SOLD FOR USD 89,000 on May 06, 2022.

The bike was restored in dark red over a black frame under previous ownership. Equipment includes a side stand, a horn, footboards, skirted fenders, and sprung cognac leather solo saddle embellished with fringe and jeweled nailhead trim as well as a chrome luggage rack, engine guard, rear fender guard, frame guards, and center and side stands.

Wire-spoke 18″ wheels wear Coker blackwall tires. Suspension consists of a leaf-spring fork in addition to dual plunger shocks mounted on either side of the rear axle. Braking is from drums at both ends.

A chrome steering damper knob and cross-braced handlebar sit between the aluminum dash and polished headlight bucket. Instrumentation includes a 130-mph speedometer, an ammeter, a keyed ignition, a trip meter, and a five-digit odometer showing 305 miles, 10 of which have been ridden by the selling dealer. Total mileage is unknown.

The air-cooled 77ci inline-four produced 40 horsepower when new and is equipped with a single carburetor, a chrome air cleaner, Auto-Lite ignition, and a four-into-one exhaust with a ceramic coated exhaust manifold and chrome heat shield. An oil pressure gauge is mounted to the crankcase and an AGM battery with an Indian-style cover was installed by the selling dealer.

Power is routed to the rear wheel through a three-speed non-sequential transmission that is shifted using a tank-mounted hand lever on the right and a clutch pedal on the left.

The bike is titled by its engine number, DDo413, the last three digits of which match the number stamped on the frame, a photo of which can be viewed in the gallery.

Modern-Day Incarnation of Lincoln Cosmo Carrera Panamericana

By General Posts

Delightful tribute Rally Car showcases masterful rally mods

This Cosmopolitan is a modern-day recreation, made to race in the late 1990s and now boasting a significant number of accolades.

Editor’s Note:

Plus this stinkin’ Lincoln is directly connected to Bikernet.com and 5-Ball Racing.

This car brings back memories. I was a crew member/co-captain with its new owner Dr. Christian Reichardt or Doctor Hamster to you in 2005. It was originally raced in the ‘70s and the body was modified in the ‘90s. We worked on the classic mechanically and prepared the car for the 2005 La Carrera Pan Americana road race in the vintage class. We brought a 2nd Place trophy home.

The UL File Is Now Open: Episode 1

Artistic rendering of my lovely-self from my first Bike Feature in Easyriders in 1971 – Bandit

Purchase, Pegs and Paint
By Bandit with photos from the Redhead

It all started in the center of an odd South Dakota winter, 2022 and a hunt for a running Knucklehead engine. I found myself talking to several knowledgeable brothers in the industry and the price for Knucklehead engines climbed spectacularly. Hell, shit, piss, way beyond spectacular.

Steve Massicot at Paughco mentioned an old employee who needed funds and had a UL for sale. A complete bobber, although the running aspect was in question.

I remembered George Christie’s classic flathead with fatbobs. We rode to the Yuma River run in the early ‘70s.

As you know, I’m nuts and believe I can fix anything. Most bikers can, so I cut a deal, but UL Steve wanted cash….

EPA to Expand E15 Ethanol Fuel Sales into Summer

By General Posts

Following long-fought debate, the Biden Administration announced that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will issue a temporary waiver to allow for the summertime sale of gasoline with up to 15% ethanol (E15) to help address high fuel costs. Currently, E15 cannot be sold between June 1 and September 15 due to fuel-volatility concerns that higher blends of ethanol combined with warmer temperatures may lead to increased ground-level ozone formation and smog. The agency will review the waiver every 20 days to determine if remaining in place is justified.

Summertime sales of E15 has been a hot-button issue for years. The Biden Administration says this latest decision is based on its authority to pursue a temporary emergency action.

Ethanol, especially in higher concentrations such as E15, can cause metal corrosion and dissolve certain plastics and rubbers in older automobiles that were not constructed with ethanol-resistant materials and in certain specialty high-performance equipment installed on newer vehicles. SEMA opposes the expansion of E15 gasoline as a lack of clear labeling on gas pumps does not provide sufficient protection to guard against misfuelling.

Another Victory in Kansas: Law to Ease Titling Procedures for Antique Vehicles

By General Posts

Another Victory in Kansas as Governor Signs into Law Bill to Ease Titling Procedures for Antique Vehicles—Congratulations!

Another win in Kansas! Governor Laura Kelly signed into law SAN-supported legislation (H.B. 2595) to allow vehicles registered as “Antique” which are 60 years old or older the ability to forego a VIN inspection when applying for a title. The new law expands vehicles eligible for certain titling procedures by allowing Antique vehicles that are at least 60 years old needing only a bill of sale as proof of ownership and an application when applying for a title.

Prior to the new law, only antique vehicles with a model year of 1950 or earlier could forego the VIN inspection when applying for a title. Additionally, the new law recognizes that the collection and restoration of historic and classic cars is an important part of preserving the technological achievements and cultural heritage of the United States. It will go into effect upon publication in the Kansas Register statute book.

Congratulations and thank you to those who supported this effort!
