Ben Part./ sideburn magazine


Like ten to twelf years ago , we met Ben at Croix en tournois (FR).
We were havin`fun at the seventies cycle track days round easter.
He came driving on his amazing aloy dressed Guzzi all packed for the weekend,
from the Netherlands were he and a buddy of him had a "shop",
and it wasn`t a coffee shop, it was a custom bike shop .
That shop wasn`t well know , bud they did manage to build the sortlike Guzzi
for the Star Wars actor , Ewan Mc Gregor ... stunning set-up.
The guy wasn`t surrtenly a common guy , with his outstanding sideburns ,
huge seventies glasses , piercing in his ... naaee I donno.
Even during racesessions ,he was the only racer in a pure white coverall.
He came by our truck with the 10 or so ,bikes in front , guess he was even more
attracted to the pile of beer can`s out in the back.
He asked if he could stay over for a night or so . No problem I guess.
Don`t know exactly were he slept , if he slept at all.
Afterwards he did a full report on our black Ducati racer for the Ducati Factory Book
on the track of Assen Holland.
What a bloke that Ben part... I like him for what he is , surtenly for his photograf`s.

Good memories with some of the unapproachables


Beemer racer , Geert , like always witha big smile ...

Me chillin ... as always

Master builder Kenny dropped us an invitation for a
small bbq-party in his b.yard .

Fellow Guzzi -kustomizer and co-founder of 70`s cycles ,
Frank H ... one hell of a dude .

Our New-Holland engineer and alltime redneck , with his
lovely lady. Stijn is also crazy enough to be Kenny`s co-pilot
in our sidecarteam (classic racing , on small wheels) it`s a dirty
job but someone`s gotta do it.

Swapmeet score ...

His dad raised him as an all time handmade dude , so again it`s gone

FN -motorcycles in their shed , pics of those are soon to come, I hope :)

Once Upon a Time there was


A young fella` with a cute little beemer "Cafe Racer",
he was about 18 years old and his dad , bought him a Yammie XS 650
to get him his driverslicense ... that was the beginnin of a local biker heroe.
This helmet was the guy`s first helmet he had
He `s worn it for a decade , even to school and so ...
A few years back , he called me , he was gone take some oldshit out he says,
come and take a look bro .
On the pile of worn-out clothing and bits& pieces , was this worn-out
helmet.
Are You trashing all of this I said , Yep he said ... laughin ,
and the Unapproachablehelmet ? Yep he said ...
You can have it , if you want to ...
This unwearable helmet`s hanging on my collectionwall
in my livingroom ever since.
When we were chasing names for the buddies some while ago ,
we came up with "the unapproachable" , what was written on the back
of the trashed helmet , now we `re glad we kept the small pispot , just for mascot.
