BMW K75 Alpha Racer

Designed by Doruk Erdem as a Bonneville Salt Flats racer, it was built by Mark Atkinson. The donor bike was a BMW K75, a factory bike introduced in the United States in 1986 sporting a 3-cylinder engine with a balance shaft and shaft rear drive, and produced until 1995. Obviously, it now features an entirely different frame, a turbo, a reworked shifter, new steering and brakes and beautiful art-deco style fairing with BMW kidneys. Need to see it perform on the Salts.

Don’t Be A Victim And Catch A Crook

This a warning to everybody working in the motorcycle industry. An individual, supposedly French citizen, calling himself alternatively Pierre Dubois or Pierre Müller and possibly other aliases, pretending to be a journalist of well known print or digital custom motorcycle magazines in the US and Europe, contacts industry vendors to get free parts and samples to be tested then featured in “his” magazine.

Sometimes, he pretends to be about to launch or to work for the foreign edition of a current magazine that you know or work with, even when this edition doesn’t exist. Some major vendors of the industry have been duped, sending all types of parts to this guy with delivery at a US or French postal address. Of course, it’s a scam with the parts probably destined to be sold for a 100% profit or maybe used for his own custom motorcycle project(s).

First, nobody at the Cyril Huze Post has ever solicited free parts to be tested with the promise to feature them in our magazine. Second, I would recommend to all vendors to never send anything to a person you don’t know personally as being a journalist employed by a magazine you know well, and without contacting first the Chief Editor and verifying that the address of delivery is a true business address, not a PO Box. On the following page, an example of the way Pierre Dubois/Muller contacts vendors of the industry to get free custom parts. Continue reading ‘Don’t Be A Victim And Catch A Crook’

Joke Of The week

Three golfing partners died in a car wreck and went to heaven. Upon arrival they discover the most beautiful golf course they have ever seen. St. Peter tells them that they are all welcome to play the course, but he cautions them that there is only one rule: Don’t hit the ducks during your first three months here.

The men all have blank expressions, and finally one of them asks, “The ducks? “Yes”, St. Peter replies, “There are thousands of ducks walking around the course, and if one gets hit, he quacks, then the one next to him quacks and soon they’re all quacking to beat the band. It really breaks the tranquility, and If you hit one of the ducks, you’ll be punished, Otherwise everything is yours to enjoy.”

Upon entering the course, the men noted that there were indeed large numbers of ducks everywhere. Within fifteen minutes, one of the guys hit a duck. The duck quacks, the one next to it quacked and soon here was a deafening roar of duck quacks.

St. Peter walked up with an extremely homely woman in tow and asks, “Who hit the duck?” The guy who had done it admitted, “I did.” St. Peter immediately pulled out a pair of handcuffs and cuffed the man’s right hand to the homely woman’s left hand. “I told you not to hit the ducks,”, he said. Now you’ll be handcuffed together for eternity.” Continue reading ‘Joke Of The week’

A Call To Action Against Motorcyclist Profiling

A Message from Motorcycle Riders Foundation President, Kirk ‘Hardtail’ Willard

“As many of you know, last year the MRF assumed a new endeavor related to the unconstitutional practice of motorcycle profiling. After reports began to rise from our own membership citing instances where they felt singled out by law enforcement simply because of their appearance, apparel, or because they are simply riding a motorcycle, the MRF decided to take action.

Working with its partners within the Anti-Profiling Action Group, the MRF developed a strategy at the national level to help combat profiling, an issue that affects ALL riders and is unfortunately increasing. We know this to be true because of a survey put forth by the Motorcycle Profiling Project. In 2015, the survey found over 50% of riders across the U.S. reported being unjustifiably stopped by police at least once while riding their motorcycles. With a participation level of over 5,000 motorcyclists nation-wide, these facts and figures will help support and solidify our concerns over this issue when addressing lawmakers in Washington, D.C.

This year, the Motorcycle Profiling Project has launched another survey designed to reach an even broader audience. Like the previous survey, its results will be used as critical tools in the efforts to obtain legislative relief across the country. I am asking you to take a few moments and fill out the survey, which can be accessed by clicking on the link below. It’s completely anonymous and it’s only 15 questions. On behalf of the entire MRF membership and its Board of Directors, thank you for your support on this issue.

YOUR VOICE MAKES A DIFFERENCe AT Motorcycle Profiling Survey.

Millennium Chopper. Crafted In Metal. Wrapped In Leather.

Bryan Fuller’s hand-crafted artistry is always very unusual and of course it’s a compliment. It can be because of the frame he conceives or modify, the powerplant he uses, the bike’s overall architecture that he designs, the final finish or treatment that he decides, or all of them together in the same creation. I have observed those reactions when people walk by this “Millennium Chopper”. Surprise, followed by interest and an irresistible desire to touch it (yes, it’s leather), all this preceding a flurry of comments and arguments between friends about what is what?

Bryan’s way to work on motorcycles may be explained by the way and with who he acquired his advanced fabrication skills. In highly respected west coast automotive custom shops, like So-Cal Speed Shop and Chip Foose Design. They shaped him into the fabricator he is today, never afraid to challenge the too obvious way to shape and build. For the most part, customizing is an independent experience during which you’re truly alone with your thoughts and a few parts. Fortunately for all of you Bryan Fuller belongs to this small category of custom builders who, when the machine is completed, is able to narrate what was his full mental process during the build. As he explained to me, traditional rules were no meant for this custom…

“I met a gentleman in Canada at one of the big shows up there called the Atlantic Nationals. The customer asked me to build him a bike similar to one of the “Righteous Fueller” we had built that year. After coming to an agreement, we came home and started the bike. The “Fueller” (contraction of names Fuller and Buell) was done for the Biker Build-Off series and this is the last of the run of 5. On all of these bikes, we started with an Buell XB-12 (2003-2007). Using the front end, brakes, bearings, Engine and transmission and wiring, we’re able to take an American Sport Bike and put it into more of a cruiser riding position. These bikes are fast and fun! The frames we made of 4130 Chromoly custom for each of the 5 customers. Most of the brackets were water jet cut, and the bungs were CNC lathe’d. We made our own wheels and hubs, which are one of the cooler pieces we believe. Replacement components are easy as well as they need to be replaced over time.

With the Millennium Chopper we decided to do something different. Twin Spar frame tubes leading up the backbone. The idea was to bring the intake straight up like the stock Buell did and make a cool looking stack coming up through the tank. Seems like a good idea! Problem with this setup is that the entire visuals of the tank area are defined by these 2 frame tubes. Anything you do with the sheetmetal is defined and overtaken with these tubes. We had a roller, and it was time to work on sheetmetal design. I felt really conflicted on how to get it right, so I decided to use clay as OEM’s do. Automotive Modeling Clay allows you to infinitely change shapes, proportions, and lines very quickly. You can absolutely get everything exactly the way you like before heading into metal or some kind of composite. Here lies the problem too though: with such ability to change its hard to stop working the clay and not just modifying it over and over till your mind wants to pop!

To Be released In June. Black Mirrored Brake Discs.

There is not such thing as a fully blacked-out factory or even custom motorcycle. Soon, you will be able to go closer to the 100% sinister look using black brake discs.

In June, Ride Nice will release the “Platinum Black” brake discs featuring a corrosion-protection finish that is actually Zinc Plated. The process is described by the company as an extensive, hand-applied operation that is not sprayed onto the rotor like other inferior coatings. Each “Platinum Black” brake disc is immersed in different solutions during the coating process.

The final result is a thick, protective coating with a black mirrored look. Of course you can re-use your stock disc hardware but Ride Nice will also offer black hardware sold separately. Each Platinum Black Disc should be sold for $189.95.

New Engine Installation Tech Tips By S&S Cycle

The day has arrived and you are ready to order the new engine that you have been wanting. You should begin planning the installation when you order your engine. Here are several things to check during installation that are often overlooked. The advice from S&S Cycle.

  • When ordering the new engine it is wise to order replacements for any questionable parts. If the battery cables, throttle cables, oil lines, primary chain, spark plugs, etc. are old and worn, order replacements when you order the engine. This will save you down time.
  • Once you have removed your old engine it is time to prep the rest of the chassis. Replace any worn motor mounts in rubber mount chassis. Remove the oil tank and oil lines (if tank is removable from chassis) and flush thoroughly. If the tank is not removable flush it in place. This step is often overlooked and leftover debris is drawn into the new engine the first time it is fired, this debris can cause premature wear or damage. Also remove any paint or powder coat from the motor mounts. If the mount is not clean the paint will wear away over time causing the engine to be loose in the frame.
