New Friend

Time and again I am amazed at how well this blog has expanded my sphere of friends. It's alway pleasant to get a new follower or an email from a reader. Many of us in the classic bike business enjoy working with our hands attempting to get in touch with a less modern age. It is undeniable though that the internet has done wonders at unifying us hobbyists and providing access to tools, parts, even whole motorcycles that otherwise would be inaccessible.

Every now and then, you meet a super cool dude that is very talented. His talent is only superceded by his generosity. Roland is a fantastic metal worker and creates some awesome custom parts. His current project is a BSA single based bobber that even unfinished is amazing.

Roland's atelier is located in perhaps the most unlikely places- Britanny, France. You need to check out his blog- Outta Control. I can't wait to see the final bike!
