ben part, [of sideburn fame] guzzi cafe racer and beautiful girl, originally used in a davida helmet advert but what a classic photo.

750ss bevel drive.

i really love this picture, ironhead sportster, white leathers, red wing boots, s+s carb, straight through drag pipes and flames, it really doesn't get any better than this.


nostalgia drags this weekend at shaky, front engine dragsters with pie crust slicks rule, [apart from straight axle gassers, preferably tri-chevy], which would rip your kidneys out and eat them.

kawasaki h1r, 500cc, powerful two stroke engine built into a frame with a hinge in the middle, shit brakes and tt1oo tyres, great fun, my mate hancock who was a few years older than me had the test bike out from the old davique motique shop on boulton lane, i met him on wilsmore road on my old 250cc rd yamaha, we swapped bikes and i ripped off on the h1, the bastard frightened me to death, the steering damper was not just for show i can tell you!
