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

Friday, 8 April 2011



charity shop's, usually frustrating places, full of  'present from skegness' key ring holder's and beige slack's but, every now and then, you turn up a gem, usually a book but sometimes a vinyl treasure, this is one of those rare gem's, a copy of a stanley schofield 'sound stories' long player, it's fate really, got heinz rosner and derek woodman on the works mz racers but, what really made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck was, 'arriving in a hurry is mike hailwood on the honda 297.....'


rear brake hanger finally done, scraped the black powdercoating off the centre of the disc, stuck it in the lathe and cleaned it up, yep, there's no torque- arm, the caliper bracket sits below the swinging arm which eliminates the need for a torque-arm, saves weight and looks neat, load's of race team's use this dodge so why not?
loveless stickers, free, just send me 'yer email, tim.dog@virgin.net, i've got a hundred, when they're gone, they're gone, thank you for your support.
the shed, majick happen's here.........[sometimes, most of the time we blunder along making it up as we go along......]
