ok - bj [moonshiners] has made me do an intro with a couple of bits of stuff i have going on here - sorry if post is too picture heavy but been drinking and didnt realy realise untill it was too late

ive just been in the garage - trying to put the cylinders onto my 45 - thought - oh yea beer can as piston ring compressor - ok better empty a couple of them - worked as ring compressor but also sliced my hand open - bugger

safer in here drinking and typing i recon...

first off - i didnt build this one - i designed it, made full size plans etc and got a guy i know with a chopper shop to do it for me... long story but at the time i had the cash but no space - i was living on a boat blah blah... so the boardtrack came into existence...



i love it... im taking some more pics this weekend for benny but this is the only one i have at the minute and it isnt complete in this pic...

then we have my shovel - daily hack -ride about 75 miles aday on this to and from work



then we have my 45 - engine being rebuilt totally - stroked and bored - should go ok but hell its a 1944 engine - its not going to win any drag races unless i can find a likely 50cc scooter to race against but it will be a lot of fun



this is a comp up photoshop job of the style i am going... got a frame and stuff flying in from america as i type - i want it now!!! - if only i had enough cash left over to pay for the fast shipping instead of coming over on a boat sometime when they are ready....

then lastly we have my hack of a car [sorry i know its a bike forum but hey...] that will in the future when cash allows.... turn into a 70s style pro street racer style beasty....



so yea... thats pretty much me and what im upto

Is that a kawi Vulcan 800 back wheel on the boardtracker? I am thinking about using one on a project, looks exactly like that.

Nice intro.

thanks for the kind words - dice magazine eh?? compliments indeed...

but if i was to get anything in there i would want it to be all my own work - like i said i just did the design on the boardtrack getting the lines right etc not the build [the bit that requires the skill] and the shovel im just working ontop of what the bike was like when i bought it - new tins seat floorboards etc.... so again not entirely mine... just modifying a bit and refining to my taste some...

the 45 though - that is ALL mine right from a box of mainly harley engine parts with a few triumph bits thrown in for good measure just to add to the confusion factor.... that will be something i am proud of as my work and would think about getting that featured somewhere...

Sumo,
is that you from the FHP forum? If so, e-mail me - lost your address. I've got some pics and stuff you'll find useful.

Cheers Johnny
