The 2009 remake Brighton Rock (due for release in 2010) of the classic 1947 Attenborough film - this time set in 1964 against the background of the Mods and Rockers. These photos were shot during filming at Eastbourne in October 2009. Can't wait for this one!

How sweet is it when the coolest of the custom bike magazines reviews your product? Very! Her Majesty's Thunder is featured in the "Reviews" section of the latest issue of DicE magazine. Get your copy here and read about how the Queen kicked arse in a bar wearing HMT. Oh, and we also just got some soon to be sold out back issues too.

I love how designers of the past imagined the designs of the future. The racer dustbin fairings of yesteryear seemed to me a glimpse of their view of the future. The fairings also increased the speed of the motorcycle so it was definitely a graceful marriage of form and function.
Apparently you can still buy these retro-vintage motorcycle fairings today at Airtech-Streamlining.com . I like the Gilera 125, and the MV Agusta. Though, nothing compares to Evan's magnificent hand-beaten aluminium fairing.
