Bosozoku Bike Update – Vote Early Vote Often!

Got the email today that the online voting for the Deus Ex Machina Boundless Enthusiasm Bike Build Off 2015 has started. As you may remember I built a Japanese Bosozoku style 1980 Honda CM400, as a satirical response to the “cafe racer” style that has become popular (especially online). A cafe racer used to be […]

Dug These Out of the Dust & Debris, Finally

I’ve been putting a decent amount of time and effort into getting my garage and projects into some kind of order. Saturday I finally dug the last 2 bikes out of the garage. First I had to put the 1971 Husqvarna CR400 back into race ready trim, since I had succeeded in making it run […]
