    '78 CB550k Motion Pro throttle cables - WTF/sanity check

    I ordered a set of push/pull cables for my 1978 Honda CB550k from a reputable shop that caters to the vintage UJM world. The part numbers are 02-0007 for the pull and 02-0008 for the push. When trying to install the pull, the inner cable appears to be at least 3cm too short. I can easily slip...

    Vintage Leather Jacket D-pocket Champ - Price drop

    I'm selling off one of my leather jackets. This is a vintage Harley Champ-style jacket. It has had a liner replacement and whoever did it didn't preserve the inside tag - so I have no idea who made it. It has a beefy Talon zipper on the front. All zippers work. The D-pocket zipper zips...

    Steel Toe or not to Steel Toe?

    I'm shopping around for a new pair of riding boots. I've been leaning towards a pair of Chippewa or Red Wing engineer boots. There are some pairs for a good price on the ol' eBay...but they're steel toe. I've never had steel toe boots for riding and I'm not too sure if I would want to. I...

    Buco re-issue by the Real McCoy's

    The Real McCoy's have done a pretty amazing job at reproducing a classic Buco....although the price tag puts it far out of reach of the average shit muncher (aka me.). http://www.selectism.com/news/2010/11/23/the-real-mccoys-buco-j-100-riders-jacket/...

    Need tail light ASAP

    Hey there, Mother Nature has gone and shit and pissed all over the guts of my tail light. The running light works, the brake light is buggered. I could fix it, but the rear fender needs a chop anyways so I might as well do it at the same time. I'm looking for a small lucas-type tail...

    Vintage Jacket Restoration

    I have a 1950's Grais jacket that needs some restoration. Can anyone tell me what period-correct zipper would be found on a jacket like this from the 50's? I'm sure it would be similar to what would be found on a Buco or Beck of the same period. Here's an image of the jacket from...
