I've been asked a couple of times this week, how on earth do I find the time to put this blog together for you all. I'm pretty proficient at it and to be honest it doesn't take that long, and it's not like I'm any different to you, I love looking at all things motorcycle, mechanical, engineering and beautiful, so it's more of a pleasure then a graft. But having said that last weeks 900 odd images did drain me a bit. Just as well I suffer from insomnia ( three more sleeps till Santa anyway). but I digress, this weeks installment is a bit shorter and a bit more manageable. This is due to the fact that I am 'working' again. It seems rather strange to say that again, but never the less it's true and I am loving it. If you can call work putting front ends on GT1000's, pulling forks out of BMW's and arranging all sorts of things from paint schemes, to parts, and amazing discussions with friends over a few beers about design and the aesthetic of motorcycles. I am blessed with all sorts of considered opinions from people and have surrounded myself in some very talented people ( I'm quite good at that apparently). My new painter is just such a pleasure, with nearly as many ideas as me, and I am looking forward to seeing his work. I've commenced building a bike for the Auckland motorcycle show and it will be on display there for all to see, so am really looking forward to meeting with people and talking about the thing we all love and that's motorcycles. So dah dah dah dahhh here's this weeks installment for you all to enjoy.
Basic Black what a cracker
So there you go. Nice and sweet, certainly some inspiration in there for those of you who want and need to be inspired. My new web site www.carbonartcustoms.com will be up and running from next week if my son Max can get it together, it will be full of nice bikes to buy, Bimotas, Ducatis, customs, and great motorcycle apparel. . It looks like I'm going to be pretty busy over the next few weeks as my workshop gets built and I get my new office up and running. Shit I've bought some equipment in the past couple of weeks, new compressors, media blasters, drill presses, bike hoists, linishers, you name it I've nearly got it all. All I need is power!!!!
I have to say moving to Tauranga has been such an inspiration to me, No bullshit, no naysayers, no negativity, just people who want to get on with stuff and I find that quite enlightening. All I can say to you in signing off, is shed the shit, walk away from the word no, and enjoy every person you meet.
