The FORCE

... is very strong in this one. Built by Billy Budde's from san Leandro, CA. Great idea for paint I must say, the marbelizing effect is great, looks like "Vreeble"..



Ofcourse it's on the cover!

In progress!



Been working therapeutically on this little shitkicker ;-) it's a Yamaha XS400, with parts I had laying around or got from friends. It should be a nice low budget tracker bike soon. It feels good to dick around with a cheap little scoot like this again, it has been a while! There is some stuff to do before it's ready though, still needs wiring, upholstery, a bracket here and there and a tune up. Hope to have it ready for spring
And the FXR is up next!

Bellissimo!

"The Marauder" by HawgHolic!


Awesome use of parts throughout, there is so much cool stuff to see, awesome rear wheel, fender + struts rule, Alphabet headers are rad and the complete frontend kicks ass too! And a perfect slim flame job really set it off. Did I mention that I really like this bike, therefore it gets classed in the elusive "most awesomest bike ever" label below this post!

Tuesday Tankday


The Jagdpanzer IV, Sd.Kfz. 162, was a tank destroyer based on the Panzer IV chassis built in three main variants. As one of the casemate-style turretless Jagdpanzer ("Hunting tank") designs, it was developed against the wishes of Heinz Guderian, the inspector general of the Panzertruppen, as a replacement for the Sturmgesch├╝tz III (StuG III). Guderian objected against the needless, in his eyes, diversion of resources from Panzer IV tank production, as the Stug III and Sturmgesch├╝tz IV were still more than adequate for their role.

It's weekend

Sit back and relax


Crazy Frank Friday!

WhAAAATTT! the same bike as the last Frank Friday you say!?
no no no boys and girls, on the last Crazy Frank post here came the reply of Joe and Holly with this added pic of their bike! It is so similar its creepy! One is from Denmark and this one below is from the States
The minor differences are the rear wheel, round versus square swingarm and a sissy bar. That seems about it!

Year of the dragon

How many dragon bikes does the world need!??

It's hard to miss the flamed rear end, but stuff like the front rockers and the radial spoked front wheel are really neat
 
Marvelous color pic with dreamy lady, hijacked from Satans Crate blog

I'll bet this piece of motorcycle is a re-incarnation of either one dragon bikes seen above (or maybe it is all 1 bike through the decades!) And ofcourse there is always some #$%^& that has to "improve" something and tend to go overboard. "If you can doesn't mean you should!" kind of thing!
