A few weeks ago I received a phone call out of the blue from Mark Hawwa. For those of you that don’t know Mark, he is the guy behind Australian Cafe Racers, Throttle Roll and the Distinguished Gentlemans Ride, amongst other things.

At first I thought he was crazy, but then I thought if anyone could pull it off, it was Mark. Firstly, he has a lot of friends who are very handy with a wrench, and secondly, he is one determined son of a bitch.
