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

Sunday, 27 February 2011


mad john finally finished the paintwork for the bonneville in the early hours of sunday morning, 1500 hrs sunday afternoon he was sat in our shed hand compounding and polishing the finished tank and sidepanels, i'm making up my front brakeline for the sporty, dangerous is turning up a couple of aluminium mountings for the sidepanels to replace the galvanised items that come with the sidepanel mounting kit, 'bastard', me and dangerous look round, mad john is oblivious, 'shit job', we look at each other, mad john is lost in his work, 'fucking rubbish', i'm trying to stifle a giggle, dangerous is suddenly concentrating very hard on his turning, 'right, that's it, fuck it, i'm taking them back and doing them again', i make a brew and we seriously have to talk him out of taking them back and repainting the flawless finish, mad john, painter, legend....
