RYCA Motors CS-1 Cafe Racer

So, you want to build a Cafe Racer but don't have experience with custom had better check out RYCA Motors and their CS-1 Cafe Racer Kit for the Suzuki S40 (Savage). For $3000.00 you can purchase a CS-1 kit and according to RYCA Motors owner Casey Stevenson, all you need are basic mechanical skills and a few tools to do the conversion. Oh ya, you need a Suzuki S40 unless you want RYCA to build one for you...but that wouldn't be any fun!

Not sure this is for me, but it is a cool concept and a most interesting business model.

Back in Business!

For Christmas, I received the latest copy of Motorcyclist magazine - January 2011 edition. Being the owner of a Buell Motorcycle, one of the articles caught my interest..."Erik Buell is Back in Business. This time, Erik Buell is doing it his way."

As you may recall, I blogged about EBR Racing back in October - Buell Resurrected in Street Mode, so the interview in Motorcyclist magazine is very timely, especially if we are to see something new for Buell enthusiasts. Speaking for myself, I look forward to seeing the day when a new street legal sport bike is available from Erik Buell.

The complete interview: Erik Buell is Back in Business. This time, Erik Buell is doing it his way.

Season's Greetings to all and Happy New Year!

New Models

A "Secret Santa" in my office got me this 1/18th scale model of a 1952 Harley Davidson "K " Model, very cool! Note the Erik Buell Racing (EBR) Coffee Mug too!

This will go very nice with the 1/12th scale model of my 2009 Buell 1125R that another friend gave to me, can you see it in the lower left hand corner by my monitor?

It's only December and winter is just starting and I am already itching for spring and the 2011 riding season! For those of you who get to ride year round, ride safe and crank the throttle for me a few times.
