hey folks.... If you havent been to the DOFFO winery in temecula, the place is awesome. It's a winery nestled in Temecula, but also somewhat of a motorcycle museum. if you havent been yet....go....plus...there's a vintage bike meet next weekend.

Man, this would be perfect to catch Santiago Canyon and Ortega Hwy along the way

If you're coming from the westside that would be a perfect route .

new rider here from the IE. justin. i just got a '75 CB550F as my first project bike. actually, first bike ever!

Nice, congrats on your first bike! You're at the right forum for a build.

Put up a post in the introductions sections, and start a thread on your build.

Also, welcome to DTT! You're out in Rufio's area. Maybe you can bug him to come out if you have any problems. ;D

So my small group rode up to the swap, and met some of the guys from the Cretins MC. Man, those guys were really cool. Very welcoming and cool dudes. They invited us to their clubhouse and hung out for a bit, I guess it didn't hurt that one of my buddies bought a parts bike from one of the members. But I just want to publicly say thanks to the Cretins for the beer/coffee/ and doughnuts today.

I was there also, and was surprised at the level of bikes at the swap. The Ariel was amazing, and there were some pretty reasonable prices on decent parts. Hopefully this will continue to grow. Fun for a quick Sunday blast. Like an idiot, instead of bringing my truck, I brought my Triumph without a cargo net, so didn't get to bring anything home....

Jim... snowed in up here in Lake Arrowhead. High above SoCal. Got an unusual project - building a '95 Yamaha Seca II into a neo cafe naked bike. Sort of hoping the outcome will be akin to a Ducati Monster... sort of. This bike's a blast, but like I said, unusual for a cafe.
I made a Seca II cafe bike back in 94 when I lived in Chicago. Awesome bike.

Distinguished gentlemen's ride is in a couple months, but I think they're still getting info together for LA. I'll definitely be going.

And get your thread up! Your frame + engine was lookin slick.
 
any idea what day

im trying to figure out what day as i need to be able to request it off.

lol thanks mike, having majority of the parts new or refinished is making the build longer than anticipated as now i want EVERY single part shiney and new looking.

Oh man I'm right there with you. The struggle is real!!

It looks like it could be the 4th weekend of September, the 27th or the 28th. They're start posting more info the closer we get.
 
Anybody down in the Palm Springs/Coachella Valley area? Looking to meet up with someone who knows motorcycles and who can talk me through rejetting carbs and rebuilding a wire harness on a CB750. Thanks!
 
Anyone in Los Angeles looking for a bike? This just popped up on my craigslist feed.
