I got the Honda hardtail rolling today and rode it home from the shop, all seemed to go well apart from one of the carbs sticking open and dumping a wee bit of fuel, as it's been stood a wile it was expected but nothing a slam from a hard object didn't fix. I wrapped the exhausts white too cause I had some hanging around, also, I have some old BMX handlebars that bolted on and they looked freaking sweet, they do need to be wider so I may pop down the bike shop tomorrow to see if they have any appropriate sized ones for the job, if not I'll just cut and weld the ones I've got wider. I found an old video I did on my computer maybe a year ago or so, just thought I'd share it for a bit of a laugh.
Ok, firstly it seems that I've fixed my new lil bike 'HH', the regulator/rectifier seems to be at fault, that is gone and a fresh-un is on the throne and the battery is currently being re-soaked with billions of atoms of energy. good.
Now the bad, Richard died this week, this is his Harley. Rest in peace dude. My respects go out to Mandy at his time.
Its seriously been that long since the last post? well, here's a couple of photos to get you up to speed. There's been a old Dodge pickup truck, runs to the Ace cafe in London, crazy scooter chops and stuffed toys, ALOT of them. I'll come back tomorrow with something substantial when it isn't early in the morning as I gotta work tomorrow....
Iron Monkey comes from the time when I was riding around on a Honda H100 and I'd be asked if I was getting on the iron horse, I felt that was a little extravagant given the thing would go no faster than 55mph, thus, the Iron Monkey term was introduced. That is all.
