A Manual For Heavy Living.

You know, it's not all beer and skittles publishing the worlds finest manual for modern HEAVY living. Actually - it is. Here's what we've been up to. Andrew knitted a lovely little bonnet for this kitten called Dinger, I reckon he's done a great job and this cat is rugged proper for Winter. Then we disturbed an alien robot but beat him in an intergalactic shit fight of colossal proportions. Grabbed this shot of him before we fully vaporised his ass, bro. Then we had a look around John Lundmark's pad and shot some pics of his 27 Indian work in progress and 42 Indian Chief. There see - beer, skittles, hypothermic cat's, aliens and bitchen motorcycles.

Four wheels, two bikes, a couple of dudes and a Seahorse

Here's a couple of shots of bikes we're featuring in the next issue - out early July. Stand up gents Dennis Blair and James McNaughton let Andrew crawl around in the dirt beside their bikes. Check out the Seahorse we found too - I thought these were make believe like Smurfs and pay rises.

Tornado Collector

OnePercent correspondent and tornado colletor Matt Murphy was at Wintersun over the weekend. Sounded like a pretty good time and Matt got some cool shots. Matt - where is that twister you were getting for me? You promised me a TORNADO!

Space Truckin!

Well we hit the road before dawn on Friday in search of R.F.G.T (real fuckin good times) and we met some cool people and saw some crazy shit. First up was a visit to Rocket Speed Equipment in Hamilton. They have a bunch of cool projects on and have some serious capacity to turn out good shit.

A quick stop into Cambridge Panelworks to check out Dale Gerrards 25 Chrysler roadster. Used to be a four door but aint no more.

Next we hit Jimmy Haneim's for a look around. Awesome place and a nice guy - could have talked all day but Vegas was calling.

Got to Rotorua and hooked up with Russell Lowe and got some shots of his very cool model A, couple of beers and off to Palmerston North.

Desert Road - waiting for aliens.

We slept in a University car park and then hit up Kruzin Kustoms - Kendal has shit going on! Cool projects and cool stuff to drool over.

Next stop was Chris Berkin's house - his Willy's is a motherfucker and we loved it. Chris's street just happens to be a very long and straight piece of road. Let's just say I've had a ride in this car and leave it at that.

Chris and his boy took us to a pretty special place - loads of old tin and a dude called Wolf who's been collecting cool shit for 50 years. This place blew us away. Full story on all this jazz in issue 2 out July 5th.

BSA is a roller.

I picked up a 38 BSB push bike for her-in-doors at Kumeu. Cool bike, was in a bit of a state though. I've just got it back together and it only requires a few parts before she'll be rolling. Check out the copper finished rims. I'll post another pic when it's finished.

Summers over. I've been driving the T Bucket around all summer and loving it, time to pull it all apart and do some more work. The trans is getting rebuilt, painting the chassis and motor and sorting out the upholstery + a million small things like the wiring which I took care of last night. Feels good making some progress - I miss driving the fucker already though!

Achtung - Rock Me Amadeus.

Er war Superstar
Er war populär
Er war so exaltiert
Because er hatte Flair
Er war ein Virtuose
War ein Rockidol
Und alles rief:
Come on and rock me Amadeus
