Who The Fuck Is Spindle

I'm a fat kid from Salford, been in to bikes since I could shit in a nappy. Crashed a few along the way, but i'm still here pissing everyone off. I've tried my hand at motocross and drag racing over the years. I won fuck all, but had a proper laugh, and enjoyed every minute of the time I spent with fellow racers. I have now turned my very limited engineering skills to custom bike building. I have always loved the bike shows and the creations the famous builders dreamed up. I regularly attend all the big events throughout the UK. I have taken inspiration from many builders, but more so from my very good friend Mister D.T.F.P. Benny "Boneshaker" Thomas. Benny has guided my hand through all the builds in these pages, and he has kept me safe, ensuring what creations i come up with are ride-able, safe, (all most) legal, and don't kill me. During my time in Benny's workshop I have met some cool people and made some great friends. I don't take life too seriously. The following pages are just rambling's and experience's of mine during the builds. This blog in not intended to be accurate or period perfect, its just for a laugh, and describes the things I like and love. Please feel free to hurl abuse and insults.
Fuck my old boots, here's

i've been driving around in trucks for 25 years, consequently i sit on my arse listening to the radio all day, today is the first time i've ever heard this cool tune played on the radio, this, in my humble opinion, is the second best song ever penned by shit film maker pot smoking piss head poet Jim Morrison, turn the volume up and dance torso naked around your living room in your brown leather jeans, we love Jim Morrison and the Door's here in "Spindleville"

fellow stocker leighton is selling his super cool triumph chop, i love this bike, and especially those handle bars, they proper rock, this bike is a very well built beauty and heres the link if you have cash burning in your pocket, this bike is featured on the front cover of this months issue of BACK STREET HERO'S

Good luck with the sale leight!


ive Taxed MOTED and insured the fat lesbian and she was screaming to be ridden, so i went up to "stormin the castle" to meet my crazy scotch friends, the fat lesbian is a mental bike to ride, fast, handles, and does 176.3 miles exactly between fill ups, and how do i know, because the fuel warming light dont work, so it didnt come on and i ran out of gas in the road works on the M1 south, big thanks to Simon for stopping and giving me a lift to the petrol station and taking me back to my bike, and thanks to Deb for not telling me the fuel warning light didint work, you owe me another coffee, ha ha, any how its something ive not done for a long time as the bikes ive had in the past only do about 50 miles between fill ups if i was lucky.  I enjoyed the ride up and the ride down, i got stopped by the "GHimPs" "GEORDIE HIGHWAY i m PATROL s", for reasons im not sure, however another 20 miles down the road the rozzers pulled me over telling me the "GHimPs" had put a marker on me and he was unsure why, anyhow i got the usuall check over and details taken i was also asked if it was my bike, you know the usual shit.  All in all a good time was had i love the fat lesbian, she rides well, im out and about again on wednesday heading south on the tipple run, happy days.

I just bought me a donor for the urban surfer, I’ve been looking for a good one for a while but they are getting hard to find, I went up to view the bike that had been described as immaculate, there were no lies in this advert, it was, and is, in mint condition, full service history and a bundle of spares thrown in, so we had a fight in the garden to secure a price i was willing to pay, you all know I’m a tight git, the final deal is, a large bundle of cash, three cups of coffee and i promise to let Deb, the beautiful lady selling me the Buell, take a ride on the surfer when she's all finished up, happy days.


some cool riding shots of me on the pimp taken by captain oates as he was jockey shifting through traffic, what a hero, cheers mister oates

Songs are full of metaphors, this song has many that reflect my past, I’ve never played a guitar but I’ve travelled the length and breadth of the UK looking for work, no one wanted to hire a fat wanker, I eventually found permanent work where my journey started in the north west, fortunately for me Sainsbury’s had room for one more lazy fat wanker, plus I like this tune, its Elvis at his best, happy days.
