Mason & Tyler will discuss the essentials of a rider's tool roll, how to handle the most common service issues (chain, sprockets, tires, fluids, and electrical shorts), where to find information and parts for more complicated repairs, and common mistakes made by beginner mechanics. If you have any specific questions relating to your bike, we'll also have plenty of Q&A time to talk through diagnosis and repair.

BEHOLD! A custom 1989 VTR 250 Interceptor: fully prepped for the season and ready for a new rider. This is the thoughtful person’s 250 - a punchy v twin with a 14000 rpm red line and a 6 speed transmission capable of highway riding even with my 6’3 200+ pound frame.
It’s also lighter than the cbr250 and ninja 250, while making more power and handling better. I’ve ridden all 3 and while they are great bikes and in many respects more refined (idiot lights, ABS, a speedometer) this bike’s combination of sound, riding position, power delivery and nimbleness cause instant giggling in all who ride it.
The crusty patina and sticker bomb tank aren’t for everyone, but if you don’t like the power ranger/ricer/newb aesthetics of most new small displacement bikes, and don’t want to deal with setting points or other vintage headaches, this is a good option. I built it as a fun 2nd bike for the city and close in twisties, but I’m downsizing my fleet and taking offers. The bike is currently in the showroom at DUNN LEWIS, 2007 Fenwick Street NE in Ivy City for viewing during shop hours.
Work includes fresh oil and brake fluid, carb rebuild and rejet, drilled/deresteicted airbox, open exhaust (loud but not totally ear splitting thanks to the collector/resonator box under the bike), new tires still with nipples and chicken strips, upgraded brake master cylinder and Goodrich stainless brake line, LED headlight and tail, clip on bars, new from Japan CDI ignition box ($$), custom minimal wiring, petcock, custom lithium battery pack, minor tail chop/detabbing and much more I’m forgetting to list.
I’ve owned the bike for a number of years in different incarnations, have ridden it all over DC, even did my first track day at summit point on it a few years back. It’s not going to “outrun a 600 in the corners” or whatever nonsense people like to spout about little bikes, but it is good fun and you won’t get totally dusted by your friends on it if you get good at throwing it around. You can also run around the city wide open all the time.
For those who don’t know the model, it was only imported to the US for 3 years, but it had a much longer run in Australia and Japan where it’s regarded as a great little sport bike. Affectionately known as the “chickenhawk” or ”babyceptor” after its big brothers from Honda (gt650 Hawk, Vtr1000 Superhawk, VFR500, VFR700, and VFR750 Interceptors) it came to the states in super ugly 80’s colors and never sold very well.
The mods I’ve done were intended to de-Barbie the bike and make it a bit easier to live with as a daily rider. The rust prone and basically unobtainable stock tank was replaced with a Cbr600 f2/f3 unit, one of the most common and easy to find tanks on eBay, the plastics are gone, and lots of other junk was stripped and serviced.
The riding position is pretty aggressive - high seat angle and low bars - but as a result it handles a corner extremely well. It also doesn’t have a horn or a speedo, though they could be rigged up if you need to pass inspection, but in the DC area you either don’t need inspection or can tag historic to avoid it in MD and VA. A few other little things to be aware of that I can explain to a serious buyer.

"If you feel like Steve McQueen on your bike, you'll love Breadsoda."
- Ducati Danny
We love Breadsoda. They've been our "local" since opening waaaay back in 2008 [way back when Street Spirit Cycles was turning wrenches in BreadSoda's Moto-cave]. The beers are cold, the games are fun, the deli is legit, but most importantly - the staff are amazing humans.
Join us, May 21st, to celebrate 10 years of Glover Park's, heck Washington DC's, most laidback & real Motorcycle bar.
There will be music by Loud Boyz, grilling on the patio, drink specials, and tons of PBR.
As is tradition, DUNN LEWIS will be hosting a lil'group ride [Weather dependent - check this space day of for updates].
Ride Details ::
Monday, May 21st
MEET : 7pm Hains Point, East Potomac Park
KSU : 7.30pm
Breadsoda : 8.30pm [ish]
2233 Wisconsin Ave. NW DC

Intro to Motorcycles
Sunday, May 20th 2018, 6:00PM
Weekend session!!
This is a free class for all prospective or new riders, commuters, adventurers, and potential passengers. All are welcome to attend. If you have a friend who furtively glances at your motorcycle in that special way, forward this invitation or bring them on down.
We'll cover : Types of bikes, Insurance, Safety Training, Certification, Gear, Helmets, Local Clubs, Rides, & Adventures!
This is not a training course and doesn't involve riding : i.e. the perfect low pressure environment to ask every question you've ever had about two wheel life.
Share this post with any and all friends you think should -finally- be on that bike, scooter, moped, or dirt bike they're always talking about!
Can't make it to this event? No worries! We'll be hosting Intro to Motorcycles (and Maintenance) on a regular basis all summer.
Find details to get started on your own from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation & American Motorcyclist Association!

FRIDAY, APRIL 27th, 7pm
$30
Twin Shadow arrives in DC to release his new album Caer. Catch him at U Street Music Hall this Friday w/Yuno!
Forget [2010], Confess [2012], and Eclipse [2015] have been in pretty heavy rotation at the shop since we've opened. We're big fans.
Dark-wave + synth + lyrical content + that voice = epic jams. Perfect music for wrenching or riding.
We'll be there and are hope you will be too!
