This is a motorcycle blog first and foremost, but right here I need to apologise for posting a truck…. but not just any truck. Oh no! this is my new classic bike hauler come parts chaser.  The truck in question is a 1964 Chevy C10, SWB stepside.

2015 already, how did that happen?

This weekend I finally managed to find some time for myself, and so dragged the Harley from the shed, and set too getting it ready for the summer, if we get one of course?

So what did I do? new rear shocks to replace the broken ones that were on the bike, NOS twin seat, vintage tank badges, new tank caps, billet points cover, and I removed the pannier frames for powder coating.

Looking pretty sharp don’t you think?

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 25,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
