PREVARICATION AND PROCRASTINATION HAVE BEEN MY SAVIOUR YET AGAIN . . . . HAVING COMMITTED, OR AT LEAST BELIEVING I HAD, TO DITCHING PROJECT SHOVELLER IN FAVOUR OF ANOTHER SKIRTSTER TO CHOPPERIZE, I PROCEEDED TO BURST INTO RAGING LETHARGY AND DID NOTHING . . . . JUST AS FUCKING WELL, THERE WAS A DIVINE PLAN IN PLACE FOR ME AS IT TURNED OUT . . . . IN THE GUISE OF THE UBER TALENTED HAIFLEY BROTHERS HARDTAIL KIT !!!
Nothing that is worth doing comes easily, somebody said that once I know it, and at this point, I figure they were onto and into something. Project Shoveller was beginning to look like hard work once I couldn't get onto the initially planned for bolt-on hardtail kit from the now de-funked, PapaClutch mob in the States, fuck it I thought out loud and put it up on the blog after discussing it with Mikeeyrat and Roscoe, another sporty will be perfect, easy as, cheaper, available and a whole bunch of other bullshit to bolster my case . . . . I somehow think that perhaps Wes, the one guy who was clearly and honestly peeved at my softcock turn-around, at this stage possibly got on the hotline to the man above and started concocting a most cunning plan to bring me back to the fold and onto the path of troublehead righteousness, and part one of the plan was a piece of the proverbial cake, just let him lapse into lethargy and apathy and the rest will follow . . . .
And it looks like the conspiracy has paid off as just this week the gifted guys at Haifley Brothers have released a perfectly wicked looking, almost stock hardtail kit to suit the shovel, complete with all the shit I adore, superb quality fabrication, factory appearance axle plates, top tier DOM tubing and the perfect, uninterrupted lines as though it had rolled out off Harley's own assembly line . . . . I took one look at the thing, read the blurb, and the entire Project Shoveller caper was back on track once and for all. If I'm going to do a rigid chop, then by fuck I'm gonna have it done good and proper. Later folks, I'm off to place my order before they sell out, giddy up !!
