New for 2013

Maybe its a sacrilege  - and I love my un-restored 1977 Harley Davidson XLCR, but every time I look at it, I think the rear wheel is not big enough and it needs to be set back more - so add some better brakes, suspension, mufflers, give the old Ironhead a tune, dress it in some new paint and away we go.....

ROMEO80 - Almost There

Yes - its nearly Christmas and ROMEO80 will be ready in a very short time.  I should at this point add some thanks to all those who helped with the project.

  • Chris McNamara  - it was his donor bike that was nicely restored, I bought on eBay
  • Steve Taylor of Taylor Made Wheels for the amazing new 23" wheels, with the drive hub for the shaft drive.
  • Dave Batchelar of P&D for all the sheet metal and frame.
  • Keith Baker of Classic Cycle Works for the sublime paint job.
  • Paul Leeson for the ROMEO80 logo
  • Colour Coatings for Powder Coat.
  • Andy from Hove for the metal polishing.
  • ..and Richard Taylor for everything else!
In January on a nice day I will do a proper photo shoot  - probably down at the coast in Hastings, real film with my Leica.
