Flamin` Hands

Double Weber , redone by a pall of ours , lookin`
bitchin he`.
While starting "da bitch" up , she gave me the straith
'fuck you' by a big backfire trough the carbs.
A bit fuel came out , cause the constant kickin
of my bro Kenny , holdin my hands for the inletcones
to get a more richfull mixture of fuel and breathin.
putted my two hands on fire , #fuckin shit witch#,
with all the fuel that leaked out of the carbs.
Buddy Kenny had to get down on his knees from laughin ,
lookin at me shakin my hands like a real stuntman would
do , in style.
The same time I was laughin at him cause his precious
Weber was still on fire and he didn`t had a clou.
I think we gone name the sickle , flamin hands because of this.

The XS master-brain chillin by his chair
with a view ...

My daily driver

Moto Guzzi V11 first edition, rebuild
into a `70s endurance-style.
I used a vintage Norton -seeley full fairing,
that I`ve streched and reformed onto
the needs of the bike/engine/sittingposition.
All brackets in stainless , polished , clearcoated ...,
made for easy modifing into standard again
when needed afterwards.
Clip-ons are stock ,but reversed left to right and put
upside down to get a more sporty position.

Rear end rebuild for the higher exhaustposition.
Exhaust is made from scratch stainless ,
with termignnoni mufflers , all polished highgloss.
Engine remained stock, except for the chiptuning ,
K&N breether and some small changes (+12 HP)
All in one , in a couple of weeks hard labour , you get
a whole different bike , surtenly for my 2m length.

Xs vs- Laverda

When we go on track on the local streetcicuits
of Belgium , it' s with the whole bunch of "homies",
and it ain't just for drivin I can tell you that.
Our Red ducati roundcase racer you saw a couple
of weeks ago and the Xs side car kneeler and the black
battle of bears (twins) ducati are previewed.
Well these two hotties right here are fine examples
of what a homebuild Classicracer should look like.
These two ladies are scratchbuild from frame uptill
the fueltank and from frontend just untill the ass.
All metal , engine , tune-up , lacing , painting
and weldingworks are done by mostely one person
only ...the wonderfull spanish coucaratcha Julio Ortiz.
This handyman does makes his bike "right in your face",
nothing to fancy are glittering , but straith on,
with not to many words
"I think thats why he's loved so much ".
RESPECT Hombre !!!

Me on the Ducati -Clubman

This was taken on the 70's cyclerun
near Gent (Belgium) a few years back,
it's sporting a 920 cc Hi - pressure
rebuild in Australia at Veetwo ...
with all best bits and piece on hand
for those Old Ducati round-caseengines.
Make sure you check the guys out for them
trackdays on the circuit of Croix en ternois,
You won't regret it I'm certain.

Grease runnin trough the vains

My big example , my granddaddy
learned me all about motorcycles.
He himself was more than a regular biker
at that time ,he didn't had a car , it was his
pride and joy.
Always drove english steel and just a few
Belgian makes.
This pic just shows him how he was ,
always smilin , no mather what.
The shot was taken on a roadtrip on
his Trumpet,
in the spanish mountains according
to my grandmother that is.
Never had the chance to drive along with him,
hope just one day ...

Tribute to one hell of a guy ...THX pops

The Adams Family : Full story

These 2 fine lovely lookin' ladies are proudly owned
by two hell of a guys from nearby London ; well
6 or 7 years ago they were.
That's the time I met the chaps , on our Guzzi Classic
oldtimer weekend near Brussels (Belgium) .
I do remember they arrived on fridaynight , tired of
driving , cause they left london directly after work ;
took the ferry and came straith ahead towards the ralley.
By the time they arrived , everything was setup for the weekend,
so we were chillin'at the bar.
After they put their tents up , they came in to have a drink with us.
For some of you guys know , the Belgian beer is NOT the same
as in the rest of the world , surtenly not when you're use to drink
heineken shit or lagerpiss or something , well we Belgian
beerdrinkers are real men when it comes to drinkin beer.
So those guys , asked me for a real beer , cause they wanted to try
theme out , now they were in Belgium.
Good soul like I'm , asked them if they were used to drink strong beers,
I remember , they were laughin at each other , You know like "whats the fag's
talkin about men", and answered me , just gimmy what you got , like nottin'
could strike them, cause they were ENGLISH guys ; boehaha ... so gave them Duvel,
Grimbergen , strong Leffe and so on ...
Next morning , well like around noon the appeared out of their tents , A LOT
Uglier then they got in the night before.
At late afternoon breakfast , I asked the guys if they slept well ...
One of them mumbled , that they were TO TIRED (Bwahaha) to drink
such strong beer , and that they gonne show us that evening ,
how good a regular English beer drinker is up to ...YEAH RIGHT...
We did see it alright ... that Sundaymorning was little Hiroshima aside Brussels.
One of the bro's is the webmaster from the S3 750 site and brother of Guy Bolton
from the Greasy Kulture magazines/blog , both of them S3 drivers listen to
the name Adam , thats why ... The adams Family ...
they 're lookin similar bad in the morning : )

My younger years

Signing late eighties , early nineties ;
Back then I was a die hard , long hair dressing
hard to get , son of a bitch .
Never had colours on my back tough;
Untill 6 years ago , I drove between 25 -& 40.000KM a year
on all the bikes.

My V7 Moto Guzzi '69 , was a imported example
from Italy , made it drivable in a couple of months;
Became full dressed and reliable for long distances.
That little bastard sure learned me all about the
"wrenching on the road" .
Like they say , in good and bad times ,for better
and for whurs.
Sure miss the bitch ...
