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.

Sunday at UnholyMoto

How fitting, on the Sabbath, to work at an Unholy shop...

The mechagician...

And his understudy...

Mr. Keaton's new rear tyre...

Another visit to the jet set...

Narrow tube, narrow tyre...

Look up and see some shit...

Eye level standing at the bench...

It was a good day.

Got out for a bit today. . .

Even if it -WAS- only to and from a meeting. . . Such a great early fall day to be on two wheels.

Have a great Wednesday

Buco full-face re-lined UnholyMoto Style

Took on the project of re-lining this Buco helmet that I'm using as my commuter lid. Used bandanas with the UnholyMoto logo screened on them... Not my best work but the material's quite nice and colorful, eh?

Zero Chopper Spirit

Ordered this book online directly from Chopstick in Japan, and six days later it arrived. Hand signed for under 40 bones and all monies go to the continued relief effort in Japan.

Always fascinated by the Japanese language, especially in the written form.

T-100 Gets New Bars

These Faclon Enduro bars narrowed my bike's profile by 6 inches- making lane splitting a little easier. They also bring my riding posture slightly forward of neutral. Norman Hyde cable extensions for the clutch, brake and throttle. I used a Honda dirtbike clutch lever and bicycle bar tape for the grips. . .

I'm in the process of changing out the right side controls as well. Below is the bracket that holds the highbeam and horn switches on the left- it has been painted black and will hold the kill and start switch on the right side- this bracket has been fitted up under the tank.

Stay tuned/ sorry for the recent lack of posts

It's been crazy in my life lately- all good but crazy nonetheless. Plenty to post and share in the coming weeks, including a new shirt based on the FarOutFast logo. Stay tuned, and in the meantime, CTOP:CofC :

Shop Time

Made some great progress on Joshua Crown's CB the other day. Turned it into a 1-kicker through some tweaking of some things. Now to shore up the wiring. . .

Explaining how alcohol, tobacco and firearms fuel UnholyMoto. . .

Bro-ing it out. . .

Fun times!

Got a few of these bad boys laying around. 3" round vinyl goodness. The pic is of Merlin's Frankenbike- one of the bikes that was featured in The Art of Motorcycles show a few months back. $5 will get you one of these and this image on a shop rag. if you're interested.

Farewell C10, Farewell

Today I sold off the C10 to an Andy from Delaware. The photo below represents the last run it made for Unholy Moto- the pick up of a Chris' Honda Supersport that's been sitting for 10 years. That was this morning (Sunday). The truck was sold 20 minutes after the bike was dropped off at the shop. The C10 had taken second string to a Toyota with a 4 cylinder motor and 8-foot bed as shop truck. In the far off future I plan to buy a Chevy panel van of 60's vintage. Until then it's trailer time for the bikes I have to carry around (summer dirt track, etc) and the Toyota for official shop business. Miss the C10 already.

Tomorrow, The Art of Motorcycles Sunday, May 15, 405 E Oliver St, 1PM

We have been invited to show a few bikes in The Art of Motorcycles tomorrow, Sunday May 15 at 1PM. Come donate to a great cause- outfitting motorcycles with cots to make moto-ambulances for medical transport in Africa. This is a UNICEF initiative- the goal of the event is to raise enough money to get one of these bikes made ~12K. I've been at the shop frantically working to get bikes ready for this event. Here's one of the things that you'll see on the "street log" tomorrow.

Hope to see you there.
