Mods vs Rockers... more images

Sure I could repost images of the whole ride but I think its far more important to post image of me... so I can prove I was there! Find me in this one:

Mods vs Rockers... images

I have finally found some great images of October 25th's Mods vs Rockers Ride posted by Rob Steer. He has great images showing the meeting place at Brighton Beach through to the destination of Kustom Lane Gallery in Hawthorn.

Another good set of images is contained in a thread posted on the Melburg Luft web site - lots of images of the bikes and scooters parked outside Kustom Lane.

Mods vs Rockers

Today I went on the Mods vs Rockers Ride - it was huge and an amazing thing to be a part of. It was my first showing AND I WON BEST CAFE RACER!

I'll post some pictures when I find them elsewhere... I was riding.... I couldn't take pictures!

It's not a big man's bike

I've been passing this wall on my way to work for 19mths and have been planning this photo every morning - yesterday I finally took it! As you can see my hand beaten side covers have been mounted properly this week... and they haven't fallen off yet.

Decisions, decisions, decisions....

I've mocked up the bike and wheeled it out into the sun to take a look at the side cover in position, but more importantly to look at the orange dynoc on the tank.... I like it! But it also looks good without a stripe... does anybody want to comment?

It's only going to get shinier!

Seven months and two TAFE courses later, I've finally started to make aluminum versions of the factory plastic side covers.

The first night class that I enroled in was on welding steel (oxy, arc and MIG), and the second was on panel fabrication (panel beating). I got to use an english wheel and a vast array of hammers and dollies - then I taught myself to arc weld aluminium.... a proud moment indeed!

Since this image was taken, one of the covers has been polished - I'll post a picture as soon as I remember to take a camera to the workshop.
