Cafe racers are in choppers are out,yet more bullshit ,why do these people come out with all this?,its just as bad in the custom world,bobbers this baggers that,Brits better,japs better etc etc ,big tyres,skinny tyres ,hot rod crossover style etc etc ,its all good! I like it all ,OK some styles aren't to my taste but each to their own,lets all be more fucking open minded !!,I like classics,customs vintage stuff art deco all sorts of stuff ,we should all be promoting creativity and building etc supporting the industry not spouting bullshit about whats in or out,styles change and evolve ,my take is NOT follow styles ,do your own thing !
I fucking hate polishing,black snot,cough,dirty ears,eyes,smelly,and I'm now a talented blues player with rhythm and a good dancer,and i can sprint the 100mtrs faster than a white guy on Dianabol...Like the end result though ,I can see lots of polishing over the next few weeks ,frames off to coaters this friday,you can see my new logo i have for my front plate (no lights on this one )
MY FAVOURITE BUILDER,HE IS JUST FUCKING AMAZING,his bikes have soul and breath handmade parts all over and with style and a certain true vintage look,dunno what it is but he has it in spades as far as i am concerned,truly inspiring
Rock me baby or maybe it should be rock the fuckin camera baby ,can t do pics or vids or guitar playin,but i think i got the hang of this bike buildin milarky.....what ya all think?,anybody out there??
I have been building lots of things over the Christmas,and making little adjustments to my frame etc ,carb is now a 45 Weber with a one off throttle linkage i made,the rear brake assembly is finished,added axle adjusters,finished the exhaust manifold ,its near to being stripped down for the frame and wheels to be powder coated blue,the next job is making a tidy cable operated front brake master cylinder,then when that's done i can strip the bike and send off the parts that need coating and get stuck in to polishing the engine and blower,i have finished the fuel tank and it didn't need any extra welding.no leaks!,its fucking heavy though,because i made it out of 3mm thick stainless,because that's all i had!,i have to strip the BSA gearbox and put the internals in a new casing which i have De seamed and mirror polished,my stainless seat is getting drilled and polished today,no padding just holes! ,i rebuilt the NSU Fuelpump ,that has to be fitted hmmnn what else ...probably lots ,here s a few pics ,lots done but it doesn t look like it,also got myself a 240 /16 tyred wheel for my next project...and have been playing the blues badly again as well ......
