A Verdant Workshop

Falcon

– another photo of Ewan and his favorite marque. This is a caféd Moto Guzzi Nuovo Falcone. The famous bacon slicer flywheel obvious on the drive side. The green color scheme of the workshop furniture even matches the fuel tank.

Full Breakfast

Egg Yolk: Sunny Side Up

I can see yonder…

Upright Stance

– long gone is the day when I wanted my handlebars low in racing pose with clip-one. An agéd back and stiffening hips means I need to have the steering fettled to achieve a straighter searing position. The Tigers bars, though tall, still have me in a slight crouch. So I have fitted these Rox Risers which add 2” to the bar height. Huge difference. I sit tall with a commanding stature on the bike. Easy upgrade for me.

Slicked back hair, Raybans, leather jacket and turnip’d jeans. The BSA Gokdstar is just for effect. Smaht!

Oi!

Rockers! Evocative photography of a ton-up boy taking off on his cafe’d ride. (The photo is actually a contemporary scene made to look period: the swing arm of the bike to the rear left has a hefty tire and matching swingarm)
