A Blunter Sharp End

We scored a complete (but rusted) early CB450 K1 front end for the '77 CB550 Project, Drum's are infinitely cooler than the clunky disc/calliper front end.

Got the polishing Rags out and started on the sliders and Top Yoke, need to get the stanchions hard chromed, then just bushes, shoes and a whole lot more elbow grease. It even fitted straight in.

New Project

Had this old Honda ('77 550 four) kicking about in the Basement for a few years after picking it up for pennies - actually was in profit after selling off the gubbins from it.

Eventually my friend Nick rebuild the Engine and we chopped off the rotten rear end and made up a new one......and then it sat for another year during which time Nick took ownership of the bike with the intention of us building a cafe racer together ready for next summer.

Last night it got dug out, and enthusiasm is raging to do something with this space!

Only thing is I need a bigger Garage!

Cheers for the help with the cycle project Bill

The Backstreet Bucket

One of my all time favourite Blogs is by Chemical Candy Customs, not only do they turn out some of the tightest paint around, but they also run a tight ship on their blog too.

Daily Posts covering Chops &; Bobs, Knees in the Breeze, Daily Bread (gorgeous nekid women for all you pervs...& me), and my favourite 'Control' - a series of posts showing what bikes are really there for - to be enjoyed.

Pics from the BackStreet Bucket (Chemical Candy Customs) blog - check it out!

Made me laugh.... did too

Gorden's TR5 Outfit

My mate Gorden is putting together this lovely droptank TR5 outfit....sidecars are so bloody cool, and this machine is gorgeous!


....well 0.75 to 15cc depending which you look at.

I love anything mechanical, but the internal combustion engine is without a doubt the best invention ever, regardless of size and purpose.

Terry has a collection of model airplane and boat engines - these things are awesome; even more so when you fire them up. Fully functioning engines this small are just fascinating!

Those big ole 15cc engines are all magnesium, so cool!

On ebay now...
