The Return of the Cafe Racers

The Greasy Blog VISUAL GRATIFICATION ze craignos monstercycles speedbirds southsiders Sideburn site design by Kardesign rouserworks Ottonero mulligan machine Mac Motorcycles Mac Motorcycles are powered by the Buell® single cylinder, air-cooled, 2-valve, push rod, 492cc, 5-speed 'Blast' engine. They're called "thumpers" and with good reason, with one combustion for every 720° of crankshaft rotation when that cylinder fires, it's really an "event". Valve adjustment is automatic, using hydraulic lifters. The transmission is down low giving a low centre-of-gravity that helps great handling. The fuel is enriched en route to the pot. Stock motors produce 34 HP at 6500 RPM but a bolt-on big-bore kit (515 cc), Andrews Cams, a Mikuni HSR 42 carb', Screamin' Eagle ignition and a Supertrapp exhaust will produce around 50 HP at 7200 RPM. *Buell is a registered trademark of H-D Michigan, Inc.
