Happy Holidays

It's been a hell of a year, it's all down to you fellas supporting us and I honestly think that from that we can hit 2012 with even more schnitzels!

Still staggered at how this whole business has exploded, at the start all I could think about was just being allowed to work on Harley's and how cool that was, now 2 years on and we have our own frames, rocker covers and an ever growing array of cool shit.

I honestly think life can not get any better than this & all I got to do is keep it rolling.

So a huge thanks to everyone who has supported us and Lisa & I want to wish you all the best possible Christmas. See you in the new year :)

For now I leave you with a real time pic of the cargo ship that carries my Shovel, docking in New York......

The Frame, Boss, the frame !

Well things at the shop got extremely busy towards the end of last month and we are heading into the holidays flat out trying to get the covers, nuts & kits out to an ever more jittery array of wives & girlfriends :D

Thing is we have the first set of tubes back from Good Fabs & I am desperate to get them on the jig. The 316 headstocks are done and we are ready to roll out the first frames !

T45 is an astounding material, it's just so light, but ridiculously strong. All up our frames should come in at less than 1/4 the weight of the OEM frame and I mean a lot less !!

So just a few quick shots of the tubes and headstocks,, back in a bit .......

Pintail Fatbob

Todd from Utah has put together this Pintail Fatbob and IMO finally there's a Fatbob I fully dig :) he's not finished yet, a fair few mods to go and the paint still needs pin striping apparently.

BUT just such a cool ride.....

Forget the Chestnuts, get some Shaved Nuts!

How would you like Shaved Nuts for xmas?

These are the last word in cool!  Our own Shaved Nuts flush mount to the top of your forks and then a precision machined aluminium cap bonds in place.  They are currently available with a massive 15% discount so go grab yourself a bargain now!

Well the frames are at the final stage, Good Fabs do all our tube bending now as they work a lot with T45. I tell you that is one weird steel! We use 17 gauge, or 1.42mm wall, on our frames and it's so light that I had to try to destroy a wee off cut the other day & it's damn near impossible :D

Obviously a BFH can and did in the end, however this material is amazing. I'm just thinking that the finished frames will be so light the performance with a grunty Harley motor, should be a whole lot of fun!

So I'm jigging them up next week and Rob is doing the welding.

Other news, Blackbird is back from the NEC and now is in strip down for some major detailing work, it's been a great year for that scoot & with Jims permission I want to drag it round some EU shows next year.

Workload has exploded again. We had a 2 week lull in November, which meant I nearly caught up with orders! But now we are rammed again and Xmas is gonna get right in the frickin way,, ho ho ho x(

Feb deadline looms large for Pressure Drop! But a lifeline may have been thrown our way, as there could be an AMD affiliate show a month later in Manchester, in which case we will blow off LICS and aim for that one.

That's it, our Xmas cards are done so expect yours shortly ;)
