Making Motorcycles From Junk Parts Since 2006

Thank you for visiting the blog that represents Unholy Motorsports. We are a team of two with a shop in the Baltimore neighborhood of Hampden. We previously occupied a space in Highlandtown, once home to Thompson Metalcraft. We've been making bikes from junk parts since 2006, and continue to work on personal projects and on customer bikes by appointment.

Screen Print Firsts

Here's our first 'experiment' run with my first screen. Working on the shop rag screen this week. Look for shirts, rags, and sticker/ button packs for buyin' sometime in August.

CB Project progress

Finally ready to piece this beast back together. It lost it's stock ass end and is now a rigid with 2 1/2" ground clearance. Should be a good little Harm City hopper.

Want some?

I'll be at the shop pissing around Monday and Tuesday, hopefully making REAL progress on the CB project- and calling Merlin every 2 minutes. Stop by and say hi, grab a beer, tease me about my new found sobriety.

Speaking of which, Merlin walked me through a carb rebuild (bank of 4 Mikunis, which I have never tackled before). Dropped them off the other day in this bag, complete with the new bidness card and pin.

The Passing Along of a Very Cool Tank

I've been in love with this tank since I saw it on Yaniv Evan's bike in the first Two Wheel Terrors DVD from a few years ago. Fast forward to yesterday, when I discovered it mounted on another bike (credit to Throttle ). And as it turns out, this was a Vanilla Gorilla original from Jesse James before it was on Yaniv's ride. Definitely cool when things are passed around and down to get a shot at a new life on a new bike.

The newest incarnation...

Screen attempt #2

More light, more exposure. And a better set screen. Turns out this requires patience. If all goes well we will have shirts and shop rags soon.

Finishing up a carb rebuild. Where'd that idle mixture screw go?

Back in the 21211

Just in time for the rain. Snapped a few shots of this '50 CB160 on my last day in town. So many great bikes on the streets of SF.

Tomorrow at Olivia's *Come See Screws Play the Bagpipes*

Tomorrow (Saturday) the Don't Panic Foundation is having a 'bike week' fundraiser at Olivia's, on Route 97 in Gettysburg. From 12-5 there will be drinks specials, Don't Panic merch for sale, and performances by the Montgomery County Firefighters Pipes and Drums. Get on your 2 wheeled machines, come have some beer and support a good cause!

Can't Find This On The East Coast

Similar to Dickies and Red Cap but West Coast exclusive and I think cooler. I practically live in workwear, and will be scoring some of this on the way out of SF.

True Vintage Lids

Curiosity Shoppe, Valencia Street, San Fran. Featuring rad old lids and art by Nathan Lynch.

San Fran City Garages

Walking for several hours around the Mission District; saw plenty of small garages chock full of sweetness...

San Fran CB-Four Nirvana

Spent the day walking around San Fran yesterday. It's amazing how many Honda CB-fours there are, most either in fine shape or cafe'd out.

First Thursdays at Peter's Inn

The first Thursday of every month marks something better felt than described at Peter's Inn in Fells Point. Owners Bud and Karin, Barkeep Mr. Holden and Server Mr. Nas allow a bunch of 2-wheeled maniacs to park out front and drink lots of alcohol. For me it was in the form of whiskey. Today I say ouch. What made last night so special (aside from the PERFECT weather) was the premier of Merlin's Frankenbike to the show. Sweet.

On the way

The show


My K&N filter mouths have finally been stretched past their mechanical limits. Lost the right pod on a long ride yesterday. The chain chatter coming from the chrome butt of the filter grinding against chain was the reveal. So for the rest of the ride, I tucked it in like a Manpon and my right side carb ran WIDE OPEN, and without issue. Thankful.
