100% Electric Motorcycle : Brammo Empulse and Enertia Home. 1. July 2008. ROYAL ENFIELD " Custom Line " Il mondo della motocicletta come sappiamo bene è assai strano e variopinto.

July 2008

Ci sono gli assatanati della pura prestazione, gli amanti della bella meccanica, i fuoristradisti, i modaioli,i viaggiatori tritakilometri per non parlare dei "fanatici" di marca e altri ancora. Eppoi ci sono quelli innamorati di una motocicletta "antica", tutta di ferro, nata in Inghilterra molti e molti anni fa, poi emigrata in India dove è rimasta uguale a se stessa, anacronistica e sorpassata e quindi più snob e anglosassone che mai.

La ROYAL ENFIELD costruisce ,oggi, moto che non erano moderne nemmeno quando sono nate, monocilindriche 350 e 500 di potenza terribilmente modesta, telaio in tubi di concezione non proprio "racing"e sospensioni .......... si vabbè. Eppure a guardarle ci si può invaghire di questi vecchi attrezzi metallici. Questa prima "infornata", prevede una configurazione estetica da Dirt Track, con tanto di tabelle portanumero e scarico alto. MotArt: Motorcycle.

Classified Moto have already shown the way, and here’s another terrific example—this time from Greg Hageman of Doc’s Chops. It’s a 1982 Yamaha XV750, and it was built for Season Two of Discovery Channel’s Cafe Racer TV show. Hageman built a new subframe to support the lovely, wasp-like seat unit, and lowered the forks by two inches to improve the stance. There’s a Tarozzi fork brace to tighten the handling, along with Tarozzi rearsets and clip-ons for a better riding position. At the back is an adjustable, air-assisted shock and a simple Acewell unit has replaced the standard instruments. The engine internals have been left alone, but the stock Hitachi carbs have been rejetted, fitted with K&N filters and matched to a free-flowing Mac Performance exhaust.

If I was to be really picky I would say it need another 2° clockwise, but there is no guarantee that Jim drew it with 'vertical verticals'! We used to have long discussions about how to present cutaways with a bit of difference, and I remember specifically cajolling Jim into drawing the Cooper with the front wheels on full lock. I thought it worked, but Jim wasn't so sure, and although he did, I think, one more with a bit of lock, he reverted to 'straight ahead'. I never did it, thanks to Jim finding out on my behalf, he he, that straight ahead is probably best. PS. Mombaerts-race. Si d’aventure, vous assistez à une course de « classic », il y a de grandes chances que vous aller les croiser aux détours des paddocks, près de leur camion ou en train de « mécaniquer » une de leurs préparations.


Si la compétition les a animés depuis plus de trente ans, c’est vers la préparation de machines de courses et de « café-racer » que Alain et Renaud se sont désormais orientés. Pour cet article, nous allons vous présenter une des dernières productions sorties des ateliers « Mombaerts », à savoir un café-racer sur base de R100RS de 1978. C’est Renaud qui nous accueille pour une présentation et un essai de cette machine. Boxer Mag Bonjour Renaud, merci de nous recevoir pour cet essai exclusif réservé à Boxer Mag.

While you're here check out this other video produced by the same people. Obviously Italian, and really just a beautiful video of a woman riding through the countryside on another great looking motorcycle. Check out this video of Genki Hagata's recovery from a near high side. Him floating in the air for a few seconds is really surreal. Can only imagine what it was like for him. Corpses From Hell MG.
