You may have noticed a distinct lack of posting here recently . Fact is , my computer caught a major virus and is taking a while to get repaired . I still look in from time to time and hope to be back to normal(?!) soon . Thanks to everyone who looks in here.

Glittercycle vs Megacycle

This is the kind of stuff that keeps me awake all night. Does anyone actually know if Bob Aquistapaces bike and Larry Howards `Glittercycle` are actually the same machine??

JoMo Mojo

I`ve had Harry Woolridge`s book `SpeedTwin and Thunderbird Bible` for a while now and it`s a real source of inspiration . Lots of detailed technical info. plus those artists renderings they used to use for advertising .

A couple of pictures in it really grab my attention , though . In the section dealing with the `47 Speed Twin , there`s two shots of a bike which it says was customised by Johnson Motors .

The caption just says it`s what JoMo told the Meridan factory they should do to improve the design.

I had to make do with just enjoying the pictures , until I found this;
and more specifically these pictures and info.

Ain`t the internet wonderful sometimes ?
