The engines were eighty-inch knuckleheads with 12:1 fuel burning pistons and Bus Schaller reground cams and a carburetor on each cylinder.
In 2005, the 50 year anniversary of his run, [...]

Look back at 2012 from all of the motorcycle footage I shot. From California to the North Carolina coast, 2012 had the Death Science crew riding everywhere. Shot on a variety of cameras and lenses i can’t remember right now.

I’ve been taking a break from this site… Obviously… But came across a video this morning that I though you guys would enjoy. Essentially, it’s footage of a man with a very funny accent hand-painting a factory Royal Enfield tank. The juxtaposition of the indian accent with the subject blows me away…
Doug, or “Dragon as most of you guys knew him, first became a pain in my ass about 6 years ago. He would constantly barrage me with emails pertaining to my lack of competency. I finally grew tired of him and banned him from the forum. My actions didn’t deter him. In fact, he just [...]
Holy shit. For real? A bunch of hooigans in Detroit found an abandoned velodrome on the North East side of Detroit. After a little maintenance, mostly consisting of kicking beer cans off the track and weed whacking, the boys were ready to ride. Fucking AWESOME.
Check it out:
Detroit still rules.
I’m probably late to the news room with this, but forgive me… This kind of shit is right up my alley. Axel Budde is a German stunt driver in the movie industry. Not only that, but he also fabricates all kinds of crazy rigs for in-car cameras, booms, etc… He’s talented. And in his spare [...]
Best title for a post ever, right? I have no idea where these came from or what Barbs was up to, but this is pretty epic. I mean, Barbra Streisand. On a longish bike. Wearing leather. Rad. One more (better) photo after the break.
Thanks to Brian for the tip.
I like the folks over at Knucklebuster. I don’t know any of them, but they I have good sense… Proved by their content and this 1930 Henderson is a prime example. Jesus age… That might be just about the most sexy motorcycle I’ve ever laid eyes on. Details here.
What were you doing in the summer of 1966? We all should have been at the Circuit De Charade. This footage is proof… I totally dig the vantage points. Sure, it’s a silent film but I can still hear the sounds. Can’t you?
Let me introduce you to Ron Kellogg. For those that don’t know, he’s the owner and proprietor of one of the largest and best vintage automotive photography collections on the planet. If you can think of it, he probably has a picture of it from 1947… or ‘48… or ‘49… It really is incredible. To [...]
One of our members sent over this video last week and felt compelled to post it. There is just something about silent video capturing such a loud exercise that makes everything seem so graceful. I mean, I would love to hear the tune of those motors… But, in a way it’s awful fitting to watch [...]
