New motorcycle magazine..

I'm working on a brand new magazine project now. Since the unfortunate demise of my last title I have been researching local bars and their products and after some additional work back at the computer the new cover is ready. Now just need to complete the rest of the rag! Happy days.

New truck... wow!

This is Betty - as in Betty Ford.. We got her recently and she's a '71 100 model with a 360 cu in motor and four on the floor transmission.. Full length bed will be cool for haulin' bikes etc.. Hey I mean haulin' them during builds not to events I hope.. I had to sort the clutch linkage out and replace the starter motor.. oh and fix the fuel gauge too but she's good now - fingers crossed! Sweet backdrop courtesy Mr M.O.

Finally - a build update!!

This is where I got to so far on the knucklehead - still awaiting the motor which is being rebuilt by my friend Mike. Now progress has been good considering we had to move recently but after some furious last minute work into the wee hours I rolled out the bike to the truck when leaving day came! My good friend Oscar supplied the incredible springer front end - super slick and very narrow. I found that initially I had to instal the front wheel minus the brake plate but after some calculations and a bit of head-scratching I have found a way to get the brake installed in this fork & working.. It's all good. I've designed some really cool 'bars - well, I stole a design and changed it to the size I wanted actually! Gonna fab those next. Get bent..
