i have been busy at the chop shop over the last year or so building a pickup. it has been built solely by me in a tiny garage with hand tools. the idea behind this is to show young people who want an open wheeled car that they can build something cheap. as petrol prices go up and running a v8 hot rod on the road becomes just a dream to most, this hopefully will inspire somebody to get building! here is a teaser pic while i sort though everything.

i decided while i was cruising my bike the other day to keep going even tho it was getting colder and colder.i learnt a very important lesson! imagine the scene im ripping along on my scoot when jack frost really starts nipping at my heels. i button my jacket right up and try to get snugged down. after about an hour i pull over and get off. oh wow! i forgot i was packing my chick! she had turned to an snow girl! so remember its cold out and to wrap up warm.(or just stay in the house with the heating on full blast watching celebrity sing bastard)

a friend of mine was on holiday lost somewhere in the Scottish highlands. you know the score if your on holiday you just keep going till you find were you are. anyways he feels the bike start to wobble from side to side. he starts to snake down the road like hes on a frikkin python! pulls over and sure enuf, hes gotta flat. nice timing man. looking around theres nothing but hills and the odd sheep. sitting there not knowing wat to do next, would you believe it a car rolls up. the dude in the car asks if he needs any help? my friends like yeah but i don't think you can, i need a bike shop.the dude laughs and says get in man, theres one in the next town. wheel in hand he jumped in the car gets the flat fixed and even gets a lift back! abit of money was forced into the dudes hand at the end of it all. its sweet when you get help when your down and out. so next time you see a bro at the side of the road cussin his scoot, give him a hand!

NEW! MEGAFLAKE HELMETS
This is the next generation of Biltwell helmets. It's the same lightweight and comfortable shell but with a few significant upgrades. The flake is much bigger and crisper, hence the "Megaflake" name. Vintage style chrome strip around the opening is pure class and only available on a Biltwell. The new liner now has detail stitching and contrasting ventilated panels in the top. The embossed goggle strap has a new shape and an improved snap.
just dont fall off!mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Living in England and riding a chopped motorcycle takes a special type of person. Everything is against you. The weather is crap, the road surface is mostly potholes and the car drivers hate you and want to kill you. Hang on though before you all get depressed, this means if you meet another chop guy or gal you will get on like brothers/sisters! This is only applicable to old or vintage chop riders though. You don’t quite get the same scene if the person turns up on their factory fresh twin cam with custom bars. Yeah they might love to ride etc but the soul of old bikes/cars takes an understanding. It’s getting to a show and thinking yeah we did it (you and the machine).
A good example of this is the hotrod hayride. Each year it’s the pinnacle of the calendar. I’m always planning the modifications to the bike around hayride. The trip down for me is 5 hours with only stops for petrol. My bike doesn’t like motorways so it’s A roads all the way. Once out of the city the country roads take over making it a sweet honey of a trip in fine weather. When I arrive at the show some friends and new faces are there greeting me at the gate with smiles all round. Then its stories of the trip like getting lost and if anything broke etc. the friends’ Ive made there are all old machine lovers in one way or another and I know we will be friends forever! After a wild show of hotrod lifestyle it’s back on the bike for the long trip home.
Hopefully someone with fading interest will understand what I’m on about and keep the faith. Without others it’s a lot less fun.
