Sideburn's BP and GI have shown up on the Biltwell website. These photos were taken at Perris in California when we were on our summer US tour. Thanks to Julian and everyone from Deus Ex Machina for organising such a memorable night.

GI is on Hayden Hell On Wheels' wonderful Triumph twin desert sled.
BP is on Mule Motorcycles' Yam 500, that Mule sold because it was too slow (it didn't seem it to us). He's chasing Hayden.

We wore and raced in Biltwell Gringo lids on this trip and were very impressed with the quality and fit. They feel much, much better than the $160 price tag suggests. G

Happy Halloween 2

Happy Halloween 1

Celebrate the night of undead, of ghouls, of monsters and of rampant one-eyed commercialism by buying this soon to be sold out forever art print of the Zombie Steve McQueen by Maxwell Paternoster.
It's printed black on recycled brown art stock.
Notice that McQueen/Hilts has accessorised his Triumph with a decapitated Nazi. They're the next big thing.

Every order gets a free sticker plus free a handful of Sideburn posters and flyers from past events.
Get yours in the Sideburn art department.

Remember, if you like Maxwell's work check out the Maxwell Paternoster book we have in stock.

You Should Have Gone to Specsavers

Completely off-message, but lots of non-Brits won't have seen this genius advert for a chain of high street opticians that have made the phrase 'You should have gone to Specsavers' an often-repeated phrase in UK. G
