A while back I posted some photo's of Sparkymoto's awesome Beemer cafe. To refresh your memory:

He has now build a website together with his brother that looks just as balanced and well designed as his Beemer. Really worth a visit, go check it out:

Maestro? Music! Loud music!

I had more spare parts than I knew I had, so the clutch was a quick fix tonight. Also made a brace to fix the carbs in place. They were giving some trouble and I traced it back (I think) to leaking air from the intake rubbers. I had read that the carbs can just hang in the rubbers, but apparently not. Worked like a charm, the engine runs a lot nicer. I surprized myself a bit by finding out that I had forgotten to shoot a vid since the first testrides, great excuse to go riding. Needless to see: I had a blast.

Also came across a very, very rare sight in Holland. Pretty sure there's a la that forbids having car wrecks. Not sure what to think of it, on one hand it's a waste, on they other hand it's beautiful as it is.

Ducati 800 F1 by Loudbike

O shit.....

That's not what I had in mind for my Saturday night....

I have no clue what the English name is for it, but the round thing at the end of my clutch cable broke off so it had no clutch anymore. After a moment of thinking Itook the same part off of the return throttle cable and put it on my clutch cable. It brought me home.

In tempo di guerra non si butta niente

VF 1000 R monobraccio

Grande idea modernizzare ciclisticamente una maxi degli anni '80
(come già visto più volte su queste stesse pagine);
solo il monobraccio sembra essere una nota leggermente stonata,
lasciando un po troppo spazio vuoto dietro.

Bravo Charlie

I received a mail a while back from a Kiwi (New Zealander) with questions about my BMW. He told me he was building his own BMW caferacer and I of course asked for photo's in return. The bike wasn't finished yet, but he promised me to send photo's when it was. He kept his promise. This is what he had to say:

sorry its
taken so long but this is my first build so it took time.I
had to beg borrow and sell almost all my other toys to get
to where it is today .There is still lots to do, am looking
for a set of rear sets and want to up grade the shock soon
plus a major rebuild on the motor over winter. But as it is
it rides really nice and its a total buzz to finally have it
on the road and to know that I spent all that time working
on it adds to the satisfaction..

Very well done mate!! Looks great!
