I love to share pics & I seen someone posted pics of there toys so I thought Ide share also!! Now Im usually a Camaro guy & restoring a classic camaro or building a newer one over the winter, but this year I decided to take on the 73 Honda CB750 & make my dream cafe racer.

The first bike is my new 2006 Triumph Daytona 675 this bike is truly a dream to ride its just AWESOME!!I have built 4 other bikes I usually buy them wrecked & rebuild them but this time I bought new. My new new bike will be a Triumph Thruxton already cafe`ed out, love that bike.



Yes theres a bike in there along with me, LOL this was on my Birthday at hooters , MY wife took the picture for me & I have it blown up in a 11 X 14 in my computer room.



Heres of course my 73 CB750 which doesnt have one nut or bolt left on it as of now.




Heres my 90 Jeep YJ , 4.2 V6 bored 30 over head has been ported & polished roller rockers, Holley 650 carb, MSD ignition Headers, dual exhaust man this thing runs. Future plans get rid of the barbie blue & going Black & silver, 6 in lift & 35 in tires.






We also have 4 pocket bikes 3 are sport bike style & one is a chopper heres mine I just picked up , I have upstairs in my computer room , on my big screen tv , LOL!!



Well thats about it for me right now unless another good deal comes along. We also have a Go-kart but I dont have pics of it.

Thanks for looking.

that's a YJ Wrangler not a CJ, and it's an Islander to boot <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

did you do the chevy swap? Why did you go with the 4.3 motor instead of the 350? Was it an easy swap or a pain in the arse? I have been thinking of a 350 Vortec swap for my 1995 YJ as far as I know this is pretty much the same as a 4.3 swap (the 4.3 six is a 350 chevy minus two cylinders).

Also, do yourself a favor and forget the thuxton. Ducati sport 1000s are still cluttering up showrooms and Duc is offering a special incentive price of $7995 to help clear out the last of the mono-postos. This a bargain for waht is essentially a S2r motor in a classic chassis. The sport 1000 is a much better bike than the thruxton will ever be, trust me on this. I rode both and bought the sport 1000.

geeto.......wait where did you see the sport 1000S for 8grand? last time i was in formula one all they wanted to do is sell me a 600RR and gold coast was out. supermoto had one but not on that much of a sale. i was thinking about seeing if ducati was going to offer the 1100 motor, olims(spelling B)suspention and the radial brakes on the "new" bike but for 8 grand im in!

There is the right way, the wrong way and the british way to do anything!

It has been all over the ducati board that Ducati North America has authorized sales on 2006 sport classics for $7995. I bought the last 06 from goldcoast and I wish I had known about this because I paid more than that. That $7995 is not an out the door price and expect dealers not to give you a break on them. The only place I have heard of selling one for that price is in Rhode Island.

There were two on ebay in the last couple of weeks with $8000 buy it nows. I don't think they sold.

I don't think you are going to find a NY dealer who is willing to let it go for that. Formula 1 is whitey's joint, so good luck getting blood from that stone. I have not been to supermoto, but I imagine that they are like the rest - paid $9400 for the bike to begin with plus the interest.

Even at $9000 the bike is still a bargain as compared with an s2r (which is the monster probably closely related to it). I put $1500 down (actually $3000 but I rolled the $1400 termi kit into the financing) and my payments are still $160 a month for 5 years.
