Ed ecco la nostra prima bobber, prodotta su base Honda Shadow del 1992, con solo 38.000 Km.

E' il mio autoregalo, esattamente come la avrei voluta quando ero poco più di un ragazzino.
E' stata la prima moto di grossa cilindrata che abbia mai guidato quando avevo solo 11 anni (lo so è illegale e bla bla bla) e ne sono stato sempre rapito...
E' stato un affare, era la moto di mio cugino e gliel'ho letteralmente estorta dopo anni di pressing (grazie Fabioccio, ribadisco che mi hai reso felice!)...

Finalmente vi ho messo tutto il mio amore ed è venuta esattamente come volevo:



- assetto ribassato di 5 cm;
- apehanger commissionato su misura;
- strumentazione spostata lateralmente tramite staffa autoprodotta;
- telaio brutalmente tagliato (che goduria);
- sella monoposto marrone;
- base della sella autoprodotta e personalizzata con un patchwork di giornali della marina militare del 1932;
- via le plastiche e il parafango anteriore;
- faro posteriore vintage;
- stop autoprodotto utilizzando un catarifrangente di un Fiat d'epoca;
- targa laterale con staffe autoprodotte;
- catarifrangente originale anni '40;
- pneumatico con fascia bianca dipinta a mano;
- specchio retrovisore singolo circolare (nelle foto ci sono ancora quelli vecchi);
- indicatori di direzione più piccoli possibile ed aftermarket;
- soffietti forcella;
- fiancatine laterali e carterino impianto elettrico fatti a mano;
- manopole marroni;
- accessori e borse varie usate, riciclate ed adattate ai vari usi.

La moto è stata pubblicata su alcuni siti di appassionati riscuotendo notevole interesse, ma la soddisfazione più grande è avere e guidare una delle moto dei miei sogni.

And here's our first bobber, based on 1992 Honda Shadow, with just 38,000 Km.

It is my own gift, just as I would have it when I was just more than a kid.
It was the first big bikes I've ever driven when I was only 11 years old (I know it's illegal and blah blah blah) and I've always been kidnapped ...
It was a bargain, it was my cousin's bike and I literally got rid of it after years of pressing (thanks Fabioccio, I repeat that you made me happy!) ...

Finally I put all my love into it and came exactly as I wanted:

- 5 cm lower trim;

- Custom made apehanger;

- instrumentation moved laterally by self-produced bracket;

- brutally cut chassis (which heats);

- single brown seat;

- base of the self-produced and personalized saddle with a patchwork of 1932 italian military navy newspapers;

- the plastic and the front fender are gone;

- vintage rear light;

- stop self-produced using a reflector of a vintage Fiat;



- original 40's reflector;

- side plate with self-produced brackets;

- hand-painted white tire;

- single circular mirror (in the photos there are still old ones);

- Smallest possible aftermarket direction indicators;

- fork bellows;

- handmade lateral side panels;

- brown knobs;

- various accessories and bags used, recycled and adapted to various usages.

DEPECHE MODE - Where's the Revolution



In assoluto uno dei miei gruppi preferiti di sempre...
--
Absolutly one of my favourite bands ever...




Ph by Anton Corbijn










Where's the Revolution


You've been kept down
You've been pushed 'round
You've been lied to
You've been fed truths
Who's making your decisions?
You or your religion
Your government, your countries
You patriotic junkies

Where's the revolution
Come on, people
You're letting me down
Where's the revolution
Come on, people
You're letting me down

You've been pissed on
For too long
Your rights abused
Your views refused
They manipulate and threaten
With terror as a weapon
Scare you till you're stupefied
Wear you down until you're on their side

Where's the revolution
Come on, people
You're letting me down
Where's the revolution
Come on, people
You're letting me down

The train is coming
The train is coming
The train is coming
The train is coming
So get on board
Get on board
Get on board
Get on board
The
The engine's humming
The engine's humming
The engine's humming
The engine's humming
So get on board
Get on board
Get on board
Get on board
The train is coming
The train is coming
The train is coming
The train is coming
So get on board
Get on board
Get on board
Get on board
The engine's humming
The engine's humming

The engine's humming
So get on board
