Does anyone know Tony Foale???

I have stumbled over these pictures of a great racing CR750 with mono shock – super cool! And it looks old, innovative back then!?

But I don’t know the background to these pictures? If any of you know more about Tony Foale Racing Developments please drop me an e-mail on

With regards, your editor.

BBB’s Reliability Report for TAS Classic Motorsports = C+

After having all kinds of trouble with TAS Classic Motorsports, I have reported their lack of professionalism to The Better Business Bureau. And so did others it seems?

Based on other cases the BBB gives TAS Classic Motorsports a reliability rate of C+ (On a scale from A+ to F). Not good!!!

Reasons for this rating include:

  • BBB does not have sufficient information to determine how long this business has been operating.
  • BBB does not have sufficient background information on this business.

On top of this BBB have reports on other cases concerning:

1) Non-delivery of products

2) Failure to honour promised refunds, exchanges, or credit

From Last Weeks Mark-Up Session

The old lady is getting there…

This picture was taken during last weeks mark-up session. I am waiting for parts, and will soon start fitting the tank & seat, and get them into some cool paint. Deadline is 1. May and even though it starts to look like a bike there is still a long way to go… So I just have to push!

Follow the progress right here on Cling on for dear life.

With regards, your editor.

In the 1970s bikes where stunning...

... and people were funny looking!

If You Don’t Like CB750 Motorcycles... could always turn it into a weird looking Unisport Cabin Scooter.

The idea was that you could take your Honda CB450-750, and remove the front forks, and attach the rest of the motorcycle to the Unisport 2-person tandem tub, 2 wheel front.

Steering was done by steering wheel, and buttons on the steering wheel controlled 2 electric motors, on the tilting front suspension. In other words, you could make the 3-wheeled vehicle lean into turns.

The Unicar Corp was founded in the early 70s and lasted 2-3 years - impressive! As the legend goes, the body was designed by Bruce Meyers, the creator of the classic Meyer's Manx dune buggy, but I personally have no verification of this – it could be pure fiction?

Find more info on the Unisport here:

Front fork work – Ongoing...

The front forks are now completely disassembled, and the lower legs are sent for buffing and powder coating.

New Hagon Progressive Springs will be ordered very soon. And to match the front end the rear will be fitted with Hagon 2810 adjustable shocks for a completely tuneable setup.

And do I need Race Tech Gold Valve Emulators and do a comprehensive overkill of it all?!? Only time will tell...

We R Winning

First time I saw We R Winning’s first trailer it was clear that I could completely relate to these guys.

We R Winning put it this way:


Taking risks is important. Without risk life drags on into a mindless web of routines where the vitality of hope is slowly sucked from our memory. It's not long before we are deceived into settling for less of a life than what is actually achievable. I'm always grateful to hear a tale of ordinary people freeing themselves from these illusions. We should all make an effort to have a story like this someday. We R Winning are proud to present an inspiring film about a group of friends overcoming the uncertainties that keeps people from doing what they love”.


If this is something for you maybe We R Winning’s blog is worth visiting

You have my respect! And right now I fell like You, Me, and all of you bike builders & riders, We R Winning...
