Nicholas P Boyland

Nick Boyland grew up on a British army Garrison in Western Germany.

He restored and built his first motorcycle at the tender age of 16; a Triumph tiger Cub. Lapping in the valves on his dressing table, using grinding compound he made himself from toothpaste and emery cloth, and re-winding the alternator with copper wire scavenged from old transformers.

The Amal carburettor; scavenged from an old BSA Bantam, had the jets braised up and drilled out on the patio with a 12 volt drill until the mixture was, ‘just right’.

Nick developed a strong empathy with old British motorbikes which saw him, as a young man, riding a hard tailed, Tribsa (Triumph/BSA) hybrid Chopper, across much of mainland Europe.

He enjoyed the hospitality of numerous European bike clubs, in his extensive travels, which brought the adventures and experiences he interlaces into his fiction.

Now living in rural Somerset with his wife, children and dog, he is the proprietor of ‘Rhino trikes’ Motorcycle trike conversion specialists.

Nick has appeared on TV a number of times as engineering expert ‘Rhino’ in the Popular Channel Four programme: ‘Scrapheap Challenge’.

Nick’s company: Rhino trikes has a credit on the International Movie Database for supplying vehicles to Northern Girl productions, for use in the feature film: ‘The Zombie King’ Starring Corey Feldman and Edward Furlong.

Still working with trikes and custom bikes, Nick now rides a customised Harley Davidson 1450 Dyna-glide sport.
