Hot girl on bike

I know some people love T&A and motos, don't get me wrong so do I. Sometimes though, hotness can't be defined by a half naked chick with plastic DD's. It can also be defined by something as "simple" as amazing photography (and a fashion model of course).

What's going on???

For those of you dropping by wondering why we wont update our blog, well we're busy with tons of crap; some moto stuff, a lot of life stuff, and of course some fun stuff. Rest assure we're working hard and soon we'll have something to show for our absence. Tony's working hard on a custom Triumph T100 and I'm trying to get this damn CB500 going.

Until then, enjoy this kick ass video. Ninjas + The Black Keys! deal with that son!

SSM - Poster

For an upcoming artwalk I wanted to showcase a little something using this ultra sexy pic I took earlier this year, so I created this poster for SSM. I think it's save to say sexy boots and vintage power go hand and hand. A limited run will be printed, I'll re-post once that happens.

Hot Helmet of the Day

Bless Italian GQ for "getting it". What does this hot model have to do with motorcycles, you ask? Well, I think it's quite obvious she's helping raise motorcycle safety awareness. That's right, if this girl doesn't make you want to gear up and ride then I don't know what will. Kudos fashion world for contributing to the safe being of riders all around the world.

VVMC Rally - July 11

Hope you had a chance to make it to the VVMC Rally this past weekend. The show had quite a turnout, I'd say twice as big as it was last time I went. After breakfast Tony and I rolled in about 11:30, and it seemed like we got there just in the nick of time. Before we knew it the street was jammed with riders and their bikes. I love VVMC rallies for the simple fact that they attract a lot of vintage Japanese motorcycles. Don't get me wrong I admire all kinds but I have a soft spot for the vintage Japanese motos. The spectator count seemed a little lower but I'm guessing the world cup had something to do with that. There's tons of pix already surfacing, I have a few pix posted of this show and past shows. For really good pix though check out VVMC's facebook, there's tons posted by fans. If you couldn't make it this time, make it a point for the next one.

Born Free 2010

Proof we were actually there! Thanks to Allen

This weekend was crazy busy but we're glad we had a chance to make it out to Born Free 2! After a quick ride around Downtown Long Beach we arrived around 2pm and by then it was completely jam packed. We couldn't get the bikes in the show so we got stuck behind the Vans truck, no biggie. There was tons to admire, bobbers, choppers, baggers and even cafe racers (not to mention some cute rocker chicks). I will have some pix up shortly but until then check out pix from Yukes at So-So's.

Garage Company - Open House 2010

It's been a long time since I've seen my buddy Kiyo. I knew him way back in the Rudolpho days (old rockabilly club). So much has changed since then, but I'm glad to see that Kiyo and his friends at Garage Company have not. Their passion for motorcycles clearly runs deep in their blood. This past Sunday they shared their passion with us all at their open house. Every inch of the place had some type of motorcycle part or piece of motorcycle history. If you ever have a chance to visit, make sure you look up, down and side to side, cause you might miss something if you don't.

Yamaha XS500

So far!


Sooo, remember some time back we were talking about a Yamaha XS500 we'd have rolling in a while? Well, here it is, at least the start of it. Tony and Chris finally decided which direction they wanted to take this bike and I must say it's off to a fuckin good start. Check out the gold wheels! My intentions where to keep you posted on this as much as possible, but Chris has done such a smash up job I'm just going to link his tumblr. More fancy pix to come.

Yup we did it! We love capitalism, what can we say. Our new t-shirt is finally ready for order. Our SSM Tri logo is printed on a fine jersey, black t-shirt, using discharge silkscreen treatment. What does this all mean? Well, it means the t-shirt is soft as hell and so is the silkscreen. When you're out for a ride or enjoying some of that wonderful summer heat, this t-shirt isn't going to feel like hot pan glued to your chest.


This is our basic logo tee, so we're sorry if it isn't splattered with goth wings and old english. If you want that, buy affliction, and roids.

SSM tees are a little more fitted than a standard beefy t-shirt, but they're not skin tight.

If you want it to last for 20+ years dry clean it, if you don't mind a worn down feel dump it in some warm water.


Born Free - Vintage Chopper & Classic Motorcycle Show

Its gotta be good, hell just look at the sponsors! With any luck we'll be seeing you there.

Carburetors 2

Fear not friends, we were able to salvage the carburetors with the broken float tower. Thanks to Tony's handy aluminum welding skills he was able to tack it back together. We got the rebuild finish, sprayed them down and re-installed them. The carbs did leak a little at first but once the needles settled in, everything was a go. The bike fired up effortlessly and stayed on. Before the rebuild we had an annoying idling problem the now seems to be well behind us. I wish we had video of us doing a test run, but we don't sooo you know, maybe next time.

Saturday, January 23, 2010


So, after enjoying a breakfast of champions I spent the rest of the morning touching up my CB550, new battery, new foam air filters and then it came time to rebuild the carbs that would eventually hold these filters. Things were looking good, we picked up some carbs and once I started the tear down, shit went down hill. Two of the bowls were f'd! I cleaned them out and started pulling float pins, can you guess what happened? I broke a fucking float tower. I would go back to the guy who sold them to me but he's a well rounded (real) 1% so, no chance of a refund. Fuck

1970 Honda CL350

There's a new project on the horizon here at Seven Seven Motos and thankfully it's my own private project. We wont be able to touch this one for a while, as we're busy finishing some of the current projects. This CL350 will be getting the full custom treatment, so there's plenty of planning before we even begin the tear down.

Until then check out this killer CL350

1973 CB500 update

There hasn't been much time to write, the Grand National Roadster Show is right around the corner and everybody needs something by then. You may ask yourself why the mad rush for a "roadster" show, the reality is it there's more than just hot rods and customs there. Pretty much every type of early iron is present. Along with the 4 wheeled machines is the ever growing presence of the 2 wheeled machines. For this reason, we're thrashing to get the bikes ready. We don't want to follow the way we want to pave the way. More updates to come, until then enjoy tonight's pix.
