"Spark plug socket for a kicker" he says... If this were Dozer's bike, I think we got a new idea... you listening out there? :mrgreen:

that is a GREAT flickr set btw. HUUUUGE resolutions.

Pretty sure it's the guard for a desktop tower case fan! Might be a little obtrusive.. but I also think it looks pretty dang cool, like WWII aircraft cool.

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.

First Look: NCR Millona M16
A carbon and titanium beauty based on a Ducati Desmosedici, but offering so much more (and less).

By John Burns

Giorgio Nepoti and Rino Caracchi started something special when they formed NCR and turned out their first Ducati special more than 40 years ago, an excellent tradition that lives on in the form of their firm's latest creation, the NCR Millona 16. NCR is right down the street from Ducati, in San Lazzaro di Savena—an industrial part of Bologna that sounds nicer than it is. You can almost picture the lunch: Say, what you gonna do with all those Desmosedici motors you got lying around? Dunno. Take one! And pass the breadsticks...

When it comes to an engine like this desmodromic V-Four, less bodywork is more: The M16s abbreviated carbon-fiber frame and fairing show off the 200-plus horsepower MotoGP-derived beast in all its titanium/magnesium glory. NCR has always been about power-to-weight, and for this machine it's decided to go ahead and just whack the ball out of the park: Without fuel, NCR says the M16 weighs 319 pounds—that's about 6.6 pounds less than the current 326-pound MotoGP minimum. That's incredibly light.

The M16's carbon-fiber frame/swingarm are NCR's own design, complete with improved airflow to the engine through the steering head. The fuel tank, fairing, subframe/tail, fender and wheels are all carbon as well. All mechanical parts, says NCR, are either titanium or aviation-grade aluminum.

NCR has been known for is partnership with titanium experts Poggipolini (Ferrari Formula One's supplier of choice) but the recent acquisition of an ultra-high-grade carbon-fiber company has given NCR access major expertise in this arena. Expect more from them, and for proprietary c-f wheels to grace customer M16s.

"The final product is slicker and lighter than what we anticipated," said NCR's Joe Ippoliti. "For example, we anticipated the exhaust to weigh 7.8 lb. but after some work, the final exhaust including springs is 5.2 lb. Ducati OEM is 21 lbs. The same goes for our new wheels. The quality of the carbon fiber is unrivaled in the motorcycle industry and we hope people will see the difference."

Suspension is lifted directly from the Harley-Davidson Iron 883 Sportster, just kidding!! Naturally, you wouldn't be caught dead on this thing with anything but the latest, top-line Ohlins GP suspenders, tuned in-house by NCR Corse. An FGR000 43mm inverted fork (with adjustable offset triple clamps) and a TTX ride-height adjustable shock carry this oh-so-light load. Brembo monobloc brake calipers work on ultra-light Brake Tech Axis ceramic-composite discs.

The latest in NCR-developed electronics are also part of the package: traction control, data acquisition and recording, and real-time fuel remapping should be enough to keep the NCR Millona 16 in the fast group at any track day; you just have to hope it won't require Casey Stoner skills to keep it between the curbs! An AIM MXL Pista dash relays pertinent info to the rider.

Paint and graphics, should you wish to hide any of the gorgeous carbon weave, are wide open and NCR says the bike will be produced only upon request, price "TBA." Interested? Place your order at www.ncrfactory.com. Bring lire...

Yeah, that NCR is so fine, but exclusive to the Brad Pitt/Tom Cruise biker buy out types ("I got my Desmo first!"). Anyway, from Asphalt and Rubber is a pretty cool Motard by Moto Morini. I dig the Streetfighter esque lights and overall look of it . .

and that lil Honda sure is sweet! Nice touches all around. I like the black spokes, the cool speedo cover and sparkplug wrench kicker. Real clean and subtle work. Very very nice

RSD KTM Cafe Racer


Image
Roland Sands Design (RSD) recently posted these 'almost finished' pics of their latest creation on their site – the classic paint job is yet to be done. Turning a KTM 530 into a café racer might not be the most practical build, but I do love the look of it. The bike has the very distinctive RSD styling but the one thing I personaly don't like is the left-over KTM plastic underneath the new gas tank. Here's what RSD say about the bike: "What started life as a 530 Motocross bike was transformed into a no frills mid way custom somewhere between a café racer, a super single and a motocross bike...

BIKE EXIF wrote:You don’t always need exotic underpinnings or titanium sidestands to take home a trophy at a bike show. ‘Rat Racer’ has just won its class at the Biker Fest in Udine, Italy, and it’s based on nothing more exotic than a Royal Enfield Bullet 350. The Bullet is a stone-age air-cooled thumper—cast iron—and one of the few motorcycles still in production with front drum brakes and a right-foot gear shift. But with an anemic 20hp available from the stock engine, those brakes will not be taxed too hard. It’ll be a fun machine to ride and it looks remarkably good—good enough to hold its own against some very expensive competition. So full credit goes to builders Michele Gamberini and Breska of Alambiccus Garage, who were assisted by renowned custom builder Roberto Totti. Totti has built more than one Enfield 350 in his time, and it looks like his advice was well-heeded. Check out the Alambiccus blog, and Roberto Totti’s own (new) blog is worth a visit too, as well as his website. [Via the always excellent Rocket Garage.]

After grabbing attention with their retro BMW-inspired Sportster custom, they’ve created one of the tastiest XS650-based bikes we’ve seen for a while. The ‘Heritage Special’ reprises the monochromatic look, with sleek, perfectly judged bodywork—note the lovely curved panels under the bobber seat. The frame modifications accentuate the chunky, 654cc parallel twin motor and the gently flared exhaust system adds a low-key elegance...

BIKE EXIF wrote:There’s something about a big-block Moto Guzzi that lends itself perfectly to the creation of a stripped-down, brutal café racer. ‘Ferro Negro’—Black Iron in Italian— is based on a 1981 1000 SP and it was built by Andrea Viganò of Bruciato Garage in Bergamo, Italy. There’s nothing subtle about this bike, with matte black paint throwing attention onto the huge finned V-twin cylinders. The SP was a rusted-out wreck when Viganò bought it, so he used his spare time during the cold Alpine winter to create his vision.

Just pretty and classic:

Ducati 200 Élite

Image
t’s been too long since we’ve featured vintage Italian machinery. And then I stumbled across this jaw-dropping shot of a Ducati 200 Élite from 1962. To my eyes, it’s the perfect post-War motorcycle, and I’m not surprised to learn that it was a huge success when it appeared in 1958. The 204cc bevel-driven motor is simply a bored-out version of Ducati’s contemporary 175cc thumper—but it was good enough for 18bhp and 144kph (90mph), because the bike weighs a mere 105kg (230 lbs)...

In the early 90s, the 750SS was Ducati’s entry-level exotic—a “parts-bin special” that married the 900SS chassis with a motor related to the 1979 Pantah 500. Today, most owners resist the temptation to modify a 750SS , apart from a little tuning and exhaust tinkering, but not the Danish owner of this well-used 1995 machine.
