OLD YELLER: Still A Viable Street Machine

Most motorcycles in America in the early 1950s were no nonsense, kick-start only iron with few if any frills or comfort features as we have today. America’s modern super-speed interstate highway system wasn’t even a twinkle in President Eisenhower’s eye, and gasoline was less than 15 cents per gallon almost everywhere across the Unites States. Two wheeled motorcycles were economic, fair-weather transportation for those men and women who loved the sun on their face and the wind in their hair!

By General Posts

In this first chapter we delved into very nature of the gas tank, construction, shapes, sizes, manufacturing processes, mounting and materials.

“As tank shapes slipped from utilitarian to lifestyle driven components, they became the “Cherry on top of the magnificent V-twin engine configuration,” says Brad, Vice President of Design and Creative Director of Motorcycles at Harley-Davidson Motor Company.

Jack McIntyre photography: Bikes built by Johnny Mac

By General Posts

By Bandit with photos from Jack McIntyre

We started a series of stories about why we chop. They are a blast, inspirational and enlightening. This one touches on two elements of the equation. Why we chop and something about the history of the chopper.

There are two partners involved in this story and bikes. Both are partners in a Shop called Johnny Mac’s Chopper house. One was the photographer behind this feature with Chelsea, Jack McIntyre, a veteran and the other the shop boss, Johnny Mac.

Fear Rides with Motorcycling Photojournalist in WarZone

By General Posts

This is Photojournalist Kiran Ridley’s secondhand, 200 cc, Chinese-built motorcycle he relies on to get around in Ukraine. Second-language issues could be blamed for the Xplode name written on the side panel — something you don’t want your motorcycle to do, especially in a war zone.

Editor’s Note: I discovered this story on Common Thread the ZevZilla web site. I hope they don’t mind Bikernet sharing this with our readers. You should go to their site to see Ridley’s moving photos.–Bandit

Simple things at first about his motorcycle: a badly wobbling rear wheel and a high idle speed, along with the machine’s refusal to run without the choke engaged. As a motorcycle journalist, I am surprised the motorcycle is not known to me. It’s an odd 200 cc single-cylinder, four-stroke machine that “rides like shit — you are fighting it all the time,” he tells me.

The circumstances of how he acquired the machine are fascinating, as he tells me about a chance meeting with a heavily tattooed pizza delivery rider that led to a conversation and an opportunity to purchase the delivery rider’s second motorcycle. It took just a few calls, a meeting, and with an exchange of cash the deal was done. Ridley was mobile.

Event Coverage: Race of Gentlemen

By General Posts

The inaugural Race of Gentlemen was held in 2012 on the beach in Asbury Park, NJ, just days before Hurricane Sandy made landfall.

New Jersey has a storied tradition of beach racing, including an epic 1-mile beach race in Cape May during the summer of 1905.

The exhibition featured the likes of Henry Ford, Louis Chevrolet and speed record holder Walter Christie. At the time, the Cape May beach was deemed the “finest racing beach” in the world.
