    The World’s Fastest Gringo

    Bold claim, right? This thread comes with some history. The PDV Gringo was a motorcycle produced by PowerDyne Vehicles in 73-74. The PDV way was to send Japanese engines and whole bikes over to Taiwan to be copied. They then sold the bikes as American made. Seems like most of their business was...

    1979 RD400 Daytona Special project or parts bike

    I’ve got a super rough 79 Daytona Special that I’m looking to move along. There is no title, only a bill of sale. The right jug is gone. The right headpipe and muffler are gone. The carbs are gone as well. The front fender is rusted through at the bottom. There is no key. The seat pan is...

    I broke down and spent some money...

    This is the second build of this particular seat. The first iteration is around here somewhere, but this one is done properly. When I stalled on the rebuild about 5 years ago I was ready for padding and upholstery. The first version of the seat my bud Brandon (TwistedWheelz around here) and I...

    Anyone in the Asheville area?

    My brother lives there and I'll be going up that way around Christmas for a week or so. I visited him earlier this year and found the vintage bike game strong! Anyway, I may bring a bike with me... Sent from my iPhone using DO THE TON

    Shorter cables...

    The last time I looked into getting shorter cables for my throttle and clutch (many moons ago) the consensus seemed to be with cutting them down myself. Now I'm not opposed to figuring all of that out but I was wondering if anyone knows of a different way. It seems like you can buy everything...

    Uncommon Motors

    Has anyone here checked out uncommonmotors.com ? The dude from thekneeslider.com started it a while back. It's an aggregate site like bringatrailer.com or barnfinds.com. He was slow to post stuff for a while but he's been posting regularly lately and there are a good number of interesting...

    Nighthawk 750 tank ramblings and cheap Chinese tank queries

    I'm just easing back into my old motorcycle hobby, so forgive me if this has been gone over. I browsed around and didn't see anything right off. I've got a 93 Nighthawk 750 and while I enjoy a lot about it, that stock tank is fucking gross!! I've been looking for a tank from an rc42 which is the...

    Reintroduction...

    Hello again DoTheTon! I was here a lot years back and then life got in the way of motorcycles. My wife and I both went full time on our business about 5 years ago and between that and raising three kids I haven't had any time for my old hobby. I sold off all of my bikes except for my 71 cb750...

    MMA fans? Silva vs Sonnen II... Thoughts?

    So Anderson 'The Spider' Silva and Chael 'The Gangster from West Linn' Sonnen meet again this Saturday night. It's the biggest mma fight of the year. Anyone here into such things? And if so what are your thoughts on the fight. It was almost two years ago that Sonnen gave Silva all he wanted for...

    I just got excited.

    At my business we have a girl who works for us whose boyfriend is a machinist. This morning he told me that he has permission to use the equipment after hours and if I ever need anything made to holler at him and we'd go up there and do it. Lathes, mills, auto-cad, etc! Now I'm trying to think...

    Wtb two matching 4 to 5 inch headlights

    My naked gl1200 project needs some eyes and I want to run a twin round headlamp setup. I'll barter cb750 cb350 and gl1200 parts, just ask I've got lots. Or I'll purchase them. Would prefer to use something non-Harley and vintage. Doesn't have to be from a motorcycle. Just need to find two...

They do the same thing with cars, weird, rare stuff. Anyway, any other folks here been there? Headliner right now is a bultaco works racer in New Zealand.

    84 gl1200 naked project: Ole Dirty Bastard

    I picked up this bike a while back and I have not been impressed with it. The floorboards scrape every time you even think about cornering and it was just a huge sluggish dull ride. Everything was mechanically okay though. Then the starter pooped the bed on me. So I decided to put this bitch on...

    Been away for a bit, just checking back in.

    So I've been a member here for some years but for the past few months I've been extremely busy with some life changes (went from city worker to self employed). As a result of this stuff I haven't been posting here at all for a while. Now I'm getting settled in and have a bit of time every...

    Warning! Comic Book Geekery inside...

    So I'm watching headline news this morning drinking my coffee, sitting in my recliner an something upset me so much that I had to post about it. Marvel comics is making a Tim Tebow comic book. They showed pages from it, discussed it, etc. So, what the fuck? I collected comics for years when I...

    Let me introduce you all to my new two wheeled land barge...

    Here she is, in all of her girth and glory. She is the sleeper-cab big-rig of the motorcycling world: The 1984 Honda Goldwing Interstate. This particular bike came with a "Hold my beer and watch me paint this here motorsickle" paint job that is accented by a "I'll put some of these stick-on...

    Motorcycle stereos?

    I got a 1984 goldwing last weekend and the stereo is absolute shit. It's a thirty watt cassette fm turd. The reception is shit even though the bike has these huge dual whip antennas. So I'm wondering if I can get a decent stereo hooked up with the stock charging system.

    So now I'm getting rid of my sport trac for a bike... Probably this weekend.

    I've got a 93 fjz80 landcruiser that I bought about six months back. I have wanted one for a while, and this was the first time that I went out and bought exactly what I wanted. Trouble is it has already been an expensive vehicle (12 mpg) to own. And it going to get more expensive with upcoming...
