    1975 Norton

    I bought an old Norton last night, no title , no key, bad seat, no side panels, fibreglass tank, it looks beat. It may be the coolest thing I have ever seen. I am not a great mechanic. I am not even a good mechanic. I think i am in over my head but i am damn excited. Here is the...

    It is common for me to work 4 months , have a month off, work another 5 months, have 3 weeks off. but this has been ridiculous. I have been unemployed since last November. I had planned to go to the Salt Flats here at the end of the month, and then sell my bike. Well, I don't get to go to...

    I work in the film industry, in the art dept. One of the first things you learn is don't use your own stuff,or it might be "altered" in an effort to get the shot.

    Rear reflector removal

    Took the reflector off, with some of the fender. The thin metal cuts like butter with a jigsaw. A little sanding, touch it up with a paint pen, wallah!

    Mileage on a Bonnie?

    Does anyone on this site have more than 50,000 miles on their bike? I thought when I bought my bike with only 4 K that I would have it rebuilt with the 904 kit at 20,000 miles. Now that I am at 17.5 I am rethinking it. At what mileage would Ya'll rebuild?

    Is anyone going to Motorcycle Speed Week this year? It's coming right up at the end of the month. Last year was my first time, and it was a blast. What's more natural than taking a Bonneville to Bonneville.
