    '84 SR250 Garage build.

    That's pretty darned good. Here in Salem, with the Traffic Clowns moving in by the busloads, one can rarely see 110kph, so I was considering uping the counter-shaft sprocket from 16T to 17T for reduced rpm at cruise. That's less aggressive than the 16T/40T combo, so that's encouraging. (I'm one...

    '84 SR250 Garage build.

    How did it do with the 40T? Did it cruise decent at 100-120kph?

    Ton up SR250: 100mph, 100kg, 30hp

    Fascinating stuff! I remember the "Gasohol Days" in the early 80's. It would change a perfectly fine running car into a car whos fuel system had some sort of petro/bio snot running through it's filters. Back then, their excuse was, "...the new fuel cleans so well, it's knocking loose all the...

    Man, I wish they would've shipped some of those HERE, so we could play, too.

    NT650 hawk restomod

    Really nice job on an inherently beautiful bike. Hawk GT has got to be one of Honda's more collectable rolling sculptures of near-modern times. I had a red one, and it felt like taking it out into the elements was doing the cycle-world an injustice. I ended up selling it to someone that...

    Yeah, not available in the US. Seriously neat bike. I'm envious. I think the FX is the best looking of the three!

    WEIRD QUESTION: Has anyone ever attempted a cast-rim swap on an SR250? Just to get tubeless tires, no spoke cleaning, etc.

    To be sure. No way in Hell would I attempt pulling the gearbox apart, unless I planned on turning the empty lower case into a weird-looking flower pot.

    WOW! Nice find! That is a good looking bike! I'm guessing those aren't available in the US, but seriously. NICE BIKE. You are going to have FUN. Sorry about your BMW Incident.

    1975 BMW R90/6 - Rocinante

    More power to you. I can't imagine pulling a rim apart and trying to re-spoke it / true it successfully, but I keep reading about people who do, so I guess it's possible. Just WOW, though.

    1975 BMW R90/6 - Rocinante

    STILL a gorgeous bike. Earned her patina. Painted spokes seem like they'd be easier to take care of? I'm sure if a person has to, they can true them later as needed....? So I Googled "Metal Turning Green" and they're suggesting bronze or copper. (?) In my old days as a Kitchen Officer, I...

    "The gas tank smells like a combination of unicorn vomit and dragon piss." VERY DESCRIPTIVE of That Odor that we all know so well. Something that also smells identical is California Tap-Water, which would explain a few things.

    Wife's Scooter.... kicking my butt. Starts, idles, good for between idle and 1/2 throttle. Will take off down the street like all is good and then peter out about 10 seconds later. I'm thinking fuel delivery and/or float level of the new carb I bought. So that's this weekend's project. In the...

    WOW! It's like a Time Machine! I'll bet the tank and fenders are going to clean up gorgeous. Black bikes are the very reason for wax! Bike looks so much better without the extras. Congrats!
