trompe le monde











'trompe le monde', literally, ''fool the world' as you can probably guess, i'm caning the pixies at the moment, i'm getting more inspiration from music to build this 'false triumph' than any hip blogsites, too c[k]ool for skool, bearded, plaid shirt wearing, newly tattooed, hard-man 'bro' dirty, oil leaking, piece of shit and neglected isn't 'cool', it's just poorly maintained and say's you are more interested in portraying some sort of  'image' than a genuine interest in motorcycles, hated the handlebar clamps from day one, too high, what to do, buy replacement's? nah, stick them on the miller and cut them up, machine the same amount off the top, tap the bottom 'riser' to suit a bolt, [the original is a hex head that sit's inside the bottom clamp] hit the horrible rubber-mounts with a spray can, they disappear under the bottom yoke now, turn up a couple of stainless bolts, dish the head's, why do i bother? no-one will ever see them, mount up the bars, check out the pic's, 8 + 9, that's why, can you see that? closer to the top yoke, no-one will ever notice, 'trompe le monde' oh yeah, fitted an  r and g tail tidy, very nice piece of kit, except, the led tail-light is fucked from the get-go, dissapointed? nah, i expect it me........

  2. It's not about somebody else seeing the dished bolts, but you knowing that they're there.

  3. Tromping the bloody monde son, go hard me lovely lad . . . as for leaky shitboxes, unless 'as was' untouched, unrestored original stuff, with you Loveymucker, I don't mind road grime and dirt for a while, but lack of attention to one's ride's health is a bullshit headspace, if you love it so much, show it the respect. I'm off to buy a new pendleton.

  4. with reference to "hip blogsites", I'm sure I saw on one recently, a old bike bike that had had a frame brace at the headstock drilled full of holes to "lighten" it!!!!!!!
