Dawn...


Working on new bicycle...


The Cave is a mess, because I'm moving to Australia again but meanwhile I want to finish this bike. "The Psycho surfer". An old G.A.C. Crosseta sandblaster frame with parts from here and there as the Honda PXR front end with a 3G tyre....
The main idea is to add PVC tubes to transport the bodyboard with a "Mad Max" touch. I hope to have time to finish.

My new bike

If you usually take a look at my instagram, you've seen a picture or video of it. After arriving from Australia, I had no bike and eager to ride something with two wheels again so I bought a cheap toy. The Yamaha Sr 250 is a cheap and funny bike, easy and fast for customize in a little scrambler version. Yes, this is my new little toy, AKA "Desert Rat"


Should I stay or should I go

No, I'm not talking about the Brexit...

Long long time since my last post at the beginning of 2015. Lot of things have happened, although not of great relevance. It has been a difficult time, especially when I had to return from Australia due to problems in my leg again. I was for 3 days at the Hospital there but I wasn't sure that the problem would improve after leaving the Hospital so I decided to come back to Spain for a better recovery.

I was happy to see family and friends again, but inside me, I felt quite sad to leave that country in which I felt happy, free...and why not? Complete. Once I read about Ulysses syndrome I thought that this low mood it was due to leave Australia. I was again having to start from scratch in the country where I had been all my life, but nothing was the same for me since then. I didn't have any bike, the cave was a mess...I was lost in my own place and of course I could not find sense to continue with a blog called "The Chopper Cave" because I didn't have any chopper and the cave was forsaken....

So...should rename the blog, leave, suggestions....

Sarcasm...



All right Hipsters, this funny vid for the next "The One motorcycle show" 2015 in Portland. It's a brilliant critique to all those blokes who like to appear on videos with trendy clothes and perfect beards, talking about how good you feel when you're dreaming riding your next build in the garage with extra grinder sparks with a cool song.Worrying thing is that today a teaser has become a trend. Indeed today sometimes to be a famous bike builder, you don't need to grease or burn your hands to make a bike, just need to be cool.

I admit that I also like to enjoy a good video of people working on his bike in the garage...or riding in lost places. It made me remember some old videos recorded by a friend 7 or 8 years ago in our dark and "secret" old place...hahahaha, we were like the Beavis and Butthead mechanics. Oh...the good times!

Quick trip to Byron Bay

The last week I made a quick trip to Byron Bay (NSW), at the most easterly point of the australian mainland it's just 186 Km from Brisbane with 1 hr time difference between QLD and NSW from November to March because QLD doesn't have daylight time saving.
Around all this sweet town you breathe surfing and it's like living in a hippie community in the 21st century, the youthful vibe is mixed with the relaxation of its former inhabitants. Faded colored shirts are also mixed with an expensive and high quality of life. In addition to its beaches and its environment, the most representative of Byron Bay is the lighthouse.
Nice place to visit with your girl or go there with some friends to have a really cool time...




The Hotel pool was cool...

The visit to the Deus Ex Machina store in Byron Bay is a must

Day Off

Whenever I have a day off, I attempt to escape to Gold Coast.

Putting a switch at Ipswich


These days I'm working in Ipswich, putting the Xmas lights in all the towns of the county. Never had put so many switches and Christmas lights in life, as during all these days. Holly shit! 
The work is a bit boring and something hard by the amount of working hours (8 a.m. to 22 p.m.). During the morning in the workshop prepairing the panels, lights...and at 4 or 5 p.m. we're installing all that Christmas shit.




Sometimes in the workshop I feel like in Mad Max





But the good things about being here now is that just in five minutes with the UTE there is the best Dragster circuit in Australia and a burnout track every Saturday eve.
