I can contribute my bike, not sure if it's /fa/ but I'm fond of it..
>google old time actor with "motorcycle"
Bonneville is god tier
Nimbus tho, danes never fail
just won the bid on. and for /fa/ attire, if you arent riding in a t shirt and jeans, and a jacket if its cold, why are you even browsing. you best not be wearing riding boots and a leather jumper and browse /fa/
I just bought a motorbike
the bike is red
suggest looks for me /fa/
right now I want to wear a white leather Jacket and white driving gloves, and I'll probably get a white helmet and.....combat boots?
but I'm not sure what style I should go for or where to cop.
should I do something super feminine? androgynous? masculine?
how does one look like an attractive biker-girl who isn't a dyke?
The color of the bike matters a lot less than the make and model. You should base your leathers on how safe they are, not what style they are or how attractive they are. Nothing is attractive on scarred, mangled skin.
Try stuff on at a local bike shop and to start, buy stuff you like online. Lurk /o/ a bit for gear recs. Don't buy a used helmet
bike is like this (I have a 1980 Honda C70/supercub). mine is more of a faded strawberry than the cherry-red in this photo.
so it's a motorbike, not quite a full-on motorcycle. only does ~55mph, so streets only.
when I have the money I'll do some upgrades and try to take it to 65 or 70mph
yeah i am
I plan on a full face helmet, I don't like having shit coming at my face, and I would like to be able to put on makeup and not have the wind whisk it away.
I'll start lurking /o/. I'm not getting a used helmet, thats gross, lol
I plan to be safe yeah, but I want to look aesthetic as well.... body armour and leather and such can only protect me so much especially since if I do get into some kind of collision they aren't going to accomplish as much as I'd like.
but maybe I'm biased from riding a bicycle so much and being hit periodically.
C A L I
1970s honda are GOAT
especiall trail 70s and trail 110s
but yeah, check out the >>>/o/dbt/
that thing isn't a scooter, it's a real motorcycle, just not freeway legal
get a helmet, leather gloves, and semi sturdy jacket, denim or leather is fine. The jacket is partly to keep the weather off you.
if you are really concerned about getting hurt, find a jacket with elbow and back protection.
but you'll be fine, that thing won't get over 50 and you'll be on city streets.
lel, it's a motorcycle dude
people dress them up differently
yooooo, I am in california, hahahaha
i wanted a trail 110 actually, but I couldn't find one, so I settled with the C70; I wish I had gotten a later model though, becausee switching out the electricity and such and is gonna SUCK
thanks for the /o/ link!
this, honda used to build their engines to last 25+ years until they found out it was mopre profitable to have them run only for 5-10 years like GM figured out in the 60's/
but in the 70's-90's you got shit like forged cranks, oil jets, forged connecting rods, hand polished intake and exhaust ports, forged pistons on some very rare engines
and the manual transmissons they made could take a beating, people made 500+ horse to the wheels on a turbo motor and the only things that were breaking constantly were the CV joints
Hey guys, I really, REALLY want a cheap cafe racer. I'm gonna be working a lot over the summer and basically putting my money towards getting one, but I honestly have no idea HOW to get one.
Would I go to some sort of dealership or order it online and have it shipped to me? I highly doubt I'll have any luck with craigslist. Also do you need a motorcycle license to ride a cafe racer if it only goes up to about 55 mph?
Any sort of insight or recommendations for cheap minibikes would be amazing. I'm pretty smitten with the honda trail series atm.
1) dig up a cheap japanese motorcycle
2) cut all the extraneous bits off
3) optional: add a cover to the back of the seat so your butt doesn't slide off
I think I got minibikes like the honda trail series mixed up with cafe racers. They were really small and about as powerful as a scooter, depending on the model. If I remember correctly there's sort of a grey area in terms of whether or not you need a license to ride one because they're practically a scooter made to look like a small bike.
look dude calm down i made a post asking people about motorcycles so i can learn more about them and learn how to go about possibly getting my own.
What good would lurking more do this is a fucking fashion board not a motorcycle board
Why? So I can get shat on even more and look like even more of a retard? I just thought a thread on /fa/ about motorcycles would be a good place to ask this stuff, obviously I was horribly wrong.
How did I do?
Helmet - AGV Corsa White
Jacket - Martin Margiela
Boots - SLP
Gloves - lewis leather
it's too bad honda doesn't really export the superubs anymore, some of the new models are aesthetic as fuck!
>Any sort of insight or recommendations for cheap minibikes would be amazing. I'm pretty smitten with the honda trail series atm.
where are you?
the trails are harder to come by in the US, I found my bike on craigslist, I'd start there.
sometimes people sell bikes on ebay
hitting up a dealership might give you a few leads
it's easier if you know exactly what you want imo
for the cafe racer bit, you'd do better to convert a bike, instead of trying to find one thats already in that style. alot of cafe racers were custom and such
>I think I got minibikes like the honda trail series mixed up with cafe racers.
moped (puch, etc)
scooter (vespa, etc)
mini bikes (honda trail, honda cub, etc)
'motocycles' (harley, etc)
licensing depends on location/jurisdiction.
/fa/ is about fashion, not motorbikes.
swallow your pride and ask on /n/ or /o/ there are bike threads up rn anyway; don't be stupid anon.
looks good I think but >>9612451
well, I get down to LA once a month or so.
I've got a bigger touring bike I ride.
we could meet up or go for a ride or something.
it'd be p cool to kick with a girl who rides ;v
if you think about it, mopeds are pretty /fa/ too.
ha, that'd be fun; I saved ur #!
but don't forget I'm not a rider ~yet~ i still don't have my class c license or all the riding gear, haha
but soooooooooooooon anon!
