Italianmotormagazine photo shoot

Adam from Italianmotormagazine has been over here in Bristol today, giving himself a early start arriving at my door by 9am. 
  After a swift cup of tea we took ourselves and both my bikes down to the docks area to take some pics.
He's already featured my black roadster in issue 5 of his mag but needed to take some more to satisfy Chris Hunter of the 'Bike Exif' website who would be happy to feature it.
  Also took shots of my latest cafe racer build for future use.
 It was quite a long day (more so for Adam with a 4 hour + round trip to get here and back) having to contend with tourist's walking by and even a steam train that tootles back and forth.
Photographing the photographer.

It got too much down at the docks so moved to a quieter old industrial area of Bristol

Off to see Lucinda Williams

 later this evening and really looking forward to it. Shame I've got to go on my own but don't know anybody else that likes her.
 It seems a strange venue really -  Aberdare in Wales approx. 60mls away  - at a small 650 seater, 1930's built theatre 
 I don't know anything about Aberdare, apart from there is a small motorcycle race track in the middle of what I believe is the town's park complete with flower beds etc.

Moto Guzzi Cafe racer Paintwork...... collected after being re-done when a badge had been put in place badly and some of the masking off was poor and now it's a big improvement !
  Also, you still can't really tell in the pics but the colour comes alive in the sunlight with a subtle sparkle

Moto Guzzi Cafe Racer

Finally got the cafe project to a stage where I think it worthwhile putting up some pictures.I sprayed the side panels myself,but finally got the rest back from the sprayers and I really like the colour I chose, though some of the detail finishing isn't quite right. The tank has got to go back as the r/h badge is far from straight.

Still a few job's to do before it's ready for sale.

Isle of Man TT...............................1955

I came across a couple of old magazines from 1955 in a box under my bed and thought some of the pics quite apt to put on here as the TT is currently running and I just like the old photo's anyway.
