BCM Hell On Wheels Entry?

The Hell On Wheels dirt biking funfest is only a week away & we were having no luck finding the YZ I wanted so we figured we better just find a bike and get going.
So today I picked up a 1980 Suzuki RM125 from its original owner, Greg.
Greg is claiming the bike was a 13th birthday present from his Dad and he only it rode as a Saddleback park trail rider.
Bob and I are going to get into it over the weekend & although the entire bike is not in too bad of shape don't expect miracles (Marshall), but I'm anxious to see what comes of it.

Driving All Over Again Today.

Ceppie Maes Sturmey Archer & The Freestyle Forum

Campagnolo Motorcycle Hub?

I picked up this front 36H Campagnolo motorcycle hub the other day.
A quick clean up exposed the Camagnolo quality, however I can't seem to find any history.
Does anyone know anything about it?
Moped, small race bike?

has been on fire lately

Taillight R escue

This taillight was the result of a slow Saturday from a few years back & it's finally found a home.

Commando Inventory.

I've been half heartedly collecting bit's & pieces for this bike for 5 years.
It's nice to find stuff I forgot I had.

Special 79

I called Jay with an idea for the tank that I was thinking of for that Triumph project we were supposed to be working the next choppapalooza.
Add some help from the crew a Lowbrow and Jay had a mustang tank and FMA filler kit.
Next thing you know my vision is sitting on my bench.
One day I'll get it mounted.
Thanks Jay

It's Moto Wednesday!

It's moto Wednesday & that means pounding out a lot of frustration at the track.
Lately it's been the only way I keep my sanity.
The photo is the legendary Carlsbad uphill.
I could never decide which took more out of you that long whooped out uphill or the white knuckle high speed downhill that followed.
The 20 Minuet + 2 lap motos didn't help.
