talking of Tom, i fitted a side plate conversion to his new rocket three then took it arooond the airfield for a hoon. Is it cool? dunno. but its ridiculously foccing fast and hen some. in piss pot and t shirt once the revs went past 3k it was more than flesh and blood can stand...

latest one to get carbs and 'lecrics sorted. might have been a contender if it wasn't for crap striping/paint job. Needs to be candy blue with correct border pinstriping in silver or gold imho. or candy apple red like that 550 i built for me bro in law six years back...

i remember sitting on one in a showroom when they first appeared. they looked so radical, particularly because you sat in it instead of on it. at the time, it was a little too much for me, but it was the shape of things to come.

yup. im not a cat person (but very much a dog person) but gotta admit thats, well, the dogs bollocks... :) ;)

MCT is a suspension company run by Darren in Stowmarket mate, hes brilliant with all set ups but does a particularly excellent front end one for gen one fazers. Me and Dynspud have them on our bikes and swear by them :)

its a weird acronym for Easily As Good As A USD Front End, Some Would Say Even Better. strange I know, but I think the original AGAAUSDFESWSEB just wasnt snappy enough.  :) ;)

Not Harley fan myself, but if I was to have one it would be this one

Gnasher I had one of these but hated thetwin lights, especially as one is dip and the other head, meaning riding around looking like someone has given your bike a black eye. modded a bosch metal shell headlight and bracket (off a ducati monster) to fit instead, and done away with most of the chrome, much betterer, and cooler. shame about the gimp rider though...

Good job you put it in after all then ogri. The 6 months extension wouldn't have been worth sailing through a stonewall with a pallet of bricks on the back :eek  for sure. Doesn't bear thinking about. Same reason I put my car in, as there's not many places to go if it all goes wrong on that steep hill at Symonds Yat  when I go fishing.
Symonds yat...bloody right mate!!

fellers i think the extension applies, but...
Its done 174k, and is a bloody good workhorse, occasionally having to hump a pallet of bricks or maxi bag of sand (.8 of a tonne), both forked into the back with the weight right where you dont want it. So  put it in anyway. and.... the front to rear brake pipe blew at the testing station. coupled with both rear springs being broken (eeek! front of both bolt hole eyes had dissapeared leaving them sitting in the remaining C cup) and it needing new discs and pads on the back (fronts done last year) along with several slightly smaller jobs!
im glad i didnt leave it, despite the cost (800 sovs). Its a good van. first time ive had a 'dangerous to drive' certificate lol. not that you could, the brake pedal went to the floor.
get it back tuesday. in the meantime got some old bikes to fix... :)

the 400 ws sweeter. gonna tighten the tappets up once hes done a few miles onnit

one of the few classics id actually like, that 400.
though the 750 turnd out ok

theres some sort of tool i saw in a big engineering workshop that works kinda like me ultrasonic tank...attaches to a bolt or stud, then puts high frequency waves sort of like tiny vibrations through it for twelve hours or so, which frazzles the rust bond between the threads. Wind straight out clean. be great if they brought out a small, inexpensive version of that.

It's an excessive noise ban they're proposing. Perhaps it's like over here where completely unsilenced, deafeningly loud 125's on L-plates are giving everyone else a bad name.
and Harleys  :)
