236 is a happy number. Trust us, this is a real mathematical thing although if we tried to explain it you might be asleep before the end of the sentence. Instead, we bring you issue #236 of 100% Biker, which is also a happy little number.
The cover and centrespread belongs to Mark Shell’s gorgeous Ultima Shovelhead that makes bling beautiful and not tacky. Elsewhere we have three Suzukis, each very different. Kai Hirst of Loyalty Custom Choppers has built a GS500 chopper which pays homage to Indian Larry; Wido brings a new and fresh angle to the venerable GS550 while Chris has made a Bandit into a hooligan mile muncher now worthy of its name. We’ve also found a new Indian Scout that would be recognisable to Oscar Hedstrom, the company’s founder, plus a stunning BMW streamliner that’s competing in the Sultans of Sprint series, as well Joolz’s purplelicious Harley Sportster.
We bring you huge – and we mean huge! – coverage of the Farmyard Party, while we’ve also been to the Stone Circle Show, NCC London’s Diamond Day, Ride of the Ruperts, Trike Design’s Open Day, Twisted Iron’s Autojumble, the Manchester Bike Show, Chesterfield Rock & Bike Show, Sarum Bikers’ Spring Show and the Homegrown Custom & Classic Show. That’s a massive ten events covered in depth! We hope #236 makes you happy, too.
