Where no man has gone before
« on: 23.06. 2015 16:23 »
Right now at an event where William Shatner is going to take off on a ride from Aurora, IL to Los Angeles on the motorvehicle (motorcycle?) shown in the photo. Five minutes from my home. Try rivetmotors.com . Shatner owns the company, as I understand it.

Well  "make it so" OOPS wrong series , that's yet to happen  so I hope old Tiberius makes it (with perhaps a Klingon on the starboard bow)

thanks for that Richard, me being a fan if not a full blown Trekie

Am I unique in having heros stretching from Dan Dare via Jet Morgan to Jean Luc -- or just sad, actually I'm damned if I care, I just enjoyed them even the Horlicks adverts
All the best - Bill

1959 Rocket Gold Flash - blinged and tarted up  would have seizure if taken to  Tesco

If anyone is interested, I think I have the only video on the web of Shatner's trike actually moving. it seems they are trailering it from stop to stop across the country. In the video you will see that the steering seems not to be working.

 Looked interesting, but as you say, unless he builds a freeway with the cambers in the right places, it's gonna be a boring or very bumpy ride... *smile*
Started building in about 1977/8 a on average '52 A10 -built from bits 'n pieces never resto intended -maybe 'personalised'
Have a '74 850T Moto Guzzi since '92-best thing I ever bought doesn't need a kickstart 'cos it bump starts sooooooooo(mostly) easy
