Drag Strip Racer

Post by Harleywes » Wed Jun 22, 2011 10:57 pm

This is my first posting so I though I should tell a bit about the store. Drag Strip Racer is an online store and EBay store. No shop front. We specialise in custom motorcycle parts hard to get and hand made. I'm a dealer for lowbrow customs and ship regularly from them. I also sell Greasy Kulture magazine and have all back issues , except issue 1, available. If you haven't seen GK magazine then your missing out. Check out the online store at www.dragstripracer.com
I'll put up some pictures of some cool parts as soon as I work out how to that.
Keep coming back to this Forum as I'll be updating it on a regular basis.
Thanks
Wes

Weld in Bungs and Tabs

Post by Harleywes » Thu Jun 23, 2011 7:27 pm

I now have in stock Lowbrow customs Bungs and Tab. The amount of time this can save you fabricating each of the bungs or mounts you need on a motorcycle is immense. The ability to grab what you need off your shelf and keep working rules. I only have limited numbers of these. If your starting a project these is the place to start.

Greasy Kulture Magazine

Post by Harleywes » Sat Jun 25, 2011 7:10 pm

Greasy Kulture started as a website back in 2000, championing a twilight world of traditionally styled, low and loud choppers and hot rods...
And now it has transformed into a glorious, full colour quarterly magazine, promising no billet; no swoopy gas tanks; no high-dollar hot rods.
Just a street-level view of some of the coolest people, events and transportation on the planet.

Issue 21 is the Lastest issue of the Magazine.

A custom bike or a chopper should be something that has had the original essence of its existence altered to project the skills, objectives and artistic vision of its creator so the viewer or “beholder” and the creator can be positively stimulated by the actual bold or sublime beauty of the bike. Both need to project an essence of suitability, practicality, function and righteousness that has no stand for mediocrity or aesthetic blasphemy.

I'm tipping Harleywes is the very talented and very modest Wes Bungay, chopper builder extraordinaire, I could be wrong but I'm tipping I'm not. Its OK Wes, I wont tell anyone.
I have never met him but his bikes have tipped the scales way over into the cant be beaten camp. I wrote an article in a Heavy Duty issue that had a Wes Bungay bike on the cover. How clever am I then.....

OK OK I have made a faux paus, or as they say in some quarters a fox paw.
Its Wes Spark I was thinking of.
Wes Bungay is still a good bloke though.
Ive been buying GKM from him for several years now.
And Wes Spark still builds mind bending choppers.

sorry to say I've never had a bike on the cover of a magazine. I'm just your average tinker in the shed kind of guy. I've build a couple of Iron head sportsters and one Evo Sportster from the ground up. My current bike a 87 heritage softail I've rebuilt many times in the 18+ Years I have owned it.

I'll have to see if I have any digital pics of the Sportsters I've built.
I'm currently building a new house at the moment so that is taking up most of my time. My old softail is due for either another build or it may be time to sell it off.

I like that points cover, how much would one of them sell for with maybe a pair of new screws to match?
