A biopic about the journey and memoir of the then 23 year old Ernesto Guevera, before he became the famous revolutionary Che Guevera. The film recounts the 1952' journey of him and his mate Alberto Granado on a Norton 500 across South America ... A beautifully made film.

"On Any Sunday" - I can watch this 1972 flick over and over again .., from the director who brought you one of the first and most influential 1966 surf documentary/movie - "The Endless Summer".
It's been credited as one of the best and most important motorcycle documentary. The film follows the lives of motorcycle racers and its enthusiasts.
Mr Steve 'Cool' McQueen along with Mert Lawwill, M Smith and other racers from the late 60's and early 70's are in it..
Full with bikes from that era !!

Seat pan done,for now. Need to do minor adjustment on the seat springs and pan bottom mounting. Completely hand-built from sheet metal after doing many templates for it.. Takes many hours, I am incorporating the rear tail lights into the rear section of the seat pan and running a detachable internal wires that can be easily take off/on.

.. the itch is still there. Thought it'll be gone by now but it's still there.
But it is also that time of the year again, .. " The Hungry Ghost month" - the 7th Lunar month of Chinese Calendar (check here).
The old philip cd player in the room is on some ZZ Top tunes.. That jacket is hanging on my left, right above the quarter shell. Those Gloves is just right beside me, also left ... parallel with the Mac that I am looking at,.. on the table.
Took a quick glance at my old wristwatch again .. It's exactly 45 more minutes to midnight ... should I or shouldn't I ? .......

For my buddies and to those who haven't watch this McQueen movie, go out there and get yourself the DVD. Its worth your money. Again, Mr Cool himself is riding the 'unknown' grey bike. The so-called unknown-grey- bike is actually a Triumph!! Just look at him 'runnin' on full speed being chased by german soldiers on bikes and some with side cars are a real treat to the eyes and motorcycle fans. Machine guns trottin' rat-tatt-tatt and he made that 10-footer-jump on the Triumph near the swiss border !!! Lovely !!! ..
Now .., where did I saw that ad of an Old triumph for sale before? ...., I need to think hard ...
