Hi there, Scott AKA twistedfate_builds. Based in Melbourne, Australia. An electrician by day I have had a passion for all things 2 wheeled since my first bike a Honda Z50R as a youngster. Of course as you grow older the bikes get bigger until I could finally buy my first road bike and have never looked back since!
I have always had a fascination with cafe racer builds and really wanted to have a go at transforming a standard road bike into one, as usual there was a lot of talking and not much doing. Until one day my beautiful wife got sick of the talk and forced me to call about an ex police 1994 BMW K1100LT I had been looking at.
Next thing I knew I had purchased the bike and it was in pieces on the garage floor with me thinking what the hell have I done! For my first build I was really happy with the outcome so much so I decided to buy another ex police 1983 R100RT virtually as the K build came to an end which is currently a work in progress! This also called for a name change, originally theflyingbrick_au after purchasing my first “flying brick” and having no idea I would become hooked so quickly, and enough to commence a second build being an “airhead” it then made sense to switch to a more universal name. As I already had the TFB logo I shortlisted different words for each letter and straight away saw TwistedFateBuilds which virtually summed me and the builds up perfectly!
I’ve had an absolute blast learning on the builds and have met a lot of great friends from all over the world along the way.
There’s a great community out there so feel free to drop me a line and say Gidday 🙂
