I was sitting here, going through the forum looking at various things to be added into a new section, which will contain tips and tricks recorded over the years, and I ran into a couple of magician Brian's threads.
I decided, and I hope you don't mind Brian, to put all I could find into one thread, so everybody could have a look and appreciate your art.
If I missed any, please let me know, then I'll add them.
Or if you'd like me to remove it, I wont. :yo:

You guys!.....:)

Thank you for the appreciation of what it has been my pleasure sharing with all of you.
I'm glad you have enjoyed these threads and if any of them have served as an inspiration ..,then they will have served their purpose.

I've always (time permitting) 'new' ideas ., techniques and projects rattling around in my head and when the opportunity allows I'm very eager to 'get cracking'!

It's not 'too' far away to my 3000th post and as usual ....., I've "Something" planed:)

Before then though ...., I feel 'itchy fingers' coming on ........, nearly time to make something!!

Thanks again
Brian.

Nice post. I've been impressed by Brian's most recent posts but I didn't realize he had so many others. I would kill for the equipment you have. I get to be around it at suppliers all the time but I won't ever have it in my garage.

I'll second that- nice post Donsy, and very nice work Brian.

I've not been here very long, but the threads I've seen of Brian's machine work are a pleasure to see and read. As with anything, a person could have the same tools, but it's the imagination and talent that make the difference. Besides, Brian seems like a genuinely nice guy... :)

Look forward to more,

John

I´m speechless...
Brian, you´re making with your hands all the parts that a bike needs to become "perfect"! As that concept doesn´t exist, perfection, you´ll always have, to our delight, more of those beautiful works of art to create. That´s great news for us.
But at the same time, it made me realize how incomplete our F4s and Brutales come from standard. Those frame plates...those brutale´s screws...man, you inspiring us all to go further in the search for perfection.
Thank you. :yo:

Thank you ....,I've gone through those threads and extracted 2 or 3 photos of each to kinda put 'faces to names' with most of those links.

I've tried to 'group' them and hope they make sense and give a 'flavour'? of each of the threads.

Anyway..,I'm glad you are enjoying what each of my threads represent,
and I appreciate your very kind comments.
Brian:)

Really great stuff Brian, and thank you for posting a sampling of photos of your work.

Much like you, I had a hairpiece when in my 20's and 30's as well. I've since lost it... :)

Brian is an alien......that's the only explanation for this level of skill. I'm guessing he was the resident alien that helped the Egyptians build the pyramids, and later on taught Jimi Hendrix how to play electric guitar.......left handed, just for tricks.
