Making omelets

That's it I've broke some eggs. Nows the time to start making an omelet ...
Bloody frame is so heavy 34 kg 
But now I've just chopped off 9kg I feel a little better.
The tubes for the seat / shock supports are nearly 6mm thick . 
Next job is to post it to my good friends RockSolid Motorcycles in Portugal . 
They produce lovely work and seen as I have a Triumph frame to build and I'm flat out buisy , I'll happily pay them to so the work.

100000 views cheeky lady time

I just realised that I have over 100000 views . 
That means that I have to celebrate with a lovely lady.
This beauty used to help me sleep at night when I was a wee sprog.
Enjoy and thanks for taking an interest in my rambelings.

New pink floyd album

Tinkering in me shed. New floyd album on wireless, beer in my greasy fingers and I managed to get me sweed around some chopper geometry .

Got me forks 10" over
Got me wheel 15"x 9" drag wheel
So I mocked up the sportster tonight to see how it would look. 
Fuckin ace , that's how it will look. Handeling may be a bit shit but I can deal with that.

 Tyre is a 215x60x15 it's slightly narrower than the rim so nothing is wider than said rim . This gives me a bit more space for my drive chain. An also gives the wheel a very slight camber.
I did have a bit of a moment in my haste to river the bike on blocks. 
Once the wheel was removed I lowerd the frame onto 5" blocks but as it descended it picked up quite some pace. But it's OK because both of my middle fingers on both hands acted as a lovely bump stop between the stand and the cissy bar. 
I was trapped squealing gently to my self getting slightly panicked . I was completely stuck. 
I had a vision of myself being found the next day passed out with my hands trapped in my bike. 
I had to summon all the power in Grayskull to lift it back up to free my poor digits. 
Fuck that was a close one.

Sunday shed time.

Right so I've cut, bent , bashed, sweated and tryed my hardest to use my new welder. 
Result is I have half made something minging . 
But I did manage to burn my fingers 3 times, learnt to use a foot pedal , got a little pissed off and baked two amazing apple pies.

Sat 14th national "where's the hairbrush" day.

Every body in the house askes me " where's the hair brush" I'm the only fucker in the house that NEVER uses a hairbrush. I'm unsure why I would have the answer to that.

Motörhead and Ace Cafe

This weekend was a right supprise. 
Mrs Oily won tickets to go and see Motörhead on sat night ,  courtesy of Plannet Rock ( our rock radio staition )

In the morning we went to Ace Cafe for breakfast. ( thanks to Hugo an Sergio from Rock Solid motorcycles , in Portugal for suggesting that we go there. I didn't realise how close we were an they used to live in London for a time). 
First time I've been there an it was bloody great. There was a military vehicle meet there as it was rememberance Sun. 
Motörhead were great as always but the Dammed were brilliant and a massive supprise was Boss Hoss , 11 members in the band that put on a brilliant show. Well worth watching.

Death proof

Me an my lad are watching Death Proof. 
I tell him that it's a film that flopped at the cinema ." Nobody liked it". 
He says "its full of chicks talking chick stuff. So blokes don't like it . An it's got some very violent stuff that chicks don't like. No wonder it was a flop" . 
Wise fecker. 
Next he says . " is New Zeland off Scotland?"
Just when I thought there was hope he goes and dropped a spanner in the works. 

Kustom Mag

Years ago I used to regularly go to France. 
Every time I went I bought this Mag. 
Only wish I could read French

The winter build starts

Happy November . 
We haven't  had a lovely Lady for a while an since the photo of Mrs November Looks a bit wonky , here's another picky of a very sensiblely dressed young lass on a dirt bike . 

The last few days have been a bit of a step forward in the bike building stakes. 
Unfortunately I have no photos for proof. But . 
I bought new valves and vale stem guides for my Trumpet then I dropped the head and barrels to a fella in Tavistock that used to build GP motors . We  had a chat about the whole "speed = money" an he said he will help me build a fast engine.....
Then about 2 hours ago I purchased a set of 10" over forks for my chopper project , from the states. 
Now I'm a bit excited to say the least.
