Quick ramblings from the author

Custom bikes and the lifestyle will never leave my blood. When they say biker for life I believe they meant it. The First time I was introduced to bikes was when i was about 3 years old, We lived in Brixham in Devon and my Aunt and Uncle visited from London on there Norton Navigator. I was aloud to sit on it and tweak the throttle. Well from that moment onwards I was hooked .

I had to wait about 12 years to get my first bike with an engine, An old Honda SS50 5 Speed. From that point there was no looking back and bikes have been a massive part of my life since. 
If you have a story to tell or anything you want me to put up on this blog just give me a shout, As long it is about Bikes, Bikers and the lifestyle i will chuck it on here. Lets keep it free and see where it goes.

Early 2009 and life was pretty quiet in the woodturning about a year after i started to learn to turn until one day i got a message from an aquaintance from a Biker forum i belong to.

"Steve do you think you will be able to make a wooden headlight to go on my dads old bike and sidecar outfit i am restoring as a tribute to him?"

Well being a biker myself and because i love working with wood and always fancied the idea of marrying wood and metal in some form i jumped at the chance.
Could we pull it off ?
There was only one way to find out..

After a few discusions and Richard coming down to Marston from Leicester with some headlamp parts i set to work firstly finding a piece of wood big enough and woth the right look, So off i trotted to my Aladins cave called the Bedford Saw and Tool Centre ( I have a link on my Page on the right).
I found this piece of pine sitting there that was perfect for the job.
