JUST THE TIPS - Shop tips to keep your project from getting out of control. 

Your motorcycle is NOT put together with Philips Head don't use a Philips Head screwdriver to work on it...Your bike is put together with JIS Fasteners and yes, there is a difference.

We recommend getting at least a #2 Impacta  JIS and at least a set of JIS bits or basic screwdrivers.

Motorcycle Of The Year 2016 Clevelandmoto Podcast #147

What is YOUR bike of the year? 

Well, if you read any of these 34 publications

You're probably noticing a trend...and $omebody is definitely telling you what motorcycle to buy.


Here's our completely unqualified opinion on what each of us thought was our bike of the year: 

John McElfresh ; The Yamaha XSR900 and he was right, with an MSRP of under $10k this seems like a LOT of bike for the $$$

Chris Smith: He's going for the Moto Guzzi MGX-21 - Yep, we do really like this bike, it violates all of the cruiser norms and I'm totally ok with that. 

Phil Waters: I really, really love the Zero DS motorcycle, and I've enjoyed riding it more than anything else...but as far as what bike I think is just a cool execution I dig this new Yamaha SCruiser 950 - or is it the SCRuiser 950? 

Johnny Chrome; Well, he was pretty clear on the fact that he was loving the Van Van 200 from Suzuki...

So, what the hell is a VAN-VAN, well, in the U.S. it was sold as the RV125 Tracker....

Now available again as the VanVan 200

And our Shop Project is to make this 1995 R100RT motorcycle into a Cafe Racer / Classic Standard
