Dime City Diatribe April Edition

Thursday, May 14, 2015 11:54:22 AM America/New_York


Embarking on a new project build is never as easy or straightforward as it might first seem. Not content with that degree of difficulty, we also set ourselves a five week deadline, having it ready to unveil at The Handbuilt Show in Austin TX.

So, we started with a stock 1980 XS 650. The bike was in a very poor state as was the motor. The cylinder walls had been rusted from being left out in the elements without carburetors or an exhaust system.


Essentially, we rebuilt this motorcycle from the ground up. Every nut and bolt was replaced with new hardware. The motor was rebuilt using 80 mm Pistons taking it to a whopping 744cc. We installed oversized titanium valves and seats, a performance cam and blueprinted the crank. Then fitted the motor with 34 mm Mikuni carburetor. Custom-made headers were then fitted with Cone engineering performance slip on mufflers.

We fitted the rear suspension with Ohlin piggyback gas shocks the front suspension was replaced with Race Tech springs and gold valve emulators. We then mated a 17 inch aluminum rim to a CB450 drum hub for a classic vintage look and 19 inch Sun rim to a Triumph Bonneville hub up front. The wheel was then fitted with a 320 mm rotor and a modern twin piston caliper. The rubber front and rear are Avon Distanzia off road tires. We used a 100/80 in the front and a 130/80 in the rear. Performance was the name of the game here.

Finally the wiring deserves a special mention; the entire bike was wired with extremely discreet and nearly invisible LEDs, utilizing MotoGadget’s switches and simplified wiring boxes and widgets.

And what of the performance? Well, it goes like a bat-out-of-hell and it sounds awesome! The fiberglass tank, fenders and lightweight seat along with the removal of unnecessary parts, have all contributed to a tremendous weight loss; the added horse power-to-weight ratio makes this thing really move both on the road and across the dirt.




Since January, we’ve added over 1200 new parts to the NEW PRODUCTS section on dimecitycycles.com

We’ve been inspired by your builds and listened to your requests…and in some cases, demands…so we’ve upped our game to find you even more great ways to build and customize your rides.

Benjamin Smith from Racing Smith, a new garage on the scene in Salem NC, sent us this great story on
a recent build for a customer;

Phillip wanted his bike to be something special to honor his Uncle, a Korean War veteran who had gotten him into riding. Phillip was very passionate about the bike, describing the sounds, smells and speed that
he remembered as a kid. He wanted all that to come back to life! After a couple of phone conversations
he decided that we were the ones for the job!

The bike came to us after not running for over 30yrs and with a VERY tight budget!! There was tons of work to be done. It was the by far the WORST bank of carbs we’ve ever cleaned.

Phillip wanted a rugged look; mag wheels and a military-inspired paint scheme. Also after some discussion, topping out the list was a dual set of headlights and digital speedo via trail techs vapor system. A pair of carefully selected tubeless dual sport tires for heavier bikes like the KLR were utilized for safety and aesthetics.

The bike was a hit! It ran absolutely beautifully after some tuning and handled like a dream believe it or not!!! To accomplish all this, we used my personal Honda CB 650 at the time to supply the Comstar wheel swap, DCC for most of the parts, great friends and a few cold beers!!!

Once again, a big shout out to DCC for help with all our builds, getting things to us fast and always being super cool guys/gals!

Dime City Dispatch March

Monday, April 6, 2015 12:18:23 PM America/New_York




Now in its second year, the Handbuilt Show, designed and curated by those seriously clever boys over at Revival Cycles,are facing that familiar conundrum normally reserved for musicians, filmmakers and Ad men…that is, how to top that first major success?

Last year’s event was a triumph of splendid machinery, art and gasoline culture, meticulously arranged within an old corrugated metal warehouse.

With a handful of carefully selected art displays, the wall of Death and the coolest of vibes that Austin has in bucket-loads, one came away from the weekend feeling all that was right with the world. It certainly felt inclusive, which is one of the main aims of the show.

Not only is the event a dead cert for epic, awesome motorcycle builds, moto art and culture, the weekend beautifully coincides with MotoGP, the premier class of motorcycle racing worldwide, who will be rolling into town for the 2nd round taking place at one of the racers favorites, The Circuit of the Americas.

Not to try to trump that, we’ll also be unveiling something special at the show.

So if you’ve nothing planned, y’all should pop along, take in the spectacle and watch out for some of MotoGP’s finest, who often stop by to admire the magnificence that is the Handbuilt Show.

If you can’t make it, just follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to see highlights from the show in all its spectacular glory.

Click here for more information on the Handbuilt Moto Show






For those of you paying attention, you may have picked up on the fact that we are in the throws of a new build….yep, the very same one that will be making it’s way up to The Handbuilt Show in Austin TX April 10th-11th.

But before we give the game away entirely, we wanted to highlight some of the excellent new products we’ve recently added to dimecitycycles.com. These are no ordinary products as they deliver form and function – beautiful design and ridiculous technical superiority to give maximum performance.

Enough of this hyperbole! We hear you say – just go check this little lot out and see if you can figure out what we’re going to be unveiling at The Handbuilt Show;


It’s all a matter of personal preference and taste…so guess what we did?

This weekend (27 – 29 March), the fearless duo of Scott Turner and Scot Fiedler trekked some serious miles to reach the beautiful NOLA Motorsports Park circuit in New Orleans.

Unlike Roebling Road, this circuit was troublesome at first due to the ongoing construction at the track with the forthcoming Formula 1 racing, so the track was loaded with dust, debris, and ripples from the construction equipment. The track got better throughout the weekend so long as you didn’t get off line or off track as the infield was a swampy mess, due to heavy rainfall.
If you’ve never been to this track, it’s 2.75 miles with a one-mile front stretch and more turns then Roebling Road, which made for more exciting racing in and out of the corners.

From a set up perspective, there were no real major changes from the last race except tire pressure and fuel mileage due to longer track distance and more corners.
From a racers standpoint, racing at NOLA is great fun with more technical corners and a fast long front straight; the overall facility is bigger than most with go kart track, paddock garages, shops, and gear rental.
The team experienced a lot of mechanical issues from piston arms coming out of the block (Scott Turner) to having to borrow a piston and cylinder just to race on Sunday(Scot Fiedler) then tear the motor back down again.

In spite of the challenges, Scot Fiedler came 4th on Saturday and 3rd on Sunday in the Formula 125 class with the difference in time between 2nd and 3rd being only 3 thousandths of a second – a great battle for sure!

Scott Turner got a 1st and a 3rd in Sportsman 500 , a 1st and a 2nd in Sportsman 350.

All in all, a great result, building on the positive start to the season.

Next stop: – Round 3, April 24 – 26 Willow Springs International Raceway, Rosamond CA

March saw us supporting a number of events – VJMC Eustis, Rockers vs Mods (Dallas), Eurobike and Look Twice Cincy.

But one event in particular, Martin Motosport’s Modern Classic event in Boyerton PA, now in its 6 year, has grown into a must-attend event for your calendars.

With over 1400 attendees and over 100 exhibitors, it’s become one of the firm favorites for bike builders and vendors alike. Check out the pictures from this great event and mark your calendars to attend in 2016

CUSTOMER BUILD – Bob Ranew’s Honda CL 450

I finally got around to photographing my first true build. After I purchased a custom bike from John Ryland at Classified Moto (BTW I was his first paying customer) I fell in love with the process of transforming a forgotten bike into something special. So a co-worker, Jerry Bodrie, approached me about helping him build a Honda Scrambler. After searching Craigslist we discovered what looked like a great candidate in Tennessee about 300 miles from Raleigh. So, we borrowed a truck and made the trip. Man, do things always look better in photos. The 1974 CL450 was in pretty bad shape; there was a title and it would crank but that was about it. Almost no brakes (that was a shocker) and a heavy layer of black gunk on most of the mechanicals meant we had our hands full.


After we got it home we carried it down some steps into Jerry’s basement. Each Tuesday night after work we were at it. We took it down to the frame. That was the quick and fun part. Then starting with the fork seals it was one challenge after another. Cutting wires that should have never been touched. Burning the skin off our hands with aircraft stripper. Losing parts, and just making a general mess of things. But looking back on it, we learned from our mistakes and we never gave up.


We replaced the original tank with one from a 1974 CB450 (not a Scrambler) which started to change the look of the bike. As we cut the tail section, painted the wheels and added some vintage Firestone ANS tires, and removed, cut and ground off everything non-essential, the statement this bike was going to make began to emerge. We bolted on all the usual cafe bits and bobs, added some moto bars, fabricated and padded the world’s most uncomfortable seat (which has since been redone), re-built the brakes, cleaned and lightly polished the aluminum parts, fabbed-up a new Scrambler exhaust and also had fun painting the raised letters on the firestone tires. We also got the speedo, grips, gators and shocks from Dime City Cycles.


We didn’t do it all on our own, we did get help from folks more knowledgeable and experienced than us on the trickier items like re-wiring the electrical and re-jetting carbs.


This bike will always remain special to me and it kick-started my next 4 builds at Redeemed Cycles (FB link). The experience demonstrated what I believed to be true: with an eye for design and some basic mechanical aptitude, a regular Joe can actually build a pretty sweet bike.

The Road to Portland – The One Show

The One Show


If you’ve never visited Portland OR…boy, have you have been missing a treat.

If you’ve never attended The One Show, hosted by Thor Drake and his crew from See See Coffee and Motorcycles…you need to start marking those calendars for February 2016!

Our road trip to Portland saw us covering 6300 miles, consuming gallons of gas and an unhealthy amount of caffeine and sugar. From Largo to Nashville, Salt Lake City to Denver Colorado, we had the chance to make new acquaintances, ride our bikes and swap stories of daring do.

This year’s show didn’t disappoint. The array of bikes and genres on display was nothing short of spectacular. Whatever your poison, from Flat Trackers, Scramblers Cafe Racers, Choppers and Bobbers to hardcore racing, there was something for everyone. From professional builds from Roland Sands Designs and Icon, to imaginative builds from local and up and coming builders.

Combine that with a venue of magnificent proportions, it was a truly mesmerizing display of craftsmanship, artistry and talent…all under one very big roof.

Thor – you and the crew from See See Coffee and Motorcycles nailed it.

Here’s to The One Show 2016.


Podium Finishes for the AHRMA Season Opener – Roebling Road, GA

ARHAM opener

Having a little fun at the AHRMA season opener.


Wow, what a weekend that was!

Stepping into the big freeze, our daring duo from Team Scott Racing rose to the challenge and delivered several podium finishes during the AHRMA season opener at Roebling Road GA.

After braving extremely cold conditions during qualifying, Scott Turner and Scot Fiedler were able to shake off the frostbite and place strong grid positions. Battling through the field, Scott Turner netted 2nd in the 500 class and 1st in the 350 class. Scot Fielder was also in the thick of it and delivered a 1st place spot in the 125 class. All in all, a great result for Team Scott Racing and Dime City Cycles.

So, roll on Nola Motorsports March 27-29th. We’re coming to get ya!

Inspiration – Customer Build – Josh Brown’s CB350

Honda CB350

Here’s Josh Brown’s CB350 project – he calls it the Gold Digger. Josh did 95% of the work himself too.

He extended the swing arm five inches, lowered the bike 4″, head light lowered 1 1/2″. Josh even machined a special tachometer plug which he press-fit his wedding ring onto…now that’s dedication!

If you have a build that uses Dime City Cycle Parts – send along some photos to [email protected] and your motorcycle could be featured.

Iron & Clematis, West Palm Beach

We had a great time at Iron and Clematis.

We had a great time at Iron and Clematis.

Motorcycles, rock ‘n roll bands, the beach…and torrential rain!


But that didn’t dampen the spirits as a flood of people turned up to participate in this year’s extravaganza produced by the Vintage Iron Club. We had a blast with our friends from the Ace Cafe and all the other vendors who made the show special.

Check out some of the shots and if you didn’t attend, mark it in your diaries for 2016!

Naked Speed (previously known as Cafe Racer TV) | Begins January 28th

Monday, January 19, 2015 9:00:50 AM America/New_York



It’s hard to believe it’s been over 5 years since we first met with the crew of Cafe Racer TV. The show creators have watched this “garage builder” culture expand and grow, being stoked by the flames of CRTV and other elements and have taken note of it’s evolution. It’s not just about Cafe Racers, anymore. It’s about building, creating, making things from nothing and the importance that plays on the historical chart of motorcycling.

With that thought, we invite you to tune into Velocity Channel’s New Motor Series Naked Speed which premieres on January 28.

There will be plenty to see as hosts master builder Bryan Fuller and motorcycle journalist Mike Seate traverse the planet to provide an insider’s look into the craft and culture of motorcycles.

In each episode, Bryan and Mike discover top builders from all over the world, join them in stripping down bikes to bare metal and then highlight their transformation into fast and stylish, race-ready machines. From café racers, to street fighters, to land speed bikes, they tackle some of the most challenging builds.

We are proud to be a part of Naked Speed. Our “Ace build premieres on March 4th at 10 PM it highlights “The Building of the Ace” utilizing a a Triton, modern Triumph and Norton equipment for our client The Ace Café with OG Marc Wilsmore as the judge and jury. The show also follows our journey to England as we gain knowledge about the British bike culture. chat up Rockers, ride down to Brighton Beach and trespass into the Triumph factory. After all what would life be like without a little rule breaking.

The Dime City Dispatch, November ’14 | Naked Speed, New Triumphs and Other News!

Monday, November 17, 2014 3:07:47 PM America/New_York

| Dime City News & Updates – Naked Speed, the TV show formerly known as “Cafe Racer”

Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 11.04.14 AM

Time sure does fly! It’s hard to believe that It’s been four years since Cafe Racer TV made it’s first debut on Velocity. It’s been a hell of a ride and we’ve enjoyed it immensely. The show connected us with not only customers who’ve become an extended family, but also other builders. As a result of it events have been created, talent united and garage builder culture kicked off on a global level.

As a result of the expansive-ness that is motorcycling and rebirth of Garage builder culture, the team behind Cafe Racer TV has taken note from all the viewer comments. You want to see more bikes, different bikes and different parts of the culture. Well, Naked Speed, the revamped show has all of it! We caught up with the shows Executive Producer Ed Coughlin and asked him to tell us a bit more about the name (and content) change.

Here’s what he had to say:

“It’s actually pretty simple.  From the first episode produced, the network has always loved the program.  I am constantly told the style, pace, and rotating talent separate it from a gaggled congestion of car shows currently on air.  That said, the cars (everyone drives one) will always outperform the bikes when it comes to the all-important ratings game.  In an an effort to attract more of our four wheeled friends, and even some fellow bikers who might not be cool enough to ride a cafe, the title Naked Speed was chosen.  Now I agree, the title ‘Naked’ is hot right now (even overused) but you have to admit, naked speed is a pretty darn good description of what a true cafe racer is all about.

Add Master Builder (of cars and bikes) Bryan Fuller, who plays nicely, but differs greatly in his opinions from returning host Mike Seate, pressure packed builds with demanding clients, difficult deadlines, and world class test riders and I am confident we will see another five seasons of TV’s coolest and fastest sixty-minute ride!”

We couldn’t agree more Ed!

Stay tuned for more details on the show. For now all we can tell you is that the first episode will air on Jan. 28th at 10PM on Velocity (check your local listings) and Dime City Cycles has something special in store that involves our pals across the pond from Ace Cafe London as well as Triumph Motorcycles.

| Industry & Partner News – Things are best in threes, Triumph announces three new Modern Classics

Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 12.15.01 PM

Things have been very busy at Triumphs facility in Hinckley. In addition to keeping up with the demand their brand now commands in the industry on a global scale, they’ve managed to find time to work on special projects. Recently, when Herm and Jason were in London visiting the factory the “R&D” area was quarantined off like ground zero and our Triumph hosts made every point to keep us as far away from it as possible. Now we see why…

The first model introduced in their line-up is the Ace Thruxton, inspired by Ace Cafe London and the original Triumph Cafe Racers of yesteryear the ream at Triumph worked hand-in hand with Mark Wilsmore, Managing Director of Ace Cafe, to ensure what was captured in the bike was the absolute essence of the Ace.

Built to celebrate Triumphs association with the legendary Ace Cafe in North London it sports a unique paint and decal scheme, a sculpted OxBlood custom seat with detachable cowling, authentic bar-end mirrors and a handlebar plaque noting the number on the production line. There’s only going to be 1550 of these made, so if Cafe Racers are your thing and you bleed tea and oil – we highly suggest putting in a call to your local Triumph dealer today!

The second model introduced in their line-up is the T214 Bonneville which celebrates the achievements of Texas-born racer Johnny Allen, and his record-breaking Triumph-powered Cee-Gar streamliner, which in 1956, set the first of many land speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats by recording a two-way average of 214.4mph.

The “Texas Cee-Gar,” a Triumph Thunderbird 650 powered, methanol-fueled motorcycle with a streamlined bodyshell was built by airline pilot J.H. “Stormy” Mangham, and Fort Worth dealer, tuner and 2001 Motorcycle Hall of Fame inductee, Jack Wilson and piloted by legendary Texas racer Johnny Allen. On 6th September 1956 , AMA and FIM observers looked on as Allen set the world absolute speed record for a motorcycle at 214.40 mph. The now-classic 1959 Triumph Bonneville was named in tribute to the Texas Cee-Gar team’s record-setting efforts.

The 214.4 mph land speed record lasted until 1962 and was broken by Bill Johnson, riding the nitro methane powered Dudek Triumph streamliner to a speed record of 224.57. If these go 1/4 as fast as the original Cee-Gar did you’re gonna lose your opportunity to get your hands on one!


The third model introduced in their line-up is the Newchurch Bonneville which celebrates Triumphs involvement in the annual Tri-Days event that literally takes over the town of Newchurch, Austria. It sports a contemporary new paint scheme (two options available), has blacked out fenders, headlamp bucket, mirrors and springs as well as black wheels with exquisite red pinstriping and a custom seat. What’s not to love?

Every year a small town in the mountains of Austria plays host to the world’s biggest Triumph party as thousands of Triumph fans descend to celebrate their love of the brand and the bikes they own. Featuring everything from outrageous customs to an off-road drag race known as “The Rumble”, the town of Neukirchen has its name changed to Newchurch for the weeklong Tridays party.

The Tridays party is an annual pilgrimage for Triumph owners to descend on the beautiful town of Newchurch and celebrate all things British.  Along with spectacular mountain road rides, incredible stunt shows, and off road duelling, Tridays is the place where Triumph owners show off their latest customized rides. This special edition Bonnie pays homage to the event, the bikes and the people who customize them. It doesn’t get any more involved than that!

| Events Updates & News – Ace Corner Barber 2014

Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 3.52.42 PM

This year saw the 4th annual Ace Corner at the 10th annual Barber Vintage festival. To say it was a success would be an understatement. The Corner was packed the entire weekend! At a few points, the event space actually met capacity and we had to wait for bikes to clear out before we could allow any more in. Talk about packin’ them in!

Starting out on Friday the air was perfect, not too cold and not too hot. The bikes started to file in one after another, pistons rumbling exhaust shaking riders with their teeth clenched in anticipation. What a site! Once parked they had the opportunity to peruse the hand-picked vendors on premise and their quality goods.

Of course, Ace Cafe was there with fellow UK based brand Red Torpedo who actually brought Connor Cummings, Isle of Mann TT racers to the corner for a series of interviews and autograph signings. From South Florida the fellows from Xcrambler Cycles joined in on the fun with some high quality BMW Scramblers as well as fine art by way of Moto prints. Talk about classy! The big boys from Barnluck showed up as well with a double sized tent that housed an amalgamation of unique items all inspired by this rust and revival movement we’re a part of. Of course the usual suspects like Legendary Motorcycles, Iron and Air and Triumph were represented as were others.


Saturday saw tons of commentary by Ace Corners very own Bree Poland talking to everyone from Triumph sponsored rider Alena Meyers to Connor Cummings to vendors and partners who participated in the Corner. Racing, of course was happening all the while in the background and even attracted the attention of some AHRMA riders like Dime City’s very own Scott Turner and Martin Milanese during their breaks. You know the vantage point of the track must be something special if racers are leaving the pits to come watch from the corner, right?


As the day turned into afternoon our bike show judges were corralled at the top of the hill to gauge the over 75 machines brought in from riders as far as Canada. Everything from custom Cafe Race Nortons to modern Ducati’s were present all the likes in between of Bobbers, Brats and Choppers even too! (The show is open to anyone on a custom.) Into the evening we hosted a very special Triumph VIP party along with live music from The Cigar Store Indians. Christmas lights strung from tent to tent, old friends chatting, new friends being made – the energy was literally, alive. The read text and look at photos of Ace Corner, even watch video hardly does it justice. It’s one of those things like riding the Pacific Coast Highway or riding from coast of Spain to France, you have to experience it in order to truly appreciate it.

If you’re interested in becoming a partner of Ace Corner email [email protected] and get on the list. We’re expecting max capacity next year not only from guests but, partners too and are planning a full year in advance as a result of it.

| Dime City Customer Build Feature – Aaron Millers CL350 Brat / Scrambler


When we posted Aaron Millers CL350 on Instagram and received over 1,000 and 50 comments in under an hour we knew we stumbled upon our next DCC customer biker build feature. Aaron has taken two favorite styles and melded them together for visual (and physical we bet if you rode it!) perfect. The low slung style of a Brat machine with a bench seat combined with high-pipes, knobby tires and upright bars are the makings for something that goes fast and can get sideways in the dirt. Way to go Aaron!

Do you have a finished build project? What are you waiting for, get out there with your iPhone (or better yet get a friend with a nice camera) and take some shots of that beauty and send them our way. We wanna see them and maybe your little speed machine can be our next feature!

Email [email protected] w/ subject “Dime City Customer Feature” and include some photos and details on the bike. It’s that easy!

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


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


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


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

Checkout this slick little CB550 Cafe Racer Bob Ranew pulled from the 1978 time-warp turning it into a TON-UP terror. Way to go Bob! Love the DCC seat, grips and other bits and pieces used!

Do you have a finished build project? What are you waiting for, get out there with your iPhone (or better yet get a friend with a nice camera) and take some shots of that beauty and send them our way. We wanna see them and maybe your little speed machine can be our next feature!

Email [email protected] w/ subject “Dime City Customer Feature” and include some photos and details on the bike. It’s that easy!

| 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.
