another perfectly good motorcycle ruined.......

yep, i'm listening to the jam tonight, iconic photograph and no sign of paul weller, [that's bruce foxton, the bass player doing the jump]

wish i had the balls to take the belt covers off my ducati and run it open like this, perhaps get away with it on the track but on the road?, one little stone and it's goodnight vienna, like to see stuff spinning around, i'd like to put my fingers in there, oh, i just got a feeling of deja-vu there........................


after digging through my collection of model cars after the 'wild honey' post, i came across this little gem, the 'organ grinder' funny car from 1971, the driver has the old fashioned welders mitts, open face helmet and gas mask combo going on!


amazing hotrod beetle, so much work in this, the front axle is pulled way forward, roof chop and channeled, just imagine how high a standard beetle engine sits then look at the roof line,in comparison, absolute genius.
