Ergonomics Simulator Website


If you’re always shopping for your next bike, this website will be a useful tool. The site is an ergonomics simulator and it lists seat height, rider forward lean angle, knee angle and hip angle for classic and modern motorcycles. Do you have a bike that fits you well? Type in the make and model, and see the ergo measurements of your current bike. Have you ridden something lately that didn’t fit you well? Look up the ergos, and note the differences. Next time you’re bike shopping online, punch in the model. There’s a good chance it will tell you whether that’s a bike you’ll be comfortable on or not. cycle-ergo.com

Teton Touring Coat by Vanson Leathers


Vanson has been making high-quality leathers for motorcyclists since 1974, and their Teton Touring Coat is a product we’ve been looking forward to trying out. Made of Firenze (medium weight) leather and waxed cotton, this European-style touring jacket features CE-approved armor at the elbows and shoulders, competition double leather at the elbows and shoulders, and it will accept a back pad. The top front pockets roll up to reveal vents, and there are vents in the arms and back. Look for a more thorough review coming soon. Starting at $749.

Hot Shot Starter Motor by Rick's Motorsport Electrics


Rick’s provides a variety of starter motors and charging system upgrades for many Asian and European motorcycles. Rick’s new Hot Shot starter motor for the Honda CB350/360 replaces the old Mitsuba design with an updated 21st century permanent magnet design. Gone are the field coil windings that shorted out and the brush plate that overheated and rusted! This allows the Rick’s starter motor to produce more power than the original. This model fits 1968-1973 CB350K Twin, 1968-1973 CL350, 1970-1971 SL350K, 1974-1976 CB360 and 1974-1976 CL360. $169.95.

Old School Speed Rearsets


Dime City Cycles offers several kinds of rearsets, but this kit from Old School Speed is built specifically for the Honda CB350. MC ad man Shane Powers just happens to be setting up a CB350 to go AHRMA racing with, so we ordered a pair. This is a complete kit, and it includes mounts, offset levers, folding footpegs, linkage arms and all the necessary mounting hardware, along with full installation instructions. $220.

Kawasaki H1 Intake Manifold Adapter Kit by HVC Cycle


HVC Cycle has been providing parts and service to the 2-stroke community for more than a decade. Its latest new trick part is this Kawasaki H1 Intake Manifold Adapter Kit. Old carburetors wear out and the parts for them get harder to find. These adapters allow you to mount brand-new Mikuni VM round slide carbs to your classic H1. The original intake bores are oval, and the inside of this adapter tapers from the oval intake shape of the cylinder to the round shape of modern Mikunis intake boots. $175.

Compact Digital Voltmeter by Aerostich

 Compact Digital Voltmeter

Knowing how your charging system is functioning is a vital piece of information, especially on classic machinery that may still be using some original electrical hardware. This Compact Digital Voltmeter from Aerostich tells the charging rate of your bike in real time. Mount it to a fairing, instrument panel or triple clamp. It’s easy to install by connecting to any circuit that is powered when your bike is running. $13.

The Comprehensive Vintage Motorcycle Price Guide Returns

We’re happy to announce a new version of a resource book we use here at the office on a regular basis: an update of The Comprehensive Vintage Motorcycle Price Guide.

Now in its 16th edition, the 416-page guide offers pricing info for more than 100 different marques. At just 4 inches by 6.5 inches, this pocket guide is a great resource to carry with you as you travel to swap meets, bike shows, shops and anywhere else you might run into a bike for sale.

The intro to the book explains how the values are determined and also gives advice on how to grade and evaluate a motorcycle, along with explanations of its six-level grading scale. More than 120,000 prices are offered.

The guide is compiled and run by the Motorcycle and Model Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and sales of the book benefit the museum’s foundation, a nonprofit group. More than 350 experts contribute to make this guide as accurate and up-to-date as possible.

We’ve offered older editions of this book in the past, and when it has sold out, we’ve had readers call pleading to help us track down a copy, so we’re thrilled to be able to offer this updated guide. Price: $14.95. For more info, visit our online store.
