    2021 Fuel Cleveland

    2021 Fuel Cleveland
    The Fuel Cleveland show mixes some of the best custom and vintage motorcycles with different facets of moto-centric art and photography. The event often changes locations each year giving patrons a whole new experience each time and the 2021 show found its home in a very great location that was the best flow the show has had to date. While local stunt riders took to the streets below keeping everyone's blood pumping, this year's massive indoor vendor village and art exhibits were a great way to get excited for the main floor of motorcycles galore waiting in the next room. While the show always takes a very all inclusive approach this years curation of bikes was a very impressive mix. We have been proud to sponsor the event and also showcase our own motorcycles year after year at Fuel. We spoke with Mikey "Revolt" Arnold of Lowbrow Customs, the organizers of the event to get some info on what people can expect from the upcoming 2022 show.

    Psychobilly Honda-Davidson

    Psychobilly Honda-Davidson
    There are many motorcycles that exist only in stories and legends that cruise the highways for years evading the public eye but exist as one of a kind bikes that survive simply because they are just too wild to die. These kinds of "one off" survivors are usually reserved for custom choppers but what about a custom hybrid Harley Honda full dresser? A Honda Davidson or quite possibly a "Harlonda?" Well, we met a gentleman,  Paul Atkins,  one year at AMA vintage days who owns not only one, but three of these incredible machines and he brought his  1966 Harley Davidson with an SOHC CB750 motor powering it to our Old Bike Barn crossroads bike show and the rest is history and an interesting one at that. We sat down with Paul this year to pick his brain about the origins of his blue beauty which he affectionately refers to as "Psychobilly" and also get some info on the other 2 of these wild hybrid machines he has chosen to own over the years.

The illustrious Panhead was born.

    From Marketing Stunt to Legend: The Baja 1000

    From Marketing Stunt to Legend: The Baja 1000
    The impetus of the Baja 1000 came from none other than Honda American. 

    In the early 1960s, motorcycle riding and specifically dirt bike riding were seeing a massive surge in popularity. Honda American was at the forefront of this movement and was doing everything they could to convince riders that their bikes were not only the most capable but also the most reliable. Anyone who knows motorcycles today knows that this is what Honda bikes are really known for, and this branding started early on. 

    To prove the reliability of their brand new CL72 Scrambler, brand geniuses Jack McCormick and Walt Fulton of Honda American wanted to push the scrambler on a long-distance run across terrain that included everything from rocks and sand to mountain passes and dried out washes. An amalgamation of what dirt bike riders would encounter on their own riding days. Northwest Mexico would be the perfect environment to test out the overall durability of Honda's plucky CL72 Scrambler.

    The Honda CB750CR Winning Daytona 200

    The Honda CB750CR Winning Daytona 200
    The year was 1970. 
    Motorcycle culture was exploding all over the country, the muscle car era was in full swing, and American’s were more interested in racing than ever before. Intrepid rider Dick Mann, and the reluctantly constructed, factory-backed Honda team stood on the precipice of racing glory, but a tough 200 miles stood between the team and the big “W” that would legitimize Honda as a force to be reckoned with in the world of motorcycle road racing.
