An Ironhead Chopper Named Trucky

15 years already that Taber Nash professionally dedicates all his time to the manufacturing of very unique motorcycles and of unusual parts and leather goods. Addicted to swap meets, he collects everything catching up his eye because visually exciting or representative of a certain time in our motorcycle history. To most, even among bikers, there would be only pieces of junk. But for Taber, after sitting on the shelves of his shop sometimes several years, they become the essential parts to create a new bike, soul included. Usually, but not always, the end result is a skinny custom with a loud painted peanut gas tank and where the vintage and brand new parts mix up in a very Rad fashion.

This project can be considered started 8 years ago at a swap meet in Portland, Oregon. Taber noticed an orange piece of tubing pocking out of a sea of oldies and he knew right way that it was a motorcycle frame, at least part of one… As he dug it out, he realized it was the back half of a Harley Ironhead Sportster frame, with only the engine rear mounts still present. Probably chopped in the 70s from the factory frame and from a bike that was either wrecked, stolen , stripped down and sold off. Either way a little part of motorcycle history that he acquired for only 20 bucks…

Eventually, a project had to be started from this rear Sportster frame. And the opportunity arised when one of his clients lost interest in one of the projects he was working on. For the price of a song he sold him a Harley Ironhead engine from 1974, the first year when it was offered by yhe factory with strong 1000 cc cylinders. An excellent motor choice for a classic custom build. Immediately Taber turned into a 1200 cc S&S stroker with split rocker boxes. dual spark heads that logically he matted to a 4-speed H-D tranny.

With in mind the vision of a 70’s Chopper riding the highway along a Peterbilt truck, , Taber pounded, bent, and welded a brand new long and skinny frame and named his new project “Trucky”. Then it was time to dig through all corners of the shop to find the rest of what would be needed to complete this reborn Ironhead. And when not uncovered between his walls, Taber did his thing, chopping a sporty tank, building a one-off oil bag, installing a shortened set of his proprietary Lewis exhaust pipes, a set of his Midget Gimps bars, a frame mounted left solo bag etc. The rusty yellow glass headlight is a great example of a rad accessory contributing to make it a rad bike.  By the way, he also calls his build ”The Little Man in the Woods”. Why? Because of the brass man that is mounted on the frame neck. He is not sure where he picked it up, still can’t figure out what it’s from, but as it sits on the frame neck, tucked back in the triple trees , that makes him the Little Man in the Woods.. Below a very nice video of Taber Nash philosophy in which Trucky is also featured. Nash Motorcycles. (photography @ Austin Bauman)

Joke Of The Week

The Pastors Wife

The pastor’s wife was expecting a baby, so he stood
before the congregation and asked for a pay rise.
After much discussion,
they passed a rule that whenever the pastor’s family expanded so would his pay.

After 6 children, this started to get expensive and the
congregation decided to hold another meeting to discuss
the pastor’s expanding salary.

A great deal of yelling and inner bickering ensued, as to
how much the pastor’s additional children were costing
the church, and how much more it could potentially cost.
After listening to them for about an hour, the pastor rose from his chair and spoke,
“Children are a gift from God, and we will take as many gifts as he gives us.”
Silence fell over the congregation.

In the back pew, a little old lady struggled to stand, and
finally said in her frail voice, “Rain is also a gift from God,
but when we get too much of it, we wear rubber boots.”

The entire congregation said, “Amen.”

Black Mamba. A 1973 Honda CB550

Rarely a custom Honda has looked so good to me. It’s the work of Hookie Co, a Germany-based motorcycle builder specializing in building Cafe and Street Racers. Their philosophy? The best when you can apply it. Work slow, steady with a sharp eye for beautiful details…

The Black Mamba is a minimal 1973 Honda CB550 whose look is a pure definition of motorcycle minimalism, the intentional promotion of the most valuable parts and the removal of everything that distracts us from them. Only the parts that are useful or beautiful: a fully rebuilt motor, a shortened frame, a lowered front and rear suspension, a custom fairing, clip-on bars, simple electronics, etc (see tech sheet below)

Thought Of The Day



“Data is a precious thing and will last longer than the systems themselves.”

Tim Berners-Lee (Inventor of the World Wide Web)

New Oil Products For Harley-Davidson Milwaukee-Eight Touring Models

Oil Catcher Drain Funnel. This new Oil Catcher Drain Funnel (P/N 62700199, $22.95) was made specifically for servicing the new Harley-Davidson Milwaukee-Eight engine. Harley-Davidson says it fits securely around the oil filter mounting bracket while providing access to spin the filter off its mount. Oil is captured in the funnel and drains through a tube to a catch basin or bottle. The funnel’s smooth orange surface is easy to wipe clean after use.

Oil Cooler Cover. This new Oil Cooler Cover (P/N 25700633 Chrome, P/N 25700634 Black; $149.95) is meant to pull double duty as both protection and style enhancer. This cover is shaped to hug the contours of the oil cooler body and does not interfere with the engine guard or the voltage regulator. The forward-facing mesh screen adds a custom touch and protects the oil cooler fins from road debris without disturbing the airflow across the surface. Unfortunately, the cover doesn’t fit models with fairing lowers, or with the accessory Fan-Assisted Oil Cooler (P/N 62700204).

Motorcycle Versus Car Insurance

If you already know and understand the basics of car insurance coverage, you’re in good shape to know the basics of motorcycle insurance coverage. But there are some differences between motorcycle and car insurance. Motorcycle insurance, which is required in nearly every state, helps to protect the owners’ investments in cases of collisions, theft, injury, and much more.

What do motorcycle and auto insurance policies have in common?

A good rule of thumb: if specific coverage is required for auto insurance in any particular state, the same will generally be true of motorcycle insurance. Even in states that don’t require motorcycle insurance, coverage options are normally quite similar to those offered on auto policies. Liability, uninsured motorist, medical payments, and physical damage coverage are fairly common coverages to see offered by motorcycle insurance providers.

Motorcycle Liability Coverage

As is the case with car insurance, liability coverage is extremely important, as it covers the other driver and the other vehicle and property in the event that you cause a collision. This is the minimum type of motorcycle coverage required by most states.
While motorcycle riders are less likely to cause as much damage as an automobile, strictly considering the weight of the vehicle, riders are still liable for damage and injury that they cause to a third party. Further, lawsuits don’t discriminate based on what sort of vehicle the liable party was driving (or, in this case, riding). If you caused an accident, you expose yourself to a potential lawsuit. Since liability coverage is intended to protect the primary named insured’s assets, carrying as much liability as you can afford is always the best option. Pro Tip: Increasing liability limits on a motorcycle policy is fairly inexepensive, so maxing out your coverage will generally result in a very small, if any, increase in premium.

Uninsured Motorist and Medical Payments Coverage for Motorcycle Owners

Having both medical and uninsured motorist coverage broadens the scope of an insurance policy to cover the rider in a more comprehensive manner. Uninsured drivers are a big problem for car owners and motorcycle owners alike. Uninsured motorist coverage keeps you (the rider) and your bike protected in the case that you’re hit, injured, or otherwise sustain damage caused by someone who is uninsured or underinsured. For motorcyclists especially, this type of coverage is critical. According to a study conducted by the Insurance Research Council (IRC), as of 2012, about one in eight drivers (more than 12%) was uninsured. And going without uninsured motorist coverage would mean your medical bills would not be covered in these all-too-frequent dangerous scenarios.

Where uninsured motorist coverage protects riders from other drivers who may be without insurance at the time of an at fault accident, medical payments coverage is intended to protect the rider when they suffer injury due to an accident that is considered their own fault. And even if you consider yourself a superb and safe driver and you’re more worried about the dangerous behavior of others on the road, you could be on the hook for major medical expenses if you forgo medical payments coverage and cause a collision.
Pro Tip: Uninsured motorist coverage amounts don’t have to match your liability limits if you choose to carry a higher amount of liability.

Motorcycle Full Coverage (for Physical Damage to the Bike)

Physical damage coverage is extremely important to both auto and motorcycle owners as well; especially folks who are financing their cars or cycles. When signing the loan paperwork for that sweet new Harley or Indian or…, your salesperson will undoubtedly mention the fact that you will need insurance coverage to take the bike home. What they really mean is that, while you’re making payments on it, the motorcycle will need to be protected against damage and theft — not just liability. Fortunately, motorcycle owners can select deductible options similar to those available to automobile owners.

Pro Tip: Physical damage coverage can be a bit expensive for motorcycles due to the likelihood of damage and theft, so ask your salesperson about the highest deductible your finance company will allow you to carry. The higher the deductible, the lower the premium.

What’s the difference between motorcycle insurance and car insurance?
As you’ve seen above, motorcycle and auto insurance overlap in a number of ways, but here are a few types of insurance coverage unique to those choosing the motorcycle life: Continue reading ‘Motorcycle Versus Car Insurance’

Harley-Davidson Among Bidders To Buy Italian Ducati

Numerous sources state that Harley-Davidson is lining up a takeover bid for Italian Ducati put up for sale by German carmaker Volkswagen, potentially bringing together two of the most famous names in motorcycling in a deal that could be worth up to 1.5 billion euros ($1.67 billion) Others are also preparing to bid: Bajaj Auto (BAJA.NS) and several buyout funds. Tentative bids are expected in July. VW hopes to raise between 1.4 and 1.5 billion euros from the sale of Ducati, valuing it at 14-15 times its earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of about 100 million euros. A source close to VW said the sale of Ducati may not be finalized before the annual EICMA motorcycle show in Milan in mid-November as VW wants to find the right buyer and the sales process may take time.

Michelin Partners With Worldwide All Female Motorcycle Collective “The Litas”

Michelin has announced a new partnership with female-centric motorcycle group, The Litas. What started as a small group of women who love to ride motorcycles in Salt Lake City in late 2014, has grown to a massive network of female motorcycle enthusiasts that has 140 branches in nearly 20 countries. With more than 3,000 members and riders, the Litas network is as vast as it is diverse and it’s the largest of its kind in the world.

The Litas is all about women coming together and sharing in a common love for motorcycles,” said Jessica Haggett, founder of The Litas. “Our mission is pretty straightforward and with Michelin as a partner, we are able to amplify our network and make even stronger connections in the motorcycle industry.”
Michelin’s Motorcycle tire division first caught sight of the Litas on social media, where more than 67,000 Instagram followers like, post and share in the passion and experiences that the individual members and local chapters of the group cultivate and create on their motorcycles.

“For Michelin, the Litas represent a growing opportunity to engage with an enthusiastic and dynamic group of riders,” said Scot Clark, marketing manager for Michelin’s motorcycle group. “We’ve been passionate about the connections and experiences motorcycles can create for as long as we’ve been making tires and the Litas get that and live that so authentically. We’re glad to partner with them.”

For the next year, Michelin and the Litas will partner on social media contests for the organization’s members and will work together on collaborations for social media fans and followers of both accounts.

American Flat Track. Indian Motorcycle Jared Mees Takes His Second Straight Win At The OKC Mile

American Flat Track’s return visit to the OKC Mile presented by Indian Motorcycle in Oklahoma City, Okla., lived up to every bit of the hype on Saturday night June 17 at Remington Park. Despite being presented with every opportunity to ease up in the intense heat and accept a safe runner-up result to claim sole possession of the AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines championship lead, Jared Mees instead gritted his teeth and went to work aboard the No. 9 Indian Motorcycle Rogers Racing Scout FTR750.

Until that point, an imperious Brad Baker (No. 6 Indian Motorcycle Racing backed by Allstate Scout FTR750) dictated the race from the front and from the start. Baker cleared off from the opening lap and systematically assembled a seemingly insurmountable lead. Behind in third, Mees found himself corralled behind reigning Grand National Champion Bryan Smith (No. 1 Indian Motorcycle Racing backed by Allstate Scout FTR750) while Baker made his escape.

Even after finally working into second, Mees could do nothing as Baker continued to pile onto his advantage. However, the leader’s prodigious speed transformed into his Achilles Heel as it inevitably propelled him into thick packets of lapped riders. Poor luck turned into mistakes which turned into tight riding on the part of Baker; for Mees, meanwhile, it served as hope and motivation. He whittled away at the lead and finally took it for himself on the penultimate lap. Continue reading ‘American Flat Track.

Joke Of The Week

The Ventriloquist

A young ventriloquist is touring Boston and puts on a show in a local Chemical Lab. With his dummy on his knee, he starts going through his usual dumb blonde jokes.

Suddenly, Shelly, a blonde woman in the lab stands on her chair and starts shouting, “I’ve heard enough of your stupid blonde jokes.  What makes you think you can stereotype blonde women that way? What does the color of a woman’s hair have to do with her worth as a human being? It’s men like you who keep women like me from being respected at work and in the community, and from reaching our full potential as people.  It’s people like you that make others think that all blondes are dumb! You and your kind continue to perpetuate discrimination against not only blondes, but women in general, pathetically all in the name of humor!”

The embarrassed ventriloquist begins to apologize, and the blonde yells,\ “You stay out of this! I’m talking to that little shit on your lap.”
