Product Review: Maidstone Motoliner alloy wheel straightening

Maidstone Motoliner alloy wheel straightening Time tested: n/a What’s good? There are now an estimated 295 square miles of potholes on UK roads* and I suspect the front wheel of my 1990 Harley-Davidson FXR fell victim to one of the blighters some time ago.

Product Review: Thor Copper and hide faced hammer

Thor Copper and hide faced hammer, size 1. £13.86 Time tested: 12 years What’s good? This 830g soft-faced hammer has aided removal of countless stubborn swingarm bolts, bushes, axles and other parts for over a decade. Heavy enough to deliver a substantial blow but soft enough to distort or mark instead of damaging the part you’re hammering, it’s an iron ...

Boots Review: Harley Davidson Darnel boots

Harley Davidson Darnel boots £119.90Time tested: 600 miles/two months What’s good? The older I get (46 last week) the less willing I am to faff about with overcomplicated motorcycle kit. In my view, spending 15 minutes getting ready is 15 minutes less time on the bike. At first glance the Harley Darnel’s appear to be standard seven hole boots but ...

How to Build A Cafe Racer £20Time tested: one month What’s good? Whether you were around at the time of the original ton-up boys, or have been hypnotised by one of the many hundreds of achingly cool (some might say pretentious) blogs and websites, it seems we can’t get enough of cafe racers at the moment. So if you’ve got ...

King Dick 3/8in drive 17-piece socket set (equivalent modern 15-piece set £152.87) Tester: Ped Baker Time tested: 10 years What’s good: When it comes to hand tools, I follow two simple rules – buy the best I can afford and if possible, buy British.
