My old tiller. What a lovely bike, that said, the ducati is better in every measurable category aside from low speed drivability.

I cannot seem to behave myself on this bike (or any other for that matter). It’s a constant internal struggle not to end up in jail. There’s something so berking intoxicating about pulling upward on that shifter without lifting off throttle gear after gear. Something about wheelieing out of 90mph corners, it’s such a savagely capabile machine, makes you feel like an absolute superhero. Also, I find it achingly pretty, every time I walk out to it, I just have to take a moment, what a privilege to have this in my life. 3k miles in and it’s been impeccably reliable too! Knock on wood!

Another one added to the ever growing fleet.  Missing a few odds and ends (some stuff that came with it not pictured here), but most of it can be robbed off a forlorn DT3 parts bike I have.  Price was right, though.  $0, with title.  cool

I've been riding my 40yo Honda to work every day for the past week and loving every bit of it!

Yep, by replacing every component of the charging system. Works great now.

My parents are selling their house and began the process of sorting, throwing away and packing up 50+ years of “stuff” they’ve accumulated. While going through thousands of old pictures, mom found this one. Should be around 1972. Dad on his Honda XR175, me in the middle on my Yamaha JT-60 and my brother Joel on an Evil Kneivel electric trike.

I bought a brand new DT360 for trail riding when they first came out. It wasn’t that fast compared to the detuned Suzuki TM's that a lot of my friends had but there weren’t many places they got that I couldn’t. My last street legal bike since I then had a few years off playing with rally cars and then came back to Trials.

Yamaha TY175, 1976. Final stages of reassembly after a "Dulux Overhaul". No real changes made mechanically but removed 2kg of unwanted frame and bracketry. It's still 45lbs heavier than the two in the background though. This pic was taken in 2015, the old girl is looking a bit the worse for wear now after 4 years. I'm just negotiating the purchase of another frame and I plan to lengthen the swing arm and do some other frame mods to save more weight and make it easier to ride.

 

Second Classic event after the overhaul. Badly outnumbered by all the TL Hondas. Note the Kawaskai KT250 in the foreground.

In among the trees, it was a bit tight in there, good thing I had shaved 80 odd mms off the handlebars.

 

I hate artificial stuff but this one was quite fun.

I built up my Brother In Laws old Carbon Bikes direct bike into a single speed.  He took all the SRAM eTap stuff off of it for his Ridley Helium.

 

I put a square taper bottom bracket in it, with a 50/34 chainring set. Put some old wheel set on with a single cassette with a ton of spacers.  Miss matched brake set 105/RSX.  That's a Fazik saddle....

This is how I spend my winter days.   TACX Neo Smart with Zwift.

 

That's an old Trek 1220 frame with some Sram Force/rival crap.

After racing an Italian Husky (Cagiva) for the last 7 years I sold it while it was still worth something, and for only a little more money was able to get a brand new 2018 YZ125. It's a decent bike and parts are inexpensive and available. I did the suspension, pipe and plastics in the first week, and will do some engine and carb work over the winter.

Santa Cruz Mountains. Not that far lol. 
It’s got no key and no title but it’s been in my garage for 10 years and someone else’s back yard for god knows how long before that, so I’m sure it’s out of DMV’s system - shouldn’t have any back fees.( Shouldnt!)
Engine turns by hand, Er, foot. I really haven’t done anything with it beyond looking inside the rusty tank and moving it out of my way. 
I’ll take $1000 for it, you come get it, bill of sale only. 

E36 M3.  I just found this during a bored, windy sunday.  You don't still have it, do you?

I got the garage cleaned up, and snapped a few pictures of my two wheeled collection!
