Ed Roth Riddle.....

Well it ain't really is it...

Great Day Out....

Me the wife & the dog went to the Telmag event just outside Aldershot in hants, Bloody cold, but the number of riders that turned up was amazing. So much machinery there could have spent all day just looking at the bikes in the carpark......There were some guys competing that must have been in their seventies or even eighties, but they can still ride i can tell you!!!

Dog Ear Bars.......

Decided that the narrow apes i made are going on the pre unit build, so i grabbed another set of old apes that were lyin' around and chopped them up to make these instead, the jury's still out at the moment, but i'll keep staring at them over the next couple of days to see if i like em'......

Do You Think They Noticed.....

Verona part III

After seeing this....i now want a Flattie as my next project.






Jeff Decker......

Was one of the nicest guys we met in Verona. He took time out to explain the history of the club patches he's collected over the years. Me & benny were glad to meet someone with such enthusiasm in what they collect.

Real nice guy..


















Pretty sure Jeff had the worst gift someone could give him though !!!!  I gave him a rolled up & creased "classic" bike mag we bought in Gatwick, complete with coffee stains !!! Sorry Jeff, but that's how us stockers roll...cost me £3.90 too!!!!!!!!!!!!

But the collection of club patches were amazing along with the history that goes with them...

Fill 'em up Chuck........

Arlen Ness & The Digger........

Now us Stockers were well excited by the sight of Arlen's Digger at the verona show.
























 But for me, what made it was this !...... I  was snapping away with my camera like a tourist in soho whilst Benny was laying on the floor poking around the bike...

I looked up to see Arlen Ness standing behind the bike, He was looking at benny ( probably wondering what the hell he was doing!! ) Benny at this stage was in Chopper Building mode and didn't even see Arlen standing there. Within a couple of minutes, more & more people were making their way over to the stand only interested in having their photo taken with Arlen.....( benny is still in chopper mode at this point )

As the last of the visitors made their way off the stand, Benny stands up, turns around, and there he is...stood face to face with Arlen Ness.....Did he say " can i have my pic taken with you Arlen?" ....NO, he did not !!!  Did he say " I love everything you do Arlen, your my hero!"....NO he did not !!  He just opened his mouth and in the only way Benny could, he said " Alright Mate, what stretch you got in that top tube ? "....I nearly spat my Espresso out !!!!!   Classic!





















Arlen was great, he spoke for ages about the digger and answered all the questions Benny was firing at him...

Real nice guy...........Really Really nice Bike!!!!!!!!
