The lover of life's not a sinner The ending is just a beginner The closer you get to the meaning The sooner you'll know that you're dreaming

Got my tank back from Dave the painter . Bloody lovely colour . Now it's with a lady that will spray some trippy designs over the top. 
I decided that since I normally have black bikes , well apart from my red Triumph oh and my bare ally Duke ( ooo look at me getting all colourful ) 
Anyway I decided that I may as well go the whole blingie thing and have some green grips as well . 


Here is a cool little high beam switch thingy that I made to compliment the little bits of brass on it. 
More little bits of brass on it 
My mate Pete made this lovely fork brace for it also. 
Getting there , 
Slowly slowly build a long green jobbie

Ladies and gentlemen,attention please. I'm living on a diet of cold baked beans.

Work on the bike has been steady but there ain't much worth photos yet. I have made a secret starter button , copied from the big Dutchman Shovelpower .,
What I did spot the other day was this Fuckin Killer lid . 
Elio de Angelis 
Check him out , he defiantly had style.

Wasted forever on speed, bikes and booze . We are the brotherhood all born to lose

Engine is painted and is bolted in place .
Wheels and forks are snug and bolted up.
I got my seat covered by the lovely Debs at Vonzeti . They make little cafe racer seats normally but pushed the boat out to cover my lovely throne of a seat. 

I scored this great blues harp microphone for my rear light ( I've no idea why the writing has turned blue) 
My good mate Chocolate Pete , who made my yolks , has supposed himself by making me this fork brace below. He has picked the details of the rear light and has used them on the brace. 
Well done Mr Chocolate you're a bloody star.

I went to the doctor to see what he could give me . He said "son , son you've gone too far. It's all the smoking and drinking and tripping you do".

Pipe dream. 
I wanted long fish tails , but being rubber mounted meens the pipes have to bolt to the engine and nowhere else. 
So I just cut and refigured the old pipes I had made . They always sounded ace and worked well. 
Mind you they are a bit shorter now and will properly hit the road from time to time. 

 

So before I pull it apart for paint I dragged it outside. 
This is the 1st time I have been able to stand back and look at it. It's a bloody good job that I like what I see. 
2 things to change and that's the front guard and cut the handlebars shorter. 
But apart from that ........ 
No Sleep till Sweden.

Ice is forming on the tips of my wings. Unheaded warnings, I thought I'd thought of everything.

My sister , hello Emma, is living in Melbourne . She has got herself a CBR and has just passed her test. She has seen the light , much to my mothers disgust . 

This weekend she visited a Classic Italian bike doo.

Four  things I like about this pick above, 
1 the supper rare , red Ducati  
2 &3 both of the Laverdas in the background 
4 I love the cardboard under every bike to catch the oil. 
If that was a jap bike meeting there would be no need for Cardboard , under the bikes. But if a lot of the bikers I know were there, then it would be them that would have to stand on cardboard, greasy Feckers. 


Finally lets have some CHOPPERS.

So you've been to school for a year or Two and you know you've seen it all. You'll go far in your daddy's car. Back east you type don't crawl.

I have been right bloody ill too ill to stand in the rain but not to I'll to muck about in my shed building my Chop. I have done quite a few bits and bobs but have failed to take pictures. 
But I'm pretty much at the point where I can strip it apart for the paint and final build.
So here is some photos I blatantly stole off of the Internet . 

Abouve and below is what's known as a bit of a "Clusterfuck" . 
I slowed down . Tom rode into my back wheel . Ate a belly full of shale . Just when he thought it was all over, Bad crashed full pelt into the unlucky Tom. 
Poor bastards. 
I stayed upright though ( for once)

Think  your leaking a bit of something there mate.

We all like metal and whisky. Livin hard and chasin down hell.

I know handle bars are pretty cheep , that's I why it's never been a big deal buying them. 
But unless you get to hold em in your grubby mitts and sit on the bike ( pretending your sat on an empty road in the baking sun ) then buying online is a bit hit and miss.

So I bought some 1" stainless tube . Cut a ply former . Filled the tube with sand. Heated the bar till chery red . Then bent a gentle curve . 
It was then a quick blast to My mates workshop . " hello Dave" where I used his mitre saw to cut some angles. 


A bit of grinding and welding later and....
DINGDANGDOO. A lovely set of bars. 
I'm right chuffed and they are even and level. 
Bloody result. 
I'm gunna cut em to length later . 


I took my rusty wheel rim and had it powder coated . 
I'm not sure why I chose white ( I'm a grubby fecker that hates cleaning ) but at least it will look nice once. 
Then I got a few spokes , to replace the ones I broke dismantling it, and a set of shiney nipples. 
Then rebuilt it twice , as I got it wrong the first time. Blame it on the beer.
