Popped up to London to pay the Bike Shed Event a visit at the weekend. This free, well organised event too place in the back streets of Shorditch at the Shoreditch Studios. Ive not been to Shoreditch since I as a nipper in the seventies, back then I was in the safe hands of my 6' 6" father. Things have changed a lot since then and Shoreditch is much safer and trendier.
Walking in through the gates that led to Bike Shed Event I could imagine it being the perfect Bikers Cafe, where groups of bikers could meet up, grab a burger and look at some really fine motorcycles. In fact it was so good, some, myself included might of mistaken it for bikers heaven.
If like me, you had gone to the Event and on arrival removed your Bell/Davida helmet (delete where appropriate) you might of thought (i didn't) 'I need a haircut', well you were in luck, because not only could you look at motorcycles, while eating a healthy burger, you could of also had your barnet cut by Billy & Bo the 'internationally acclaimed team' of barbers. If that wasn't enough you could honour the Event, and the excellent organisational skill of the The Bike Shed team, by having their fine logo tattoo'd by Woody somewhere on your person.
Inside the Shoreditch studio Sam Christmas' display of excellent motorcycle photography framed a studio full of beautiful custom bike, none of which looked like it came out of BSH magazine, which in itself was very refreshing.
During the day there was a constant flow of visitors riding up outside making the event spill out onto the road and out into the highstreet filling Shoreditch with the sound of motorcycles, some were reminded to keep the noise down as they too had the obligatory neighbours.
All in, a great Event, Im really looking forward to The Bike Sheds next Event
It's that fella off the TV

Custom Built Triumph Bonneville Street Tracker (as featured in Bike Magazine/ MCN in 2013)
I'm reluctantly selling my completely custom modern Triumph Bonneville Street Tracker.
I've included most of the spec below, but essentially this bike started out as a 2003 Triumph T100 with hardly any miles on the clock. I've spent thousands upon thousands to create a modern day street tracker - a bike similar to those I'd seen on the Deus Ex Machina website from Australia. Lighter, more powerful, more minimal design.
Long story short - the air box has been removed, the carbs have been re-jetted and fitted with DNA air filters - giving the bike the punch it deserves, especially when it's shed so much weight. It's got custom alloy yokes, a long list of German built LSL parts, lots of custom alloy parts made in the UK by Co-Built, Bitubo race suspension from Italy.The wheels were custom built for me by The Devon Rim company at great expense - wide alloy rims, alloy Talon hubs, stainless spokes & nipples, sealed to run tubeless tyres (more details below).
Lots of beautiful parts were built by Oxfordshire master builders Co-Built - including the the custom made 2 into 1 exhaust - stainless steel with an F1 grade inconel silencer. The bike has been a dream project - obviously spent it's life garaged and has embarrassingly only covered 3500 dry miles (sorry). It's time for someone to ride it. It's taxed and MOT'd.
In addition - I'd like to point out that this is still a practical bike, it's still got a comfortable seat to carry a pillion, decent lights and I've kept a tank that you can tour with. Lots of custom Triumphs seem to have seats for a single people and a tank that will be empty after a few laps round a car park - which is fine - but I wanted to make the bike special without sacrificing it's ride-ability.
