BlueCat-Built Honda CB450 featured on BikeEXIF

We are absolutely thrilled to see my 1974 Honda CB450 K7 Supersport featured on what is arguably the most prolific custom motorcycle blog on the web. A huge thanks to Chris and the crew at BikeEXIF for considering our little Honda for their site. However, equally big thanks and kudos go to Juan F. Hernandez …

The best kind of problem to have

We’re currently overflowing with motorcycle service and restoration work, and it’s only proper that we stop and say thank you. We’re utterly swamped and we’ve been bumping up against the proverbial rev limiter on how many motorcycles we can even take in and queue up for service in the coming weeks. It’s kind of a …

Beat the rush. Bring us your little stuff.

So here’s a question: Is your machine ready for Spring? Is it really? It’s been a mild winter, but actual Spring is right around the corner. When it does finally get properly warm around here, it’ll mean a rush of people out to scratch the same itch — a rush of folks with a hundred …

On The Lift :: Robb’s CB590

For all intents and purposes, this bike started its life as a run of the mill Honda CB550.  A stock CB550, while beautiful in its original form, is capable of a stock 50 bhp at 8,500 rpm.  In a day-to-day application these numbers, when combined with stock carburetion and exhaust, amount to a modest performer …

Humble Beginnings :: The DesertCat DT360A

In most of rural America, this 1972 Yamaha DT360A would be dismissed as a “barn bike” tucked away in the back of a shed, uncovered and left to choke on a carb full of old fuel.  More than likely, it would have been used as a farm bike and eventually dismissed in favor of it’s …

The old and the beautiful

I’m going to make a confession here. I don’t really like the Honda CB750. I know it’s an icon. I know it changed motorcycling forever. I know it’s the birth of the superbike. And I know it’s a favorite platform for Japanese Cafe Racers. Still, I’m not a big fan. There’s nothing wrong with the …

The “Fast Freddie” Honda CB750. Part One.

Believe it or not, we don’t get to do frame-up motorcycle projects as often as we’d like. Our bread and butter is your standard tune up and maintenance fare. Batteries, carburetor rebuilds, chains/sprockets, tires, fork seals, brakes or all of the above — that’s our day in and our day out. Even when we pull …

Beware the privateer

Times are tough. People are doing whatever they can to try to save money. We get that. It can be tempting to cut the occasional corner to save a little cash. However, when it comes to keeping your motorcycle in working order, cutting corners will usually cost you more in the long run. This doesn’t …

The Mid-season push

It’s been a busy season so far, and things aren’t slowing down. There’s not a day goes by lately that a customer doesn’t bring us a bike for service. When you’re a repair shop, that’s the best kind of busy. Usually it’s nothing fancy, just a tune-up or a tire change, but in a way …

It’s a CB250, EH. Part three.

In part two, Jeff had gotten the CB250 fired up again after an extensive engine rebuild and reassembly. There were a few odds and ends still left to tie up, though. The original grip still had to get wrestled off the old handlebars. During reassembly, I’d spent 20 minutes and cubic yards of compressed air …
