FINALLY A PICTURE OF A LATHE

 I always like seeing a picture of a " lathe in action" on somebody's Blog site.
Well now i have a picture of my own, I feel like i have stepped up a level.
Unfortunatly it's not my lathe (but i have realised my life wont be compleete until i get one.)
This lathe belongs to my friend Paul. I went around to his house after work so that he could take time (Time is a very special thing, so Thank you Paul) to show me how to make up some spacers. 
 I could not get 15mm bearings with the outside diameter for my wheel (it's a sportster wheel) so i used the normal 25mm bearings and made the spacers to compensate.
 As you can see the spacer is left long so that it pokes inside the central spacer so as to keep it in place. 
 BINGO..
So today i fitted the bearings and spacers to the wheel.
 Laced and trued the rear wheel with a wider rim.
Spaced the rear disc out so that the calliper missed the spokes.
Worked out what size spacers i need to make for the rear wheel.
and welded some mounts, for the seat unit, onto the frame.

There's "SLOW WORK and SHOW WORK"

 Had another day of snow today so i maneged to skive off work and hide in my shed..
 Some times you seem to make massive progress making some thing that looks impressive.
That is "SHOW WORK"

Then other days you spend most of your time making little brackets and mounting stuff.
 You think "I'll just knock up some brackets".
Then you Measure, Cut, Adjust and Weld. Then you look at the clock and the whole morning has gone... 
That is "SLOW WORK" not very impressive but just as important..

I was starting to think that building this Tank was a bad idea. But now that it is nearly finished I'm diggin it..

RD 350 LC

Moiks old LC with powervalve wheels. this bike is the reson why
i first said "hello" to him and then the knock on effectis why i
know my friend Richie and my wife.....
He looked so cool with rear-sets, army bag and a ,man size, chicken on the back .
 If you have never owned one you'll think it's only a 350 that "tossers in jeans, bomber jackets and Simpson helmets" ride... If you have owned one you'll know that they are fast and scarey and that it's fun to be a "tosser in a Simpson helmet and bomber jacket."
Adam Varns LC special. It was the TITS (shame about the quality of the photo)
He was a big man, but with a tank full of "Avgas" it was fast as fuck.
Oh that was after it blew a hole in the piston on the way to the Isle of White.
He had to suck little bits of metal out of the crank-case with a straw in
the carpark of the Little Chef, then he rebuilt it and thrashed it
around the island..
 All thies photos are from Moik a good friend and rider of LC's.( Yamaha RD350 'or 250' LC). 
My old LC before Moik sold it to me and way before i nailed it into
the side of a GS850 at 70mph.

Moiks new LC.
Suzuki RGV wheels and swingarm and very blue paint.
I haven't had a go on it Yet!!!

TAKING THE "CITY SLICKERS" FOR A DAY OUT

 It's not exactly "Resevoir dogs" is it? 
My friends called by so we could go for a ride today, so i took them to a hill climb, near where i live. I think they enjoyed it as all they did was moan.. Thats not totally true but they will definatly not be joining the "ramblers association".
There was some bloody cool stuff and some compleetly crap stuff that tryed to make it up the hill, the best thing I saw was a Hillman with a 4 litre engine nail that hill, it sounded bloody awsome aswell.

After wards we we went for a ride to the pub,,,,,, BRILLIANT.

MAKE THIS YEAR VERY COOL

Check more of thise brilliant photos HERE
Remember when you first got into riding bikes, or surfing, or horses, or climbing mountains and everything about that new life was so exiting all you could think about was the next time you would be out there?
 You would trawl magazines and gain as much knowlage about your new life and aspire to be the best you can?
This year instead of just riding to work (still do that) use your bike (or what ever you hobby is) as it was originally designed. Use it as a way to be free and live.
Be excited by everything again ,like this lad above, even if your helmet is so big you may as well be wearing a cardboard box. 
HAPPY NEW YEAR .
