    By far his hardest and most fun build, the Cruise Missile™ bike is Dave’s monument to everyone thats loves the 2 wheel lifestyle. With the American muscle Harley Davidson motor, the sportbike geometry of the chassis, the race bike components, the flat track feel, the stunt riding parts and the popular cafe seat and tail. All of it coming together in one machine offering something for everybody to appreciate, uniting every group into one idea. A true marriage of class and style.

  • Junior Burrell | Man & Metal

    Junior Burrell of Retro Moto hit the pages of Pipeburn last month with his ’89 BMW R100 build - A wedding gift for a friend. Why bother seeing what’s listed on you’re friends wedding registry, when you can build a beauty like this. The final results are stunning and really, we wouldn’t expect anything less.

    Junior_BMW_WeTheFastHOODIE

    Nametag Films took notice of Junior’s work and has started a five part web series titled ‘Man & Metal.’ The series will follow him through a build from beginning to end and will shed some light into Junior's process and how he brings his concepts to life.

    The first segment is pretty cool and it looks like we’re going to be following Junior through the BMW build from last months Pipeburn article. We can’t wait to see more.

  • Ryan Hawco's We, The Fast™ Bike

    Ryan picked up a brand new Kawasaki ZX6R last year with a little help from Blackfoot Motorsports. The bike had absolutely zero km on it when it rolled out of the dealership. 

    IMG_9393

    Ryan says, “I have always tried my best to have a nice clean looking bikes but with this new one my main goal was to make it my nicest bike build yet.”

    After bringing the bike home in November Ryan rolled it onto his lift where it sat until just a few weeks ago. He stripped almost every stock piece off the bike; bodywork, gearing, traction control, exhaust etc.

    Hawco-Freestyle-3646

    The first thing was to cut the Hot Bodies Racing bodywork to fit the bike and prep it for the Speed and Strength ‘We, The Fast™’ wrap.

    Once that was done Ryan sent the bodywork to Scott Gerbrandt of www.37inc.ca to work his vinyl magic. Scott came up with his own idea of wrapping the rims and front forks of the bike to match the bodywork. 

    The final product speaks for itself.

    Hawco-Freestyle-2015-4423-2

    The following is everything Ryan added to the bike:

    • Hindle Exhaust Evolution Full System
    • Racing 905 Crash Cage, Subframe Cage and EZ Pull Clutch Lever
    • Apex MFG Adjustable Clip-ons
    • HEL Brake lines
    • Thrust Company Front and Rear Sprockets
    • EK MVXZ Chain
    • Hot Bodies Race Bodywork
    • Guhl Motors ECU Flash
    • Elka Suspension Stage 4 Rear Shock
    • NDC Dual Caliper Bracket w/ Big Rotor Kit
    • Brembo T-Drive Front Rotors, .484 Front Calipers and Handbrake Caliper, 16 RCS Handbrake Master and 19 RCS Front Brake Master
    • Runman Rear Sets
    • Dicks Customs Gas Tank, Fairing Stay, Radiator Cage with Added Dual Fans and Reinforced Subframe

  • The Woodsman Cup: A Different Kind of Race

    Billed as The weirdest bike rally in Orlando since 2013, the original idea for the Woodsman Cup was to blend a bike meet and rally race together. The gathering allows a mixture of ALL sorts of bikes, from scooters to superbikes, to come together and ride because in the end it doesn’t matter what you ride as long as you’re out enjoying it.

    Racing for the event is done through the woods on a 1/4 mile groomed flat track . Anyone and any bike at any skill level can come out and participate. Everyone is welcome and no one is excluded.  There’s a concert of live music from some of central Florida's best local bands, an all day cook out, raffle prizes and the chance to win a new ride. 

    It’s all about community and getting people together to have a good time. Racing street bikes on the dirt doesn't make sense, but neither does anything else these days. These aren't your AMA pros, or even your local track runners. These are the weekend warriors. The true lovers of two wheels, who want nothing else than to ride with their peers. The last modern day Woodsmen.

  • Eslick Takes Back to Back Daytona Victories

    Danny Eslick took the win on the weekend at the Daytona International Speedway for the 74th annual Daytona 200.

    Riding on the TOBC racing Suzuki GSX-R600, Danny crossed the finish line .086 seconds ahead of rival Josh Herrin. The race was riddled with red flags but saw some intense action in the final laps.

    Herrin said from the podium: “I thought I was going to be able hold him off”

    “Those last couple of laps were pretty crazy,” Danny said. “I thought I was all by myself and looked back and there’s big number two.  So I kind of eased up. I knew he was going to catch me and I didn’t want him to catch me right there at the end. He did right what I wanted, he went by me and I drafted pass him across the line. It was just kind of textbook draft passing at Daytona.”

    Congratulations to the TOBC racing team and Danny Eslick for netting his second straight Daytona win.
