A Day in the Life

Hello boys and girls.
First things first:
Barber is coming up!
It is the best vintage event.
Racing on and off road.
Bike shows, swap meet.
Ducstock for you Pasta heads.
Be there- or be square!
So lately here at Mean Machines, we have had quite the experience
working on Honda CB's. Not the usual 1970's 750's or 550's,
but the 1960's models. CB160 and CB450- Black Bomber.
These were part of the first big Japanese push into our market.
As jobs, they're just more old bikes.
The responces I got from people who walked in the door is
really what was interesting.
Here is my friend Steve on the CB160 he owned
...just a few years ago...
He now rides a BSA A65, and just picked up a Norton ES2.
 I am helping him sort it out.
Had to show it off for him
You can catch him working over at Wes Scott Cycles.
Here's  a CB160 that was built by Joe Z.
He sent some pics after seeing our youtube video of the cafe racer project. 
Speaking of our youtube videos, after I got that Black Bomber going,
(go see the video on Meanmachinesusa)
Brando and I took a little detour...
I am finally getting settled into the new shop.
Got some work, got some projects,
and we are going to be filming as much as possible.

Now, don't forget to check us out on youtube!
