Rob's treasure trove

You may have noticed Rob White's ads in GKM. Rob's Used Harley Parts in Virginia is an Aladdin's cave of used everyday and rare Harley parts.

Friends in the UK have bought engines (titled, fully guaranteed) and gearboxes off him: he is happy to ship overseas. Why not try him next time you're looking for a motor, front end or tranny?

The Castle Run – do not miss this one

This is one of the best events I went to last year. I'm not going to miss the next one. You shouldn't either.

This week, I will be mostly channelling George Formby

Toes out, shoulders hunched, monkey pout, double thumbs up.

Not a good look, but one for some unfathomable reason I adopted on stage at the MBE Verona. I blame the guy with the mic doing the introductions... obviously unimpressed by my English reserve as I handed over the award to Billy and Pepe, he urged me to look excited. Well, he asked for it.

Thanks (I think) to Billy for the photo. Check out the Italian Choppers website and you can see my speech: if you don't speak Italian, just speak English louder. Works for me.

Italian Choppers.


Here's what you missed from Verona if you don't follow us on Instagram (greasykulture).

More blurry phone pics soon, you lucky people!

Jackie is a punk, Judy is a runt

More photos from Verona soon. In the meantime, here is one of the highlights from my soundtrack to the weekend: one of my favourite songs, by a band named after
Pat's favourite west end caff (now sadly gone). Class.

Sideburn DJ Dave introduced me to this tune (amongst others) and has also promised to send me the best tracks off Johnny Moped's first album (I only have 'Hard Lovin' Man' on single). Again, class.

Verona and back

Got back from Verona yesterday fairly unscathed by the snow in Europe and Aperol consumed on the trip.

We had a great time and a successful show. The Expo seemed even bigger than last year, if that's possible.

Like last year, lovely MBE organiser Gaia asked me to pick a bike from those on show to receive the GKM award; it went to this 1400cc S&S drag bike, built by a little firm called Italian Choppers (Pepe and Billy). I loved its stance and little custom touches (two front heads!), but what sold me on it was the almost exclusive use of Italian components around the S&S lump.

The tank, for example, is from an Italian moped, as is the scalloped rear valance... shaped and widened to fit. Two Brembo stoppers, check. Rare 'Ceat' Italian rear tyre, check. The dual Dell'Orto carbs, homemade pipes, front hub and Tommaselli throttle were icing on the cake. Well done boys... lovely work. We'll be featuring it in the magazine soon.

Thanks goes to my mucker Pat for all his help and to Phil for the laughs.

Stick this on your pipe and smoke it

Yep, we have new, thick, hand-screen printed stickers... the perfect accompaniment to any pipe, oil tank or hot rod window.

If you come by our table at Verona, we'll have some there.

Subscribers will get one inside their new-look GKM in a few weeks' time.

From outta the blue

From the Yokohama files... how nice is this? In the car park. 2011, 2010? Can't remember.
