Ciao Caddy freaks....

I have once a long time ago registered here and totally forgott about it but now DP's back (with a new "nick")....

Living just outside Enköping (Sweden) on my small farm Mosta Hill where I build Street Fighter Bikes for friends & customers when I don't work as an Aprilia dealer at Starol Racing www.starol.se where I 10 huors a day, 6 days a week, 52 weeks a year do what I love, sell and service one of the worlds best motorcycle, Aprilia. Of course I drive a 2006 Aprilia 1000R Tuono.....

At home I have an old Volvo T23 Tractor for winter chores but I have had some plans to Hot Rod it a bit with Moon Discs up front, chrome exhaust, Cad 59 taillights, Bell 4-spoke steering wheel, 32 King Bee headlights, 50's & 60's performance stickers and a slight Hot Rod attitude but that's another project....

To be able to haul bikes, junk, garbage, parts, friends and sometimes my Galgo Vovven I bought a 2000 Skoda Pick Up in 2004, it was in a sad state but I drove it like this for a year....

Last summer I took the sander to the car and repainted it in grey suede, cut the springs, fitted a set of 6x14" Golf rims with 165-50-14 Bridgestones (a sponsor) but the car handled like a horse cart and when I loaded a bike in the bed and even worse towing a trailer it was close to dangerous so during last winter I fitted new (stock) springs to it and it's still on them, when I get some time over I will fit a new set of cut down springs to get a nicer look, I have a set of Volvo 760 Wagon helper "air bags" that I will fit inside the rear springs so I can load a bike and tow a trailer. For 2006 the suede paint has been redone, a set of Seat Ibiza TDI 6X15" steelies has been fitted with 175-55-15" Bridgestone (Smart rears) and Moon Discs, it has also got Milotech chrome door handle and mirror covers, a thin chrome strip in the nose and on the tailgate to brighten up the flat look a bit, otherwise it uses the stock 1.3 MPI East Block motor and gives me great milage and can do 150kph with a bike in the bed, perfect Shop Hack but beeing heavily involved in the Hot Rod, Kustom and Street Fighter scene I need a daily driver with an attitude......

Some pix from the spring cleanup of the car, a flat paintjobb take's a beating here in Sweden during winter with snow & salt on the roads so I had to go over it again this spring.....

So there's still some work to be done but summer is here with Drag Racing, Rod Runns, Bike meets and a ton of this stuff: http://www.skitskrajmc.com/movies/klipp%20(6).wmv so I'll keep updating the progress of the Shop Hack....

There's also an ex-hippie VW Baywindow sitting around waiting to be HoodRided but that's also another project....

jimmy in da house:

Just to set it all straight so you guys don't get dissapointed when you don't get to see pix of (IMHO god awefull) ass-in-the-air German stylee street fighters, what I do is building Strippers, stripped down beautyfull women (read bikes) making them look as sexy, nasty, raw, hot as possible and putting them in cages. What I do is build Stunt Strippers, cut down, pizza rear sprockets, motor cages, 12'o clock bars, grip tape tanks, MX bars with an overall raw look. My own bike (that's not 100% ready for the camera) is a 2001 Aprilia RSV 1000 R with most clothing stripped off, motor cage, MX Fat Bars, Cad 59 taillights, painted suede grey with some serious tattooing (read pinstriping) done to whats left of her Italian body .....
