Roland lives in Brittany, France and has just finished building this superb Sportster chop for his friend, see Termajii blog on my list.

So now he can get on with his own bike which will be the best B31 you have ever seen. He has also started his own blog as a record of the build, follow it at Outta-Control also on my list.


Who was yours ?

I met Mal this afternoon when i went to buy his old sprint bike chassis, he built it in 1969 and raced it locally powered by an iron 6T motor and later a Hillman Imp engine. This is him in 1970 at Elvington, he flatly refused to be in any photos today!

He is retired now and as his winter project last year he dragged it from under a cover where it had been for 34 years and "did it up a bit". His wife must have thought he intended to use it again hence the sale to me ..

In his tiny workshop there were a few interesting looking sheets which it turned out covered the bike he built in '73 as a replacement to house the Imp engine...

A Kawasaki Z250 powered by a K4 Honda engine that his son used to sprint...

Everyone said he was too old for Streetfighters so he built himself one a couple of years ago, a GS750 with big bore kit, sports cams and nitrous, as with all his projects it cost about £50....

He "found" this ZB350 Gold Star in a shed near his work 20 years ago...

And finally this is the motor he originally used in the sprint bike, he built the Tribsa in the early 80s and still uses it...

He says "i never did any good or won anything, i just like building stuff and i hate standard bikes, if anyone told me to do something a certain way i just did the opposite". I would thank him on here for the bike but he hasnt got a computer and had never heard of a Blog. Top bloke.

Top. About 1975, i bought this 185 Suzuki trail bike because i was sick of everything i had breaking down and being in bits, it was loads of fun, rode it to work, in the forests, in the snow, brilliant. Probably did more miles on it in one year than i had in three on all my British tat. No rational thinking behind the jumper though.

Bottom, 1969, BSA C12 my first bike, i fell off and it hurt a lot.

Going down to Rosedale, take my rider by my side.
Going down to Rosedale, take my rider by my side.
You can still 'barrelhouse', baby, on the riverside.
You can run, you can run, tell my friend-boy Willie Brown.
You can run, you can run, tell my friend-boy Willie Brown.
And I'm standing at the crossroads, believe I'm sinking down

Riding with Eric, Jack and Ginger today. Speakers on max please.
