Spinning wheel

Road bikes become off road custom, off road become Super Motard, super Mo become Roland Sands style road track bikes, road track bikes go speedway...... Custom, like all fashion, is cyclical, so never throw away those old hi-risers / clip ons !

I picked up my first Japanese custom Bike mag from Kinokunya(?) in Singapore back in '01, and was blown away by the stylings of Animal Boat, Moto Radical and Crazy Orange . No more boring Fatboy Kandyflake jobbies - here were 230 cc Hondas looking like WW11 military spec BSA's, draggin' Monkey bikes and whitewall bobber stepthru's. Too much fun.

All i'm attempting to do here is scan in my old magazine images, and collected net images from over the years, and gradually put up images of my '71 CB350 street tracker i'm slowly customising. I'll also put links to my favourite cutom houses and relevant restoration forums.

thanks for looking (and posting)
