got a scoop for you mofos; the dime city four hundred. it’s the bike that will be profiled in season two of cafe racer tv, coming to your eyeballs and giving you pinkeye on the discovery hd channel in a few weeks.
the dime city four hundred has a completely modified franken-frame built with original elements and new chromoly sections, welded together in a secret manner which includes homeless children tears and bureaucrat *** sweat as it’s been scientifically proven by a major university in california that they go together better than pizza and beer and make welds so strong only hatred can break them.
the engine sports a big-bore kit. how big? gonna have to watch the show, aren’t you?
jason told me that “the bostrom brothers just tested it at talledega and said in short that it was ‘rad.'” i like that word. seems that the bros were so stoked they wouldn’t stop riding and kept taking turns, each running onto the infield to film the other using their camera/phone/government spy satellite tracking devices.
other bits include a one-off fiber seat, a ducati replica moto gp tank, a set of stock tarozzi clip-ons, and loaded gun rear sets.
because these guys know how to get the most power out of an engine and turn it into burning rubber, a four-into-one exhaust system was created for this machine.
the four hundred will be sporting the very first set of progressive 970 piggyback series gas shocks, with fully adjustable rear dampers. paired with a set of custom front inner fork springs it’s my guess – with the engine and power mods mated to such a slick suspension – the four hundred will handle like a crack w**** properly restrained to a bed so you can do whatever your wicked heart wants.
but wait, there’s more! the dime city crew is building the bike to current ahrma race standards. in herm and jason’s words, the four hundred is “a machine that shows our ability to craft a bike that can not only hang with the thoroughbreds at the race track, but take a blue ribbon with the show ponies.”
