The Other Two-Wheeled Conveyance!

Show your motorcycles, if you have them!

I am on my way to building my first. (Cross country on a fixed gear not so feasable!)

Here are mine-by the way-nice bikes above.I would guess that there are lots of motorized 2 wheel owners here.
1980 YAMAHA SR500 Kickstart only with lots of port-engine work
1983 VT500 Honda Ascot-shaft drive v-twin-water cooled-sweet little bike.
They both look like crap now-I need to detail-wax etc.Our Tobacco road -Catholic south louisiana not quite redneck ambience-New Orleans-is obvious here-tomato plants,overgrown backyard,3 parts bikes,truck cap etc.Most of this stuff isn't visible-I hope.
Thanks.Charlie

Sweet ride! One of my buddies has a newer Tiger, and is on a trip from Chicago to New Orleans now. He rode it down there last year before Katrina, and it should be interesting to hear the differences in the trips when he gets back.

My 84 BMW R100 Last Edition. Satisfies my need for a bike without pedals. I found this one in the news paper classifieds a few months ago for $1500. It had 6,500 orignal miles on it. The best bargain I've ever found!!

Gee Bee you gotta give more information. Is that a alternator or a motor? Do you have any plans for some solar panels or is it for local cruises only? Sweet!

I just picked this up last week...

78 Yamaha XS400, a neat little UJM to knock around local with. Needs a little love, but the price was right

Well, I still have the rolling frame anyway (motor mounts altered to fit a 125 Suzuki engine rather than the 100cc rotary valve). Frame is a Van Tech ca. about 1967. First shot was a motocross at Startup, WA. Second was indoor short track on the polished concrete at the old Seattle Coliseum (now Key Arena), both about 1970. - No. plate 777

Beg to differ

Kent Peterson did it on a single speed rigid steel Redline Monocog, though he did it North to South, see here. He was also "racing" the great Divide Race, although not in the Lance Armstrong kind of way. So, yes, it can and has been done. Don't know if it's been done fixed, but it's been run single speed.
