New Nubbie Mobile

On July 3rd work started on the assembly of the New Nubbie Mobile. A highly modified TY175 Yanaha. The Nubster had his frame ready for assembly and we had the wheels and TY250 forks finished.

Looks pretty good with the red and white paint scheme and new, shinny, sharp IRC tires. I especially like the Yamaha tuning fork tank graphics. Very nice Nub! The fenders are ready to install also....but Nub has to bring over the rubber grommets.
The engine is being treated to a complete rebuild along with an electronic ignition, crank mod(new and very beneficial mod), porting, head mod, Boyesens and more. We are even going to install an alloy WES exhaust. Can't wait to ride this one!

What's that Skatetruck? Make sure we get some of the latest B&J stickers on it.....on where? The skid pan! That way we'll be sure to see them often.....

Well, actually we can't wait to watch the Nubster! Bet there will be a few topics for the blog there!

    Again with these beautiful motorcycles. Destined to resulted in a 500% increase in bumps and bruises, as old Nubbie throws his body between the bike and the ground, every time it leans more than 5 degrees to the side. Ah, what a man will do for the sake of Art.

    Ah, hell Pap. We're all gonna' end up on the ground anyway!

    It is going to be a great looking bike though.

    I CAN"T WAIT---Stay way back from the ribbon, I could be dangerous.

    Yes...the ribbon barrier....
    Did you ever notice how some spectators seem to feel that the ribbon will protect them?
    I'm sorry but IT WONT!
    Or will it?

    I thought if the spectator is inside the ribbon during your ride , your allowed to use them for traction ! for the easy clean !!

    The New Nubbie Mobile looks like it could climb a tree. Out of curiosity, is this the bike that Barry Langford picked up in Madison, Alabama?
