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

Monday, 16 April 2012



sitting in the shed tonight trying not to ponder too much the missing engine saga, i idly picked up the rear hub i purchased last week, hmm, it's a heavy old thing for sure, get the scales out, 3.6kg, i'm sure i can lose some important unsprung weight from the casting without compromising the strength, i study the casting, select a 1/4" drill bit and get medieval on it....................



more photo's from sunday's bhr meeting, i took load's of photo's but while watching the bikes and scooter's out on the track i kept spotting stuff that i'd missed in the paddock, the range of different machines is awe inspiring at these meeting's, one thing that a photo doesn't convey though is the sound, the single cylinder manx's, the velo's, the booming vincent's, the scream of the stroker's and the howl of the triple's 'on the pipe' yep, the sound and the smell, the methanol, the castrol r, hot rubber and the sickly sweet synthetic two-stroke, a heady mix for sure.....
