The Rust Bucket BSA Project Inspiration
While I’m finishing the Monster, I’ve had a lot of things rattling around in my brain for this Rust Bucket / BSA Project of mine. Firstly, I found out it’s a 1958 BSA A7 or A10.

Hand stamped VIN number close up- this is one thing I love very much about this bike. It might have been bondo-ed… Continue Reading »

A)Having to have a Tumblr acct to assign a name to any of my messages makes me feel like a creeper as I dont have one and therefor am forced to be resigned to “anonymous.” But, alas, I’ll live. B)I’m not sure if you’ve heard of Pintrest. It seems like the sort of site you would enjoy based on the formatting of your blog. In either case, I find a heap of my “Life’s a Ride” section of my acct comes from your site & I’d like to thank you for your inspiration. Please, keep it up.
Firstly… thanks for writing! A) Tumblr ask form doesn’t allow you to include links, but you can always use the submit page… then you can your email or whathaveyou.

Or you can email me… just delete the spaces out of this address and bam -> alicia @ themotolady.comB) I am aware of pinterest, though I have not used it very much. Mostly because I’ve already got about 800 other sites I use and… Continue Reading »
