The Mutt - The coolest 125 money can buy

Benny's been busy creating the coolest 125 available on the market today.

The Mutt is a brand new Boneshaker Choppers production bike and comes with 2 year warranty, fully registered on a new plate and even a full tank of Go-Juice to boot!

Based around a bullet proof 4 stroke GN motor made under licence from Suzuki, you get a maintenance free, kick ass cool scoot - perfect for commuting and learners alike.

Seriously - what else is there on the market you can jump on and be this instantly cool?

Built by guys with true passion and skill - go get yours now, for the bargain price of just £2900!!!! yep that's cheaper than most factory bikes out of the showroom with a hell of a lot more kudos on the street!

Get in touch with the boys on 01562 730429 or 07913 325297
Check out further details HERE, full Website to follow shortly.

Stolen.....from the Corpses From Hell Blog

Fuggin Awesome - read the post here

Little things....

.......that make progress happen

Trying to mock up the rear end of the desert sled project, realised i couldn't do the rear guard until i had the seat in place, so a quick search on the bay of evil turned up a bates copy seat, then a dig around the parts supply gave me a pair of 2" springs (Benny I think you gave me these after you sent me the seat for the T100 - ta) so all that was left was a little lathe time to make some bungs for the mounts, quick hour, and then a seat bracket was needed - something simple that worked.
Full of gusto i started drawing up a quick, easy design to cut out of some steel i had laying around then when it got to the point of filing slots with a very blunted file my interest lapsed....thankfully I knew a great laser cutting place down the street and half an hour, and 30 quid later they gave me this, 3" stainless and 10th of a mm the rear end fab can begin, and its looks better in stainless than steel anyway.

Simple but affective, and you won't see it anyway!

Trinkets and Ball balls

So the T110 Desert Sled project is on a go slow whilst I try to locate a rear hub and get the engine I've been entertaining myself with some shiny trinkets for when she's done!

Maund Speed Velocity Stacks - These are so well made and gorgeous

Hand Cast Amal Tops courtesy of Jon Liddle - again, lovely

Brand new Dynamo short cases thanks to Keith at Ace Classics - Stunning!

My latest steed

So you know how it goes - your mate throws you a text whilst you're sat in the pub having a pint, asking if you know if anyone would be interested in buying his Norton......the night goes on and the idea seems more and more appealing, three more pints later and you've come to a deal. You wake up the next morning feeling slightly worse for wear, funds a lot lighter but your day brightens up when the bike gets delivered, the hangover subsides as you throw a leg over the wideline featherbed and roar off into the last few hours of evening light and suddenly your drunken impulse purchase all makes sense.

Thanks Tom - It'll be looked after

Apologies for crappy phone pic.

Paul's Place

So found myself over in the black country this afternoon - so thought what better way to spend an hour than to nip in and see Paul. Nice to see Terry's bobber again and quite tempted by his (formally Billy Whiz's) Matchless.

The JAP-Norton is simply stunning!!!! and the velocettes.....and the home made OHC Velo engine, it all got a bit much - I had to leave before I started doing inappropriate things.

bad iphone photos again......
