Strange. Around these parts we only hang old pedophiles from the ceiling.

We RIDE our Sporties !

Default there's something about the ironhead...



It took a little over two years to get this to this point in the photo. Trial and error...buy some bits and parts and try...some were wasted money, others had to be modified - sometimes I got it right!

Truly - some of the best engineering in motor bikes - the ironhead.
