ODGIE

I feel as though ive known Odgie for years, from reading about his exploits in BSH since the mid 80s and later when he became editor he printed a few of my photos, but i only finally met him at this years Hotrod Drags. My ethos with building bikes is always to spend as little as possible and ressurect old parts rather than buy new but compared this this guy i am a shamefully wasteful. He builds glorious things out of scrap, and they work.
There are a few people in this scruffy little community who i respect and look up to and Odgie is right at the top of the list.
