Franklin's Indians
New Book release Franklin's Indians
Beware this fine book it passed our BritBike filter..
Panther Publishing says, we think this is one of our best books yet! Franklin's Indians - all about the man who designed the Indian Scout and Chief and of course the bikes themselves. A fascinating look at one of the great pioneers of Irish motorcycle racing and possibly the foremost designer of American Motorcycles in the 1920s and 30s. The book has a wealth of period photos and is a major contribution to the literature on early Irish motorcycling, Indians, and the US motorcycle industry in the first half of the last century. 
Publication date is set for September 1st.

 BritBike present Spider's cartoon
Spider's cartoon - 
Spider has been chuckling to himself about the time last summer when Howie accidently glued his eyelids together whilst attempting a roadside repair with superglue, much to the amusement of the Kentites. Spider now wonders how many other members of this site have experienced superglue disasters. Let's hear them lads. Don't be ashamed - we promise not to laugh (some hope!). Regalia Regalia, T-shirts, decals etc t-shirts, with new waterbased inks. This means it basically 'dyes' the fabric, so you don't sweat from having a big imprint on your shirt, this gives a vintage look and never fades or cracks!
