You Finally Find , Your Helpless Mind.... stuck inside your skin,
You want to leave ,
But you believe,
You won`t be back again.


`You start the swerve,
The downward curve ,
That catches up your fears ,
Each thing you do ,
Comes home to you ,
Pounds inside your ears,

You start the fight ,
Against the night ,
It screams inside your mind,
There`s something black,
Against your back ,
It grabs you from behind.

Reverberation .`

Si Baroni

The Favourites list just got one link longer....

This is a Public Service Announcement...

.....with Guitars!

For reasons I don`t fully understand , I seem to be able to receive e.mails from some people , but not reply to them . So if you`ve mailed me and you`re thinking what a rude fucker I am for not getting back to you , this is why . I know I`ve sent stuff to Richie B in the US and Ron Van in the Netherlands which hasn`t got through , apologies to you two , `normal ` service will be resumed ASAP .

Still missing Link .

Van the Man

Nice guy Ron , from the Netherlands, e.mailed to say he had received one of the 4" NOS lights from me . He also sent me some shots of his lovely `51 5T project . This thing is gonna be great , some really choice period custom parts , mixed with a stock frame and front end .My kind of bike ! Keep the progress pictures coming Ron .

Whilst we` on the subject of these lights , I notice the headlight on Tim O`Keefe`s beautiful Panhead is very similar in style . When this bike was featured in Street Chopper , the headlight was described as `early AEE` . Any AEE experts out there know if these are the same units rebranded ?

£Parts for Sale£ Bantam Tank

I`ve got this BSA Bantam tank up for grabs . These don`t come up for sale, as clean as this, very often . There`s a couple of small dings on the centre panel , if it was me , I`d run it with a strap down the middle anyway .The tank is basically ready to bolt on and go . Comes with a cap , but no tap ( easy to source ) . I`ve included pics of these tanks in action on a couple of killer bikes .
E.mail me for price and details as usual .

£Parts for Sale£ Zed/Dragster Bars

I`ve got these nice old Zed bars for sale .
They`re 1" diameter , but have a reduced end on the left(!) for a Triumph 15/16" throttle . I`m guessing most would want to run them as Zeds , not drops , they would work well like this too , with a 1" throttle .
They`re very similar, in style and dimensions, to the set on the sweet Jokers Panhead pictured above .
Nice older chrome , with a couple of love bites in the middle that match up to Pre Unit style U Clamps . They look wide enough to work with Springer/Dogbone set ups too .
E.Mail me for price and to discuss the angle of dangle etc.
