Greasy Kulture

Guy from Greasy Kulture magazine came over again this week, it’s always good to catch up with him and hear about what’s going on. GKM is the only magazine that I’ve ever bought and kept on buying. I have every copy and still like flicking through the old editions. If you like the forties to sixties / chopper culture it’s well worth a look.

Guy came to shoot a couple of bikes for a future edition and he does take a great picture.


Transmission work

So the 39 is the bike I sold to Tim.  It was /is based around a 39 motor that came in the old Love bike.  Well that was taken apart as soon as it landed and the motor went into a Japanese style chopper with a Bullneck frame and matching offset forks.  It also ‘featured’ a flamed tank and up-swept pipes, very tasteful (!)

Now, some years later it is back with me, in a slightly different guise and about to change again.  I have a correct 39 frame, in-line forks (41 but close enough) and just needs a 39 transmission as the current one is 46/47.

Well the 39 trans turned up today and I’m afraid it will need a little work before launch time. All easy enough to sort but all extra and all unexpected.  Or is it these days?
