The first weekend in April greeted vintage racers and spectators alike to clear blue skies and unusually warm sunny weather for the first Classic Sports Racing Group (CSRG) event, the David Love Memorial, of the 2022 season.

Celebrating the life of CSRG’s Co-founder, David Love, the two-day vintage race event took place the weekend of April 2-3, with an optional practice on April 1st, at Sonoma Raceway. This year kicks off CSRG’s 55th year of vintage racing (check out the previous year’s behind-the-scenes).

Over 175 drivers made for a strong turnout to the no sound limit event as nine different race groups navigated the 12 turn, 2.52 mile hilly road course located in the hills of Sonoma Raceway. A wide variety of racecars ranging from the early 1950’s to Formula and Production Sports cars, as well as Can Am and IMSA racecars showed up to attack the track.

While spectators had free entry, crowds were light over the weekend possibly due to another event running simultaneously at Laguna Seca.

Sunday’s winners for each race group are as follows:

Group 1 – Kurt DelbeneGroup 2 – Edward LamantiaGroup 3 – Scott BrownGroup 4 – Dave HaganGroup 5 – Locke De BrettevilleGroup 6 – Oliver RamlethGroup 7 – Edd OzardGroup 8 – N/AGroup 9 –  Troy Ermish

Going Once, Going Twice: The best bikes from the Bonhams February sale

bmw rs 500 bonhams february sale 2024 745x497 1 jpg

Ex-Hans-Otto Butenuth BMW RS 500 at the Bonhams February sale
The Bonhams February sale is about to wrap up, so we’re taking a break from our regular scheduled programming to pick our favorite motorcycles from the auction. From an Ariel Square Four and a 1989 Kawasaki ZX-10, to Hans-Otto Butenuth’s BMW 500 Rennsport [above], here are seven classic motorcycles that we’d love to park in the Bike EXIF garage.

1907 Quadrant at the Bonhams February auction
1907 Quadrant In the early 1880s, two blokes by the names of Walter and William Lloyd patented a pedal tricycle steering mechanism, which they (very confusingly) called the ‘Quadrant.’ Anyway, Quadrant went on to make bicycles, tricycles, and motorcycles, and, by 1901, had emerged as one of Britain’s earliest motorcycle manufacturers.

This 453 cc Quadrant was originally built in Coventry and was meticulously restored by a previous owner. It showcases its history through hand-written notes, technical drawings, old registrations, marque-related literature, and an SMCC Pioneer Certificate.

Celebrating the best of performance and style at the upcoming 2024 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction, where it is selling with No Reserve, is the “Speedvette,” a 1973 Chevrolet Corvette that marries classic aesthetics with modern muscle.

This custom beauty underwent a no-expense-spared rotisserie restoration completed in March 2023, and comes alive under the hood with a robust GM Performance 6.2-liter LS3 engine, generating 525 horsepower. Paired with a 4L70E 4-speed automatic transmission, it is sure to deliver a straightforward American muscle experience.

This Speedvette rolls on Schott Turbine wheels wrapped in Diamond Back Classic red line tires and boasts a Pro-Touring treatment. Its Coffman Corvette custom chassis incorporates C6/C7 components, RideTech coilovers and a power rack & pinion steering system. Stopping power is delivered by C7 calipers gripping slotted rotors, assisted by an E-Stopp electric brake.

The exterior’s subtle modifications include 2-inch rear fender flares and a smoothed decklid with a waterfall effect. The Torch Red exterior and black Haartz Stayfast convertible top add a classic touch. Inside is a handcrafted bespoke cabin with black leather and red stitching.

Road tested: TFX Suspension Xtreme adjustable rear shocks

tfx suspension review 745x497 1 jpg

TFX Suspension review
I got lucky when I bought my 2012-model Triumph Bonneville SE last year. A single-owner bike with less than 1,500 miles on the dial, it had spent most of its life trickle-charging in a garage. What’s more, the previous owner had thrown a handful of tasteful factory accessories at it (and a few that were less well-judged).

There was one key ingredient missing though; good suspension. Most modern classics roll out of the factory with suspension components that are adequate at best, but the older air-cooled Bonneville’s setup is downright poor. Small LED turn signals and a fancy sprocket cover might make your bike look prettier, but new shocks—like the fully adjustable TFX Suspension Xtreme units now gracing the tail end of my Triumph—will make it ride better.

TFX Suspension Xtreme rear shocks review

Based in The Netherlands, TFX Suspension is run by a small and passionate team, led by founders Hans-Dieter Fischer and Alex Meijs. The two of them formed TFX fourteen years ago when the suspension company that they were working for folded. Now they produce components on their terms, with the sort of hands-on approach that’s often missing from larger companies.

Their catalog includes various mono- and twin-shock items, suitable for a wide range of on- and off-road applications, plus a handful of front suspension upgrades. (We’ve seen their parts on custom bikes from Bottpower, Powerbrick, CNCPT Moto, and more.) They sent me a set of their Xtreme shocks to test out on my Triumph Bonneville; fully-adjustable units that retail for €1,399 [$1516].
