Stevie Coles

Stevie Coles, UK's short track #28, IS Rollerball. His bollox are bigger than those stainless steel lumps used to score points in the 1975 film of the same name (judgement here is made from witnessing his riding style rather than peeking down his frontage). I made some snaps of him and his machine that runs on a fuel mix of pink diesel and Nitromors paint-stripper, last year at Scunthorpe, intending to do a Sideburn magazine feature, but his mutoid Honda Bros (or Hawk as it's called in the States), has since morphed into something even more brutal. We've already got enough material for SB#5, so it will have to be SB#6, by which time it will have probably grown teeth and three heads. BP

Fuckin terrific Bros. 650 or 400? In my head, he bungees a stickered topbox onto the tail and despatches it round London town during the week. Race on Sundays, more drops than Santa on Mondays, and hang that arse out round Hyde Park Corner....

Suerte, DW

(Having lived & ridden in both London & Amsterdam), it is my dream when I am a millionaire (ha ha) to organize a dispatch rider GP, & a pizza delivery boy GP. The rules are obvious, the entertainment value priceless.

I like to think he is bolted to the bike with the throttle set to 9000 rpm and the clutch auto releases when the tape goes up !
When you look into the visor it is the steely glare of Jaws from a bond movie !!!!

- I'm definitely coming out to play next season, wether it be on the SB FT project bike, my CCM with wets, or a Raleigh Griffter with some lolly sticks flicking the spokes.
It's not what you've got it's how you ride it.
