    Yeah Julian was a character alright. I first met him at the Friendship Bridge going into Laos in October 2003
    "David whom I met on the Loas border from Australia. His maps helped me to cross back into Thailand by selling them."

    Queued up at the Friendship Bridge in October 93

    Later on at That Luang, Vientiane
    623140032_W2hf5-S.
    623140249_ysKFW-S.

    The construction of his trike is detailed here
    http://www.geocities.com/julianbowyer/C ... tion1.html
    the beer keg fuel tank was a beauty.
    In Oz he changed the motor from a VW Beetle to "a 1.6 dohc turbo Capri engine."

    Julian's adventures were quite amazing & it is a shame he never wrote a book about his trip! We all had a good time with him here in Chiang Mai, hanging out at the Sax Bar then (eh Saxonator?)
