Upgrade your grey matter 'cause one day it may matter.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

I'm glad I never bought a motorcycle project lol... it'd just be sitting next to all of the other projects I don't touch.

This might be the nicest café racer I've seen recently.

So much to like there... Little things like the stripe extending the frame member go a long way.

I guess when I think bike I generally think Suzuki GSX-R? There are a bunch of awesome examples in this thread though.

I'd totally love something with a more worn/tired/unfinished retro look with a chopper influence to it.

Imagine a biker gang with a fleet of those?

That would be the business.

Saw this amazing man on the way to Toronto the other day. It's hard to tell in the picture, but that's his beard plastered back around his face and neck. Epic.

Yes it is. A '70s CB is at the top of my list... Hayley's dad keeps pressuring me to go with him for our M licenses but there's no way I'd bother without having something to ride. There was an incredible deal on one a couple years back at a customer's shop that I shouldn't have passed on.
