Crashing the hawk just means I can finish her properly. Want an extra 15-20hp, ditching the dampening in the front for some some different shims, fixing what smashed, adding another .5 of a gallon to that tank, a bit of wiring, bring the trail down a tad then paint the sucker. Back soon kids. 📸 @dadhammer #lurkshop #LIC #NYC

But for real, once I fix the Lurk Hawk, it’s time to build my very special KH500. Blueprinted, modern squish, extra ports for reliability purposes, plus a bit more power, special chambers, proper ignition to tune each cylinder separately, reed valve conversion, a little different gearing, bunch more frame bracing, sorted swing arm etc etc. Easy peasy. Time for me to rock a road stroker again after all these years. Fuel economy be damned. #lurkshop #KH500 #kawasaki #tripletrouble #LIC #NYC

Old spot at north 10th. It’s been a long ride and learned a lot about who real friends are. Couldn’t have done any of this without them. The rest of the pants people can suca. You only need three bad mofugas namean. When things were real cold or low, one of you ass’s would bring a beer and a sandwich and life was complete. Can’t thank you enough. Beat the trusties with hard work kids. Not everyone’s got the moolah parents or spouse. Jaded forever. KUYASHII. #lurkshop #LIC #NYC

Hoping on a 750 with set up suspension, even if the spring is a little light for me (45 pounds off💁‍♂️), reminds me how much better superbikes were as 750/4 vs 1000/2. You’ll get to see it in a weirder form this year in super sport. 959 ducks vs big triples vs unlimited 600s. Don’t worry, I’ll wait here. Watch how much better that racing will be. I’d rather every formula go back to the real world, instead of boasting about 300 million electronically controlled horsepower. Traction control can’t save you from a high side. There’s no electronics on your front tire. ABS can send you into the wall, I rip that s**t out. Mechanical grip, motor rideability, cables to butterflies. This is what makes you confident, no sn**ch unless, smoothed out with an ECU. The actual fuel atomizing correctly. The correct amount burning on decell. A clutch that releases plates manually to reduce hop. Once you set up a machine properly, and most people on earth I’m finding do not know what that feels like, you can’t fathom riding like you once did. Bring back the 750’s. Bring back the big vtwins. Get rid of the electronics. Watch the real hero’s shine. #lurkshop #GSXR750 #suzuki #LIC #NYC

Little flash back to a FI SR400 I put together. Customer just wanted it to look Pinteresty and have a huge rear tire. We made it work. 17’s, 160 rear, 120 front, braced the swing arm to handle all the new found grip, brakes up front to get her stopped. He wanted it silver with no decals so we did that. But of a loop, a world of wiring to hide the modern SR harness, a whole bunch of machining and time on the dyno to get her smooth. With all that added rolling resistance, even with a quicker trail, would have been nice to put more power down on this sucker but c’est la vie. Learnt a lot of how to deal with penny pinching customers on this one. #lurkshop #SR400 #FI #yamaha #brembo #LIC #NYC

Do love me some proper Nitron goodness. Lots of suspension to set up when I get back and I can’t wait. One of my favorite things is to get bikes set up better and go harder than they ever could out the factory door. Especially when they are getting close to 40 years old. One special slab slide GSXR coming up. #lurkshop #GSXR750 #suzuki #slabbie #LIC #NYC

It’s been since 2014 and a lot of saying soon. Dropped every dollar into the shop and if another track day momo tells me “hey bro just race what’s stopping you brah, pants pants bro bro,” slap slap. It’s been a long road and not everyone’s got mommy daddy money whilst trying to hide it or a charity they pawn and pocket. So quite chirpy to say I’m finally going to race this sucker this year. Now to find which endurance series I can shove this thing into, and more importantly what I can do to it. I love racing, but it’s so much better racing with all my friends.

He never had money, all his friends died, he robbed Peter to pay Paul, paid peter back and asked for sponsorship. He was screwed out of his team and had to watch them win in his car. So then he made a new team and destroyed the world. He gave us Adrian Newey, Pat Head, a phalanx of champions. He should have died in 1986, but carried on to his best years in a wheel chair. Most if not all who venture into F1 are royalty or wanna be money royalty. It’s impossible, even today, to comprehend getting a foot in the door as a mere mortal. But the son of a special needs teacher kicked it in. Frank Williams. A real mechanic. God speed sir. #realheros

New disks for Mr David’s very put together SV. Lot over the years. G3S shock, I built his front suspension for him proper after swapping the front end. Some wiring trickery to delete the stock gauge, Brembo calipers, sticky tires, uprated fuel pump, new full system, some cam timing fun, some dyno time and a lick of paint. Rippin.

Rise Lazarus. Clean, partially restored XS650, motors been put together and found all the usual foibles. Incorrect valve clearance from another year model. Incorrect float height from another year model. A pound of junk in the carbs from too much tank stabil. Stock charging system is garbage and went in the trash, new PMA system sorts that. Proper Boyer ignition that actually works and proper timing with all the actual tools. None of this finding TDC with a straw junk. Bit of tuning, a bunch of wiring, a tank of a gas and boy she rips. Stocker with all the right upgrades. No coffee coffee here kids. Off you go. #lurkshop #XS650 #yamaha #doitright #LIC #NYC

Major service for one of the most sorted XSR900’s out there. Valves and the lot. She’s dialed with Nitron up the rear with the hydraulic preload adjuster, and Nitron cartridges up front to fox arguably the worst stock suspension on a modern motorcycle. Complete with stick Q3’s, she’s an absolute dream this thing. Triple trouble and I just want one now. #lurkshop #XSR900 #nitron #yamaha #akrapovic #LIC #NYC @nitronusa

You made it on my box Ross, this is a big moment for you. Savor it.
You guys ever hunt down bikes for a "client"? I'm starting to casually look for a Bimota.
