  • Making Wheels

    This BMW Chopper build has been a wild ride, it has been over a year since I unboxed a brand new BMW R Nine T Racer and removed the heart of it for this project. BMW’s support was instrumental in making this project a reality, but don’t be fooled, this is still a budget operation. […]

  • BMW Chopper for Born Free Part 2

    If you had been following this build on Instagram and Facebook you will have a pretty good understanding of the effort I have been putting into it. I have really focused a lot on raising my personal fabrication standards with this bike. Writing the ETS Fabrication School content has definitely helped! The biggest change has […]

  • BMW Chopper for Born Free

    Well I think it’s time for an update on the BMW Chopper project. Since getting onto the Born Free invited builder list the pressure on this build and myself has really ramped up. Lucky for me this isn’t my first rodeo and time management is possibly one of my strong points. But I do know […]

  • EICMA 2019

    I don’t even know where to start on this one. When I went to SEMA in 2017 I knew it would change my car show experience for ever. I was also warned that EICMA would do the same. After waking up a little shady from the El Solitaro Whisky launch party I busted into those […]

  • Road to RedBull Hangar 7

    This time last year I booked some flights to Europe, with everything that was happening I ended up putting them on hold. Fast forward to 2019 and those flights had to be rebooked or forfeited.   As the timing was a little off we started with a flight to Abu Dhabi and then a drive […]

  • ETS x Bell x PBK

    Helmets have been a big part of my life, some of the biggest highs and lows have been inside one of these and each time I put one on I know I am going to have a good time. After wearing just about every helmet on the market I continue to enjoy my Bell Helmets […]

  • Chopped 2019

    After a little break Chopped was back! What is Chopped? It’s hard to explain, old cars, motorcycles, good music, food, drinks and people. This year they had a drag strip and it was all the motivation I needed to get the old 1951 Triumph off the bench and give it a run. Oh and the […]

  • Scrambling on the Rickman

    Two events popped up recently that I wanted to attend, a Vintage Scramble day and also the Chopped festival. The vintage scramble day allowed me to get the 1969 Rickman Metisse out for a round of racing. The setting was Gellibrand in rural Victoria. A grass track event with natural terrain that suited the conditions […]
