2002 dragster 650

2002 dragster 650

going to look at a 2002 dragster 650 some day next week. just wondering what people think of that model bike. don’t have any pics yet. as I have always had either sports or naked bikes I am unsure about cruisers.

so a few general questions:

what are common problems with this model?

what are they like as a daily commuter?

what are general overall thoughts on the model?

1984 fxrp

1984 fxrp

This started out as a cop bike in California.

1st year EVO motor.

The bike has been built as a hotrod and all the cop stuff stripped off it

Bored and Stroked out to 106 cubic inches

The FXR frame is reckoned to be the best handling frame harley ever built.

A young engineer named Erik Buell helped design it and he went on to build his own racebikes

They have cult status over here and fetch decent prices.

It’s a fun bike and goes really well and gets a lot of looks wherever I go on it.

last pic is 3 FXR’s

Baffled

Baffled

Well lads. Hope someone can help me out here. Have had the Magna VF 750 a few months now and love it. Someone suggested removing the baffles to give it a bit more grunt. Whats the general conciseness on this?


Also would I have to re-jet the carbs if I remove the baffles?

Triumph Chopper

Triumph Chopper

Here’s another one of mine that I sold 25 yrs ago and just came back to me.

Really nice period piece from the 70’s built with the chopper stuff that was available back then. I rode this thing all over the place back in the day and always regretted selling it

I just got it running again so happy days

Considering a 1989 Yamaha XV

Considering a 1989 Yamaha XV

Hi all,

New to bikes and am looking at this Yamaha XV from Classic Bikes and Bits in Walkinstown. Looking to go down the bobber route.


2 questions:


1) As a bike are the XV a reliable bike and are there any know issues with them I should be aware of?


2) Are Classic Bikes and Bits a known/established trader or should they be avoided?


Thanks.

Does she need new shoes?

Does she need new shoes?

Lads I’m looking for a bit of help. I’m fairly new to biking and picked up my first bike yesterday. The guy I bought if off said it was rarely used. The tires look like new but are very hard. A mate who is into bikes says they may need changing if the bike has been sitting unused for around 12 months.


Anyone shed a bit of light on this?
