It has been a while since I have posted or even ridden a motorcycle!! Since today's theme was Enfield Scrambler I figured I would post a favorite that keeps me motivated on a build...
If you have never heard of a Scott or didn't know there was such a thing as a 600cc 2 stroke, oil injected, water cooled motorcycle as early at 1908. The Japanese bikes didn't do it first regardless of the false advertisements.
Here is a video of a fellow collector gettin-at-it with his super sweet Power Plus.....
Great Show and Swap!
I walked away with a hoard of crap for super cheap. Here is the haul
"Was it worth the drive?" Yes. I have to say the 5 hrs and 15 min it took to get from downtown Sac here was not bad at all. Some of the prices are much much higher and some are much much cheaper. I would be surprised if you walked away disappointed.
Ok, to keep it simple i'll just post all the pics I took on my phone, because I am too cheap to buy a real camera.
...Enough said. I am not one to promote custom work..... I see more people discouraged from fancy bikes than motivated, but Bimmers generally suck (I have 4) so anytime there is a huge departure from stock I'm in!

This might make a BMW motorcycle actually fun to ride!
P.S. Remember, Photoshop works the same on motorcycles as it does on women in magazines
I was reading a great article on a favorite of mine. The Kawasaki A7SS 2 smoker 350 twin Avenger. What a Great name for a motorcycle!
I dig 2 strokes, especially when they have rotary valves and pull away from a 440 Challenger from a stop light. A classic Crotch rocket
More importantly in this article they introduce the gentleman that did the restoration, or as he calls it (and I think is aptly named) Re-manufactured... with no core charge.
He has completed BEAUTIFUL machines and as stated 41 in 6 years!!! Holy crap I am dragging my feet. His name is Bill Masho.
Here is his website: Vintage Moto Factory This is a must see
Here is the article... Motorcycle Classics Magazine Read it, learn it, Love it!
Before you even THINK about bad mouthing the quality of the parts made by our friends in the east, look at the manufacturer in his manufacturing facility. What he is producing is better than anyone I havr met in the states. This guy is inspirational
