Carberry V-Twin in Production?

Best of the Web, Random Notes

Paul Carberry from Australia has been working on a 1000cc Royal Enfield based V-Twin for a long time. Those who have ridden his test bikes have all given it good reviews. I got a recent e-mail announcing that they are now in production and soon will be available to the public. Not for the faint of wallet, but very cool all the same.  Check it out here

UPDATE: We found great photographic confirmation posted earlier on the SF Universe blog. The bike is a modified Hollywood prop bike and appears without distinctive markings, but the classic headlamp, big single, gearbox, fenders, and tail light give it away.

Scooter Bob reviews the UCE

Random Notes

Greg Stewart known to most as “Scooter Bob” has joined our staff. He was one of our very good dealers and is known as perhaps the foremost expert on Chian Jiang motorcycles in the country.

We have the opportunity to have one of the new Unit Construction G-5 models reviewed in another national magazine. The problem is that we have two beat up test mules and one brand new fresh from the factory show unit. Normally it would be easy to just put in a new battery some oil and ship the bike, but it would be foolish to send a bike to a prestigious magazine untested. Of course it has been about 100 degrees below zero and the streets are full of ice up here. Since ScooterBob is the “new guy” it was only fitting to ask him to take on this challenge. To my surprise and delight he took on the challenge. Here is his first “ride report” on the new bike:

Did I mention that I’m nearly in love with the new UCE bike despite WANTING to find bad stuff on it? This isn’t good for the long-term storage issues at the ScooterBob Garage Facility! Hahaha!
