We have a limited supply on hand of our sixth annual local photography book, and it's slightly different from previous years (we're removing the bigger corporate type events and concentrating on the grassroots homegrown... now who would have seen that coming?)
100 pages, full color gloss perfect bound, 100% ad freeeeeee.... because (like I've said a couple hundred times before) ads suck. Nothing else, they suck. "But that's the name of the game." Well, good luck with that, these aren't like the others. I completely understand you might need to supplement declining sales with more and more advertisements within your pages, but eventually, everything becomes marginalized (like most major motorcycle events these days) and then it's just a copy of a copy of a copy... like most major motorcycle events these day. Wait. Did I just say that?
This is a limited release and my stock on hand will not last. Quick on the draw or miss the BBQ and get stuck with the 'slaw... Early release includes free shipping U.S., free shop rag, patch, button, and various stickers. (don't fret, there'll be more coming next month if you miss this early release).
On Friday, March 11, 2016, The Biltwell Bash at Robison Cycles will kick off the second and final weekend of activities at Daytona Bike Week. In a sea of bedazzled baggers, the Biltwell Bash will stick out like a boner in sweatpants. The fun starts 9:00 am with a swap meet in Robison's parking lot. Jecoa and his old man have squirreled away 50 years of crusty goodness, and much of it will be on sale. If old gold ain't your thing, there will be free donuts and coffee. At noon, the folks from Aunt Catfish's restaurant will be serving up fried catfish, grits and hush puppies. Come earlyâ€”the first 200 guests eat free! Everyone after that can stuff their faces for 7 bucks a plate. Of course, free keg beer will be flowing during lunch and beyond. Immediately following lunch there will be a bike show with cool handmade trophies and prizes. Three classes of bike will be on display, and entry is free. Bring your FXR's, your Street Trackersâ€”any brandâ€”and your choppers for 2:00 pm registration and stick around to see the winners unveiled at 4:00. Legendary motormouth Dumptruck will be the master of ceremonies, so it will be a good time. Finally, when the sun sets on Robinson Cycles we'll be screening old biker flicks on the warehouse wall. The Biltwell Bash at Robison Cycles is all free, all day, so grab your chaps and 'do rag and let's party in the Sunshine State! Thanks to S&S Cycle, ChopCult, Hot Bike and Street Chopper for pitching in on this gig!
You've probably noticed that the main feature and What's Happening hasn't updated this week. The techs are working on the issues and hopefully, we 'll resume our normal schedule Monday. Until then here are a few features from the archives....Lisa
There are so many innovations on this puppy it's freaking crazy! Not satisfied with your rake? No problem! Same goes for the fork length. Adjust both with very little effort and switch back again when you are ready! Custom shock brackets may also be used to accommodate various length shock absorbers and to adjust fork length in addition to the Axle Clevis Adjustment.
Safety is a priority! Nightmare scenario... Your steering stem nut becomes lose or falls off altogether (a well-known issue with girder style front ends). On the RELIC front end, the lower active link pin serves as a redundant safety backup system by preventing the lower tree from separating from the steering assembly.
Another cost saving feature - Built in accommodation for an internal fork stop. Use a "bearing race style" fork stop (available on site) and don't worry about drilling and tapping holes. Everything is already taken care of!
Accommodations are provided for numerous style front brake systems and the axle bushings can be machined to just about any size Standard or Metric.
The RELIC is available in raw steel ($895 Retail) and Gloss Black powder-coat ($1095 Retail). Shock absorber and Axles are purchased separately or you can source your own. Standard lengths include 18", 22", and 26". However... We will fabricate the RELIC to just about any custom length needed. (Additional cost may apply)
Additional components are available for purchase including a variety of shock absorbers, turn stops, axles, spacers and bushings.
In all, the RELIC front-end is an updated twist on early American technology and a fresh new option for seekers of classic style.
Brakepedal was junk all the time but I "repaired" it and it worked for a while. With the bike totally rebuild it is safer to install a new one. Easy to buy at Motorcyclestorehouse/BaMo Tech so while waiting I took a BMX Seatpost and made a spacer out of it for the brake pedal. Shimano DX pedal inserts will hold the spacer/brake pedal axle in place. And last but not least: a flat front tire...yes that was the last thing I didn't touch so now I had 100% of the bike in my hands.
