DCCacecornerpilots

 

We’ve got your Pro Racing covered too, with appearances by British road racer Conor Cummins, AMA Triumph Pro SuperSport racer Elena Myers, and our own AHRMA racer Scott Turner from Team Scott Racing.  Stop by and absorb knowledge!

Head to the Ace Corner Facebook event page for the latest updates.

Conor Cummins - At just 27 years of age, Conor is one of the hottest prospects currently plying his trade on the roads. He was fastest newcomer at the TT and the NW200 in 2006, secured the first of four TT podiums in 2009 and is the third fastest rider in the history of the event, as well as holding the record for the fastest lap from a standing start at 131.5mph.

Elena Myers - In just two short years, Elena Myers has made quite a name for herself in the AMA Pro Racing community. In her first season as a pro rider, she made history by becoming the first female to win an AMA Pro Road Racing sprint race with a SuperSport West victory at Infineon Raceway in 2010. Myers achieved her second career win at Daytona International Speedway in March 2012, becoming the first woman ever to win a professional motorsports race at the famous racetrack.

Scott Turner – Head of the Dime City sponsored AHRMA Team, Scott has been racing and building Honda 350′s that go from the track to the street, and from the junkyard to the show.  He’s one of the nicest and most knowledgeable people that we know!

Dime City Cycles, The Black Motorcycles & John Varvatos

Thursday, June 5, 2014 10:00:41 AM America/New_York

Custom John Varvatos Edition Motorcycle built by The Black Motorcycles with support from Dime City Cycles to create a one-of-a-kind CB750 Cafe Racer to be auctioned for charity.

 

Dime City Cycles, John Varvatos & Black Motorcycles create a one of a kind CB750 Cafe Racer

Nil Satis Nisi Optimum, the Dime City credo. Nothing but the best is good enough. A statement that rings true to fashion designer John Varvatos and The Black Motorcycles of NYC. It only made sense when the duo, who was working together to create a hand-built CB750 Cafe Racer to auction off to benefit the rock n’ roll focused charity, Road Recovery, contacted us to see if we wanted to be involved as their premier parts supplier for all non-handmade pieces on the motorcycle.

The project was right up our alley. Taking a lonely old 80’s CB750 and turning it into a custom one-off speed machine while leveraging the design prowess of not only The Black Motorcycles, but John Varvatos himself. From accouterments such-as leather wrapped grips crafted by Christina Z Antonio Leather Artisans and gear-shift accents made from the finest materials available to hand-made alloy bodywork, the project was spoke to us as one of quality and vision. Throw in the philanthropic bend and we were sold!

The bike is finished and the public auction via Charitybuzz begins very soon, June 19th (see details below) and we’re headed to NYC on June 26th for the unveiling of this gorgeous hand-built piece of machinery. Get involved, help spread the word about Road Recovery and all the good they do for at-risk teens through music and if you feel lucky, place a bid!

Follow The Black Motorcycles on Instagram / Follow John Varvatos on Instagram checkout #JVCafeRacer – and keep an eye on our social feed over the coming weeks for photos from the build process as well as teasers of the completed machine!

About The Bike

The Custom John Varvatos Edition Cafe Racer built by The Black Motorcycles with support from Dime City Cycles will be revealed to the public at an unveiling event in New York City on June 26, 2014. John Varvatos has teamed up with The Black Motorcycles to create a custom fabricated 1980 CB750c Cafe Racer motorcycle. Working hand-in-hand, The Black Motorcycles and John Varvatos set out to design a motorcycle combining the signature artistry and rock n’ roll style of John Varvatos with the expertise and craftsmanship of The Black Motorcycles. In addition, The Black Motorcycles worked closely with Dime City Cycles to source many of the parts used on the JV Custom build.

This unique collaboration, merging masters of their trade has created a truly one-of-a-kind piece of machinery. The JV Series 1000 model was specially crafted to help raise funds for the non-profit organization Road Recovery to reach 1000 at-risk teens through its outreach programs. The motorcycle features chromed steel components, rich artisanal leathers and handcrafted details, balancing function and authentic beauty. Designed to be street ready, this custom motorcycle can be displayed at a residence, in a showroom or road-raced.

“Ponyboy” a stellar CB450 Cafe Racer by Hangar Cycleworks

Monday, December 30, 2013 9:08:05 AM America/New_York

New Years tends to bring somewhat sophomoric resolutions for folks such as: I’ll go to the gym more often, I won’t eat ice cream but once a week or I’ll call my mother more often.

Well, clearly for Ryan Shaw of Hangar Cycleworks 2014 is going to be a year of epochal resolutions…

Having given up corporate life to pursue his freedom as an artist and creator, Ryan recently took up residence in the same dingy loft garage Jason did when he and Herm started Dime City back in 2009.

If he and his teams first build is any indication of what’s to come out of that 1100sf shop over the next few years we’re all in for a real treat.

They’ll be focusing on a few select high-end builds, engine refurbishing and other custom work to keep the lights on. So give ‘em a like on Facebook, follow them on Instagram and make sure stop by there if you’re making your way over to DCC. You won’t be disappointed!

See the full photos and review care of our pals at Iron & Air Magazine here – [http://bit.ly/1jZUPwn]
