Well thats a shame, I'd love to have put it in the next mag issue but if you're the builder chances are the current owner won't know as much about the bike.

it's quite an effective look that bike has & yeah it needs someone to take it & get it road legal, it shouldn't just be left to sit there at the burial ground

Well if you'd like to do a write up about the build, and send me some of those old photos I can certainly use it. And I will contact the current owner for some newer photos.

Just a pity that with the mag there is next to no income, otherwise I'd make an effort to fly around and do photo shoots with the bikes and girls.

Unless you talked to that guy... it seems he's contacted the magazine on his own accord.


So what do you say? Share some of the build photos and also what went into building it??

He's sent me a CD with some very nice photos of the bike, and a write up as apparently he's done a number of changes to it himself. With so much background and history to the build, it should make for a rather good article.

Can anyone get me in contact with this guy again? The disk he sent me with all the photos of the bike has gone awol since the earth quake, and from when he sent the disks to about 4 weeks ago, the office database was changed over to a new system and seems there is no longer any contact information for Dan or his sister who had sent the disk of photos to me on his behalf.

I still got the stuff Flea sent me though.
