Been working out a new system for the engine plates i just got made - as they stand at the minute they stop me getting the engine u-bolts out, so i couldnt take heads off without dismantling the bike completely - and when i get my LSR i need to be able to pull them to verify record [the flame of blind optimism burns bright in my garage]

also spent a little time starting mocking a rough idea out for the supercharger mount

With a little luck this can become a catalogue of great custom Panthers. VIVA LA PANTHERISTA

Panther Primary

QM from britishironworks has sorted me a treat - hes getting me these plates lazer cut for the primary drive on the panther im building at the minute. assuming i got my measurements right they will be lovely. cant wait to get hold of them - then i just need to make up a million spacers to separate the plates - that im not looking forwards to too much...

more panther dress-up

So my dad has decided he wants a swingarm panther. I got back the stock rigid rear end i gave him and sorted a set of swingarm parts so now im heading that way. still loving the springer/4spoke but the shorter wheelbase sits better to me. the tank i robbed off dad too nasty colour with wrecked chrome but the shapes nice.

cheers walu

got an email from Walu in Rosario, Argentina last night

him and his dad have panthers - sent me a couple of pics and this has to be one of the cleanest panther engines i ever did see - looks great


dont seem to have a lot of luck with modern bikes - came to a stop in traffic and a transit van decided to plow into the back of me at about 35 mph. JOY

enfield butchery

had a visitor on an enfield the other week. i just noticed i hadnt put a pic up here. nice thumb size hole in the pipe so with a bit of jiggery pokery made the nasty shagtail exhaust off the pink panther melt seamlessly onto this icon of indian motorcycle history - classy eh?!
