"MILO, 1942 HARLEY DAVIDSON WL" [BY 'MILOHISCOX' ON POOTUBE] . . . . I LOVE THIS SHORT BIT OF VINTAGE FUN, A BLOKE, HIS SCOOT, A PADDOCK AND A LOVELY BLUE SKY . . . . I REMEMBER BEING QUITE TAKEN WITH THE 'DICE' FEATURE ON THIS OLD FLATTY . . . . PARTICULARLY THE 'BIKE ON SIDE IN MUD' SHOT . . . . 'BOYS OWN' TYPE STUFF THIS IS.
'N.F.B', no fucking bullshit, is what this iddy biddy WL represents, zero lights, minimal comfort rigid frame, no front guard [fender if you're a Seppo] and a thwacking old side valve doing it's stuff down in the belly of the beast . . . . just getting out there and getting dirty, a beautiful and honest thing, fuck it, it's only a bike, get it filthy dirty, give the bastard a tub and Bob's your mother's brother. Apparently all those bloody Widows are grubby by nature . . . . kidding guys, please don't send the 'lads' around . . . . I didn't mean it . . . . I promise !!!
