| Dime City News & Updates – A New website to launch soon!

mabelteaser

It’s hard to believe it’s been 5 years since we launched the original Dime City website. Not only has a TON changed in the DIY garage builder aftermarket, technology has changed too. Yes, we know it’s taken us a while, but trust us – you’ll be more excited than a BSA getting a new Mikuni carburettor!

While we can’t share too many of the details, we can show you the screenshot above along with some of the details below. Stay tuned, the new site will be launching sometime around the first of the year!

  • Improved search feature with MUCH better results when multiple keywords are used
  • Enhanced customer profiles with inteligent parts display for bikes loaded into your profiles
  • New DCC and Customer build feature galleries with parts hotlinking and display
  • Improved IOS and Android viewing for those ordering right from their benches with greasy fingers (can’t help the dirty screens, sorry!)
  • Faster load times with new server technology and content management system


| Industry & Partner News – Legendary Motorcycles releases “Tracker” line of products

legendary-motorcycles-abs-plastic-trackster-tracker-seat-6_1

Legendary Motorcycles, a leader in boutique and genre specific aftermarket parts for DIY garage builders has just announced a line of Street Tracker related products. We’ve got our hands on a hand-full of them before anyone else has so we could give you our opinion. Trust us, you’re gonna love them!

Taking the same high quality processes they use when making their Cafe Racer line of products Legendary has created a platform for those looking to build vintage (and modern classic) customs that fit the profile of Street and Dirt Tracker. Founder and head designer, Dave Ashenbrener has this to say about their new Tracker line:

“I always loved the Harley XR Flattrackers and when I decided to design our interpretation of Tracker body work I’ll admit, I pulled heavily from those. How could you not?  They’re gorgeous! So we started out with hand-carved foam molds like all our products and after test fitting and multiple shaping sessions we 3D scanned the prototypes and took them through the process of thermal forming to creating the single seamless piece above. Initially we only have the one seat and tank, but if there is demand for a smaller size for example, we’ll consider putting them into production.”

So you heard it here first, if you’re looking to build a Tracker for your next project give Legendary a look via Dime City Cycles. We’ve litterally sold thousands of their Cafe Racer seats and tanks to date and the reviews are nothing but rave. And if that’s not enough to put you over the edge, they’re all made right here in the good ‘ol US of A in sunny Florida where the Flat Track Gods are worshiped on a regular basis!

| Events Updates & News - The 2014 Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride

DGR_2013_Gentleman-2

To say the least this years DGR Tampa ride saw an uptick from last year. Honestly, we had to even admit it, but in 2013 there were only 15 riders. Yes yes, we know… Pathetic. Cut us a little bit of slack though, those Australians are really slow at responding to emails!

Seriously though, 2014 was a great year for the DGR not only in Tampa, but world-wide. We had approximate 130 riders join us for a beautiful ride through both Clearwater Beach and Historic Ybor City. It couldn’t have been more perfect!

The morning started with coffee and dougnuts at the Dime City Garage where we saw everything from an Ariel to Ural and dozens of other cool bikes in between. After a brief safety meeting we settled into three groups and left in waves headed for our first destination, New World Brewery in Tampa where they greated us with cold refreshments and a pizza buffet.

From there the ride of disguished gentlmen (and ladies) made their way through historic Tampa down to Bayshore for a gorgeous ride down one of Tampa’s most icon roadways. The sun was shining and the motors a plenty!

We headed across the Gandy Bridge from there (where several may or may not have hit the TON and beyond!) through St. Pete to our final destination for the day, Green Bench Brewery. Talk about the perfect location to end a ride! Plenty of space and tables outside, fans, games to play and a full menu of craft brews.

If the smiles in the photos weren’t enough to tell you the event was a success just take a look at Tampa’s placement on the total fund raising list. No. 19 world-wide out of 220 regions raising just over $19,000.00, not too bad! And did we mention the DGR as a whole grossed over $1.4million, which was a full 400k more than their goal!

If you missed this years DGR we strongly suggest getting plugged in an involved next year, there’s no doubt the event will get better and better.

| New Products from The Wing’d Piston – Gaerne G-RT Racing Boots

file_23_120

When you guys speak we listen! And one of the things we’ve been hearing is that we do not have a broad enough offering of boots for the different styles of riding. As a start we’ve added the new Gaerne G-RT riding boots with more to come. Like your custom garage built speed machines the devil is in the details with these gems! First-off, they’re waterproof which is awesome especially if you live somewhere like Florida that gets rain every day! The uppers are constructed from full grain leather, the inner liner is made from Gaerne’s own “Drytech” material which helps keep your feet nice and fresh.

In addition, they have a hinged design which makes movement when walking and shifting effortless, they’ve got a wrap around heel cup for extra protection, they sport a newly redesigned front plat, extra ankle padding and a double side closing system for easy off-and-on no matter if you’re in your living room or at the track and last but not least, they have a non-slip sole that’s oil resistant which is great seeing as how most of us have oil girls in the garage that love to leak oil!

Interested? Checkout the Gaerne G-RT photos and details here

| AHRMA Update from the Dime City Race Team - Scott, Martin and Scot

Screen Shot 2014-10-14 at 6.35.05 PM

Most recently our race team setup shop at the Barber Vintage Festival. All three members of our team have been going strong in their respective classes in addition to settling into the routine of having teammates.

On the first day Scott Turner started in Sportsman 350. With 27 riders lined up he was able to take the hole shot, but mechanical issues with the muffler left him finishing 6th. In his second race of the day, in Sportsman 500 with 20 riders lined up he took the hole-shot again and was able to finish 4th. Woo hoo Team Scott! In Race 3, CB160 LeMans there were 24 riders in the total field and he finished 4th overall, again.

On day two, he took 5th in Sportsman 350 and 6th in LeMans 160 with a nice little battle with team rider Martin at the end. Nothing like a little friendly competitiveness between teammates, right? Scott is headed to Daytona for the wrap up race of the year next. Currently he sits 2nd overall in Sportsman 350, 5th in Sportsman 500 and 3rd in CB160 LeMans. Overall, he’s happy with his current standings and so are we!

Scott’s teammate, Martin Milanese, started out slow and steady given this was his first race since a crash earlier in the season. Most of practice was spent breaking through the mental barrier created after hitting the asphalt at a high rate of speed. That and tweaking the bikes.

When Saturday came Martin started out in the GP200 race with Lil’ Blue. Unfortunately a failed ignition switch resulted in a DNF. In CB160 LeMans he started next to teammate Scott Turner and held position number 2 for quite some time. Though after a lap or so, the modifed gearing he chose pulled him further and further into the pack resulting in a 6th place finish. No so bad, but he made sure to change the gears back as soon as arriving back in the pits.

His third and final set for the day was in Thruxton Cup, the increasing popular and competitive class that appears to be a favorite of everyone of late. He had a great start, but lost a few places in the second turn due to lack of heat on the front tire. A few laps in a rider went down which forced the racers to the hot pit where the heat of the engines and a Alabama sun raised the stakes and tensions even higher.

Finally back out on the track he ran into a similar problem with the front tire and lost grip pushing it too hard forcing him out way wide where he lost 5 positions. After battling heat and the other competitive riders he was able to pull back forward to a 7th place finish out of 26 overall. Not to bad in our opinion! On Sunday he managed 8 out of 35 in GP200, 5th out of 24 in 160 LeMans and 10th in Thruxton cup. Not a bad finish at all!

And now for the under-dog, Scot Fielder. Our own resident metal bender and (don’t let him tell you we said this) best rider in our group. On Friday Scott wasn’t so luck as Scott with two t’s. He came in hot on turn 4 and crashed the little GP machine he’s been piloting. Nice one Scot, considering we just did a complete restoration on it! After some massaging to the bodywork with teammate Martin and a new throttle assembly care of Herm and the guys at TC Bros he was able to get back out on the track and continue practice.

On Saturday the Gods of Speed were smiling upon him and after some serious laps and trading places with fellow riders he was able to finish 8th. Which is pretty damn good if you ask us for a new racer and the largest and strongest field represented at Barber in his class. Sunday he finished 6th and had a great battle with Bryan Bradford #791, banging bars and trading paint giving it hell out there.

Currently Scot sits 3rd in his class out of 18 total racers. He’s continuing to grow his skillset as a racer and spends every moment watching his recap movies. We’ll-beit, a bit like Howard Hughes re-watching his movies over and over again looking for areas to improve, he’s a bit insane… But we love him and know he’ll be a racer to contend with as the seasons go on and he get’s more time in the saddle.

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!
