My buddy Simon has had custom lettering moulded into some of his tyres by the manufacturer, but I can't say what it says upon them? Roll Eyes

Yeah, if I was keeping the bike I'd be tempted, but can't think what I'd have.

I fancy this, I'm not into bling, but something on big tyres looks OK

I remember the cars in Dave Bell's cartoon strip in the back of Street Rodder magazine having words like Big & Little or Grunt or Fat written on the tyres.
Now you can buy custom white rubber lettering for your tyres -a posher version of the individual stick-on ones available in the 70s.
Cool or naff? What words would you have on your bike or car?

Been out and about on the trike, local vintage rally today. I've noticed I have a high speed whine, and 1st gear roughness. I'm hoping its the axle, but not really sure, so I guess the next step is to drop the oils to see if there is any glitter in there. Bugger...

This was it this afternoon.
Sprayed the header tank again.
Sprayed the front wheel arch with the last drops of the old batch of paint -I sprayed a test strip of metal with old & new & the new lot is very, very slightly brighter. I don't think it'll notice by the time it's lacquered & polished.
The rust killing solution on the chassis is still wet in patches. I know from the last time I used it, that it needs several days to properly dry.
So although Mr Baychimp arrived, there wasn't a lot we could do. Ended up taking the grille shell off as it's the wrong green & needs sanding, rust proofing on the inside, (the bottom is a bit of a water trap), & re-spraying. It'll have to be done outside, but hopefully we're in for a few more weeks of warm weather. Taking it off also gives me access to paint the front of the chassis.
Yes, the engine is in wonky. It's sat on one engine mount at the moment. I took the other off to powder coat it & to paint the chassis around it.
Yes, there's only one headlight too! I hacksawed the other mount off because they need turning by 45 degrees to give more clearance on full lock. I'll take the other off, then weld them both back on in the right place once I can roll the truck out of the garage a bit.

Ha ha Smiley
I was talking to Baychimp this afternoon, saying that the paint I've got for the doors might be a very slightly different shade of green. Obviously the answer is to spray them in mud, then no-one will notice Smiley
Think that was on it's very first outing, to the Surrey Street Rodders' Wheels Day show, back in 2013.
Lunatic was driving. The passenger door latch pin had vibrated loose, so that's me with my elbow crooked over the top of the door, holding it shut all the way home.
When I get fed up & think it's getting nowhere, it's good to look back at photos like that & see just how far it's progressed. "It's not a rat rod, it's just not finished yet" Smiley
