Well it seems that this bike is again building itself…..
She seems to be fond of the 70’s crisco style.

Managed to swap my old front end with a friend for the vintage skinny springer that is 6 over. Once installed I realized it would not allow me to turn with the coffin tank, since it’s an inline springer.

I cut up the coffin tank to skinny it down and in the mean time picked up a peanut tank that I spray bombed. I may just keep the peanut and paint and sell the skinny coffin tank because I love how this bile is turning out.

So I went on Lowbrowcutoms and found the P-nut tank and a nice Bates Style rear fender. Continue Reading →

Jimmy – By 1867, just 18 years after opening, the cemetery was just about full.  An average of 1100 burials had taken place each year, or about 21 every week.  By the mid 1860s the problems of bodies close to the surface, open graves and seeping water saw a growing agitation for its closure. Neighbouring businesses complained of maggots and blowflies coming from the cemetery.  After heavy rain, the ground appeared to disgorge maggots – a stark reminder of the mortality of humans and the corruption that followed death, and an indication of the shallow depth of some of the graves.

On cold mornings a sickly damp mist hung just above the ground, while on hot summer days you could barely walk past it without a cloth over the mouth and nose. Continue Reading →
