a good tire/rim wesbite

found a good chart to show what width tires should fit on what width rims

messed around with the cabr on the bsa a little bit it idling alright.i think i need to go up a jet on the idle though..or get rid of this finicky amal and get a flat slide.

Kurse's 360...updated

Drake just fabbed these pipes up the other day for Kurse's 360 cafe' bike.  Looks pretty titties to me.


I just got my new hardtail in the mail yesterday so I threw that bitch on as soon as possible.  I dig it.  You be the judge.  Once I figure out some spacing issues, it should be good to go.

A Treatise on the Importance of Smoke
by Joseph Lucas
Positive ground depends on proper circuit functioning, which is the transmission of negative ions by retention of the visible spectral manifestation known as "smoke". Smoke is the thing that makes electrical circuits work. We know this to be true because every time one lets the smoke out of an electrical circuit, it stops working. This can be verified repeatedly through empirical testing. For example, if one places a copper bar across the terminals of a battery, prodigious quantities of smoke are liberated and the battery shortly ceases to function. In addition, if one observes smoke escaping from an electrical component such as a Lucas voltage regulator, it will also be observed that the component no longer functions. The logic is elementary and inescapable!

The function of the wiring harness is to conduct the smoke from one device to another. When the wiring springs a leak and lets all the smoke out of the system, nothing works afterward.

Starter motors were considered unsuitable for British motorcycles for some time largely because they consumed large quantities of
smoke, requiring very unsightly large wires.

It has been reported that Lucas electrical components are possibly more prone to electrical leakage than their Bosch, Japanese or American counterparts. Experts point out that this is because Lucas is British, and all things British leak. British engines leak oil, British shock absorbers, hydraulic forks and disk brake systems leak fluid, British tires leak air and British Intelligence leaks national defence secrets. Therefore, it follows that British electrical systems must leak smoke. Once again, the logic is clear and inescapable.

In conclusion, the basic concept of transmission of electrical energy in the form of smoke provides a logical explanation of the mysteries of electrical components - especially British units manufactured by Joseph Lucas, Ltd.

sporty shit

if i put some xlcr body work on it,i would have a hell of a clone! the rearsets dont work with the kicker though..i have been draggin my ass on it,but i know a guy who has the complete stock siamese exhast for cheap.i am going to finally pick it up this spring

i think the stock version of andy's bike is chillin in the back of this photo

Makes me laugh every time. Tail of the Dragon

some random shit that has to do with cycle laws

"Proponents of lane splitting state the Hurt Report of 1981 reached the conclusion that lane splitting improves motorcycle safety by reducing rear end crashes.[22] Lane splitting supporters also state that the US DOT FARS database shows that fatalities from rear end collisions into motorcycles are 30% lower in California than in Florida or Texas, states with similar riding seasons and populations but which do not lane split.[35] No specifics are given about where this conclusion is found in the FARS system. The database is available online to the public.[36] The NHSTA does say, based on the Hurt Report, that lane splitting "slightly reduces" rear-end accidents, and is worthy of further study due to the possible congestion reduction benefits."

hell yeah!

love at first sight!

why dont women like this live around here? stolen from the chop cult hot babe thread
