Honda Honda description

This project was completed over the course of two years, no deadline, no rushing, no budget. There was a lot of time spent removing everything possible off of the frame, hiding wiring, fabbing electrical compartments and smoothing out all joints before paint. There was also a good deal of mock ups and fabrication rerouting the exhaust and creating the tail section to house the muffler. Motogadget relays and switch gear, vintage microphones housing a tail light and high intensity fog light, etc.

Here's a list of modifications:

Aermacchi gas tank and modified tail section
Tail houses Cone Engineering muffler
Vintage microphones - headlight and tail light
Frame chopped, de-tabbed, all joints re-welded and smoothed
New header with custom mid pipe
Mikuni 36mm roundslide with custom made velocity stack
Custom fabbed carb manifold
Vortex clip ons
Progressive shocks and springs
Steel-braided brake lines
Vintage Honda racing paint scheme
Ballistic battery
Motogadget switches and relays
Custom seat upholstered by New Church Moto
Modified footpegs
New controls, master cylinder and reservoirs
Turn signals mounted to passenger peg mounts

- Compact. If you're interested in this motorcycle, know that it is very compact. If your inseam is over 30" or you're over 180lbs you are going to be cramped.

Remember push starts?

Fri, 18 Nov 2011

Alongside the most stunning collection of race and road bikes at their Motegi museum, next to some race bikes, Honda also has a step by step guide on most aspects of riding. I photographed the wonderful text on push starting but I also have lots of equally hilarious instructions on cornering braking and even what a riders goal should be. Watch this space...... oh, and hopefully see you at the NEC over the next ten days!  

2013 Repsol Honda Team Livery Revealed

Thu, 24 Jan 2013

Repsol Honda revealed the livery off its RC213V racebikes and leathers of riders Dani Pedrosa and Marc Marquez for the 2013 MotoGP season. The livery is again dominated by the colors of the team’s top sponsor, Spanish oil giant Repsol, but with more white and less black, particularly along the bottom of the fairing. The Repsol logos on the sides now slope downward toward the swingarm whereas the previous design had them rising up toward the seat.

WSBK: 2012 Donington Results – Video

Mon, 14 May 2012

BMW earned its first-ever World Superbike race win at the U.K.’s Donington Park, but missed out on sweeping the round after teammates Leon Haslam and Marco Melandri crashed on the final corner while battling for the lead in the second race. Melandri earned BMW its landmark first win in Race One leading Haslam in a one-two finish. They could have repeated that finish in Race Two but Haslam low-sided after making contact with Honda‘s Jonathon Rea trying to pass on the inside.
