Feature Bike: Nathan Moses’ 1950 Harley Davidson


27 Feb

Our photo shoot and feature story on Nathan Moses’ cool retro 1950 Harley Davidson appeared in issue 20 of Wild Aussie Choppers (aka Ultimate Choppers). Nathan bought the bike from the USA and shipped it over for less than he could have built it for here. He tells us that, luckily, the bike came as good as, or better than advertised. Nice one!

Boasting a ’49 Springer front end, 84ci stroker twin and enough retro style to win anyone over, the bike enjoys an eight-page spread in the magazine. Be sure to check it out, on-sale now!

As always, we’ve got a series of FREE desktop wallpaper images for you to enjoy and strobist fans will find our lighting information and EXIF data on each image’s caption, too. Simply CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails below to visit our Flickr page where all the goodies lay in wait for your visit.

Feature Bike: Stef Niceski’s 1954 Triumph Thunderbird


15 Feb

Sadly issue 21 of Wild Aussie Choppers (aka Custom Choppers) is the last to come out. On the bright side, it contains our feature story and photo shoot on Stef Niceski’s 1954 Triumph Thunderbird, pictured here! Be sure to check it out, on-sale now.

Shot at the very cool 1346 Venice function centre in Waterloo, NSW Australia, Stef’s Trumpy was built over a period of two years “and a million beers”. The basis of the project was a partially disassembled 1954 Thunderbird that Stefan found in an old shed, complete with a tomato plant growing over it. You’d never know it today.

Feature Car: Matthew Sharp’s 1930 Model-A Ford


12 Feb

Gracing the cover of issue 20 of Heavy Duty Hot Rods magazine (aka Genuine Hot Rods) is Matt Sharp’s awesome chopped and channeled 1930 Model-A Ford. Built by Matt and Tony Webster from Webby’s Speed Shop in Carrington, NSW Australia, the chunky metalflake orange tudor runs a mild Holden V8 for reliability and cruising grunt.

As you can see, this beast is an homage to the heyday of hot rodding, including tall bias ply white walls, Moon tanks and good old rodder’s ingenuity in making seemingly incompatible parts fit together to make a glorious whole. Be sure to see much more of the car in issue 20, on-sale now!

Feature Car: Davin Cochrane’s LS1-Powered LH Holden Torana


06 Feb

Two red Toranas in one issue? Yep, Xtreme Holdens issue 51 contains two red LH/LX Toranas, but they are different animals. Les Chadwick’s 355ci-powered hatch is a total classic Australian street machine, whereas Davin Cochrane’s four-door, pictured here, has gone an altogether different route.

Powered by an LS1 alloy V8 and T56 and wearing a set of Simmons FR rims, Davin’s LH is the epitome of retrotech flavour. You can read all about the radical modern transformation that took place in issue 51, over a generous nine page feature.

Feature Car: Paul Lonergran’s Insane 1928 Dodge Rat Rod


04 Feb

Issue 20 of Heavy Duty Hot Rods (aka Genuine Hot Rods) is on sale now and boasts four photo shoots and feature stories by Hosking Industries, including one on Paul Lonergran’s insane 1928 Dodge Rat Rod, pictured here. Paul’s beastie has been built on the cheap, using parts from around his shop and home collection and Paul claims he did it all for a measly $42!

The phantom ’28 Dodge is powered by a high-revving 327ci small-block Chevrolet V8 and the car features more patina than a rusty boat anchor with corrosion and rust at every turn. Rat rods don’t come much more genuinely ratty than Paul’s. Who’d have it any other way?!
