pull through. This is actually one of my fears. Wrecking and nobody seeing it and being unable to get help.

    Mr. E. - vel Knievel

    So I had the pleasure of attending a cookout at Mr. E.'s house this weekend. A good time was had by all. The shine was brought out and then things got exciting. After setting about a cord of wood ablaze, Mr. E. decided to have a little fun. Apparently, shine turns Mr. E. into Mr. E. - vel...

    Cafe Rags

    When I was at the Meltdown Vintage Bike Show in Hendersonville, NC a couple weeks ago (Thanks Speedfiend!) I talked to one of the vendors there a little bit. He was selling some pretty cool shirts. One of his designs I had seen before and I am working on incorporating into a tattoo design. He...

    DTT Barber Build 2012

    I am very conflicted about starting this thread. I really love the idea that I am going to lay out here, but I am uncomfortable being the beneficiary of the project. There are people on here that actually NEED our help or deserve it more than me. All I did was act like an idiot and ride...
