Leaving the rules

Honda CG125

Maxwell Paternoster of Corpses from hell created in cooperation this great creative motorcycle art. They took this little Honda CG 125, a robust small single OHV cylinder with 11 PS build from the seventies to eighties for the market in developing countries.
They painted all parts like a white canvas and each designer could painted what they wanted. The result is a little piece of street art.

The Honda CG125 engine

The lightweight, short-pushrod OHV engine features a gear-driven, single camshaft structure for both intake and exhaust. The shaft is located where one would find the cam-chain housing in a more conventional OHC engine.

Guano Apes are back

Nice to see that to become older also could be to become nicer. Heard this new song at the first time was a little bit disappointed, but if you would hear it for a second time and maybe one time on the radio - I bet you pump up the volume.

The unkown family

German motor company DKW, established 194 in Chemnitz and 1906 moved to Zschopau, grew up in the first 40 years of the last century to the biggest motorcycle company of the world. The brandname DKW origin "DampfKraftWagen" was all over this years a pseudonym for marketing messages like "Das Kleine Wunder" or "Des Knaben Wunsch" and well known since 1921 for motorcycles and since 1927 for cars. In 1939 DKW built the model RT with 125cc Two-Stroke engine and typical rigid frame. This bike became the most built and copied german motorcycle until 1965 by different companies in east and west. Since WWII the DKW RT 125 became one of the most copied motorcycle example for companies like Harley-Davidson, BSA, Moskva or Yamaha.

Harley built their Hummer from 1948 until 1966, a real nice little bike, rigid and with a little Sportster tank. BSA had their Bantam from 1948 to 1953 and for Yamaha was the RT 125 1956 a blueprint model for their first motorcycle YA-1. MZ and IFA build their versions. And the new MZ tried it again few years ago with this famous name. Read more here (Deutsch)...
