    Here are some pics of a 99 Suzuki TL1000S I'm building. I found the original bike of SF Craigslist for $1600 or $1800 (I cant remember). It was ugly as sin and painted in a drab green. Underneath the green it had one coat of plastidip and several layers of other paint. However, mechanically it...

    So I picked up a 1986 Radian 600... Basically, saw it on Craigslist for $200 with no carbs and no clutch cable, read that it was air-cooled and could do a 3.4 second 0-60 and was pretty low to the ground and was pretty easy to maintain, and went and picked it up. Strapped it in the back of my...

    Hi, new to the forum but long time biker, MX and street. I have an '03 Bandit 600S and wanted some ideas on a set of gauges and a headlight to replace the stock stuff and fairing. Looking for more of a cafe racer look. Also a tail section if you know of anything to complete that look. Thanks

    Hello All, So, I've had a two stroke fetish and a vintage bike fetish for many many years. Used to have a daily, year round rider that was a GS450 cafe racer, but was soon ready to upgrade to something faster. I started looking around for bikes. What I wanted couldn't just be any run of the...

    Hey, all you dudes, especially all of y'all on the west coast of Canada. My name is Simon, and I have a problem. Despite my bestest efforts to locate a set of USD forks in my local area, I am drawing a blank. Can't find a spare front end off a modern sportsbike anywhere. Mostly due to the...

    Hey guys, I picked up this 97 KE100 off a guy for $350. The thing ran great but the guy butchered it. For whatever reason he took the springs out and chopped the tail off....definitely was a f*ckin mess. Since insurance rates for new riders are so retarded here, I figured this would be a decent...

    Hey all, As I promised in the beginner's section, the start of 2012 marks the start of a 4-month build on my '95 Honda VFR. I bought the bike 2 years ago, all was well until I lowsided on some gravel last June (the day before I MC'd my sister's wedding). It was still rideable after that, just...
