"THE ONE" Motorcycle Show...
« on: February 08, 2015, 07:42:03 AM »
Anyone who is within travel distance to Portland, Or. there is a real nice Motorcycle Show happening on February 13,14,15, 2015.

I attended this show a few years ago & it was a good time. The show is much larger now & has a bit of everything from Rat-Bikes to high end Customs & Restorations. Admission is free I believe & worthy of your time if you like bikes. Don't forget your camera.

I hit the show today & cruised around. I saw a flat black FT Ascot parked outside. There was a custom turbocharged, inter-cooled VT500 built out of an '85 Shadow that was pretty cool. Various pictures of the bike can be seen here: http://instagram.com/strangecoastmoto/  I couldn't get a good picture of it due to the foot traffic. Here are a few of the bikes that interested me & I could get a shot at.

This is just a small sampling of what the show has to offer. There are all kinds of bikes represented in one form or another from stock restorations to wild customs, a Bonneville type of stream-liner & a few rat-bikes. It's not a bad show at all.

Looks like a really cool show J. I've had the chance to see one of those Z1T kawi's before and even got to throw a leg over it. What a scary bike.

Here's a pic of the turbo-charged VT500 & here's another link with more info: http://imgur.com/a/2JpRC
According to the builder, the bike is running 8 lbs. of boost & is fuel injected. They have calculated an approximate of 80 horsepower. I'd like to ride it on my favorite back road. ;D
