NameOily Smudges
Basic InfoAnyone who’s ever undertaken a little home maintenance of their car or bike whilst referring to a workshop manual will be familiar with “oily smudges”, the indelible marks that reveal the history of the work you carried out on your pride and joy. After all, a clean workshop manual will never have been used in anger (often literally) and, we hope, these pages will inspire you to make more oily smudges on your own is a celebration of the by-products of those oily smudges, the magnificent, inspired creations that are the manifestation of the vision of its creators. Sometimes, these will be the work of whole teams working to a client’s brief but (hopefully) often, these will be the results of an individual, hand-crafting or assembling a collection of disparate parts that, somehow, combine to create something unexpected and remarkable.
What Blog Means To YouI have three classic motorcycles all of which need to be restored before they can be ridden. Presently, due to financial restrictions, I cannot begin work on any of them. Blogging about the classic motorcycle scene allows me to participate in it and learn more about them as I go. One day, I hope to make enough money from it to allow me to pursue my dream of restoring my classic motorcycles and blogging about the stories of their restorations.
