BIKE PR0N FTW -- The Thread for Moto Pr0n

The place to come if you've been with us for years or it's your first time here. General yakking about anything motorcycle related. Think of it as the internet coffeehouse for the UTMC.

Quite.
This is way prettier than anything with an 80 y.o. suspension layout has any right to be.

...or so I thought!

Upon closer inspection (and, for a change, before posting, so I don't have to jump down the edithole like I usually would).

THAT'S A FLIPPIN MONOSHOCK-SWING?!

And just because it wouldn't be me if I didn't find another thing I wanted to say only after debauchery.

That there is design-talent. It's style and, dare I say it, art.
Yes, yes, I know, making so much effort just for the pretty and to actually hide modern technological features behind antique lines, just for the sake of looks, what a waste, yadda, yadda.
I don't give a fuck. Not a hoot, nor a holler, and certainly not a shit.
The skill to make this. The sheer, brute, armor-piercing, trans-lunar-injection, mad skill. To make that look like it does. Even to just conceive it. And not just to conceive it, but to realize it, the way it was realized here.
Mad props. Long time since a custom bike has made me feel all funny like this does.
If there were absolutely anything to be afraid of, don't you think I would have worn pants?

Back when I read a number of potatoist vintage-bike rags, the Quickly would be mentioned in some place in every issue of any of those that I'd read. That thing was like the Volkswagen Beetle of two-wheeled transportation. An utterly unreasonable number of them had been made, and sold, and ridden. Near indestructible (by the standards of the time), easy to operate, and with the step-through for women wearing dresses (obviously, women wearing pants were unmentionable in those days). The sort of thing that'd be at every single vintage bike show, and in some number.
If there were absolutely anything to be afraid of, don't you think I would have worn pants?

^^^Jeebus!!

It looks a very little familiar. In the 1990s or thereabouts, there was a glorious nutjob in Australia building V8 cycles based on Yamaha fours, with a trellis-ish frame that this here reminds me of.
Didn't have all the horsepower, left a few for everybody else, unlike this greedy bugger. So now I want to make sure I'm not having a false memory. To the googles!

But reading a bit, I'm relieved.

It's a good thing I'm relieved about that, because I'll be busy the rest of the day, worrying about having had to look up the spelling for "relieved". :o

Maybe the dulcet tones of Mr. Drysdale's 750 V8 will bring me relief about my inability to spell the verb form thereof:

While searching for the same, this one came up, also.
It dare say, the Drysdale sounds better, to my ears. Modern muffler make magnificently melodious motorcycles much more mundane.

I only rode an Enfield on a test ride but it was enough to convince me I don't want one. It doesn't have enough ass to get out of its own way -- especially compared to the Scouts. It's not highway-worthy, at least not around here.

"Slow bike" is one thing, but "fucking anemic" is another. Aggroton had/has one and seemed to ride the hell out of it, though I don't think I ever heard him say it was especially quick.

Then again, it was one of the 500cc Bullets. Dunno what this weird twin could do.

650 interceptor, 47Hp instead of 27 for the bullet. You'll probably want to keep your socks on. Funny to see Enfield struggle to access the hipster neoretro wave while being shredded by triumph and others modern makes.

Quite honestly, I think that PoS 'Zuk Savage that I hotted up for Mishka some years ago could smoke a stock Enfield Bullet. I'm curious to see what the twin does, but don't have high hopes.

They do, however, hit the "genuine retro experience" much better than the new Triumphs, Guzzis, etc... if you want a motorcycle from 1951. :shock:

Possibly, even probably. The engine isn't nearly as batshit powerful so you won't wind up just spinning the wheel so much. It's also a lot lighter IIRC.

That, and it's probably more rugged when falling over and easier to repair with duct tape and bailing wire. :shock:

Honestly if you want a "Genuine Retro Experience" that's actually half-ass reliable, get an ironhead Sportster. They are dead simple to work on, and provided the engine doesn't have loose chunks of metal floating around inside from PO abuse, a little bit of carb cleaning and tuning will get even the ugliest ones down the road with zest but still with enough "WTF was that noise? Why did it just stumble right then? Was that detonation or a stuck valve" anxiety to tickle anyone's tingle. Avoid the magneto-equipped early models, IIRC about 73-74 is when they changed to a much more reliable generator charging system. Kick-starter or electric leg is up to you.

Well, Cyprus, the parts that aren't depopulated no-go zones, isn't exactly known for its Autobahns. But I believe it does have a number of lovely hills, with the twisties and all that.
So this guy wanted a bike he could dart around them twisties with. While he also, for whatever reason, loves the shitpump engine. Friend of mine (lost contact a bit, I'm afraid), he can afford getting the latest and fastest, or fanciest. But he just fell in love with the CX before he even got his license. Got license. Bought a CX. Loves it to bits. Last time we spoke, that was the only bike he had, and he was very happy with it, didn't seem he fancied anything else. It's a slightly unusual engine, not quite like a Guzzi, be definitely not quite like other Hondas, either. Did they even make any other OHV engines, like, ever?

So the engine can't quite get to the speeds where going around turns requires the fancy suspension. Doesn't mean that having the fancy suspension won't be helpful, still. Or may just feel better, going around the turns as slow as this may go.

Or what the heck. The guy loves his CX. And he wanted quality bits on it. Sometimes, it's nice to just have something that's just nice. Real quality. Something that wasn't designed to a price, but to perform. Not made from the cheapest stuff that will do the job, but from what's gonna do the job really well.
In the 1970s, Honda in particular built a bunch of bikes that had way more engine than chassis, the rubber bits couldn't keep up with the go bits. No fun.

In contrast to that. Having a bike that can be thrown around the twisties like it had come off the production line last week. Modern as fuck. Utter overkill, as you point out.
But with an engine from before modern emissions legislation. That gets to be loud, stinky, generally antisocial (or as antisocial as a Honda engine is gonna get). Making a big smelly hubbub like it's 1978, but handling like she's from 2018.
That actually sounds like fun.
