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

Saturday, 19 June 2010


jeff decker's bronze sculpture of joe petrali, one of the all time great motorcycle racers, i really didn't know much about the racers from the twenties and thirties until i picked up a book in america and started to read up on some of these truly hard men, it put's my little project into perspective, i'm bitching and moaning because i bought a chain too short or i've had to work on the bike late and missed my tea, big fucking deal, these men were getting ripped to shreds on the wooden boardtracks riding big capacity harley's and indians bolted in a pushbike frame and wearing a jumper and leather flying helmet for protection.
