PostSubject: Ben from whangaparaoa   Sun Aug 17, 2014 3:09 pm

Hey guys n ghouls.
Im ben im currently riding my late father inlaws 100year 1200sporty that he left for the boys of the family to enjoy.
Still trying to convince the wife me building a day of the dead themed jap4 hard tail bobber is essential for my sanity. Sparky by trade and part english ( moved here 12 years ago coz england is shite and nz is chur as)
My other love is my mk2 escort wagon that ive had for 8ish years have pulled it apart put new motor,box,suspension, paint etc etc. anyway thats running like a bitch now so the spanners will need to come out.(that is a never ending situation with a moded ford)

I build things with my hands and some times they turn out rough but functional.i can fix anything. The fun is in the build.

Welcome aboard Ben. I like the idea of the day of the dead bobber. I think you should get started.

Welcome young man. Don't forget to keep a photo graphic record of each and every stage of the

gestation and birth of this magical beast. We are all photo junkies and and need fixed up regular.


Cheers, Bob

We don't get enough photos to be honest. I think we should get everyone on here to take at least one pic of what they are working on.

Sounds cool. There's a Wellington-based 'pop artist' Xoe Hall who does some cool day of the dead stuff. http://xoehall.wix.com/xoe-hall-art

I contacted her about painting my tank but she's overseas and busy until November... no hurry!

Good luck with your build and as the others have said, please post pics.
