drunks, lovers, sinners and saints

 oh yeah, while we were down in welsh wales we met up with the legend that is mr des davies and stuck his ducati 350cc single race bike project in the van, des's instructions?, 'do what you want with it boyo' hello mr ducati, meet mr hacksaw............[cue manic laughing, like an old hammer movie, if you are my age you know what i mean, 'ha, hah, hhhhhaaaahhhh.............']

donington classic festival-part four

'ey up dangerous dave, i've had an idea' 'prey tell then timmy loveless, what idea do you have forsooth?' 'let's cut up both of sweary mick's aermacchi singles and make a twin out of them' 'timmy, you really are a blithering idiot sometimes, it's already been done, lino tonti, the famous italian designer responsible for benelli's, mondials, gilera's and bianchi's has already done it, he made a bike out of mostly stock aermacchi parts for the top-end with a one-off bottom end, realistically two singles twinned to give around 68 bhp @ nine thousand-thousand-eight-hundred revolutions-in-the-minute, a brilliant concept back in the day young lovey, what you saying?' 'fancy an ice cream dave?' 'don't mind if i do, two-flakes, raspberry sauce and chopped nuts on mine youth and by the way, read up on your italian race bike history, dickhead...........'
