Complete early 283 Hi-Po Chevrolet V8 motor and TH350 trans. This is a really good running motor and trans that is super smooth and tight and very fast. The motor is a rare 1958-1962, High performance 315HP model. It was purchased by the Kennedy brothers in Pomona, California about 4 years ago and was pulled from a local Deuce 5 window where it had been sitting since the 60's. After being stripped and inspected and finding it was good condition low mileage engine the heads were rebuilt for good measure, full set of gaskets were installed as well as a new Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock carb, chrome alternator, starter, water pump, plugs, wires, distributor cap, points etc, before being painted orange. I have maybe done 600 miles since all this work done and it has never skipped a beat and does not leak or burn oil. it has great oil pressure, 40-45 when cold and 25-30 when hot. The trans was also a low mileage item and fitted with a new high stall converter, kick down linkage and an old chrome B&M shifter and it works great and shifts good. The 4 barrel air cleaner is a rare old aluminum Nicson marine style unit. The headers are old modified tube style and were on this very coupe since 1964. The aluminum valve covers are vintage 60's finned Corvette. I even have the original cut down fan for the front pulley! I have decided to put an early Cad motor and manual trans in my coupe so that is the reason this good running set up is up for grabs. I will be pulling it all out as one thing, so this really is a bolt in a car and go deal!! It's all still in my car so if you are interested you can check it out, hear it and ride in the car! It is located in Hollywood, California is local pick up only. $1500.00 firm. email@example.com The original chopped down Deuce grille shell & insert, custom made radiator and electric fan will also be available soon if anyone is interested.
There's now enough Breweries in Torrance (and the immediate surrounding cities, and there's even more under construction right now coming...) where we can continue the ridiculously short Beermuda Triangles runs indefinitely and still keep the destinations in rotations where no one get's bored exploring new geometric triangle routes. Really just a chance to meet up with fellow riders and have some beer and conversation outside of the mega-event hustle and bustle. And then there's always that one asshole who say's "I don't like people enough to have conversations with them..." well, too bad, you're welcome too. Everyone's welcome to join Beermuda Triangles or start your own #DIY. These are NON-SEGREGATED functions (unless you're a minor, then your high and dry). I'm sure there's plenty of other beermuda virgin breweries out there just waiting to be ridden hard and put away wet [read: ridden extremely short and put away slightly intoxicated][legal disclaimer: although I'm not encouraging drunk driving, that's extactly why it's only three breweries in three hours, so you have more time to sample and less time to pound off a case of Coors and put yourself and others in danger. That's what overnight campouts are for am I right?].
So far I have spent my time in the Sportster Forum on a build thread and while this has progressed I started looking for some ideas for a new project. You know the one just look won't buy anything just yet need to finish........ sound familiar ?
Anyway you already know what happened but here's the back story.... been looking a old BMW's for a while and looked at the growing scene in Europe for Cafe Racers and the like at the same time going to my local Drag Racing meets and thinking i would like to see if i could combine the 2.
Plenty of time doing homework and picked out a old plunger frame as the bike of choice so a R50 / R69 type, looks like they were going to be hard to come by so hatch a plan to buy just a frame and buy parts as they come up, found a frame in USA but missed it as organising shipping turned into a nightmare. It was all looking a bit of a lost cause when chance phone call which coincided with a planned weekend break just came together - the stars must have been aligned just right.-Dexter
Just wanted to say thanks so much to everyone that came out to (and helped make it happen) Strange Days 6! Between the wild weather, rocking tunes, crazy characters, and amazing bikes, it was definitely a strange but awesome weekend. We'll have some coverage and photos up soon. If anyone has any to share, send em on over to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Many of you have purchased a tire kit from Burly Brand and received a free ticket for the chance to win their So Cal Tracker. The drawing was postponed until this Saturday due to the recent loss of Burly Brand employee Jim Hogg. Jim helped Sean build the SOCAL Tracker and his untimely death has left a void for the whole Burly Brand crew. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jim's family and friends during this difficult time. RIP Jim.
The winner will be announced this Saturday at LAHD in Anaheim, CA. We'll share the winner's information on the build thread and CC's social media. Best of luck !- Lisa
Voodoo & Burnt Rubber is an art, bike, car & music show. As we enter our 4th year of putting on the show we will be moving VBR to SPACE in 2016. The event will be held on Saturday, July 23rd. While our time at Broken Sprocket Garage has been great, we have outgrown the garage space. Don't worry, Dave and Broken Sprocket will continue on with everything he does to make this event what it is. In fact, Dave is working on a complete custom build to be raffled off at VBR IV! One lucky attendee will be riding off on a full custom build. Keep your eyes peeled for updates on Instagram and this site.- Chris
