In 2008 as I started building the Knuckster motor Sir Paul McCartney’s head went missing. It was a Sir Paul wax doll’s head – and it was left on a train when being transported to be auctioned … The head was made in the 1960’s and had been on display at the Louis Tussauds Museum in Great Yarmouth. In this photo the heads of my Knuckster motor is missing because I wanted to take a photo of how the piston domes are milled out for the valves and also the cutouts for the exhausts.
The best thing about the Knuckster's heads are that since they're both rotated clockwise – so are the outtakes for the valves and exhausts.

Nah, I don’t think so...

The Kinks never fit any scene – they created their own; a dark, sarcastic and subtle protest against all pop culture. And they went from doing genius concept albums in the 1960’s to full-blown rock operas in the 1970’s.
This is Matte’s Generator Shovel, and I think this bike is just like The Kinks in more than a few ways, not only as a subtle protest. I shot it for DicE sometime this summer, and since then Matte did some upgrades, so I have to go shoot it again before it gets in the mag. So until then – how soon is when?
