Well its been a busy time over the last 12 months and we've had plenty to do. There is still a lot in the pipeline so I thought I'd give you a bit of an update.
Our next ground up build will be a knuckle in a knuckle frame, offset forks, very much in the cut down 'dirty Japanese' mold. Functional, tough, good for hard miles riding and made of old parts. A couple of exceptions might be the ignition set up and a better front brake!! After the crash earlier in the year and the stay in hospital that might be a good idea!
Build number two will be another knuckle; a special bobber with a 'sat up' look, maybe in a pan frame with inline forks, fat bob tanks, big seat, again made of old parts. The kind of understated bobber you might have seen in the fifities, without all the doo-dads that sometimes clutter a cool bike.
We also have two customers who want bobbed panheads but we're still looking for decent donor bikes and we still have the Duo Glide to finish and sell. That will be a more standard looking bike.
We'll post pictures of all the builds and keep you updated but we've still got time for any repairs or engine work you need doing so get in touch.
HOPE YOU HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR - WE WILL.
We are an independent bike shop based in Metheringham just outside Lincoln but our customers come from all over the country. If you need something doing, give us a call and we'll try and help. Whether it's OE repairs, motor work or something custom. We even sell complete bikes.
We are everyday regular riders. Our own bikes range from the 'teens' to the 2000's but most of our miles are done on knuckles and pans. Experience includes 10+ years working for the 'motor co' as well as time spent in major US custom shops and all our work is guaranteed.
