1971 Montesa Rickman - I took these photos the summer of 2013. This is a full restoration done by a good friends father. The quality and spirit of originality is second to none. It’s since been sold.

UPDATE: I originally posted this as a 1969. The restorer, David Kamanski, has since corrected me that’s its a 1971. He also shared with me the photo he took when he picked the beast up after sitting in a field for 15 years. I’ll let you play detective and figure out which photo that it.

Lotus C-01 - Designed by Daniel Simon, the guy who pretty much reinvented Bugatti. I think that turned out pretty well for them. Hopefully he can do the same for Lotus who’ve had their share of financial troubles. You know you have money issues whey you let your star Formula One drivers (Kimi Raikkonen) paychecks bounce. I have doubts that a limited run of 100 will turn them around

A 200hp, 1195cc engine in a sub 400lb package. So… this thing will kill you quickly, but with a smile on your face. My guess is it’s a KTM engine, the same one in the RC8 chassis. I don’t think anyone else makes a 75° V-style engine in that size.

That said, this bike is stunning. Magnificent.

1998 BMW R1100GS - Customized by Cafe Racer Dreams (CRD).

That’s a beast of a tank. I’ve seen thousands of these on the road but not stripped liked this. With no fairings windscreen the tank just stands out.

Of course the seat, round headlight, and front fender stand out to make the vintage look. But what a slick idea to stick the oil cooler high up into the airstream. This gets an A+.

1978 Honda CB400F - Built by a small garage out of Australia by the name Salty Speed Co.

I have to say I’m over the Firestones, they perform horribly and are expensive. Remove the tires, get an original airbox on her and she’s perfect. Aesthetically I love the look; especially the gray/brown combination. Every bike looks better with a brown, we’ll stitched, leather covered seat pan; prove me wrong.

2007 Triumph Scrambler - Hard to believe this Mule Motorcycle build was born this century. The converter disc to drum brakes add quite a flare of nostalgia. What’s looks to be vintage Ford tail light helps as well.

This bodes well for my love of both Scramblers and Triumphs.

Kawasaki KLR650 - No idea what year this thing is but my guess is its from the 80’s.

Now, I own one of these. A run-of-the-mill 2009 that has been a champ. It’s taken me through the ranges of Colorado and back again.

This however is something altogether. From what I can see its swapped out the 21” front tire for a 19” and done some mods for the seat. The exhaust can is also pretty custom. Wouldn’t mind a scramble on this.

'88 Honda Africa Twin 650 - Never mind the 650 thumper. This is a every KLR owners wish list (mine included). Part KTM and weighing in at 380lbs will I'm sure give you a brush with your maker at full throttle. Reminds me of the Transalp.

A Ducati Monster S2R 800 that’s been scrambled and tracked out. Pretty wild ride I’m assuming.

Sweet Thruxton by Maria Riding Company out of Lisbon, Portugal. They also make surfboards… rad.

So I purchased a motor-less bike. So far it’s been awesome. I usually get right off of this two wheeled wimp and onto a motorized two wheeled beast ASAP just to dry off the spandex.

Ducati 1098R - Seriously, Dr. Martini knows how to fabricate an exhaust.

Honda GL200 - It’s been a while since I’ve posted due to some big life changes. It’s only fitting that this should be the first bike I post back from my hiatus. The story behind it hits so close to home as of late. Please hit the link on over to Pipeburn and read the article.

Took the KLR out for a long ride yesterday. Put about 150 on the clock. Denver’s weather has been stunning, and we should hit a couple day in the 60’s this coming week. Peace & Grease, Jacob
