steve mcqueen, the quote is from the 'le-mans' film from 1970, i can remember my dad taking me to the 'rex' cinema on london road in alvaston to see it, i nagged the life out of him to take me, i was 11, it blew me away, there was no dialogue for 37 minutes, just scenes of the build up to the 24 hour race, it featured the infamous gulf porsche prototypes, the most incredible crash scene ever and was probably the best racing film ever.

ernst degner, mz racer.

shinya kimura's bevel drive 750ss ducati, stunning motorcycle from a great engineer, he's sold this one to brad pitt, what a fucking waste.

this is a chopper. accept no substitutes.

the devils rider, i love this picture, it's just so cool, imagine this dude riding into town, studded lewis leather and badges, long leather fringe hanging from the wrist-zip, tom cruise 'topgun' asda shades, alvin stardust 'coo-ca choo' gloves, ape hangers, 'jet' helmet, [two sizes too small] and .................. the rubber ball horn hanging at a jaunty angle, honk, honk, honk!, beautiful!
