UPDATE - Nicotine, Gasoline and Alcohol

It's done, and it's f#ckin' amazing!

Check it dirt bags.

What began as a comedic birthday present for a buddy, evolved into a master piece. This hand sculpted jewel by Trav at High-Test Speed and Machine Co. is worthy of crowning any scoot on the planet (with corresponding paint of course).

Oh, and did I mention it's for SALE!!!!

Here it is primed and ready for paint. 

Flames. Koi fish scales (at least that's what I see) and the layering and line work is incredible. Wow! The killer paint job is the handy work of Scott at Chemical Candy in Austin Texas. If you'd like to make an offer on this triple threat tank, email him at the address below.

In case you were drunk (which stands to reason, given only a pi$$ tank, metal thrashing mad biker bastard would admit to viewing this lame a$$ blog) and don't remember W-T-F the tank looked like prior to paint, here's my OG post.

 Motörheadster  - Nicotine, Gasoline and Alcohol

If you'd like more info, or to find out who these people are who designed, hammered out and painted this fine piece of hand crafted custom motorcycle artwork you can check the links below.

Metal work by: High-Test Speed and Machine Co.

Gas cap by: Speed Customs

Paint by: Chemical Candy / Back Street Buckets

And if you miss out on this tank, Trav has indicated he'll be bashing out a few more which will also be made available on his site.

The tank, behind the one in the foreground looks to be another motorcycle beer holder in the making... which of course is cleverly disguised as a fuel cell. Brilliant!

Happy Birthday Iron Fist

On this day in Motörhead history April 17, 1982 'Iron Fist' is released.

Need something to commemorate the occasion? How about a cool f#ckin' T-shirt.

From their web store: Motörhead Iron Fist double sided Men's Tee. "(Don't Let 'Em) GRIND YA DOWN" proudly displayed on the back of the shirt. Made by Hanes Heavyweight of soft 100% cotton.

Get it here;

So... still bitchin' that the OG lineup of Kilmister, Clarke and Taylor is, and forever will be, the best Motörhead trio of all time? Well, here's 'Iron Fist' then and now, 30 years later.

You be the judge bitches.

Mikkey Dee is f#ckin' amazing, Phil can shred with the best of 'em and Lemmy, never better. As for my choice, well I'm unlike those who choose one lineup over another because it's simple:

Motörhead is Lemmy, Lemmy is Motörhead. Period.

Nicotine, Gasoline and Alcohol.

Ladies and dirt bags it's been a while since I last uploaded my thoughts to this sorry excuse for a blog, but if you're lookin' for an apology (because I haven't hammered out the odd live show review, detailed my riding adventures or my most recent surfing exploits) you can kiss my a$$.

However, this is SO worthy of a post... I had to parked the scoot and sit my sorry a$$ down in front of my Mac for 20 or so minutes, to pass on this awesome piece of metal bashing brilliance.

It's called: Nicotine, gasoline and alcohol.

Yep, there's a beer holder and a place for your smokes in this sweet lookin' fuel cell.

Truth be told, I'm surprised someone hasn't designed/fabricated something similar sooner. I mean it makes perfect sense. 

Sure... you can buy a 6061 billet aluminum motorcycle storage tube from Harley-Davidson for $160, but that's f#ckin' gay compared to this tank.

I mean just look at it. F#ckin' brilliant! You may need a leather strap with snap affixed to hold your Camels in place at 60 mph.
