Just a matter time before all of BCCM shows up in this thread. Always nice bikes sir.
Haha...thanks Cuff. We are everywhere!
Here's my Baby 1968 Suzuki T500 Cobra, I just finished cleaning here up a little bit. Don't worry I have the original fenders they are in better condition chrome wise than these fenders from a 74' t500, the thing is though when I purchased the bike the front fender was a bit tweaked so these are temporary till my originals get refinished and as for the front tweaked.
Got the Vermont Back-Roads Bomber up to Vermont, and went for a little "early spring" ride on Friday... temps in the seventies (well, at the bottoms of the gap roads!)
I believe this is a 1942 Harley Davidson WLA Miltary.
Dad (In picture) had just repaired the front wheel that some guy tore up while hot dogging and was afraid he’d loose his strips if his Commander found out. Dad fixed it for him, no charge. Commander never found out or at least didn’t let on if he did. Good Karma or what ever you like to call it. The hot dogger was strong swimmer and saved Dad a month later when he was being drug out by a rip tide.
Love it! Don't you wish you had that bike right now.
like me a Bad Buffalo
is that thing a 2 smoke? BAD ASS!
Yep.... Nothing like a worked over 750 2T triple......hehe
Yep its a Smoker. I finished the project summer of 2012.
Below are 2 short videos of the Jemco chambers screaming down the road if you like to listen to two strokes. Second video is a on board perspective taking the buffalo into the red. Bad Buffalo likes the red.
Quick Stats: Bike motor is rebuilt high compression, ported, with base plate running Keihin 34mm oval slide carbs and electronic ignition. Suspension is all Suzuki with GSXR swinger, Busa front end with Busa 17" wheels and 6" rear wheel out back. Oh, and rear shocks are ZRX.
There is much more but I will start a thread on the build so as not to take up too much space here.

Bad Buffalo From the cock pit
Dude that is awesome! I know where one is sitting in BAD shape for $250 but most of it is there...love the old smokers!
Nice ride! I like the suspension mods. Love the old 2 strokes, long time H2 guy. Have you checked your tach calibration? It sounds like it's about 1500 low when reading 7500. Then again, my ear could be out of calibration!
Cheers, keep smokin'!
Yes I verified the tach calibration with a Trailtech that I temporarily mounted, but do not like it permanently in place of the vintage gauge. Gosh, if it were 1500rpm low that would be something.... and result in some smoldering pistons and cracked skirts at 9000RPM.
The jury is still out on the gauge setup though, as I may switch over to lighter electronics and make it very clean and minimalistic. I am torn about this since I think the OE gauges provide the vintage/modern blended look that I like. On the other hand I can save more weight and make it look cleaner??? Undecided.
Love the Kaw H1 & H2, they are beasts!
Now that is a bike!
Don't make 'em that beautiful anymore.
Lots of good riding to you Ben!
Yes, that is a great example of a classic touring machine. Gotta love it.
