Neo Gothic

Ancillaries that were once rocking horse shit oddities, are now mass-produced catalogue parts. At the click of a mouse you too can buy a previously unobtanium mudguard / tank / seat / light. Faux vintage spray-on rust - what next? The previous genuine antique NSU Max rear light my XS used to sport got shaken to death, so I need a replacement (not obligatory for Dirt Quake chopper racing, but I plan to put this bike back on the road after the event). Current contenders are a Brat Style pussycat light ( eBay is over-run with repros) or this B&Q semi-detached Munsters special. BP

Reckon if I ever built a chopper I'd go for weird shit like on Mexican busses...how's about a plastic dolls ass with sphyncter mounted LED?

OK, maybe not...

RE: Bunny bott- Nice one Ben, ahead of the game...reckon for ultimate class: a small servo motor to spread cheeks/contort face too'd be the way to go!

Hell, might have to rig something up for my superduke (tho I'd like a Mutley off Wacky Races with "yuk, yuk" sound effects too)
MOTable? Hmmm...worth a go.

where can you buy that aerosol cobweb stuff?
And does anybody make a 12V dry-ice machine I wonder? Still so much to do!
