ClevelandMoto 114 Vintage Motorcycle Shows, McElfresh is sick.


Johnny Mc is in bad shape and ends up with car trouble on top of it. The guys slip back into radio announcer voice (curses). What's do you think we're gonna see at the MC show? 

Is it form or function - what kind of show is this?

Here's where to get more info about the Ohio Motorcycle Show at the IX Center.




Look at me! I'm riding a Harley Davidson...


Look at me! I'm riding an electric Harley Davidson...


Look at me...I'm riding a Dryer. And having the exact same experience. 


This is a Ural Deco - Notice the lack of an Earles front fork.

This is a Ural with the proper Earles Front fork. 


This is the BMW R1200C-LC 

It actually stands for Cruiser Luxury Custom


Here's one that saw itself in a mirror and promptly killed itself. 


R1200C in the only way it's acceptable. 

The Drunken Scotsman Song...don't ever, EVER let me drive after you hear me sing this song....take my keys.

ClevelandMoto 108 - 400cc Bikes G400c - Ducati Sixty2 - Another Fireside Chat, vintage motorcycle goodness!

Welcome Luke (SparkyMoto) and The new Genuine G400C,

Welcome to Luke; Here's the Ad we used to hire Johnny Chrome and Luke:

-Motorcycle mechanic needed for 13 year old shop with locations on the east and west side of town. 
-You must have actual experience with vintage Japanese motorcycles and be able to prove it. 

-You will be asked to bring in your small tool box (rally box). 
-You will be asked to perform a basic mechanical service to our standards to assess your skills. 
-We are not looking for someone who "has always dreamed of working on Harleys" yes, you may work on the occasional HD, but the vast majority of bikes we work on are from Japan and other places.

-Don't bother if your idea of a custom build is $5000 worth of accessories that you bolted on "all by yourself".  
-We are not looking for "Ricky Rocket" types, stretched swingarms and nitrous is great for the track, but it's not what we do.

-If you just put a power commander on your 'Busa and now it's Hella Fast...we commend you, but you probably want to look elsewhere.  

We're looking for a guy who can do 8 billable hours of work in an 8 hour day. We're not here to train you, we don't need an apprentice, nobody is here to hold your hand. 
Motorcycle license REQUIRED !


Luke's Motorcycle kicks much ass, and basically got him hired:

Hello Sir, You seem like the right guy for a Harley D-B. 


Fuck Yeah!!!! D-B Power!!!!

Clevelandmoto 105 - Removing Ethanol - Diabeetus - Military Bikes - Epoxy - Vintage Motorcycle Chat

Removing Ethanol from gasoline, the proper way to clean a carb, and prepping for winter.



http://www.ozebook.com/guzzi/3x3.htm

Yep, Guzzi made Army Tractors. and they were 3 wheel drive too. 


Harley Davidson MT500 - that didn't become the official US military motorcycle


The Kawasaki KLX250 that DID become the Official US Military Motorcycle


Eventually they opted for the KLR650 designated as the M1030B1 - Gas powered (as god intended). 

Then in the interest of NOT having a bunch of bullet un-friendly gasoline on the battlefield, they decided to go Diesel. Despite every ass-hat on the planet thinking they want one (I'm sick of hearing it already) the project failed and they all essentially died a horrible death. So there...quit talking about it. It was such a disaster Hayes Diversified Technologies doesn't even exist anymore. Nuff said. If you want a diesel motorcycle, you're not fascinating or clever or the first person to think about it. Even these guys couldn't make it work. 

Diaphragm Carbs - 


Yep, you're boned. You can't fix it, you're gonna have to buy another one. 


You know who you are...I've been to your website...you totally did this just to move that thing along on Craigslist...you're the devil and you should be punished. 

Oh, then I found a website that claims to make rebuild kits for these things. 


EPOXY 


FOR EMERGENCY PURPOSES ONLY - srsly. 


De-Ethanol Your Gasoline!!!
