Randy is an ex Movie Stuntman.
I think he was the double of Richie Valens' brother. And still has the "Indian" Sporty from the film.
These bars were in his stash and are one-offs with original harley switches, grips and throttle.

The whole town smells like Cinnamon Graham's
I think these bikes were inspired by the South London biker scene of the early 80's.
You'd see them tearing round places like Norwood on cut down, big Jap bikes with drag bars. Ed had one.
Bikes got buried in forests, thrown in lakes etc, they were work bikes.
In 86 Kawasaki dropped The Black Eliminator 900.
South London went nuts!
Basically a Ninja in Bovver Boots.
I rode this to Brooklyn from Michigan
Corners get bigger on a Kawasaki.

The next year we met up in France, this time he was on his BMW WWII desert outfit and I watched in awe as he laced up my brother Milo's rear hub which had stripped all it's rivets at our furthest point from home in no time. He did this without taking his helmet & gloves off and once finished he stood up and said we had just met the Real IRA.... That being Irish Roadside Assistance.
Again he came over for last years Linkert Attacks UK in Cornwall.
Yesterday he went down on his knucklehead on some wet leaves and is now riding God knows what up in heaven.
Truly gutted and I know a lot of others are too.
Pictured here with Don Giulio & I on tip toes and Jim & Liam trying to look small.
