Well, having had a top end strip last year and been given a clean bill of health, my sporty has taken a white-smoke oil-in-exhaust flavoured dump. 'kin harleys. What to do? In my experience you can strip and rebuild to your heart's content, but if you don't really know what yer doing, you're pissing in the wind. And paying out x hundred quid for a pro fix is out of my student budget, that's for sure. I'll have a word with my engine guy and see what he thinks. So...and this is just a thought...the fucka may be heading to ebay soon, and profits re-invested in a xs650. I figure if one of those gets a rebuild, it'll be a whole lot more reliable, and anyway, I've always liked 'em, they're a classic chop motor and look great. Drum brakes and kickers rule. Here's a few from a random google search, absolutely no marks if you spotted the hinckley bonneville that slipped past the radar.

to be honest, I kinda want to leave Guy's pix at the front of the blog, they are WICKED. can't wait to see that thing for real. But here's the tubes I was talking about. They'll even bend them up to any supplied pattern. shade over a one-er with axle plates and everything.
plus I vow...no more daydreaming on my part. I won't stop putting kool rides up on the site, but no more BS without spanners turned and welders fired up.

roll on building time- but i'll be keeping it real simple cos college has a shitstorm brewing for me!
on another note- anyone found a good supplier of pinstripe gear? pinstriping uk are kinda pricey, and various US-based suppliers haven't been forthcoming with contact. any ideas gratefully received.
also, no pix yet, but i did a final polish on one of Darren's cast club plaques the other day. it came out a treat, the big guy's really done us proud. watch out for these beauties (that's the cars and plates, not the geezers) at the hayride in a week or so.

If you hadn't noticed, the pictured bike is yet another from japanese master builders 'crazy orange'. Personally I don't care about 'jap style', 'west coast style' 'east coast' 'brat style' or whatever, it ain't a fashion thing.
CLUB NEWS- Darren has just finished a bunch of plaques ready for the hayride. they are fuckin' SWEET. I've got one to polish up just so the big guy desn't steal all the glory (only joking bruv).

I wish I could bring more of that sloptail in the background. Note the use of heat wrap and discarded front guard, it must be a 'bobber'.

Random Rumblers koolness...flames AND stripes on a kickin' shoebox ford- too much? you decide... nice wheels anyhow; and one for the D-man, a totally rusted out ratty flathead ford. Fake patina I think not. (That alternator kinda spoils the effect, but at least it probably keeps it on the road). Sweet inspiration.

WOW this is probably bordering on just too much love for a humble sportster motor, but how nuts is this stuff? That lower one looks like he's actually built up the metal on the valve covers and engraved that, whatever, it sure looks nice.

A couple of sunday drivers for you. gotta love stripes...maybe ya don't, but here's some nice lines for your perusal. Cream an' red one-shot on black certainly does it for me.

my wish list is as ever in a state of perpetual motion, and one set of wheels I need in my non-existent garage is one o' these, a good old chevy suburban. Perfect for getting the rugrats on board for cruisin' and all round fun.
