I rarely take my bike to a shop for repairs, it’s like letting someone else watch my kids, no one is going to give a shit more than I do. But I ran into some electrical issues and I didn’t have confidence in my ability to accurately troubleshoot the problem. The issue was that the… Read more »

I love Dime City Cycles, I spend a lot of money with them, but here’s where you can save some money. If you’re like me and you like to have nice clean handlebars without lots of buttons and junk, you might want a car ignition style switch. And you might be interested in buying this… Read more »
If you’ve been thinking about a Mikuni upgrade for your old twin, it’s worth it. I put Mikunis on my 1978 Honda CB400. It was a wise $450 investment. The performance increase is significant. It jumps off the line. I’ve also modified my gear ratio to give me more power off the line. But now… Read more »
Whoa, check out this bad ass little 1979 Sachs Prima G3 for sale in Takoma Park, Maryland. It’s got a new motor and has been completely refurbished, said the seller. If I had an extra $1,200 and was in the market for a small knock around scoot, I’d jump on this one before it’s gone…. Read more »
Check out this 1973 Yamaha TX500 for sale in Vermont. It looks pretty nice. The seller said they’ll take $1,750, but you might be able to get it for $1,500 or less.
Yesterday I posted about this 1972 BMW R75/5. Well if you’re into BMWs here’s another R75 for sale. This one’s in Silver Spring and the seller’s asking $4,000 rather than $17,000.
So there’s this guy in Maryland, well actually Belize, that supposedly has this fully restored 1972 BMW R75/5 with sidecar and trailer. It’s sitting in a crate somewhere – I assume it’s in Maryland. He’s asking for $17,000. Apparently he moved to Belize, was planning on shipping the bike to Belize, but now he doesn’t… Read more »
There’s a pretty nice looking 1973 Honda CB350 for sale in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The seller is asking $2,500 for it. At that price, they’re looking for someone who appreciates the bike for it as a stock bike. For someone like me who’d want to chop it up, I wouldn’t go more than $1,800 for it.
Check out this stock 1977 Yamaha XS650 for sale in Reston, Virginia. The seller is totally insane to be asking $3,400. I’d go like $1,000 for this bike. I’d want to chop it up.
Maybe I’m just fucked up in the head, but I have no idea where this seller is coming up with $3,499 for this stock 1981 Kawasaki KZ100. As a basic bike, it looks perfect. It’s got low miles. It looks like it’s spent most of it’s life in a garage. But it’s still a stock… Read more »
