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

Friday, 20 January 2012

 friday night and we take a flyer, up to the unit where the sprayer hobbit bloke ply's his trade, park up the trusty polo and tip-toe  into the flourescent lit cave, i'm peering into the half-light and then i hear it, 'oh my precious, oh my precious, blend 'ye colour shades, eye of newt, bladder of sheep, blacker than a black thing with extra added black, blacker than a goth's diary, blacker than the dirty red dog's chance's of maintaining championship status, black, black, black.......with some shine'  [not sunnnnnshiiine like an oasis track] but, shine, like, like, like, shiny black stuff, then, i spot him, he's cowering in a corner, swigging thinner's from a bottle, 'what you wanty?] 'ey up mate, bought you a tank fairing and seat in for a spray job the other week, you said it would be ready today?' 'never seen you before in my life' [manic laughing, another swig of thinner's] 'not me mate, my mate dangerous', i point at dangerous who is trying to work his way towards the door and do a runner, 'aaaah, i remember him, yes, done it, it's over here', i pay the man and we make a hasty retreat, painter's, rare, rare as a very rare thing, he snatches the cash money and goes back to his corner, 'thank you' i offer, 'do you want a swig of this mate' he say's, be rude not to..........

  1. . . . . glad you resisted the forces of Darkness by not making a Hobbit out of the alliteration caper, the Bimmer is coming along rather spiffingly old bean, especially with the non Gallagher shade of black, look out the ghost of Georg Mier !!!! Egli Vinnie's, what a bloody unit they are, haven't heard bugger all of them over the last decade 'til your titilatingly tempting and timely tuppence ha'penny's worth, Egli don't get no respect, given his genius in frame design and modding. Ta muchly for the follow Mr Loveless, totally stoked to have a bloke of your skill level on board. I'm off to the drags at Willowbank for the day mate, look forward to catching up on spinning propellor project, cheers, Whitelines.
