RetroFit


It's 50 degrees out so it's bath time. Can't see it in the photo but the Voodoo Child is an absolute mess. Gotta get her all prettied up for @cheapthrillsnj in two weeks. Hope the weather is just as warm #cheapthrillsnj #voodoochild #xs650 #choppervia Instagram

Another #tbt. Look at these hooligans. Same #steib #sidecar another #CB750 also owned by Billy (seated behind the bars). Take note of the frame, can anyone guess what it is? First correct answer wins a medium sized RetroFit T cause that's all I got left at the moment.via Instagram

#tbt here's a little Throw Back Thursday. Billy's panhead around the early '70s with the same #steib #sidecar that's on the CB750 now. #thehack #panheadchoppervia Instagram

Decisions... decisions... I managed to find the original style springer the Voodoo Child once had, same length and all. I sold the original one about 10 years ago and recently began to regret it. I'm really surprised in found another. Don't let the shiny appearance fool you, this thing is fucked which I'm not happy about. I knew there were repairs but the guy failed to tell me it was bent... major springer overhaul in the future. For now I'm just happy it exists. #xs650chopper #SIEspringer #voodoochildvia Instagram

This is probably one if the most amazing and sentimental Christmas gifts I have ever received. My girl @miss_mundy gave me a hard cover book coffee table book covering every single bike I've owned, past and present, along with many other great photos I've forgotten about over the years. Yeah I cried, mission accomplished babe. #mindblown #bestgfever #shesakeepeervia Instagram

Turns out our new cat Spliffy, made herself a kitteh tent. She seemed right at home. Until she started clawing the seat, then I kicked her out. Sorry Spliff... #russianblue #chopperkitteh #kitten #voodoochild #xs650

via Instagram http://ift.tt/2enoBK9The sidecar cb750 motor cleaned up pretty nice. New rings and gaskets she'll be ripping off the bias plys off those VW rims soon enough. Fun story, turns out I was lied to over 10 years ago that this was an 836 motor. It's not, totally stock bore BUT has a cam from a '69 motor. So that explains why it's so snappy, so it's not all bad. It pulled the sidecar just fine. Just needed a little freshening up. #cb750 #thehack #stieb
