very enthusiast with any amount of internet miles ridden has seen builds using steel, aluminum, titanium, fiberglass and carbon fiber, but this little Monster employs a material that very few people are familiar with; basalt fiber.

"Back in November last year, with months of Montreal winter looming large and my cruiser square- wheeled for the foreseeable, I decided if I couldn't ride a bike for a while then building one would be the next best thing. I found a non-starting '81 Honda CB750K locally and - after asking a mate what questions I should ask the seller in order to sound like I knew what I was talking about pushed it 10kms home after handing over a couple of bills.

"A few years back when I was about 18, the vintage motorcycle bug, in the form of a 1976 Suzuki GT250 bit me hard. The bike was out for sale a few miles from my house, and man was she sexy. Running and in very nice shape for its age, she was begging to be mine. I spoke with the guy and swapped him a paltry $75 bucks for my soon to be freedom machine. In my then blissful ignorance, before I bought it, he told me 'it doesn't have a title, but you can just go get one.' HA! To this day I wish it were that easy..."

In 1978, lots of things were going on. Fonzi was jumping the shark, production of the VW Beetle was finally halted, and gold reached an all time high of $200 per ounce.

After selling off the XS650 bobber in 2015, Nate went on the hunt for a Triumph to build. It wasn't more than a week later that he stumbled across a '69 Bonnie basket case up near Gurnee, IL, about 2.5 hrs away. There wasn’t much information in the ad and the pics weren’t any better... but, it was a '69 which is a great vintage.

In 1978 while in High School Jim Platek bought a brand new Yamaha XS500, a road bike with an 8-valve double overhead cam 4-stroke twin cylinder. This started a 37 year "bond" with the bike. “It was my commuter, tourer, road racer, and dragracer. I finally decided that it was time to change things up, and I parted out all but the frame, switchgear, gas tank, and mirrors.”
