Pick-n-Mix Treat: A W650 hardtail bobber from South Africa

The Kawasaki W650 has been customized in myriad ways, but we seldom see it as a pure engine donor for another project. And why not? Kawasaki’s classically-style parallel twin is arguably one of the most attractive motors from the past couple of decades. This delightful hardtail bobber uses the engine, gearbox, carbs and the basic electrics from a 1999-model W650. But every other part has come from somewhere else, or been made from scratch. A tasteful combo by owner and builder, Marnitz Venter...

The Best ’70s Crime Films You’ve Never Seen

(Welcome to The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen, a series that takes a look at slightly more obscure, under-the-radar, or simply under-appreciated movies. This week, we head back nearly half a century for some great crime films of the 1970s!) Some may try to argue otherwise, but most reasonable film lovers with taste will agree that the best decade for movies was the 1970s. There are obviously fantastic feature films from every year since 1906 – the year the very first feature was produced – but ...

Earthly Delight: A minimalist Honda NX650 from Slovakia

There was a time when the Honda NX650 Dominator was an uncommon, yet surprisingly sensible, donor for a custom project. But Dominators have become increasingly popular as donor bikes lately—which makes total sense, given how reliable and versatile they are. HB-Custom showed us one winning formula for the utilitarian NX650 just last week. Now it’s the turn of the guys behind Earth Motorcycles, who have thrown their hats into the ring with this lithe street scrambler. Stripped down to the basic...

The Best Motorcycles of the 1970s

While every decade has its icons, the 1970s have so many good models to choose from. It was a time when the Japanese were really stamping their authority over the scene, flexing muscles and cylinders with each other, and driving once-mighty international brands into obscurity. Despite the changing landscape, the 70s created some of the most exciting and innovative motorcycles of all time. The 70s was such a good decade for motorcycles that we’re currently in the middle of a revival. Think about ...

How NASCAR's banked turns help cars go faster

Many NASCAR tracks use banked turns that are sloped to keep race cars tilted inwards. These banks are both safer and faster than flat roads. The race cars, which can reach speeds faster than 200 mph at NASCAR's fastest tracks, would fling outwards and off the track if not for the banked turns.Watch the video above for a deeper dive into the physics of NASCAR's banked turns.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Porsche And Penske Team Up For IMSA And WEC Effort

Photo: Michelin Racing USA Team Penske has been kicking butt in racing for decades, and for a lot of that time the team has been powered by Porsche. Way back in the 1960s Roger Penske himself was racing various four-cam Porsche prototype sports racing roadsters. By the 1970s, Penske and hired driver Mark Donohue were a global force, and their Porsche 917/30 became known as an all-conquering machine in the Can Am series.
