    Japanese Customs Mixed Bikes

    I'll grant you underpowered and boring. But there will be toyota hilux engines running on pig fat and powering village water pumps long after civilization has collapsed.

    Anybody else have a motorcycle?

    I don't have any of these any more CBR250RR '97 I loved this little bike. Not gonna win any races against the big boys, but so fun, will surprise a WRX at the traffic lights, and is an amazing machine. 250cc, 4 cylinders the size of pencils, and 19,000rpm (not a typo). Revs like a F1 car. It...

    Bicycles with motorcycle headlights

    Doing some research for my own build. Post pics of your bikes that have motorcycle headlights on them. Extra info like what size headlight, fork spacing, battery, wiring challenges, battery life, how bright, etc. would be grand.

    Sleeping Giant

    Was a good looking bike for what it was. It's feminine without being girly, it has some "retro" sensibilities without being cheesy.

I was looking into putting apes on my mountain bike because...
