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

sam is my 16yr old godson and is well into the bikes, he came over to benny's with me and made me a headlight mount and fitted said headlight, he also measured the front wheel spacers and cut them and fitted them, this is his first time in a proper workshop with big boy's tools, i think he did a fucking ace job, well done sunshine, if i wasn't so tight i'd pay you


went over to barnsley shauns today to put the engine and rear wheel in to the frame i bought off him, i think its looking rather dapper, big thanks to shaun for his superb welding skills, i owe you a beer at the T party! !
