VVMC 7th Annual Annual Rally September 13, 2014

This is one of the BEST shows-rides and events on Californian Calendar, and I for one will be attending. There are a Ton of things to see and do and the chance to win a very cool and well built Street tracker style CB350 HONDA.

I have been to quite a few of these shows, they are top notch and on a few occasions I have been asked to be a judge at the shows and boy are there some super motorcycles there.

Great people, no attitude,  just enjoy all the cool sights and sounds of the show!


If you have not ever attended this show, it is worth a look, there is a ride too that’s so cool as many groups come together and take the ride, the event is a great time to meet up with like minded people and of course there’s a charity and also as above a give away motorcycle, how cool is that?

Comments from builder Scott DiLalla

The journey of taking on the build of this year’s rally bike started only a few months ago in May. I knew from VVMC member, Shannon Sweeney’s experience of taking on last year’s build wouldn’t be a small feat with such little time. Thanks to Shannon, he pulled a 1973 run down CB350 from his shop, had a few brothers tear it down and transport it all to my garage where the build commenced not long after.

Right away I envisioned this bike as a “brat style” ride with a few touches of influential bits. I wanted this bike low, mean and fast. The first thing was to shorten the rear and add a loop with a slight upward bend, de-tab anything that was not needed and build a seat pan along the new clean lines of the frame.

2014-raffle-bike-progress-detabbingAfter a trip to M&K Metal I had some quarter inch round bar and eighteen-gauge sheet metal to begin the fabrication process. The construction of this seat was influenced by Dustin Kott’s seats with the welded in bolts that will fasten with wing nuts directly underneath for easy and fast removal. In this same area Bob Edwards from Glamrock Cycles will incorporate his compact battery and electronics so the middle of the bike can remain open and airy.

In addition to this I installed a new and updated cam chain tensioner (slider type) to replace the old crappy plastic roller version. Also, new valves, piston, rings, resurfaced head and all new gaskets were installed.

Thanks to cb350 guru Chad Williams’ recommendations there will be some neat little things on this bike that will help it’s performance. I’m going with a 520 chain to lighten the drive train up a little and geared it so it not only has some power around town but also will have some pep in the top end.

Thanks to my VVMC brothers who have been supportive and helpful throughout this process. Please check out the photos and update videos while purchasing a handful of raffle tickets. Good Luck.
