I've been working on the brand for about two years now, so go purchase some garments.
To me the idea of bringing an old, very old machine back to life & transforming it into a cafe racer will not only be challenging, but also (hopefully) make some people seeing it, appreciate these old motorcycles even more.
The very first part of the project is deciding on what bike to buy.
I was leaning towards a 1978 Kawasaki KZ400.
Then it was 1982 Kawasaki KZ550
Then finally, despite all the warnings about Honda electronics....1979 CB650z
Now that I got it, first part was to check it out and fix electronics.
I found the battery ran down and would not charge, so I checked the voltage and it was barely reaching 12v when idling, so no charging. mmm That means one thing. Stator, Rotor or Regulator/Rectifier is f...ed.
I opened the Rotor cover and checked the ohms between the rings, there it was. Not even 1.7ohms. That was shorting the whole thing out. It should be between 4.2 & 5.2 ohms.
Needless to say that the rectifier/regulator was blown because of this. So off I went to the bike shop with my other bike's battery.
So the bike shop swoped mine with another old bike's to see if it will run, but it just blew again.
ROTOR NEED TO BE REWOUND DUDES!
Now I'm waiting for the rotor to be recoiled & a new rectifier from China.
And although these might cost me half an arm or a leg, I hope it lasts for another 30 years.
So that is the progress that I have made so far.
And some smoke coming from the 4th cylinder, but I am 90% sure it is the right hand top O-ring that is causing the oil to seep through to the 4th cylinder and right-hand side of motor.
And then I think I might as well change the timing chain & tensioner.
That being said, there are other things I will sort out over the following weeks/months, but first things first.
What will the end product look like.
I really like the Clubman handlebars with the bar-end mirrors and for the back .... classic cafe racer seat OR
the Flat seat style with Drag handle bars?
Check out the pictures bellow and drop me some comments or email me with what you like.
Not that I'm going to do what you like.
So far all I know is I want the bike to be black with silver & a bit of chrome.
This week's sexiest girl of the week award goes to another one of Victoria's Secret models and she don't just look good with lingerie. She looks awesome in her fashion shots.
Aldridge was born at St John's Hospital in Santa Monica, California and hails from a fashion-oriented family. She is the daughter of English artist Alan Aldridge and Playboy Playmate of the month Laura Lyons. Her siblings include half-sister Saffron Aldridge, who was a multiyear face of Ralph Lauren in the 1990s; half-brother Miles Aldridge, who is a fashion photographer married to 1990s model Kristen McMenamy; and sister Ruby Aldridge, who was the face of Marc by Marc Jacobs.
Yesterday some Village Idiot set a train carriage on fire at Woodstock Station. It quickly spread and soon there was smoke everywhere, disrupting and Fu<ing up the system for every one. Hundreds of commuters where stranded in Cape Town as the trains could not go past Woodstock station and obviously it was just one mess. I hope that the person responsible gets a severe anal cramp as the authorities aka Metro rail Security are useless. That is if you can find one. And why are there no fire extinguishers on the platforms. O, I know, because they will get stolen in the first week. Not all bad news. There is an upside. No one got hurt. Check out the photos of the fire.
Ok, got informed now that some people where taken to hospital due to smoke inhalation.
I don't know about you, but I am beginning to think Japan people have lost their minds or it's another case of ...too much saki. A 53-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of biting his adult son to death to get rid of a “snake haunting him”, Japanese media have reported.TV Asahi said Katsumi Nagaya seriously injured his son, Takuya, on Friday at the younger man's apartment in Anjo, central Japan, by head-butting and biting him after the 23-year-old began writhing around and claiming to be a serpent. Takuya was taken to hospital but declared dead a short time later, the broadcaster said.The suspect reportedly told police he had attacked his son in order to remove the snake from his mind.
Please note that the picture attached has nothing to do with the story except that it is a man with a snake in his head. lol.
Got this on a email from a friend and thought it was very original. A cheap costume for next years Halloween party or fancy dress. How funny would it be to walk down the street and see these guys live? Have a look at this awesome transformation from "poephol dressed up as a box" to "poephol in a box" This is the kind of $hit I expect Brakpan people to do.

Sexiest girl of the week award goes to Candice Swanepoel - Victoria's Top Secret
From rearing animals on a South African farm to working it on the high plains of the world's catwalks Candice is another Another Proudly South African girl making her mark.
"A year before I got scouted (Candice was discovered aged 15 at a flea market in 2003), I would watch a lot of FashionTV," she says. "At school I got teased because I was so thin and awkward-looking. But the girls on TV looked similar to me. I would say to my mum, 'The girls at school are teasing me, but I look like those girls on TV.' A year later, someone took me to an agency and that's it. Revenge is always... (laughs) I know it sounds terrible, but it does feel good to show those people."
By now you have realized that the holiday is almost over and going back to work is becoming a reality. So I found something fun, random and sexy for you guys ... and girls to look at. Here it is, a sexy girl in a bikini playing with her..... hoolahoop. And it has led lights. For Real! And she is f@(ing good at it.
Sorry for the poor quality, my girlfriend only have a Nokia 3310 with no camera. My wife said I can't use hers for my girlfriend's photos. Just joking love. L
