Rollerburn Blur

2 minutes in and Stevie Gee has already stabbed himself with a scalpel. He was obviously in pain but seemed to more worried about the blood on his Converse. Apart from a bloodied rollergurl thigh from a drag-race crash, there were no other injuries. It was destined to be an 'interesting' evening.
The bike show selection was great, but sadly I didn't have enough time to give each of them the licking - or even photographing they deserved. There's a ton of nice snaps HERE. BP
UPDATE: There are a bunch of videos from spectators posted/linked over at Sideburn Magazine facebook.

Anyone know whose the bike on the right hand side (above the wilsons tank) is, or have anmore pics of it?

Saw it arrive and thought it was simply ace

Mick P said...

Pretty sure that was one of Sonic Seb's Paris crew. Seb's was the Beemer with the black dustbin fairing.

Do you mean the yellow Yamaha? It's Gary T's, Champion XS650 Roberts replica. Yes, very tidy. G

rustyli150 said...

Nope the one in the dark. above the tank.

For some reason I thought it was french, not sure why so parisian sounds about right.

Sideburn Magazine said...

Ah, sorry. It could well be one of the Blitz bikes, like Mick says, who came from Paris with Sonic Seb (pictured at the top on the dustbin-faired BMW). G

Thanks, the Roberts replica is nice but it tends to be patina that catches my eye / floats my boat.

Managed to hunt (read google) Seb on choppertown forum so will see if I can get in touch.

Think it may be a serious inspiration on my current project!

You don't happen to have a link to a bigger picture of it than the one in the collage?

Cheers

Sideburn Magazine said...

I can verify Li150 (are you hinting at Lambretta affiliation?),
Yes it's a R100/7 BMW & was over from Paris via Derby, with Sonic Seb on the U-Boat (at the top) with the Blitz crew to make a new Edwin promo to follow on from this one:

Ace, stocked up on side-porn at RB, will dig those out.

Still buzzing from Saturday, amazing day. You pulled off a corker!

Rupert Paul said...

Hey Gary well done. A unique event, completely mad. Who knows where it will end up? I'm glad I was at the first one.

stevie coles said...

nice to meet you mick, didnt get to ask you if that is a westwood rugby shirt as ur icon?.

Mick P said...

Likewise Stevie. It all went so quickly with so much more to say and do. The shirt is my old one from my days at the mighty Oundle RFC in Northants.

stevie coles said...

ahh!.
played many a mini rugby festival there!.
the knocks must have sent you crazy, givin up the beautiful nene valley for stinky ol rome!!.

Sideburn Magazine said...

Stevie
I dont believe you ever played 'mini' Rugby.
When were you ever mini?
I heard you were such a large baby that you were born in several sections which the midwife then had to bolt together.

Ben im lost for words!, out in the fens, there's no such thing as bolts. I was woven together with reeds and straw!.
