In between the velvet lines, there's a truth as hard as steal.

Last week I managed to hobble around in my shed long enough to make a ' hand operated clutch lever ' so that I can drive my Van. 
Today I mostly been making a walking stick, as that will be my next mode of transport after my crutches. 
It's supposed to be a Femur ( note the t100 exhaust valves) the fact that I feel the need to explain what it looks like means that I didn't do a great job . But the welds are nice and it does look very steampunk. And a damn site cooler than what they give you in hospital.
Soon I'm gunna be able to start on my Swedish Sportster.

Getting my head strait.

Im selling my flat-tracker. 
It's a YZF 450 and it's bloody perfect for racing. 
I was always planning on selling this bike once I had built my Triumph. 
Since my accident I have been deciding weather I will be racing Flat-track again. 
If  a broken leg was only one week of pain then I would be back on the track tomorrow but it ain't it's 7 weeks of a massively fucked up life so far , cancelled ride into Italy, a chopper that hasn't been built , clients that could go elsewhere and scratching by because I've had to find other bods to do my work for me. 
It sucks big time. 
I can't afford this to happen again so I'm not flattracking again . 
I know that I could have done this slipping off a curb or tripping on some timber, but the chances of it happening whilst tanking into a corner, flat out , fighting for the same small piece of muddy , slippy track as 12 other bods is much more likely. 
Mrs Oily ( bless her she has never asked me to stop even though this broken leg has fucked around her life aswell) suggested that I could just pootlle around the outside , but I know me and I can't do that . 

I'm keeping the Trumpet and may race it in another guise one day .

NIBBELING ON SPONGECAKE.

Having a broken leg is BLOODY SHIT. That is the price to pay of racing on a slippy muddy surface on tyres that arnt very Knobbely. 
Week 5 now an I'm right pissed off. Sat in doors while every body else is outside playing. 
Well I was pissed off. I've just rememberd Jimmy Buffet and decided to take his advise. 
It may be "2.00 here but it's 5.o.Clock somewhere. "
I'm also "nibbling on sponge cake" but insted of watching the day bake I'm watching GP Speedway. 
Fuck it . It ain't like I'm gunna be driving anywhere.?

Just very cool stuff.

This is my friend Dan his is about to build a Sweedish chop ( it won't be his first) you can be assured it will be a genuine Sweedish chop because he is Sweedish. 

A bloody cool and probebly bloody noisy Camper van. 
I'm sure this drag bike is in the national bike museum in Birmingham.

When drag transmisions go it causes quite a problem

Nitros bong

Dave from "happygoingnowhere blog" sat down an had a chat whilst I was chugging on the Nitros. 

He took some great photos that he sent me of me and (bellow) and Milo on his 45.
He sent me others but I didn't want to stick them all on my blog as I'm sure he'll do that himself.

Bloody great book

It's finally here. My book. 
It it available NOW to download from Amazon for your phone or Kindle. It's not available in paper form. 
I wrote this a while ago and tryed to get it published but at 26000 words it wasn't deemed sellable I needed to write twice as much.Problem is that I felt the story which is true worked as it was and padding it out just to make it longer would just ruin the flow. 
I wrote this book just because the adventure we had was great, I also wanted my kids and there kids to have something to show that I wasn't always a boring old duffer. 
Writing this was a challenge for a dislexick, illiterate like myself. But like many things I've done in my life did it just to see if I could.

Please get yourself a copy, hopefully you'll like it then you can give it a lovely review. 

I need to thank Rich and Jimbo for bring mates and helping this life happen and also Mrs Oily for naggin me to publish it, and her and Ben for helping me edit it.
