John of Tutti Frutti fame is selling his excellent LS2-swapped Supermade-swathed S14. If you're local and in the market you should jump on it, as we don't get cars like this up for sale on the East Coast very often.
Finally got my front suspension done. It looks like there's a slight reverse rake, but I measured it and it's dead even front and rear. The rear just tucks so much more that it creates the illusion, I suppose.
I test-fitted a Mk1 today on the front and I'm definitely going to need extended studs. I'm getting excited about the car again though, I hadn't been for awhile.
Two weeks ago I finally got something that I've been wanting for a very long time. I am now the proud owner of a C100 Honda Super Cub, I think it is a 1960.
It ran great when I bought it, and then I got it home and now it won't start. I think I probably have a bad ground somewhere, but I've been too busy with the MX73 to play with it. Did I mention that the Ruckus left me stranded also? I can't win lately.
At any rate, the bike is in very good mechanical shape and is cosmetically original. I'm going to fix my ground problem and ride it as-is for awhile. It's about 5mph faster than the Ruckus, clutchless 3-speed. Odometer says it has 23 milest, and it looks like the original odometer to me, but I'm not sure I'm willing to bet anything on it.
Here's a look at an upcoming post I'm putting together for Canibeat. This is the second Hawaiian shoot I've been involved in and there will definitely be more. Many thanks to Ethan, our photographer, for giving us such great product.
I'm sure a few of you will have already seen this, but it's an amazing video.
Shinya Kimura crafts some astonishing bikes, and this clip will speak to anyone who's spent time on two wheels. If for any reason it doesn't default to HD, be sure to change it. The video and sound quality is excellent.
