Now, THAT is MY favorite kinda "skull head" ;)
What kind of surface treatment is that?
Or is it just a chunk of titanium alloy sitting in the head with the ports and plughole milled into it?
Not sure what alloy it is, but is it a press fitted or cast in chunk of metal other than aluminium that head is made from, never seen it done this way,
usually the valve seats are pressed in, but in this case the whole combustion chamber is ??? Probably something exotic. Beryllium?

1978 Ducati 900 Cafe:

Image
BIKE EXIF wrote:A couple of months ago we showed the Ducati 900 GTS custom built by René Waters, a Canadian Ducati aficionado who runs the website Ducati Meccanica. That bike was hugely popular with readers, and now René has built another 900 GTS—this time a cafe racer for his wife Sue. Here’s the story, once again in René’s own words.

This café racer started life as a 1978 900GTS, a pretty staid tourer much denigrated by Ducati enthusiasts and reporters at the time. Mostly it was the general poor finish typical of Italian bikes of the era, and the ‘standard’ styling of the bike. People were used to the road-ready race bikes that Ducati built, and felt let down by the GT/GTS range. The bikes themselves were, and are, very good machines, but were panned for their looks...

That's a hilarious photo!

My Grandad used to race hillclimbs in country Victoria in the late '20's and '30's on this '26 AJS 500:

Not sure if he saw any Kung Fu action like that, though. More than likely came off the bike in a Queensberry stance.

Deus W650 Bloodnok

Image
Pipeburn wrote:To be honest I didn't know why Deus called their latest 2005 W650 the 'Bloodnok'. So I googled it. It turns out it was the name of a fictional character from the 1950s BBC Radio comedy called 'The Goon Show'. The character was voiced by Peter Sellers and the characterture on the modified Wellington peanut tank is of Major Bloodnok. It may not be the most original Deus build, probably taking some inspiration from Bratstyle, but there's no denying it looks the business.

The frame is made of heavy gauge T45 british aircraft steel, braze welded together. The 25deg headstock is heavy duty construction for the ducati front end.

The frame has also been widened adn slightly re-shaped ( not that you could easily spot the differences) at the back to take the 190 rear tire and swingarm, there is a top frame tube running under the tank to reduce frame flex under braking.

The bare frame only weighs 7kgs

The completed dry weigh of the bike is 172kg 52% front / 48% back

He also used Honda's Unit pro-link technology, that was developed for Valentino Rossi's MotoGP bike to reduce the stress on the frame and therefore flex, as the shock unit is integrated to the swingarm and does not locate/ transmit force to the frame in an area that can not be easily strengthened on the featherbed frame. it is the transmitted stresses that casue the flex in the rear of the frame that un-settle the handling of the bike. I created a hybrid unit using a parts i fabricated, a CBR600F swingarm and parts of the pro-link unit from the latest CBR1000RR

I've seen that ducati in person on at least two occasions. The year ducati was the featured brand at british and european classic motorcycle day, and at the italian motofest in shepherdstown, wv.

It was my favorite thing there.

Darwin Motorcycles Brawler

BIKE EXIF wrote:I’ve always thought that only two US custom brands have managed to extend their appeal beyond the local chopper scene: Zero Engineering and Brass Balls. Brass Balls has made its name with stylish, big-value bobbers, but the next bike from parent company Darwin Motorcycles will be a premium model. The Brawler is due to launch next year, and the machine you’re looking at is a highly-finished prototype. It’ll be pitched as a muscle bike and there will be three models, with upgraded components to match increased prices as you go through the range. All Brawlers will run Baker drivetrains and S&S motors, but the capacities will change. You’ll get 96ci on the $23,995 base model, 111ci on the $30,995 Brawler GT, and a mighty 124ci (2033cc) on the $38,995 Brawler GTR.

Custom Ducati tracker

BIKE EXIF wrote:Despite all the expensive machinery we occasionally feature here, there’s something to be said for a back-to-the-basics classic built on a shoestring budget. And Peter Koren’s Ducati ‘XR900′ is a great example. In 2003, Koren stumbled across an abandoned Ducati 900 GTS project in the UK. The bike was a non-runner and Koren bought it to cannibalize for his 750GT and 900SS. But the GTS turned out to be mechanically sound, so he left it intact in his garage for a couple of years. After mulling over his options, he decided to turn it into a flat tracker...

And then there’s Patrick Godet of Godet Motorcycles of Malaunay in northern France, who created the machines you see here. These bikes are Egli-Vincents, and built under licence. They’re based on the 100-or-so originals produced in Switzerland by Fritz Egli in the late 60s and early 70s, and the appeal is just as strong today as it was four decades ago. Today, Godet offers two variations on the Egli-Vincent, a single-seater Café Racer model and a twin-seat Sport GT. Both use a Black Shadow air-cooled 50º V twin specification engine and weigh around 172 kg (378 lbs); the difference is mostly in the bodywork and the trim.
