MORE PHOTOS AVAILABLE HERE: http://newjersey.craigslist.org/mcy/423XXXXXX.html Really cool vintage superbike 80's Yamaha Radian YX600 project with no time to finish. Bike #1: This bike had been stored in a barn for 10 yrs when I found it. It has a CLEAN TITLE!!!! I got it to run up on the bench last week. Unfortunately I just don't have time to do the full blown restoration I had dreamt of. Chrome exhaust is in really attractive shape. Tank in attractive shape. Complete set of matching light blue bodywork in box. Seat in attractive condition. Complete with all side panels. All cables work, brakes work. Lamps work. Just rebuilt carbs and installed a high flow K&N air filter. With little effort you could make this a reliable daily runner. However, with all that being said, this bike is still what I would call a project bike. It's a great candidate for a complete restoration. Bike #2 was supposed to be a donor parts bike but I couldn't resist getting it running either. Bought it for the rare four into 1 exhaust and then decided to rebuild the carbs and see what I had to work with. Ran for a few minutes on the bench just like her sister. So now I can't bear to tear her apart. Will make a really cool custom cafe racer....already halfway there with straight bars and airbox removed.Bike #3 was dismantled down to the frame and ready for the powdercoater and a complete custom rebuild. Complete motor, wheels, suspension, wiring harness, lamps, seat, instruments, airbox, exhaust and carburetor bank (all four complete). The only major component missing from #3 is a tank. No titles for Bike #2 or Bike #3. Bill of sale only. This is a PROJECT. These bikes are not ready to ride home. The chain, sprockets and tires need to be replaced. No battery included. Fuel petcock is leaking (will give you a spare unit. Rebuild kits are available on eBay for about $30. Will include an owners manual and a repair manual with sale.I am willing to deliver the bikes (and the boxes of spare parts) within 100 mis for $0.50/mile round trip. If you need a winter project that will be ready to rock this spring, this is your deal!

The problem with electric bikes...

Mon, 11 Jun 2012

This weekend sees the running of the most famous car race of them all, the Le Mans 24hrs, and to be a driver of one of the front-running cars has got to be fairly high on the list of jobs that will make ladies swoon. Speed, danger, noise, fame, physical fitness and lots and lots of money, the key elements of any top-line race series, tend to ensure that its star competitors manage to appear cool. But the latest press picture from Yamaha – publicising the firm's link with (Yamaha shareholder) Toyota's Le Mans effort – manages to strip away every last shred of of swagger from the team's drivers by plonking them on Yamaha EC-03 electric scooters.

AMA Supercross: 2012 Daytona Results

Mon, 12 Mar 2012

James Stewart gave his 2012 AMA Supercross championship hopes a much needed boost with a big win in sloppy, muddy conditions at Daytona International Speedway. Heavy rains made the Ricky Carmichael-designed track in Daytona’s tri-oval section even more difficult than the GOAT conceived, with the terrain rough, choppy and rutted. Series point leader Ryan Villopoto became an early casualty of the track conditions, sliding outon the second corner.
