Another shop by the name of Homemademotorcycles is trying to outdo RetroridesbyLourenco. I'll just let the pics speak for themselves.

Braid them and roll them into a groin-bun for safety's sake.

I wept because I had no radials until I met a man who had no splines.

Thanks for putting that image into my head Laitch. Now I gotta figure out how to get it out. Maybe I'll just keep staring at Johnny's pretty face.

I think it's called reciprocating milk-bone suspension. The square tube link needs etching or some other decorative relief. I can visualize the assembly being used to crack open pistachios by vigorously pressing and releasing the wheel when the moto is on its centerstand. It'd be a two-person operation though.

That sports a European size 60 clown shoe. The tank is a nice effort—inspired by Edward Gorey .

At risk of being banned, c'mon guys, these are the fat chicks of the bike world.

If she were cheap enough or better yet, free, you'd give her a proper thrashin' and then deny it to all your buddies at the Saturday Coffee Shop Ride.
