Tesla & the Maryland Meetup

It’s every journalists (or wannabe journalist, if you rather) dream to get to travel and photograph their favorite things… in this case the lovely Sasha of CafeRacerXXX sent me on a mission to photograph Tesla, a Triumph build by my friend Jeff Yarrington of Saint Motor Company in Maryland. With a little help of Kevin Dunworth of Loaded Gun Customs, Sasha organized a great event. 

CafeRacerXXX organized a MotoLady meetup, a video was planned, and days were set aside for a photoshoot of the bike. 

Two years ago I posted Jeff Yarrington’s green cafe Ural Racer custom build. Since then he’s become one of my best friends!
Motorcycles bring people together.
Look out for my photos of his bike Tesla in the next couple days!

East Coast Invasion Commencing

In less than a week I’ll be traveling to Maryland for a very exciting project with Cafe Racer XXX and Saint Motor Company. You may recall Saint being mentioned both in the Monster Project (Phase 9: 748 Front End on 750 Monster, Phase 8: Fixing the Tank) and the very popular green cafe racer Ural

The Monster Project: Phase 8

Last I posted, I was flimflamming about what kind of logo to put on the tank of the bike. The paint scheme was already all planned (thank you all for the suggestions, though) and I just needed to top it off with the right version of the Ducati logo for the mood of the bike. 

At this point, I can finally show you guys something definitive… so you can see where I’m going with this whole project. (Full views and videos after the cut.)

I’m not sure if I’ve stated this or not, but I’m going for a retro stylized mean lookin’ moto. Put these in your brain and shake ‘em around: Classy, ivory, racing, glitter. What do you get? The best paint scheme ever. 

Night time is the right time… to work. Jeff from Saint Motor Company in his work shop. This is the stuff my dreams are made of.

Lowside Magazine featured Saint Motor Bikes BSA 500ss cafe custom, and I love the photos!
Jeff Yarrington, the owner and main man of Saint, is an extremely talented, helpful, and cool guy. So it’s GREAT to see his work displayed correctly! (www.saintmotorcompany.com)

Saint Motor Bikes does it again- this time he turns a 1972 Yamaha XS 650 into a classy little cafe bike with a removable tail cone for the option to seat two. How ingenious.
From Jeff Yarrington, the talented owner of Saint Motor Company-

"[My] favorite part is that I pull off the exhaust & muffler under the seat (sectioned & made frame taller in rear), & the Battery being hidden under gas Tank, all leaving the rear section empty, without sacrifice of amenities."

"Saving Grace" custom by the Saint Motor Company
Jeff (of Saint Motor Co) wrote me a nice note after I posted his Green Ural Racer, and upon further investigation of his customs… I found this beauty. I love the military feel, and the simple paint scheme.
