Curtis And Jeff

I don't know about you but a well organised workshop gets me everytime, this is Curtis's place in Utah. Man I love it, everything is stored away in its right place, full of great tools and machines, everywhere you look in fact. Curtis builds film props for a living and he is the best there is, he is very skilled and this workshop is a glimpse of the man himself and the quality of his work. I am always gobsmacked at places like this, if it was me there would be crap everywhere and I wouldn't be able to find a thing. Isn't it great that people like Curtis are still doing their thing in this day and age?

Curtis is Jeffs uncle. Jeff and Curtis are building this brilliant Vincent together, bouncing ideas of each other and getting busy with all the fabrication. This bike is going to fly, its super trick and a thing of rare beauty

They are everywhere....

... HIPSTERS that is...

Maybe Its Time

So, I have been wanting to build something like a Dick Mann type of CB 750 for ages, like years. Only make it for the road, with lights and all that. I reckon a doner bike is no problem and should be cheap enough, mainly 'cos it doesn't need to be original. Right, well Seat and tank no problem. Pipes easy peasy, just a couple of Biltwell kits and some good welding. Rearsets and central oil tank again pretty simple. Paint? a no brainer. However, its that fairing, hard to find and well expensive, it needs to be one with the perspex bubble for the front light too. Or maybe some leds frenched into the race one. I can muck about with it to make it all fit. mmmmmmmmmmm.

Best Tattoo In The World

You know it.

The Girls Are Back In Town

This is a picture of me and Rosie, my daughter, back in London in 1994 when she was about 4 or 5. I had this great Matchless G12 CSR as a daily driver and I used to take her to school and back on it for many years. That was followed by a Norton Atlas that she was equally at home on. I folded the rear pillion footpegs up and cranked the bolt down really hard so they wouldn't fold open, that way she could reach the pegs no problem. All we needed then was helmet that fitted and Bobs your uncle. The only trouble we had was she used to fall asleep sometimes, I would have to ride down the road with one arm behind my back holding on to her so she wouldn't slip of the bike. Rosie is still, to this day, the best pillion passenger ever. This was in a Sunday magazine at that time, I don't know who wrote the caption just below the photo but what a load of bollocks.

Anyways, fast forward like a million years and she is now 21, Yikes!. Her and Deans sister, Maria, have moved back over to LA for a little while, its really good to have them here. Even though they are eating us out of house and home, a bit like those soldier ants in fact.

Bogo Pogo

Yeah baby! what? no, you will just have to wait!
