I don’t have anything else to say except check this fucker out! Oh, and how the hell do you sit on this thing with the expansion chambers coming out through the top of the frame!?
If you listened to our Cafe Racer Guide episode (#22) a few months ago, you know it was written by Jim March, and have checked out some of the awesome information he’s put together to help build your bike. Jim recently listened to the episode, and sent us an email. Here’s his comments on our discussion of his guide:
Recently we got an email from Simon in Australia all about his Dad’s awesome old bikes, and his work to keep one of them running. The picture above is super rad, that is his Dad on his 70’s Suzuki TS185! Below, check out a before and after shot of work on his Kawasaki F11B 250cc enduro. He did some amazing work keeping this thing on the road and making it look better than new!
I wanted to share some awesome pictures sent to us by an awesome listener Eric. Eric is a fan of the 1974-1976 Honda CB200’s. He has done an amazing restoration job on his bike and sent us some pictures.
Here is a quote from his email, which is a great tip for our recent Paint Prep episode #23:
Episode 23: Paint Prep
And…..we’re back! Hey guys, so sorry for the delay in new episodes over the last month or so. We’ve all been super busy throughout the start of the summer. RaceTech moving into new offices, Jarred & Brady working on new bikes, it all adds up. So finally we’re covering Paint Prep, a topic we’ve been asked about before. Our paint guru Brady Young covers most of the steps for paint prep, and Jared and Evan bring up some good questions. We also cover some recent emails and questions at the end.
