I think this is Sportster based. Not your average aluminum body.
1934 Henderson Dreamliner
Triumph Rocket 3 The frontend is not my cup of tea but the bike is incredibly well done. Wow!
Honda RC 115 50cc racer
Check out those front brakes.
I love the little multis Honda was making to challenge the big boys in the 60s.
A 50cc 4-stroke twin with gear driven cams, 4-valve heads, 15hp @ 20k rpm, 9m speed gearbox, and the whole thing weighs less than 50kg dry.
Won the championship in 1965 by winning 5 of 7 rounds.
Besides being just incredible machines they were works of art.
Honda Sabre VF750 cafe , really done bike
Dual sport tires to go with the lowered suspension and no front fender
Super low clip ons with foot pegs in stock position to provide optimal ergos
Amazingly the frame is intact and the seat was never a skateboard... but maybe that will change when he gets around to adding a chain and tail light.
Maybe he'll put the front tire on the right direction too.
Which scaled up into the 125 5 cyl:
it looks good to me...I would ride it! The low bars and stock peg position actually should work on that bike. I too am glad he didn't chop the frame or put on a stupid flat seat. It's most of the way toward being a decent cafe bike. I like his choice in tires too, and I am way too old to be a hipster!
i cannot believe anybody would foist off that idiotic ,unsafe top triple tree .no clamp. lashup
cogidiot moto uses a single cotter to secure the upper fork tubes
not that multiple cotters would be better lol
yes a cotter like on an old bsa kicker lever or an old bicycle crank
it is simply impossible for it to have any where near the security that an actual correctly designed clamping lashup has especially when you consider it will just ruin the top of the tube mashing the threads in the tube and fork cap if you were to try to make it be somewhat secure
it just goes to prove having some machine tools does not make a motherfucker a designerfor you youngins thjs is a cottterd crank for a bicycle its a wedge forced into contact with nut pulling into interference ,nothing more or less
but at least the bicycle is using a locating slot to bed the cotter and it is all solid steel
every time i see a rear tire that will absolutely slam into a seat ,frame tube whatever i just want to beat the stupid fucker to a pulp with a rusty oldsmobile tailpipe ,then take up a collection to have the hands of the offender chopped off surgically
thanks for posting that
i had never seen one close up,man that little heater is just overflowing with awesome
the rim brakes ? i can imagine a team rider/racer being benched for causing any heat at all to be made by them.....im thinkin one false twitch and the pilot needs to row the shifter back 3 or seven cogs to stay on song, PINNED
Real cafe racers from the sixties. A world away from the modern perception of cafe racers
them 2 fellas sure got some ugly stick beaten birds, eh ?
